Wonder Woman: a super heroine in an all-male world
Wonder Woman is a heroine that on par with Superman, Batman and other iconic characters, is part of what could be considered like the “pantheon” of super-heroes. In this imaginary universe, Wonder Woman, under the human name of Diana Prince, is born as a character destined to become a myth in 1941 thanks to the William Moulton Marston’s fantasy. In fact, her debut occurred in the number 8 of the comic books series All Star Comics.
It is interesting to note the fact that the birth of Wonder Woman occurred in a world of all-male superheroes, where actual superheroes would save the world (and helpless ladies too).
The stainless myth of Wonder Woman allows to emphasize how a woman, with her own ideas and strength, would be able to stay on par with many men. The model created by William Moulton Marston, in a way not thought possible, because of the time, soon received an immense sign of approval.
Wonder Woman, but not only
Even if the archetype of the super-heroine is without doubt Wonder Woman, the world of super heroes also has other women as heroines.

Another excellent name in the world of female super heroes is Kitty Pryde, comic book character created by John Byrne e Chris Claremont.
Appeared in the middle of the cold war, Black Widow, from femme fatale becomes protagonist of epic intergalactic adventures. Another female character belonging to the fantastic world of super heroes is She-Hulk, an exceptional all-female representation of strength.
Wasp, as Capitan America, is a true leader, a woman capable of being both dominant and fragile and sweet. Jean Grey, also known as Phoenix, is another female superhero character. She was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee and, by many standards, is almost surely one of the most famous X-Women of all time.
Batgirl, alias Barbara Gordon, also fights organized crime as a superheroine in Gotham City. A fantastic character where more than her athletic strength, it is her tenacity and intelligence that stands out, other than a sensuality all water and soap. Tempesta, alias Ororo Munroe, appeared as a super-heroine of the comics in the May of 1975. Created by Dave Cockrum and Len Wein, she’s a mutant who has control over the elements.
The Sixties is where Invisible Woman, alias Susan Storm, makes her debut. She’s a renown super-heroine who fights against Galactus. She’s a famed comic book character created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. In conclusion, we couldn’t but remember Miss America, alias Madeline Joyce Frank, superheroine and married with Whizzer.
