From her introduction in 1941, she has been a shining example of feminism and the strength of womankind. But what was her role during the wartime of her creation?
Wonder Woman: The War Years 1941-1945 details how she used her super speed, strength, and Golden Lasso of Truth during World War II to bring peace and justice (and some slightly bizarre bondage and submission themes) to a turbulent world.
