Five Things You Didn’t Know About Wonder Woman

SHARE:

The DCEU marches on with Wonder Woman coming our way this Thursday, the iconic DC Comics heroine getting her first solo movie after making quite the impact in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With a 75 plus year history under her belt, there’s a lot going on with the Mistress of Might you might not be aware of. So, here’s five things you didn’t know about Wonder Woman.


1. Wonder Woman was created in 1941 by psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston as new type of hero who would win the day through love and fists or firepower. The inspiration for the character came form Marston’s wife, Elizabeth, and Olive Byrne, the woman both were in a polyamorous relationship with. Marston also created an early version of the lie detector, which went onto inspire Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth.

2. Wonder Woman’s original origin was that she was sculpted from clay by her mother Hippolyta, and given life and her powers by the Greek goddess Aphrodite. In recent years, with DC Comics undergoing a line wide reboot, her origin was changed to make her the natural born daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, her powers coming from the fact she was a demi-goddess.

3. Wonder Woman’s alter-ego of Diana Prince comes from her meeting an army nurse who was her doppelgänger. The nurse wanted to travel to South America to be with her fiancé, but had no money to do so. Because the two looked alike, Wonder Woman paid her the money in return for using her name as an alias so she could keep tabs on Steve Trevor, her on again/off again love interest.

4. The first attempt to bring Wonder Woman to t.v. happened in 1967. Given the success of the 1966 Batman t.v. show, this version would posses the same campy style and be more of a comedy, casting Diana as a plain young woman who kept her alter-ego secret form her overbearing mother.


5. The 1975 Wonder Woman t.v. show, with Lynda Carter in the lead role, was initially cancelled after it’s first season. Despite it being a success, television network ABC was unhappy with the show’s 1940’s setting. CBS soon picked the series up, changing the time period from the 40’s to the modern day. Carter and Lyle Waggoner were the only actors who returned, with Waggoner playing Steve Trevor in season one, and his own son, Steve Trevor Jr., in season’s two and three.
