Indexer Notes

It is noted that a candidate for astronaut needs to have clocked over 1000 hours flight time, and have a BA in Engineering, Physical Science or Mathematics, suggesting Diana Prince may have stretched the truth on her application. Conrad Starfield's hair starts out brown, and becomes black later in the issue. Wonder Woman notes that her robot plane is of "a magical nature." Stacy Macklin later becomes Lady Lunar in World's Finest Comics (DC, 1941 series) #266.
