On the Creator of Wonder Woman: William Moulton Marston

I think I read a wikipedia article awhile back about the true meaning of Wonder Woman, how she stood for feminism and was truly, the first female superhero -- in a genre, that was at the time, dominated by male superheroes.  Shewired.com takes a look at the creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston who wrote under the pen name Charles Moulton.

It has some interesting points, the invention of the first lie detector (in the form of Wonder Woman's golden lasso), how if men possessed her bracelets, she would loose her power and was intended as a warning for women to beware the evils of submitting to men, lest they lose their own powers as well.

Beyond that though, are some interesting bits about Moulton's personal life and how it played a role in the creation of Wonder Woman.
In addition to his belief in the superiority of women, Marston also held non-traditional views on sexuality. He lived together with his wife and mistress in a polyamorous relationship, women whom he credited with greatly influencing the creation of Wonder Woman. He was also a strong believer in the practice of bondage and stated on several occasions that he felt its practice was essential for world peace. He theorized that if unruly people were taught the joy of submission through erotic binding they would surely mend their ways in favor of a life as a willing subordinate.

There's also some very suggestive and colorful allusions from the original comic that Marston incorporated.

It's a very interesting (kinda funny) read and inside look into the character and its creator.
