The Origin of Wonder Woman

Synopsis

Upon her arrival in man's world, Wonder Woman drops an Amazon scroll that details the origin and early days of the Amazons, while later sources outline her birth, her youth, and her battle in the arena for the right to be Wonder Woman.

Notes

This may not be the correct story as the original is listed as 13 pages. Story title from reprints.

Wonder Woman's origin from All-Star Comics (DC, 1940 series) #8 is shown with more detail, including the creation of the Amazons from clay by Aphrodite, and Diana's birth on Paradise Island: sculpted from clay by Hippolyte's hand under the direction of Athena, and brought to life by Aphrodite.

Wonder Woman is shown here to receive her magic lasso along with her costume after winning the contest, whereas she originally received her lasso after having lived in man's world for a time, as shown in Sensation Comics (DC, 1942 series) #6.

Captain Trevor is promoted to Major.
