Indexer Notes

Wonder Woman notes she can't go very far, or very fast, riding wind currents. Diana Prince is under investigation by Farley of UN security, who is shown holding Diana's file, which was stolen by Bushmaster in the previous issue, Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #255. Mike Bailey is revealed as the Ten, the inside man at NASA for the Royal Flush Gang. Diana Prince quits the astronaut program and moves back to New York to resume work at the UN.
