'Wonder Woman' was based on Greek mythology and had the beauty of Aphrodite, the strength of Hercules, the wisdom of Athena, and the speed of Mercury. After Moulton's death in 1947, Harry G. Peter continued the comic until his death in 1958. It was later continued by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. Peter has also illustrated the 'Man-o-Metal' feature.

A Harry G. Peter panel from 'Wonder Woman' inspired Roy Lichtenstein's 'Reflections: Wonder Woman' (1989).
