William Moulton Marston, creator of Supernatural power, is an educational advisor to psychologists, feminists and DC. He observed that the DC comics were full of masculine atmosphere, so he put forward the concept of female comic book hero. Inspired by contemporary American feminism, he incorporates the vigorous feminist appeal, such as Amiline (Emmeline Pankhurst) 's feminist politics and the family planning of Mrs. Sanger (Magaret Sanger).

Supernatural woman Superman's image from this will be complex, the label is also double-sided, people are wondering, sexy and supernatural woman Superman, why care for equal pay? She comes from the masculine camp, one side clothing caters to the male gaze, side blows the patriarchal evil realm, who is she on behalf of who to speak for?
The power of the vanished Supernatural woman Superman
Doubts all the way, the supernatural female Superman gradually lost the initial strength, her feminist discourse is not new, and she is still sexy, in the younger generation of children's impression, she is more like a beautiful doll, people can't hear her mouth shout what is.
A book by Jill Lepore in 2014, "The Secret History of Supernatural woman Superman ", said that the image of supernatural woman is complex and double-sided. Creator William's personal preference, repeated the story of the supernatural superwoman, his high love for chains and bundles, revealed.
"So you see, supernatural superwoman is trapped again!" She was chained to a chain, tied, handcuffed, shackled, locked in a cage, bundled into a glass box and thrown into the sea by ropes ...
