Wonder Woman

Since her debut in 1941, Wonder Woman has remained one of the most popular superheroes in comic books. Created by William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman has undergone numerous changes to her powers and her costume, yet has remained a feminist icon. She has been the inspiration for numerous television shows and feature films. Her legacy endures after more than seventy-five years of inspiring readers across the globe. In this last issue of the first series, Wonder Woman defeats Hades, Mars, and the Anti-Monitor and marries long-time love Steve Trevor.
