The character Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941), and her first title ran from the summer of 1942 to February 1986. The second title ran from 1987-2006, her third 2006-2010 and her fourth (and latest title) is currently ongoing from 2011 to the present. She has frequently appeared in other titles in DC Comics Universe such as Justice League.

The most successful television version of Wonder Woman is the Wonder Woman (1975–1979) series starring Lynda Carter as the titular character.
There have been many attempts to get an actual live-action film and another live-action series dedicated solely on Wonder Woman; some of those were NBC's WW pilot and CW's Amazon script. Finally, in 2013, Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman for the DCEU. Gadot's Diana appears in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Wonder Woman (2017), and the Justice League film.
