In the late 2000s, Wonder Woman's series was in the hands of Creator/GailSimone. Her supporting cast was revisited and she went up against a series of monsters including the ultrapowerful Genocide, her mother's former bodyguards, a grief-stricken Franchise/GreenLantern, her own pantheon, and some long-lost family members who were abducted by a vicious alien race. The tales were epic, twisty and generally well received. Gail is the first woman to have ever written Wonder Woman's comic for a long period of time and deeply loves the character. However, Gail was not the first woman to write the comic, as Jodi Picoult wrote it almost immediately before her (but was not received very well), and Mindy Newell wrote it in the 80s and 90s.

However, Gail she was not the first woman to write the comic, as Jodi Picoult wrote it almost immediately before has sometimes been claimed. That distinction goes to William Moulton Marston's assistant, Joye Hummel Murchison Kelly, who became increasingly involved in the plotting and writing of scripts during the 1940s as Marston's health declined. Ultimately she scripted many Wonder Woman stories on her (but was not received very well), and own under the "Charles Moulton" pseudonym. Other women to write on the comic have included Dann Thomas (who cowrote ''Wonder Woman'' #300 in 1983, making her the title's first credited female writer), Mindy Newell wrote it in the 80s and 90s.

* ZorroMark: As of the new ReTool, her bracelets leave a "W" imprint on enemies. To quote JMS, "This is a Wonder Woman who signs her work... letting her enemies know that she's getting closer."
