If you go back and look at the old issues from the 40’s on into the early fifties, I think alot of the people who view her as a feminist icon would be shocked at the amount of bondage scenes involving Wonder Woman. One of her original weakness’ was that, “by Hera’s law” if she was bound by men she would lose her power. Every issue she was being tied up in some fashion. There are a couple of issues where she is bound with her own lasso by women and she is then is forced to call them “mistress”.

I’ve always thought it was more than a bit ironic that Wonder Woman’s creator, William Moulton Marston, was a major bondage enthusiast, and lived in an open relationship with two women! I wonder if they’ll mention this in the film?
That said, the subject of WW as an early feminist icon seems like a good one for a documentary, but at least from the trailer, this seems to be more of a history of WW as an ICON, rather than a CHARACTER. Never been a big fan of that sort of pop psychology, but if the doc shows up on cable, I’ll probably watch it!

Looks to be more about feminism then superheroines.
