I think you're making that up ;)

However, even if you're not...It's not 1942!

Most women secretly just want to be rescued by men. But that's a secret.

Even Wonder Woman. She didn't need to be rescued, but she wanted it ;)

Yeah, but Steve Trevor was too much of a whimp!

I think Steve Trevor suffered the same fate as Lois Lane. Both end up conflicted over a relationship with (unknown to them) the same person.

I heard the issue was Steve liked to be tied up more than Wonder Woman did. ;)

I was talking to Frogdiva about Wonder Woman and this came up. I'm not really sure she entirely believed me but its one of the things from Golden Age Wonder Woman that always kind of fascinated me. I don't think anyone could get away now with a character or characters having such a weakness.
