Indexer Notes

Diana notes that, without her magic lasso, she'll need more time to get dressed in the morning.

Diana Prince is offered, and accepts, entry into the astronaut training program at NASA.

The Pre-Crisis Wonder Woman had a strong precept against killing, and yet here, when Orana is gunned down by Warhead, Diana reacts swiftly by throwing a neutron bomb at Warhead's helicopter, killing him and his henchmen.

Returning Orana's body to Paradise Island, Diana once again assumes the role of Wonder Woman.
