“Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power, Not wanting to be girls, they don’t want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.”
– William Moulton Marston in a 1943 issue of The American Scholar
For some reason, right now, I’d really like to write for Wonder Woman. More than any other super hero character. Who knows where these urges coming from? I wouldn’t even consider myself a “fan” of the Amazonian warrior. I just believe she’d be a fascinating character to explore, and reinvent. Mr. Dan Didio? Are you out there?
