Through critical discourse analysis, feminist ideologies found within Wonder Woman's first comic book appearance are uncovered. This is achieved by following Fairclough's threedimensional model of critical discourse analysis in which the text is socially positioned. The findings suggest that radical feminist ideologies prevail in Wonder Woman's first appearance. Finally, a call for a multi-modal analysis is made as it would better represent the language – text and image – found in comics.
