Lynda Carter on her ''Wonder Woman'' legacy -- The actress, who shot to fame as the female superhero, discusses the release of its first season on DVD

It's been three decades since Lynda Carter donned those infamous satin tights and fought for women's rights in ''Wonder Woman'''s Nazi-filled first season. Just don't get her started on that invisible plane.

You didn't love your ride?

Come on, it looked like a big plastic plane with a Greyhound bus seat! DC Comics recently presented me with the ''key'' to the invisible plane.

Who should star in the long-rumored Wonder Woman movie?

I'm pulling for an unknown who approaches the character as a human being. Some actors play superheroes like caricatures. I believed I was Wonder Woman. We love fantasy characters because we believe.

Why do you think Wonder Woman endures?

Her humanity. That's what people identify with. I never played her in a sexy way. If a woman's boyfriend was going, ''Oh my God, Wonder Woman's so -- '' she'd say, ''Shut up. Wonder Woman would punch you in the mouth.''
