    Vintage Wonder Woman's The Mask

    I was doing a little research online for a fairly simple custom, golden-age WW villainess The Mask. (I had seen her doppelganger in an early JLA issue.)

    Interesting story but, wow, those early Wonder Woman stories are kinky.

    I know a bit about Marston and am not unaware of his ideas or of some of the comics' imagery, but this surprised me.

    Some of the '40s elements of WW are so whimsical, and some so adult.

    Marston got away with a lot because All-American/DC liked having a man with his pedigree on the payroll. Kind of like the Brad Meltzer of his day.

    My first Wonder Woman comic was a golden age reprint, it had her tied up with a bondage mask put on her face, this was another woman doing this to her. I was very young but i remember it being intriguing to me as a child and not knowing why.

    As an adult, I personally find bondage off-putting but I do wonder how many fetishes were born through the pages of Wonder Woman.

    Oddly enough, George Perez is openly into bondage fetish stuff, but he never really put that into his version of Wonder Woman!

    There is a lot of stuff that just went over our heads back then. Been collecting Archie's for the better part of the last year and there are a whole bunch of innuendo's that go back to when Archie started back in the late 40's. Most of the 60-s through the 80's stuff has a lot of stuff that just went completely over kids heads. Covers and interior art/stories.

    Reading about The Mask, she seems to me a character that could be revived today in an engaging, modern storyline.

    One thing I liked about TV's season one WW, she often battled female foes and had a chance to express Amazonian philosophy.
