In celebration of Wonder Woman's "incredible impact" on popular culture over her 80 years, the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park will induct The DC Comics character into the Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame.

The virtual event will go live on YouTube at 4 p.m.

"The virtual event will be chock-full of all the things that make Wonder Woman the fan-favorite icon she is," said David Glanzer, spokesman for San Diego Comic Convention, the parent organization of the Comic-Con Museum. "The induction is also a celebration featuring some very special guests, a look at her history and some wonderfully emotional remembrances."

Wonder Woman joins past inductees, the caped crusader of justice -- Batman -- and the beloved ghost-gobbling icon, PAC-MAN.

"Wonder Woman is one of the most enduring feminist icons in fiction, who has paved the way for countless others that have followed in her Amazonian footsteps," a museum statement read.
