For those unfamiliar with the story, this letter was directed to Dr. Marstrom, the psychologist who created Wonder Woman. Dr. Marstrom was a strong believer in female domination and bondage, whose story outlines included intricate directions to the artists as to how WW and the other characters should be chained or bound.

He also lived with his wife, an early feminist attorney and advocate, and a younger woman who wore those WW bracelets.
