In 1942, an Amazonian princess nursed a downed American pilot, Steve Trevor, back to health. Blessed with great strength and agility, she accompanied him back to the U.S. as Wonder Woman, woman warrior against the forces of war and evil.
In addition to her great strength and speed, Wonder Woman has some awesome accessories: an invisible plane, Feminium bracelets which she uses to deflect bullets and shrapnel, and a magical golden lasso. DC’s earliest major female super-hero reigned for over forty years in this, her first series. Ironically, it took her alter-ego, Diana Prince, almost as long to advance from a low-ranking army nurse to a major.
