Wonder Woman is a warrior princess of the Amazons and one of the most powerful heroines of the DC Multiverse. It is usually the most prominent DC female character. She is the daughter of the Queen Hippolyta. She possesses an arsenal of weapons, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara, which serves as a projectile, and (in older stories) a range of devices based on Amazon technology. She was created as a response to the dominance of male characters in comics, so she is usually represented as an indomitable feminist, conforming the stereotypes of male desires. William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter created Wonder Woman and her first would be in all-Star Comics #8 (1941).
