Indexer Notes

Writer credit from "The Secret History of Wonder Woman" (Jill Lapore, 2014), also confirmed to Jerry Bails.

Joye Hummel is the maiden name for the scripter (before 1947), then she married David Murchison. When he passed away, Joye married Jack Kelly. So her name, all combined, reads Joye Hummel Murchison Kelly, the way Jill Lapore refers to her in her book above.

The Space/Time Transformer is referred to as the Space Transformation Machine. When Wonder Woman arrives in the past, Etta, as a Vestal Virgin, believes her to be the goddess Vesta, Steve is thought to be a barbarian, but when he shoots his gun, he's thought to be Jupiter.
