Wonder Woman may be saving the world on the big screen right now, but Krystyna Skarbek was busy saving the world decades ago in World War II. This Polish/British spy was the definition of badass, and her actions in Poland and France make her totally worthy of the title of “superhero.”

10. She’s A Daughter Of A Count
Krystyna Skarbek was born in Warsaw in 1908 to a count and a wealthy banker’s daughter. She grew up a tomboy with a strong sense of self and confidence. But most importantly, she was good at keeping secrets.
