Although Lynda Carter is still highly respected for her work on the series Wonder woman, Gal Gadot is considered by many to be the best portrayal of the famous character. The actress debuted in the role in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – 27%, but it was in Wonder Woman – 92% where fans could better appreciate their work. The heroine still has a long way to go in both film and television and, obviously, in the comics that saw her born. October 21, 2021 marked the 80th anniversary of this icon that has evolved quite a bit over the years.

Wonder woman was created by William Moulton Marston and the artist Harry G. Peter. As told in the movie Professor Marston and Wonder Woman – 86% starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote, Marston was a psychologist and teacher who began to develop the character in an attempt to balance the scales of heroes who were always represented by all powerful men. His wife Elizabeth, and his other wife, Olive Byrne, were very helpful in creating Wonder woman, since at the same time they served as inspiration, they guided Marston through the feminist needs that he should represent.
The character first appeared in All Star Comics # 8, originally published on October 21, 1941. This story shows us the famous first meeting between Diana and Steve Trevor and also serves to explain the origins and traditions of the Amazons. Marston achieved what he set out to do: create a female figure to represent the perfect leader, guided by love and strength. Since then, Wonder woman became a public favorite and her stories have been adapted across all media, from radio to the big screen.
The most famous adaptations have been that of Lynda carter in the series that aired from 1975 to 1979, that of Gal gadot in the new adaptations of DC, and that of the animated series League of Justice which had 2 seasons that for many are still the best the brand has done. DC is aware of its popularity and to celebrate it as it should be decided to create Wonder woman day, where new comics, sportswear, an exhibition dedicated to the character and even a statue in California were announced.
