American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston (pen name: Charles Moulton) and illustrator Harry G. Peter created Wonder Woman, a superheroine, for DC Comics in 1941. Marston’s inspiration for the character’s appearance is said to have come from his wife Elizabeth and their life partner Olive Byrne.
American comic books produced by DC Comics feature Wonder Woman. The persona is one of the original Justice League members. After making her debut in Sensation Comics #1 in January 1942, the character debuted in All Star Comics #8, which was published on October 21, 1941. Since then, DC Comics has produced the Wonder Woman series virtually nonstop. Her actual title in her native island kingdom of Themyscira is Princess Diana of Themyscira. She occasionally takes on the civilian identity Diana Prince in order to blend in with the society outside of her native country.
