Wonder Woman - First Appearance by Femmes-Fatales Wonder Woman - First Appearance by Femmes-Fatales
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.

It's not a skirt. They're culottes. William Moulton Marston's wife famously told him that no self-respecting super heroine would wear a skirt, so he changed the design so she'd first appear in culottes. The more you know! ;)

I'm surprised so few people actually know she was a nurse at first. It's especially surprising since there was a return to this occupation for her during the Silver Age when they began re-telling stories from a Golden Age perspective. Of course, Di has had MANY jobs over the years in various continuities. She's been a nurse, an astronaut, a UN worker, a boutique owner, a fast food worker, an author, and even a spy.

Any particular reason why you prefer the Golden Age Wonder Woman to all other eras? I personally find those stories too heavily coded in racism (Egg Fu anyone?).
