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.
