Wonder Woman In Bondage
Wonder Woman In Bondage

AIR DATE: November 1, 2013

The star-spangled Amazon was created in the 40s to fight the Nazis, and if you’ve got something to hide, you don’t want to find yourself wrapped in her Lasso of Truth.

Wonder Woman was at one time at least as popular as Batman and Superman. But unlike those superheroes, she doesn’t currently have a mainstream movie franchise.

Where have you gone, Wonder Woman?

We’ll talk about what she means to comic fans today, and the unconventional theories and lifestyle of her creator, Harvard-educated psychologist William Moulton Marston.



Prof. Ben Saunders, University of Oregon, author of "Do The Gods Wear Capes?: Spirituality, Fantasy, and Superheroes"
