We know there’s quite a big DC Comics fandom here on Tumblr, so we are hoping you’ll do us a favor and vote for the Smithsonian Libraries’ copy of Wonder Woman #1 as the most iconic image in the Smithsonian! The comic was created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston (who incidentally also helped invent the polygraph) as a way to bolster a more powerful feminine archetype. Not only does our branch, the Dibner Library of History and Technology, hold many Wonder Woman comics, it is also the home to Marston’s papers.
Wonder Woman #1 broke new ground with its hero’s winning combination of strength, smarts, and style. Her backstory has closely followed many of the major shifts in American history, merging fiction, modern technology, and early feminist morality. Today she continues to wield her signature Lasso of Truth, empowering her loyal fans both women and men alike.

Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

It could have been worse; at least they’re not actual high heels. The boobplate and lack of shoulder straps will continue to bug me no end however.

Evolution of Wonder Woman

The height of comic book popularity coincided with World War II, an era that saw the creation of Superman, Captain America, Batman, Green Lantern and the Flash. In a world ravaged by war, these powerful men fought against the forces of evil. Lionizing the battle of good versus evil was not just for kids: Enlisted men requested comic books in great quantities. In fact, one-fourth of all the magazines military men received during the war were comics.

But what these men found in those comics often reflected their violent lives. Harvard psychologist William Moulton Marston, claimed that “comics’ worst offense was their blood-curdling masculinity.”

That’s when he struck upon the idea of creating a female superhero who used love as well as strength to conquer evil: Wonder Woman. She made her first appearance in 1941 in All Star Comics #8. Soon after, Wonder Woman won a fan poll as the best new comic book character. This popularity led to her own comic series.
