Wonder Woman is a character from DC Comics. She’s a founding member of the Justice League group of superheroes and serves as “Ambassador at Large” of the Amazonian people. Wonder Woman’s first appearance in a comic was in 1941 in All-Star Comics #8. She had her first cover appearance a few months later in Sensation Comics #1. The character was created by an American psychologist and writer named William Moulton Marston who used the pen name Charles Moulton and draw by Harry G. Peter. Marston has said that his wife Elizabeth and his mistress Olive Byrne were his inspiration for Wonder Woman.
The character of Wonder Woman hails from the island of Themyscira. She is officially called Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta. It is, for this reason, she calls herself Diana Prince in the “regular” world. According to her legend, she was sculpted from clay by her mother and brought to life by Aphrodite and given powers from other Greek Gods. Recently, her story was updated to include Zeus as her father and her Greek God aunts as having raised her.
Wonder Woman has a variety of skills, including the ability to hunt and successfully combat her enemies. Included in her collection of weapons are a Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, and a projectile tiara. Originally, her character fought Axis military forces because she was created during World War II. She was also frequently at odds with a variety of comic book supervillains.
A frequent storyline for Wonder Woman involved rescuing herself after she’d been captured and tied up. The goal was to show that women didn’t need men to rescue them and that the “damsel in distress” myth did not apply to Wonder Woman.
In addition to the comic book character, Wonder Woman has been brought to life on TV, cartoons, and movies. For many, actress Lynda Carter was the ultimate Wonder Woman and television studios have found it difficult to find another live-action Wonder Woman that audiences accepted.
Most recently, Gal Gadot has portrayed the character beginning in the DC Extended Universe movies that began with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A live-action film Wonder Woman starring Gadot was released in the summer of 2017, which is one of the main reasons Wonder Woman is currently enjoying widespread popularity.
Give the Gift of a Wonder Woman Watch.
A watch combines function and form, especially when a favorite comic book character is incorporated into the design. Watches have lost some of their necessity as more and more people turn to their phones for the time, but they still make some of the boldest and most stylish accessories available.
