Wonder Woman

WW stands for Wonder Woman. Considered by many to be the greatest female superhero of all time, Wonder Woman first appeared in comics in 1941 and has gone on to star in several notable films and TV shows.

Depictions of the Amazing Amazon have varied over time, but most media portray Wonder Woman as a superpowered princess who hails from Themyscira (also known as Paradise Island).

2. What does WW stand for re: directions?

Wrong Way

When you're headed in the incorrect direction, WW stands for "wrong way." You might receive this acronym from friends, family members, or co-workers, when they realize you've whiffed on following their directions. (Or, they're trying to prematurely stop you from going the WW.)

Gamers might also receive WW in gaming chat, when their teammates see they are going the wrong way. For example, if you take off in the wrong direction for a boss battle, the rest of your party might tell you that you're going the WW.
