Wonder Ostrich

It looks like Diana's a cyborg and they unscrewed her top half and screwed it on a different pair of cybernetic legs.  She's like the superheroine version of an AT-ST from Star Wars.  Though she still can't top

When you're late for your first archery lesson and you don't have time to change out of your... um... super glued pajama pieces?
