The Old and New Adventures of Wonder Woman
Written by Rebeka Knott
Wonder Woman made the leap from DC Comics to television in 1975, starring Lynda Carter as the Amazon super heroine for three seasons. The first season was set in WWII, the second and third season Wonder Woman was set in the late 1970’s.
When we first meet Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor crashed his airplane on the uncharted island after fighting a Nazi plane. This island just happens to be inhabited by Amazons, lucky guy! Against her mother’s wishes, she leaves the island to help Steve fight the Germans.
Season Three, near the end of its run, Wonder Woman had a serious, emotional story in a two-part episode. Her identity is revealed, as a teenage boy sees Diana transforming into Wonder Woman.
Now a new audience has fallen in love with Wonder Woman, the 2017 film starring Gal Gadot as the iconic character.
