In an October 25, 1940, interview with the Family Circle magazine, William Moulton Marston discussed the unfulfilled potential of the comic book medium. [19] This article caught the attention of comics publisher Max Gaines , who hired Marston as an educational consultant for National Periodicals and All-American Publications , two of the companies that would merge to form DC Comics . [20] At that time, Marston wanted to create his own new superhero; Marston's wife Elizabeth suggested to him that it should be a woman: [21]

William Moulton Marston, a psychologist already famous for inventing the polygraph , struck upon an idea for a new kind of superhero, one who would triumph not with fists or firepower, but with love. "Fine," said Elizabeth. "But make her a woman."

Marston introduced the idea to Gaines. Given the go-ahead, Marston developed Wonder Woman , whom he believed to be a model of that era's unconventional, liberated woman. Marston also drew inspiration from the bracelets worn by Olive Byrne , who lived with the couple in a polyamorous relationship. [22] Wonder Woman debuted in All Star Comics #8 ( cover date Dec/Jan 1941/1942, released in October 1941), [23] scripted by Marston.
