Indexer Notes

Joye Murchison verified to Jerry Bails. According to Hippolyte, the River Styx is actually the stream of interplanetary ether between Earth and Pluto. This story was written when Pluto was still considered a planet, not a dwarf planet. Wonder Woman travels through space dragged behind a rocket ship, holding her breath; luckily, there's oxygen on Pluto.
