You may think you know Wonder Woman pretty well, especially with all the much-deserved hullabaloo over this weekend's big movie release. But until you've made her your professional muse, you've probably still got a ways to go. That's why our video below is so illuminating, because we speak to the creators who know her best, the DC writers and artists who have spent countless hours contemplating Princess Diana of Themyscira's many wondrous ways.

So if you really want to get an idea of just how powerful a character we're dealing with here, not just physically, but culturally, then spend a little time below with current Wonder Woman comics writer Shea Fontana, former artists and writers Phil Jimenez and George Perez, and DC publisher Dan Didio. And for an added treat, we even caught up with Christie Marston, the granddaughter of Wonder Woman's creator, William Moulton Marston. Together, they tell the story of Wonder Woman's amazing cultural history, as seen through the eyes of the people who helped create it.
