"Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world."
- William Moulton Marston

Wonder Woman first appeared in DC Comics in 1941. She was made of clay by Hippolyta, or alternatively the daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus. Wonder Woman was raised as an Amazon on the distant island of Themyscira and takes on the identity of Diana Prince when far from home.

Wonder Woman was endowed with the best qualities of the mythological gods. She was as "beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Hermes, and stronger than Hercules."

Wonder Woman often rescued herself from danger, defeating the "damsel in distress" archetype common in princess stories. Due to her strength and self-reliance, she became a symbol of the feminist movement - the same movement that had inspired her creation.
