DC Reveals WONDER WOMAN 75th Anniversary Postage Stamps

First seen in October 1941 in a back-up story for All Star Comics #8, meant to test her appeal at a time when female superheroes were rare, Wonder Woman quickly broke out and headlined her own title by the next year. Subsequent generations came to know the star-spangled heroine with metal bracelets on her wrists and a magic lasso by her waist via her hit 1975-79 television series and roles in animated shows and movies, as well as her historic appearance on the cover Ms. Magazine #1 in 1972. This past March, Wonder Woman was seen for the first time in a live action motion picture with her introduction in the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

Cool! Did the US post office do a commemorative set for Captain America's 75th too? You probably posted them already but I forget.

I am not sure. I don't think they have yet because no one wants Nazi postage on a letter to Baba.
