Indexer Notes

Story title from table of contents.

Wonder Woman's origin from All-Star Comics (DC, 1940 series) #8 is shown with more detail, including the creation of the Amazons from clay by Aphrodite, and Diana's birth on Paradise Island: sculpted from clay by Hippolyte's hand under the direction of Athena, and brought to life by Aphrodite.

Wonder Woman is shown here to receive her magic lasso along with her costume after winning the contest, whereas she originally received her lasso after having lived in man's world for a time, as shown in Sensation Comics (DC, 1942 series) #6.

Indexer Notes

Story title from table of contents.

The image of Wonder Woman riding a horse on the splash page was used for the cover. Mabel is shown reading an issue of Sensation Comics. This story was the basis for an episode of the Wonder Woman TV series, "Wonder Woman Meets Baroness Von Gunther." Paula is shot and killed at story's end, although she's alive in her next appearance, Sensation Comics (DC, 1942 series) #12, because an "electric machine she invented brought her back to life."

Wonder Woman crashes a car into a tree to avoid hitting Etta, seemingly killing the other passengers, noting they were "too lazy to jump in time." Instead of using the magic lasso, Wonder Woman hypnotizes Mint to determine what he revealed to the Mexican spies.
