As a little girl, I have always wanted to wield the red, white and blue recognizable costume of a famous heroine. I wanted to wear the tiara with silver metal bracelets and run around, playing with a rope that I would call my “lasso of truth” and immediately state that I was invincible.

Wonder Woman is a figure that is considerable recognizable. She was created in 1941 by a psychologist named William Moulton Marston or Charles Moulton as his pen name (who studied the psychological effects of mass media and the developer of the lie-detector test) .
