Indexer Notes

Gerry Conway receives special thanks as "technical advisor." Wonder Woman wears the new emblem she adopted in DC Comics Presents (DC, 1978 series) #41. Splash page is an homage to the splash page of TALES OF SUSPENSE (Marvel, 1959 series) #73, a Roy Thomas scripted story that marked Gene Colan's debut on the Iron Man feature. First appearance and origin of the Silver Swan [Helen Alexandros]. Helen is a descendant of both Mars, God of War, and Helen of Troy.
