It shouldn’t have taken this long. Wonder Woman, the first full-fledged female superhero, created in 1942 by Charles Moulton Marston (also the creator of the polygraph test, in case you didn’t know) and H.G. Peter and maybe one of the most recognized comic book icons in history should have gotten a live action, full-length, wide released film adaptation DECADES ago. But perhaps the world was not ready. Perhaps female-led superhero movie flops like Catwoman and Elektra held things back. But let’s be honest here. The fact that Barb Wire got a movie before Wonder Woman is just too embarrassing.

Great Hera! It is Wonder Woman's 75th Anniversary! The Amazing Amazon first appeared in All-Star Comics #8, the December 1941 issue. The character was created by William Moulton Marston, as well as both Marston's wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and artist H.G. Peter. Both of the latter were not credited. The Marstons co-inhabitant Olive Byrne is credited as being the pattern for Wonder Woman's physical appearance. Marston patterned the character after the feminists of the day. One such example is that of Feminist Margaret Sanger. With the exception of a brief time in 1986, Wonder Woman's adventures have been continuing unabated for the entirety of the past 75 years!

It has been a glorious start to the second season of Supergirl. With the big bang two-part premiere over and Superman back to Metropolis, it is time to lay the flesh on the skeleton created the previous two weeks. While episode 3 is still clearly setting up the new season it is here, more than the premiere the real seeds for what is to come are sown. Last week, we established the overall theme of this season to be change and the consequences of gaining your own voice and we said goodbye to Cat Grant. This week we delve into a plethora of Easter Eggs, new characters - beloved and well-known - as well as explore the themes and content of Welcome To Earth. Read more...

Quick! Name a female super hero! Who was the first character who came to mind? Hawkgirl? The Black Canary? Supergirl?? Well, maybe...or was the first thought that you came up with the Amazon Princess herself -- Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman celebrates a big anniversary this month! November 7th, 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the first airing of the Wonder Woman TV Series starring Lynda Carter! Wonder Woman had been seen on the small screen before, of course. There was an effort while the Batman TV show was running for a Wonder Woman TV series. A four and a half minute screen test, "Wonder Woman: Who's Afraid Of Diana Prince?" starring Ellie Wood Walker as Diana Prince, with Maude Prickett as her mother, and Linda Harrison (who portrayed "Nova" alongside Charlton Heston in "The Planet Of The Apes") as Wonder Woman!

For many super hero fans, Lynda Carter is not just the first Wonder Woman. She is the BEST! She is considered the definitive portrayer of the character. And, the actress celebrated her 64th birthday on July 24th, 2015! Lynda Carter, born Linda Jean Cordova Carter, was born July 24th, in 1951 in Phoenix Arizona. She is the daughter of Juanita Cordova Carter and Colby Carter. Her father is of English and Scotts/ Irish descent, while her mother is Mexican, Spanish, and French descent.

"Holy birthday party, Batman!" O.K., so it is more than a little corny!! But, it also fits perfectly! For July 6th,1945 was/is the 70th birthday of one Bert John Gervis Jr. (AKA Burt Ward, AKA ROBIN, the Boy Wonder)!   Ward was born in Los Angeles California. Ward's father, Bert Gervis Sr., owned travelling ice show called: "Rhapsody On Ice." This is why, when he was a mere two years old, Ward was listed in the magazine "Strange As It Seems" as the youngest professional ice skater in the world. Another feature that would serve him well in the future -- he was an avid reader of comic books (mainly Superman and Superboy. He was also a big fan of the Adventures Of Superman TV series starring George Reeves). Read more...

wonder_woman_by_alex_rossA few months back when Ben Affleck was announced as the next live-action Batman in the sequel to Man of Steel, the internet well...exploded in a blind panic. But before that news I did a “Battle for the Cowl” column looking at all of the rumored actors Hollywood was supposedly looking at and rated their abilities to play The Caped Crusader...or their “Battitude”, as I called it. Turns out none of those shmucks got the part and well...enter Affleck. Nobody saw it coming and it was one of the most confusing superhero casting choices since well...Michael “Beetlejuice” Keaton as Batman. That turned out okay, thankfully. Nonetheless, the rumor mill has begun once more and what do ya know!  It's for the same movie! Apparently there was a casting call for “Superman vs. Batman” (that name still irks me...it’s getting the quotes until I see that name in a trailer) for a “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic”, with many sources believing that this will be Bruce Wayne’s love interest...and even more jumping to the conclusion that the character could be Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana Prince.

Marvel-vs-dc-girlsFor the few years there has been speculation on who would play what hero on the big screen when the movie gets made. When Iron Man was announced there was a fever pitch played out in detail on the web by us geeks. The same thing occurred with the Bat films, Man of Steel caused an internet riot and Superman/ Batman has folks writing the President of the United States to get him to weigh in on their side. I think it is all good fun and have been known to pass on the funnier things I see to my compadres here at ENR. Read more...
