The model of the ‘supernatural in disguise’, which is, as underlined, extremely popular in many fields, is at the centre of the contribution by Andreas Gietzen and Marion Gindhart, who analyse here the fascinating story of Wonder Woman through the decades. The famous US-heroine, who is here presented as an important symbol and even a sort of barometer of the changing position of women in American society, does indeed have very strong ancient roots, and not only in this conception of the supernatural being in disguise, but in her very origin, since she belongs to the ancient mythical race of the Amazons.
