Wonder Woman meets the White Magician for the first time in this issue, and yet seemingly meets him for the the first time in Wonder Woman Annual (DC, 1988 series) #3 as well.
According to the text, The White Magician was called "Mr. Magic" in the 1940's, and "The White Sorcerer" in the 1960's; in the 1970's, he belonged to the super group "Echoes of Justice;" he had always been a hero, but acts as a villain here.
