First Appearance Of Wonder Woman

On October 21, 1941, Wonder Woman was introduced in All Star Comics #8.

As the world was at war in the early 1940s, comic books came under fire for promoting violence.  While some called for comics to be banned, one man saw an opportunity to improve comics and empower young girls, with the wise and mighty Wonder Woman.

That man was psychologist William M. Marston.  In response to the outcry, Marston published his own thoughts in an article in Family Circle magazine.  In his article, he said he saw “great educational potential in comics.”  Marston’s article got the attention of comics publisher Max Gaines, who encouraged him to develop a new character.  At his wife’s suggestion, Marston chose to create a female superhero.  However, even though she possessed Superman’s strength, she would resolve her problems with love instead of her fists.

And so, on October 21, 1941, Wonder Woman made her debut in All Star Comics #8.  She then made her first cover appearance a month later on Sensation Comics #1 and received her very own comic later in 1942.  Wonder Woman displayed a more compassionate and less violent side of superheroes and served as a role model for young girls.
