Women in Comics: The Platinum & Golden Ages

Part 1: The Phantom Menace

"Just proves that though you're a fierce fighter and have the courage of ten men, you're still a woman." Thanks Bob, we might have forgotten.

Wonder Woman is often thought of as the first woman superhero, the first female to carry her own title in comics, and all in all, the first lady of sequential art. I wouldn't dare argue with the latter, but she was neither the first female hero or title bearer: a number of important woman preceded her to set the stage for the mighty Amazon.
