Indexer Notes

-Aphrodite uses the mists of Nepenthe to remove the memories of Steve Trevor from Diana's mind
-Hippolyte mistakenly notes that Princess Diana renounced her Amazon heritage as a way to deal with Steve Trevor's (first) death; in reality, Diana chose to remain in man's world as an ordinary human when the Amazons left this dimension to renew their magic, in Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #179; consequently, Diana had already renounced her heritage when Steve was gunned down by Dr. Cyber in Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #180
-even though she's the Princess, Diana must participate in the daily chores of the Amazons, such as gathering edible plants from the sea beds surrounding Paradise Island
-although seemingly renouncing her life as Wonder Woman, Princess Diana still carries the magic lasso
