1980s comics 

The main plot of “Wonder Woman” is set during the Cold War, which was during the 1940s just around between the two World Wars. In the movie, the female superhero is jumping into the 1980s where you’ll see a lot of changes. In fact, the decade itself was a very bright memory for the well-known comics. 

Director Patty Jenkins explains in a Cinema Blend piece, “Why 1984? We wanted to bring Diana into the modern world, but the ’80s is a period that Wonder Woman is quite synonymous with. So it was great to see her there, but most importantly, it’s sort of the height of Western civilization and the success of the world that we all live in in the aftermath of now. So I was curious to collide our Wonder Woman into the height of our current modern belief system, and what kind of villains come out of that, and see what happens. So it all came quite naturally.”

What’s in the 1980s? This decade became what was known as the pop culture era. Prior to the Internet, it was the time of the “greatest movies, TV shows, and toys.” It was the time of the Stars Wars films “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” It was also when the movies “Ghostbusters” was shown. The G.I. Joe toys were released during this time. And in the world of music, you get Madonna, Michael Jackson, and U2. It was the decade of the mixtape and the walkman. For foodies, the cereals were in the spotlight greater than any other decade. 

The 80s decade was the “second golden age” for Wonder Woman, and deserves special feature because of the remarkable events that happened in both the comics and media. Did you know that when DC Comics went into a restructuring of its entire universe in 1985, Wonder Woman got the biggest overhaul? Now, this is an honor. In the works of Greg Potter, Len Wein, and George Perez, Wonder Woman’s identify as a figure inspired by mythology was replaced by her secret identity, Diana Prince, and the iconic invisible plane. There’s also a new love interest in the comics, Steve Trevor. However, this did not completely fade her image as a mythological figure but enthusiasts say it even elevated. 

During the decade, Wonder Woman became the ambassador of her ideals, spreading the principles and the message of what she believed in and fought for. There were new villains like Cheetah, Silver Swan, and Doctor Psycho who reflected events that happened in the 1980s decade. Ever since the 1940s decade, from her introduction, she was a romantic figure to Steve Trevor. The 1980s representation ignited the feminist concepts in “Wonder Woman.” 

The 1980s was the famous streamlining of DC Comics known as “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” It happened between the literature’s Bronze and Modern Ages.

More “Wonder Woman”

“Wonder Woman 1984” villain Lord Maxwell was also the perfect choice because he was introduced to the DC Comics in 1987. He was identified as a powerful and shrewd businessman who was among the key supporters of the Justice League International. Out of his fear of the powers of superheroes, he gained the ability to influence minds and even control the minds of these heroes, to feed on what he thought would manipulate the Justice League, where Wonder Woman is part of. 

Stories reveal the upcoming stand-alone movie has completed filming but has not published several footages yet. But like any DC movie, this is bound to be a successful project with the vintage twist.
