[xyz-ihs snippet="whitetexthalfbannerforcontent"] Wonder Woman first appeared in All-Star Comics #8 (1941), and was created by Dr. William Moulton Marston  (May 9, 1893 – May 2, 1947) who is also known for research which helped lead to the invention of the polygraph machine. The original artist who first depicted Wonder Woman was Harry G. Peter. The idea for Wonder Woman was conceived by Marston and his wife Elizabeth, and at part of the inspiration for the character of Wonder Woman came from both Elizabeth and from Olive Byrne, a woman who lived with the Marsons in an open, polygamous relationship.
