SHE may be 54 and the mother of two teenagers, but Lynda Carter doesn't look much different than she did nearly 30 years ago on the TV series "Wonder Woman." She's tall, svelte and curvy and can still probably get into the scanty superhero outfit she wore on the series from 1976 to 1979. Though she was considered a sex symbol at the time, Carter admits, "I never thought of Wonder Woman as a sexual being, but you can ask a lot of 15-year-old boys back then."

November 17, 2008 | Geoff Boucher, Boucher is a Times staff writer.
Stephen J. Cannell groaned when ABC executives first broached the idea of creating a superhero show. "I never got superheroes. I had severe dyslexia as a kid so I didn't really get into reading comics. And then when I became a writer, I didn't like them because they had everything. If the only thing that can get you is a piece of kryptonite, then that's not very interesting to me; I was always more interested in the flaws in character." Finding flaws in tough guys has been a signature for Cannell, who created or co-created "The Rockford Files," "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and "Baretta."
