ABOUT THE SERIES

Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, is an agent with American Intelligence.

Okay, she is first and foremost to the general public a costumed superhero who battles evil in every form from domestic violence to would-be world conquerors. While she tends to make her home in the States throughout most of her adventures, she is international in her struggles to help others and work for peace.

There is a wide range of 'iterations' of Wonder Woman over the 80+ years she has let the reading and viewing public follow her exploits and most of those adventures, whether it is on her own or as part of the famous Justice League, have her fighting about a varied a field of adversaries as you can imagine - or the several dozen writers who have been tasked with chronicling her activities. Some of these writers have even indicated that thanks to the existence of multiple universes, what have been put on paper about her accomplishments have in fact been done by different Wonder Women. Those stories from what is called the Golden Age of DC Comics (40s-early 50s) are now often said to have been done by Earth-Two Wonder Woman and those that are in the Silver Age (late 50s-60s and some 70s) are said to be in Earth-One. After that, I kinda got lost.

But for a time a couple of these versions of Wonder Woman have found her actively workind inside the American Intelligence community and it is those couple that we make note of here.

Regardless of iteration/universe, the origin of Wonder Woman and how she came to live and work in the States is, for the most part, the same.

Wonder Woman is said to have "the beauty of Aprodite, the wisdom of Athena, the strength of Hercules and the speed of Mercury". Add to that is the fact that she is said to have been blessed at birth by the gods themselves.

She is Princess Diana of Themyscira, a "unitary sovereign city-state and archipelagic island nation" also referred to on occasion as the Amazon Isles or even more commonly Paradise Island. She is the daughter of the ruler, Queen Hippolyta. [Note here there is a difference in origins where one iteration has her molded in clay and then brought to life while another had her conceived normally by a union of Hippolyta and Zeus and probably more versions that I do not know.] 

Paradise Island is inhabited by only women and has been that way for a very long time so it is quite a notable event when during the early days of the Second World War, an American plane crashes on the island and its lone passenger, Army Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, is pulled from the wreckage. He is nursed back to health by Diana and when it comes time for him to return home to resume the War, Diana is the one who takes him there. It is then that she decides the outside world needs her and dons the costume (wow, do the different universes vary that!) and the moniker of Wonder Woman (actually that is usually credited to a dazed Trevor who mumbles about being saved by a 'wonder woman').

Diana chose to take on a secret identity when not going about in her costumed Wonder Woman persona. She chose the rather appropriate name of Diana Prince with her disguise being a straight-laced, severe-dressed woman with her dark hair in a tight bun and sporting eyeglasses. Since Trevor was not only a pilot but also part of Military Intelligence, she (somehow) made sure she was given the rank of Lieutenant and assigned to work in the same office.

    Obviously for a staple of the comic book superhero world, one that has been around since 1942, the number of adventures about Wonder Woman is way more than I have any ability to track. That is not the purpose of this site nor this entry.

This page is devoted to the version of Wonder Woman presented by Linda Carter during the 70s. For that reason, the only graphic adventure entry is for one that was based on that avatar.

MY COMMENTS

In this entry, I speak only of the Wonder Woman who works in the Intelligence field, not the Wonder Woman who is part of the Justice League and who has been entertaining comicbook readers for eight decades. That hero, as great and historic as she is, presents a challenge far outside my meager ability to encapsulate.

Nope, I stick to one iteration of her, namely the awesomely entertaining Lynda Carter portrayed Diana Prince that I adored.

Now, many of those adventures I missed on their first run because I was stationed overseas where I could not catch any of the broadcasts. Thanks to syndication and reruns, however, I made up for it when I returned to the States. Why was I so determined? Lynda Carter. As the great Stan Lee would put it, 'Nuff said!"
