Wonder Woman is getting her very own postal stamps. According to the U.S. Postal Service, the Wonder Woman stamps will commemorate the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic female characters in history. This powerful superhero has been a champion of women for 75 years, and what better way to add that a little extra something to those holiday greeting cards than one of the coolest superheroes of all time. The first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony will take place at New York Comic Con on Fri., Oct. 7, 2016. Collectors and superhero fans alike are anxiously waiting to get their hands on these stamps. The Postal Service is issuing four different Forever stamp designs depicting Wonder Woman during her eras of comic book history. These beautiful stamps will represent her Golden Age (1941–55), Silver Age (1956–72), Bronze Age (1973–86) and her Modern Age (1987–present).
According to passionate Wonder Woman fan Nielle McCammon, “there is something to be said for a heroine who inspired many women from birth to middle age. She’s popular to men, I’m assuming because she’s badass and gorgeous. And for women, she is a reminder of empowerment.” After her introduction to the modern films in the recent ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, fans will get to see her in action in the new film due out next May, 2017 starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine.
Lucky fans at San Diego Comic Con were able to be the first to preview the stamp pane in person. In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, the U.S. Postal Service has really struck a chord with superhero fans. Most certainly with the female fans. Most love her portrayal of the superhero by beautiful actress Lynda Carter in the 1975-79 TV series. Originally created back in 1941 in a back-up story for All Star Comics by William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman is still a figure of courage, strength, and beauty. Along with those qualities, she is wise, courageous, and graceful. Her character represents so much of what women aim to be.
