Indexer Notes

This story parallels Angle Man's last appearance in Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #254, when he also attempted to steal a space shuttle. That story also opened with Wonder Woman saving colleagues from a car crash in a river. Diana Prince becomes a Captain in the Air Force and it is noted she is a top pilot. Although Diana had problems in the recent past from falsifying her identity, she does it again here, wiping out all her old records and replacing them with new records in the Air Force computers. It is noted she is a transfer from Hawaii. Etta Candy makes her first Earth-One appearance in many years, although she doesn't seem to be the same Holliday College girl who started appearing back in Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #117. Although Steve came from a parallel Earth, Aphrodite's spell has created a whole history establishing him on Earth-One.
