origin and 1st app. Wonder Woman; one of the scarcest major Golden Age keys!
DC's Big Three were blessed with auspicious beginnings. All Star Comics #8 did for Wonder Woman what Action #1 and Detective #27 did for Superman and Batman. America's Guardian Angel was an instant hit who served as a graphic representation of the women's war effort during WWII, predating Rosie the Riveter by two years. The daughter of Hippolyta rescued fighter pilot Steve Trevor, whose pursuit of a Nazi spy ended with his crash landing on Paradise Island. Men were forbidden on the island, but in divining his past, Hippolyta recognized that he was a hero worthy of sacrifice. The Amazons decided to aid the war effort to defeat the vile Nazis with the lovely Diana ultimately chosen for the assignment. The upside potential of this issue cannot be stressed enough. Wonder Woman's overdue solo film received critical acclamation and birthed a whole new generation of fans and feminists alike, the much anticipated sequel "Wonder Woman 1984" is scheduled for a 2020 release.
