TALKING WONDER WOMAN WITH JODI PICOULT, 1

NRAMA: What are your thoughts on the
history of the character, her creation, almost as an ideal, and her
creator, William Moulton Marston?
JP: I know a little bit about him. What I find the most intriguing about
Wonder Woman's history is that women have not really written her. I
know that William Marston's wife, Elizabeth "Sadie" Moulton Marston, was
one of the co-creators and there was another woman before me who wrote
her - Mindy Newell, who scripted three issues of the original series and
co-plotted several issues of the George Perez run. But that seems
ridiculous to me! ( laughs). Half a century - and only a handful of
women were involved? Honestly, to me, that's the no-brainer here! I
think that surprised me the most.
