1950s - Bettie Page
Around the 1950s, comics began to enter the camp era in earnest. Superman was a television staple, and the stories portrayed on the boob tube were fairly light hearted, particularly in later episodes. Whether Wonder Woman was on the big or small screen, the first 1950s beauty that comes to mind to fill out Wonder Woman's boots was the notorious Bettie Page. Page was built like an amazon, and her naughty, good girl shtick would have matched the tone of Wonder Woman's 1950s adventures. The January 1955 Playmate of the Month would have given audiences a stunning Diana that would also be believable while kicking some butt. No man in America would lie if Ms. Page tied him up with her Lasso of Truth. Bettie Page looks like she was forged from the divine inspiration of the gods, and just imagine an island of women that all looked just like her. The Rockwellian purity of the '50s would have been much different with a burlesque age Wonder Woman fighting commies and anti-American thugs. What could be better?
