History: Diana Prince was an Amazon warrior from the hidden island of Themyscira, where she was raised by her mother, Queen Hippolyta. When American pilot Steve Trevor crash-landed on the island, Diana was chosen to accompany him back to the United States as an ambassador for the Amazons.

Once in America, Diana became a government agent working undercover as a civilian, using the identity of Diana Prince. Using her superhuman abilities and divine weaponry, she fought against various threats to national security, including criminals, super villains, and even extraterrestrial invaders.

In her civilian identity, Diana worked at the War Department as an assistant to Steve Trevor, who had become her friend and ally.

Comments: This version of Wonder Woman, played by actress Ellie Wood Walker, was featured in a TV pilot produced by Warner Bros. in 1967. While it was not picked up for a full series, it established the basic elements of the character's backstory and introduced her iconic costume and weaponry. Despite its limited impact, the pilot paved the way for future adaptations of Wonder Woman and helped to establish her as a feminist icon.

Re: Wonder Woman (1967 Pilot)

Mostly inaccurate. In the brief pilot she never fought any villains and the story was more about her not having the build she perceived herself as having. William Moulton Marston would have almost for sure have hated this version.
