10 things you never knew about your favorite Superheroes
2: Wonder Woman was created by the same man who invented the polygraph.
Well the Lasso of Truth makes sense now! The man credited with creating the character was a doctor by the name of William Moulton Marston. Comics aren’t the only thing Dr. Marston has dabbled in. He also served with the army’s psychological division during World War I, wrote a historical novel about Julius Caesar and created the polygraph, or, as it is more colloquially known, the lie detector test. A lot to be proud of for certain, however William Moulton Marston used a pseudonym for his work on the comic. Whilst penning Wonder Women, he went by the name Charles Moulton. When asked why, he said it was to preserve his reputation as a psychologist.
