I’m sorry but Wonder Woman was not a role model for young girls and women when first created. I know it’s a taboo thing to say amongst comic-book enthusiasts but she was a really, really bad character and it was painfully obvious that the comic was written by a sexist man (believing himself to be non-sexist apparently) who was into domination. She reinforced stereotypes and was little more than a bondage fetish character. These days she is so much more, but I just want to show a quick comparison of now…
While the modern Wonder Woman will blind herself to defeat an enemy and then continue to fight villains while still blind, Golden Age ‘Wonder’ Woman was held back by her… ‘feminine vanity’. Yup, let that sink in!
Is Wonder Woman a great character? Sure she is, NOW. But to be blunt, that’s NOT thanks to her creator!
