World of Wonder | Week 25 | All-Star Comics | Sensation Comics | Wonder Woman ('42) | Jan. 15-21

World of Wonder Week 25!

A Series of Firsts :sparkles:

:star::star::star::star::star:

Last week, we read about DC’s first alternate Earth story. I figured we’d continue on that path. As World of Wonder’s first week post Crisis on Infinite Clubs in the first month of the first year of a new decade, we will be reading a series of firsts. All-Star Comics #8 marks the first appearance and original origin of Wonder Woman. The story continues into the first issue of Sensation Comics and the first issue of Wonder Woman (1942-). With Wonder Woman #750 arriving next week, what better time to visit where this icon got her start? Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet makes its first appearance as well!

:star2:DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. How do you like this depiction of Wonder Woman, from how she’s written and drawn?

  2. Do you lean more towards the original clay origin or the current demigod origin?

  3. Can you see from these early Wonder Woman stories, why she became an icon?

  4. What would you say are some defining qualities of Wonder Woman that are evident right from the character’s beginnings?

Looking at your post from the front page on my phone, the images for All-Star, Sensation and WW goes around on a loop. I haven’t seen that before so I thought you might have discovered it.

Ok I’m ready to give my first report on Wonder Woman, so here we go! Wonder Woman theme music playing in the background

  1. There’s always something weird how artist in the 30s and 40s draw, maybe I’m being spoil to the modern looks, I think Wonder Woman was drawn really well, sadly some few other characters were terrible looking. Maybe they didn’t make stick figures back then.
  2. I like the Clay Orgin story better, not to change the subject did you read the 2 part story where she face Clayface? It was really good, where he steal her clay power and Wonder Woman look like Donna Troy!
  3. Yes she was like Superman with American color outfit, her orgin story was so good in fact if you watch the 1975 Wonder Woman pilot it really was based on her first orgin story! I thought it was well done!
  4. Her love for Steve Trever and wanted to help. You have to understand that when Wonder Woman was created, the World was at war, So having woman hero was unheard of, Wonder Woman was the first ever woman super hero, Where boys can like a girl hero and girls can look up to. There’s a movie about how Wonder Woman got started, I haven’t seen it. Did you know the guy who created Wonder Woman also invented a Lie Detector? Maybe Wonder Woman’s lasso is based on that! :grinning:

Movie about Creator of Wonder Woman.

The Marston Family claims this story about the relationship between the two women is false

The two women in the story stayed together after the death of Marston until one died.

Each had two children from him

Also

The above video says Director / Screenwriter did not contact family but showed film to Zack and Debbie Snyder who produced Batman.v Superman and Gloria Steinem who put Wonder Woman on rhe cover of Ms Magazine 1 and forced DC Comics to give Wonder Woman her super powers back. All three liked the film

It is a pretty good movie, for anyone curious, and it’s currently on Hulu.

I haven’t read that story yet. I’ve been interested in getting to that Clayface story. It sounds pretty cool.

I did like the Wonder Woman pilot!

Thanks for sharing your topic TSoS! I just read a bit of it. I’ll have to finish the rest after work, but it does have a lot of interesting information. That’s the one thing the movie Professor Marston and the Wonder Women was missing, talking about the other creator behind Wonder Woman. H.G. Peter’s design for Wonder Woman is a huge reason why she’s lasted so long. It’s easily iconic and identifiable.
