Wonder Woman’s Creator

File this under “Did you know…?” Wonder Woman is undergoing a revival. I don’t know all that much about the people who have brought us our popular superheroes, but I came across this, and found it interesting…

The elements for discomfort are obvious, the creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston, a psychologist and inventor of the polygraph believed in the educational potential of the comic medium. The ideas he wanted to impart to young impressionable minds however, was far from standard. Marston had an unconventional home life, living in a polygamy/Polyamory relationship with his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and Olive Byrne. Marston intended Wonder Woman to represent the kind of liberate woman, that would guide society in part, by controlling destructive masculine tendency.

Poly people are everywhere. We are your entertainers, your neighbors, your family, your public servants.
