Although superhero comics, and superheroes in general, have been targeted towards, and the domain of boys, and men, one major female character has been at the forefront of the comic universe for more than half a century now, and she's still going strong. I'm referring, of course, to Princess Diana of the Amazons, or as she is more commonly known - Wonder Woman! Deftly walking the fine line between sexpot and feminist icon, She is as important an influence on American pop culture as the guy with the big red "S" on his chest. According to Wikipedia:
.
" Wonder Woman is a member of an all-female tribe of Amazons who was created by Dr. William Moulton Marston as a "distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to 'a world torn by the hatred of men.'" Her powers include super strength, super speed, stamina, and flight. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare."

"She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth (which forces those bound by it to tell the truth), a pair of indestructible bracelets, and an invisible plane, which was later replaced with an ability to fly unaided."

.  

"Created during World War II, the character was initially depicted fighting the Axis military forces, as well as an assortment of supervillains and supervillainesses. In later decades, the World War II setting was often maintained, while other writers updated the series to reflect an ongoing "present day." Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in the team books Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League (from 1960). Arguably the most popular and iconic female superhero in comics, Wonder Woman is also considered a feminist icon and is informally grouped with Superman and Batman as one of a "trinity" of DC characters, regarded as especially important. Diana is regarded as extremely physically attractive even by the standards of the superheroine. She was named the twentieth greatest comic book character by Empire magazine."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from one of Wonder Woman's earliest appearances. The model also contains extra pieces to allow building her in her original skirt or the shorts seen in later stories.

This model is also extra special as it marks the first female subject in the GA Superheroes line, and is built on a brand new template. Wonder Woman marks the first of many great female characters to come!

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
