"Wonder Woman became a hero for girls, largely because she was the only real female superhero for decades, but that wasn’t her creator’s original intent. William Moulton Marston was a unique feminist who thought that women were superior to men. Men were aggressive and cruel, while women were peaceful and kind, and so he thought that women should be in charge. In fact, he thought that women WOULD be in charge. To Marston, female rule was inevitable. Girls didn’t need a hero, because they were well on their way to becoming heroes themselves. Boys needed a female hero to prepare them for the coming rise of women."
