Okay, so Christie Marston isn't really Wonder Woman's granddaughter, but she is the granddaughter of Wonder Woman's father, or creator rather, William Moulton Marston. Wonder Woman hit the scene in 1941 as a result of Marston wanting to create a positive role model for everyone - boys, girls, men, and women - thus, Wonder Woman was born. Marston was also the creator of the first lie detector test.

It is no secret that I am a huge Wonder Woman fan. Ironically, my last name has no connection to Wonder Woman's wayward sister, Donna Troy. Christie was kind enough to answer a few of my questions regarding my lifelong idol.
