In winter of 1941, Wonder Woman made her very first comic book appearance. This Amazing Amazon came from a mysterious island paradise occupied solely by women warriors. When a stranger named Steve Trevor crash-landed on their island, it was Princess Diana that won the right to return him back to Man's World. Temporarily taking the identity of a military nurse named Diana Prince, the Amazon Princess used this alias as a way of keeping an eye on Steve Trevor. With her incredible abilities and unique weaponry, Diana quickly became known as Wonder Woman and sky-rocketed to stardom as a bonafide superhero.
Here I've illustrated Wonder Woman as she first appeared in 1941. Her original outfit consisted of a red bodice with a gold eagle emblazoned on the chest along with a pair of star-spangled culottes. Contrary to popular belief, Diana did not wear a skirt. They were shorts! Diana completed her Wonder Woman ensemble with a white belt, bullet-deflecting bracelets, a tiara, and a pair of red and white boots.
In her identity as Diana Prince, Wonder Woman appeared as a meek military nurse. She wore an all-white look that consisted of the standard uniform (double-breasted dress with a large collar, nurse's cap and white lace-up shoes). She wore her raven tresses up in a bun and hid her blue eyes behind a pair of round-framed glasses.
