Wonder Woman was portrayed by Lynda Carter in the Wonder Woman TV series that aired from 1975 to 1979.


Princess Diana of Paradise Island was born in 550 BC in Ancient Greece. Her mother The Queen led the Amazons to Paradise Island, an uncharted isle in an area commonly known as the "Bermuda Triangle" in the year 24 BC. There the Amazons remained until the year 1942 when Maj. Steve Trevor, United States Army Air Corps, crash-landed after an air battle with a Nazi fighter plane. He revealed the current state of the world, resulted in the Queen decided to send him back to the outside world with an Amazon to battle alongside the Allies. The Queen forbids Diana from participating in the contest to determine the Amazon who was to go to Man's World, but in disguise, Diana won.

Her mother gave her her costume complete with a sparkling golden tiara, two bracelets made of a strong metal called feminium, a special belt that was her main power source of strength away from the island, and the golden lasso of truth.

As Diana Prince

Promising to make her mother proud, Diana flew to Washington and became Steve's secretary under the alias of Yeoman Diana Prince and helped fight the war against the evil Nazis. During the war, the Nazis invaded Paradise Island in hoping to collect the precious feminium for their own personal gain, but Wonder Woman and the other Amazonians stopped them and erased their memory of ever finding the island.

After the war was over Wonder Woman returned to the Island to resume her royal duties. Thirty-five years later, a plane crashed on the island and Diana was surprised that one of the passengers on board looked like Steve Trevor. After examining his records she found out that he was Steve Trevor Jr named after his late father that Wonder Woman had helped during the Second World War.

Diana donned her suit once again and traveled to Washington again using the alias of Diana Prince, but this time as a government agent for the IADC (The Inter-Agency Defense Command).

After many more adventures, Diana joined another agency in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, CBS ended this series when this plot was in development because there were no new cast members available to support the fourth season.
