Diana comes face-to-face with…Wonder Woman?!? The two heroes must stop a nefarious Nazi plot! The modern-day Wonder Woman meets her Golden Age counterpart in the sepia-tonied World War II past on Adam Hughes’ irresistibly inviting cover to issue #184 of the second Wonder Woman series. Hughes achieves an old-school look and feel through the use of Harry G. Peter’s classic logo, simulated wear and tear, and of course, the inclusion of the obligatory luger-waving Nazi. Dinosaurs also feature prominently in this time-spanning tale, a nod to the Amazon’s many battles with prehistoric creatures through the years. Comics fans know Hughes as the master of the pin-up, a man whose facility for drawing bodacious ta-tas helped make him one of the most sought-after cover artists in the industry. In 1998 he began a fire-year run doing covers for Wonder Woman, helping to bring some muc-needed sexy back to one of DC’s most beloved female characters. “I think that the women I draw are usually pretty much more than the size of any part of their anatomy, or the amount of what they aren’t wearing, I think most people can see that there’s something going on behind the eyes, and the women are characters, not just ciphers.”-Adam Hughes. “They’ll follow Adam Hughes on covers if it’s a chick book.”-Dave Johnson. Wonder Woman is a superheroine published by the DC Comics created by American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston. She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (cover-dated Jan. 1942). The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986. Her depiction as a heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and sexual equality has also led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon. Wonder Woman is a warrior princess of the Amazons (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and is known in her homeland as Princess Diana of Themyscira. When outside her homeland incognito, she is known as Diana Prince, a secret identity with credentials and identity bought from an Army nurse named Diana White who went to South America and married her fiance. She is gifted with a wide range of superhuman powers and superior combat and battle skills. She also possesses an arsenal of weapons, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and, in some stories, an invisible airplane. Created during World War II, the character was initially depicted fighting the Axis military forces, as well as an assortment of supervillains. Since then, Wonder Woman has gained a formidable cast of enemies bent on eliminating the Amazon, including classic villains such as Cheetah, Ares and Circe and newer ones like Genocide and The Circle, as well as many gods and monsters from Greek mythology. Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in comic books featuring the superhero teams Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League (from 1960). In addition to the comics, the character has appeared in other media; most notably, the 1975–1979 Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter, as well as animated series such as the Super Friends and Justice League. Although a number of attempts have been made to adapt the character to live-action film, none have yet emerged. An animated film was released in 2009, with Keri Russell voicing the title role. Attempts to return Wonder Woman to television have also faced problems, with a failed NBC Wonder Woman pilot in 2011 counting among more recent attempts. A pilot for The CW entitled Amazon was announced as being in development in September 2012, but by mid-2013 development had been paused due to the network’s dissatisfaction with the script. Wonder Woman has also been featured in a variety of toys and merchandise. The Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age portrayals of Wonder Woman showed her using an Invisible plane that could be controlled by mental command via her Tiara. Its appearance has varied over time; originally it had a propeller, while later it was drawn as a jet aircraft resembling a stealth aircraft. Adam Hughes (born 1967) is an American comic book artist and illustrator who has worked for companies such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros.
