Vegas Valley Comic Book Fest: Wonder Woman in Bondage: Power and the Amazon Superhero (Ben Saunders)

Ever wonder why Wonder Woman spent so much time tied up, and yet her creator, William Moulton Marson created her to be a feminist icon. Join university lecturer Ben Saunders for an entertaining and yet historically accurate exploration of Marson's psychological theories and the subtext behind those early Wonder Woman stories.  In this panel we will discover how Wonder Woman in Bondage and feminist politics were entirely consistent within Marston's own mind, and how his unconventional approach succeeded in showcasing a conventional and positive feminist message.
