Wonder Woman is comic book superhero from DC Comics. She has had many origins but most involve her being an amazon of Themyscira, who travels the rest of the world as a superhero that fights for justice. Wonder Woman is also seen as a feminist icon for a multitude of reasons, and the creator himself was a feminist.



Wonder Woman first appeared in "All Star Comics no 8" in 1941 as a JSA member who's role was being a secretary. Her original origin was that when an American WWII fighter pilot called Steve Trevor crashed in Paradise Island (later called Themyscira), Wonder Woman was allowed to take him back and see the world beyond the undiscovered island she lived on. She often fought the Nazis and other villains. Soon after her first appearance she became the lead in "Sensation Comics" and shortly after that she got her own title simply called Wonder Woman. She also got her alias, Diana Prince, from an army nurse.

In the Silver Age, Wonder Woman's origin slightly changed, giving her more ties to Ancient Greek mythology. Additionally the idea of Wonder Girl was added to the Wonder Woman/DC mythos. Later on in the Post-Crisis on Infinite Earths DC Universe, her origin changed and she was instead an amazon made from clay because her mother Hippolyta wished to have a daughter.

In the New 52 continuity, Wonder Woman is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, but was told that she was made of clay to protect her from the angry wife of Zeus, Hera. Wonder Woman is currently the God of War after killing her half brother and mentor, Ares. In the New 52 continuity, Diana kisses Superman and gets in a romantic relationship with him (spawning the series "Superman/Wonder Woman")
