    Here's the first part of my review of Wonder Woman vs. Stevie Wonder.
    Relevance-When I tried to imagine it in my head, I almost took off some points for this, since the general tune and instruments that run through the whole thing don't really feel Wonder Woman-y or Stevie Wonder-y, but listening to it again, they actually add little Amazon bongos during Wonder Woman's verses and of course there's that killer brass during Stevie's part. Plus, these two really have nothing in common aside from the names, so I don't really know if a beat that perfectly encapsulates both of them the whole time could possibly exist. I applaud them for their commitment here.2.5/2.5
    Catchiness-It's not super catchy to me, aside from the brass in Stevie Wonder's first verse. 1.75/2.5
    Intensity-I know I keep bringing up the brass, but it really is awesome and adds intensity. Other than that part, it doesn't really get me too hyped up. 2/2.5
    Variety-As I mentioned before, they did a great job of spicing up what otherwise would've been a fairly "meh" beat. It also changes up every verse, not just when the different rappers are going, so I have to give full points here. 2.5/2.5
    Overall: I really appreciate that someone (probably Peter) must have listened to the original beat and thought "this is okay, but it could be way better" and then added the extra touches. Not an AMAZING beat, but not much to criticize. 8.75/10

    Wonder Woman-They had a lot of options to choose from here, and I have no problems with the design they went with. The blue hair tint is pretty cool. Full Points
    Stevie Wonder-I guess T-Pain wasn't winning to shave his beard. I can't give it a full pass, but he's a decently big-name celebrity and if that was his only demand, then I think you gotta take that deal. -0.5 Points
    Extras-The effect for "nine different kids with five different mothers" is awesome. I don't even care if Lilly doesn't look exactly like all of them, it's funnier this way anyway. Full Points

    Wonder Woman-She doesn't really attempt a Gal Gadot impression, but I think Wonder Woman, like Superman or Ash, is one of those characters that's had so many different voices over the years that I'm not going to critique them for just letting Lilly be herself. I know some people didn't like what she did with the character and find her annoying, but I think she's fun to watch in this battle and I have no problems with her portrayal. Full Points
    Stevie Wonder-T-Pain is extremely entertaining in this. I love the decision to have him never look at the camera. It's not a dead ringer, but it sounds enough like him.Full Points

    Wonder Woman's First Verse:
    Wonder Woman fly, I'm about to tell you why
    Okay for a set-up. At least there's a pun.
    Princess Diana, but this Lady don't die
    My rhymes are signed, sealed, and delivered on time
    You're a bald has-been, I'm in my Amazon Prime
    Really great reference mixing here.
    I tell you what I say, you bit your style from Ray!
    Nice subtle "What'd I say" reference.
    The grin and the shades and the king cobra head sway
    Okay, but probably could've been a better Ray Charles reference.
    Gods made me out of clay, then they broke the mold
    I like the wordplay here.
    I'm like Geena Davis, in a Justice League of my Own (Ow!)
    Pretty good as far as Justice League references could go.
    I Just Called to Say that you need to ditch the hair beads
    Good set-up.
    Lookin' like the Predator after some chemotherapy (Ha!)
    Kind of a basic insult, but it is accurate and funny.
    But don't be scared, I let bats down easy
    So you don't gotta worry 'bout a thing, little Stevie
    I'm a little confused as to exactly what she's saying here. It feels sort of like the opposite of a threat? Nevertheless, the references are clever.

    Verse Overview: Very little fluff, and some really great uses of references here. 9.25.

    Stevie Wonder's First Verse:
    I feel like this is the beginning (Ohhh...)
    But you have sucked for a few thousand years
    Not the most brilliant joke in the world, but it sounds awesome and it's funny.
    I'm a man who comes from a higher ground (Whoo!)
    And I'd say DC is a whole step down
    I love the subtle music reference. Good shit.
    I've been spitting out hits since both Fingertips
    So use the tip of your fingers and read my lips
    Really good. And sounds great with the brass
    Now how you gonna talk about a bat being blind?
    You need to echo-relocate to the 4th of July
    Pretty good.
    Because you're Miss Independent, or at least you try
    But your first story is you running off with a guy
    An example of how to do a fact statey line right. Sets it up in a way that just mentioning it really feels like an "oh shit" moment.
    Now let me tell the truth 'cause I know you got the lasso
    Good set-up.
    You got that wack flow, Sufferin' Sappho!
    Set-up is actually better than the punchline. It's not awful, but the Sufferin' Sappho reference feels a little wasted.
    I'm the ceremony master, blaster with the bars
    Just a step above filler.
    And I got more Grammys than your panties got stars
    I'm not super into this insult, since "Your panties have a lot of stars on them" isn't really a compelling insult to me. But I guess it's not the worst way of having Stevie boast about all his Grammys. And from the whole "you're a fake feminist icon" angle, I guess it can be viewed as a dig at Wonder Woman's costume. So I'd still call it a good line.

    Verse Overview: Very hard-hitting and clever for the most part. Also a 9.25, though it's a slightly lower 9.25 than Wonder Woman's first verse.

    Wonder Woman's Second Verse:
    Well, I'm a Woman who wonders what you're thinking
    Pretty simple, but not bad.
    Some of your records make me wish you started drinking
    An okay reference to Stevie's Teetotalism
    Even if I stick to the best selections
    Your YouTube videos raise some vision questions
    I absolutely love the double meaning here. And the visual gag is subtle and awesome.

    Verse Overview: Only one really great line at the end, but the rest is fine. 8.25-8.5.

    Stevie Wonder's Second Verse
    Your ignorant questions could never cause as much pain
    As never knowing how stupid you look in your airplane
    I love how they handled this joke. It's one of those lines that (unless they for some reason decided to put a different blind person against WW) is so specific to the two characters in the battle that it just feels perfect.
    You're a misguided, C-minus-on-the-Bechdel-Test joke
    I like the reference to the Bechdel Test, and this line flows well, but it's not super clever.
    And my worst song is better than your best TV show
    Basic insult.

    Verse Overview: Like Wonder Woman's second verse, only one great line, but otherwise doesn't quite hit back hard enough. 8.
