Looks like strength from Hera or Kryptonian blood is not required to compete in American Ninja Warrior.

History was made as a stuntwoman completed the Los Angeles Qualifier for Season 8 premiere of American Ninja Warrior in style.

Jessie Graff is no stranger to working stunts on big projects. She has worked in X-Men: First Class and Bridesmaids. Graff has also worked on stunts in popular television shows such as Agents of SHIELD, Sons of Anarchy, and most recently Supergirl. 

The stunt woman made her presence known on American Ninja Warrior by becoming the first woman to conquer the new 14 foot warped wall for this season's competitors all while representing the Amazonian Warrior Princess Wonder Woman.

Graff completed the new qualifier course in 4 minutes and 27 seconds, easily bringing her to the next round of competition. Even with the slight slip on the bar, she managed to pull through and finish the course strong.

Graff had some notable support on her historic run, with the famous Kacy Catanzaro cheering her on as well. Catanzaro was the first woman to ever qualify for the American Ninja Warrior finals in 2014.

American Ninja Warrior is on its 8th season, bringing the strongest, and occasionally the most hilarious, of competitors to the different courses as they take on different obstacles. With each competitor's success they get a chance to compete at higher levels with more difficult and challenging tasks. All competitors hope for a chance to make it to the four-stage final course to be crowned the true 'American Ninja Warrior' as well as take home a million dollar grand prize.

This season will also have competitors trying their luck in Atlanta, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City and Philadelphia, before the best of the best make their way to Las Vegas.

Who knows what other historic moments will be seen on this new season? Do you think that Graff has what it takes to make it to Las Vegas? Let us know!

American Ninja Warrior airs on NBC on Wednesday nights at 8/7c.
