Moulton "Pete" Marston Merges With The Infinite
You likely haven't heard of Pete Marston. He was the son of William Moulton Marston - aka: Charles Moulton - aka: the creator of Wonder Woman. Pete passed away today at the age of 87. He didn't have any professional association with DC Comics or Wonder Woman, but he did have a strong affection for the Amazing Amazon.
I am mostly aware of Mr. Marston through the website The Wonder Woman Network, which featured an extensive photogallery of Pete's private museum and a lot of pictures of visitors from all over, including Ms. Lynda Carter.
If I ever wanted to feel like my Wonder Woman collection was a reasonable size, I could always visit The Wonder Woman Network page. Also, Mr. Marston looked so cheery in his picture with Ms. Carter.
While I am very sorry to hear Mr. Marston has passed, I salute him for (a) having an astoundingly great WW collection, and (b) carrying the torch for his parents' legacy, as both are known to have contributed to the character and her mythos. I'm glad he knew Wonder Woman was still beloved as much (or more) in 2017 as any other time.
I just wish he'd been able to see the Wonder Woman movie coming soon.
