Comic books have been a staple of American popular culture since the 1920s, but their popularity soared when the adventures of superheroes began filling their pages in the late 1930s. For a population coming out of the Great Depression, comic book superheroes provided a much-needed boost to the spirits. Overwhelmingly, these action heroes were men — until 1941,when a female superhero arrived on the scene and captured the imagination like no others before her. She was Wonder Woman, and Wonder Women! tells the story of her creation and her enduring popularity as a role model and feminist icon. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston, a Harvard-educated lawyer and psychologist.
