Wonder Woman is 75 this year! Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me, but she was created in 1941 by Dr. William Moulton Marston.
H. G. Peter’s original illustration of Wonder Woman wrote a note to Marston, which said, “I slapped these two out in a hurry. The eagle is tough to handle – when in perspective or in profile, he doesn’t show up clearly – the shoes look like a stenographer’s. I think the idea might be incorporated as a sort of Roman contraption.”
Marston responded: “I think the gal with hand up is very cute. I like her skirt, legs, hair. Bracelets okay + boots. …” and the rest is history.
