Story title from table of contents.

Only the souls of the dead, shackled as prisoners, may enter Mars' domain. Aphrodite gives Wonder Woman an elixir of living death so her astral form may be captured by Mars' slave collectors. Wonder Woman gives her name as Etta Candy, and is unrecognized by Mars and his aides, suggesting this is the first time he's ever seen her. Wonder Woman fights a Saturnian slave in the arena; she later meets the Saturnians in Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #10. Wonder Woman's healing purple ray can be taken in tablet form.

The Earl of Greed is imprisoned on Mars, and suddenly, Adolf Hitler is acting less greedy on Earth. Wonder Woman gives Etta the elixir of living death so her astral spirit can animate one of Deception's phantasms. Shackled, and with her eyes sealed with tape, Wonder Woman is too vain to tear off the tape and lose her eyelashes, so she escapes blindfolded.

Indexer Notes

Story title from table of contents.

The Amazons speak English when Etta Candy visits, an indication they speak another language. Diana's Day is the Amazon Christmas, which occurs on the Winter Solstice (dated here on December 25th, instead of the 21st). An Amazon is chosen to wear the mask of the goddess, filling arrow quivers with gifts; any Amazon girl can attempt to remove the goddess' mask to take her place, but should she fail, she must dress as a woodland creature and be prey in the next day's hunt. Steve receives a mental radio from Wonder Woman as a Diana's Day present.

Indexer Notes

Story title from table of contents.

Wonder Woman uses a "brain wave detector" on Paula's slave girls, a machine that prints a read-out of a person's thoughts. It is noted that the Paradise Island piers are electrically wired to detect approaching vessels. It is suggested that the power of the lasso comes from Aphrodite. Paula demonstrates her hypnotizing technique, to which even Wonder Woman is susceptible. Paula has created a wearable version of the invisibility machine she used in Sensation Comics (DC, 1942 series) #6.

Indexer Notes

The date of Paula's trial is given as December 10th 1942; Wonder Woman serves as Paula's lawyer in the courtroom. Wonder Woman makes an Amazon "anti-oxygenation" ointment that saves Paula's life; Diana Prince returns to nursing to attend to Paula in her convalescence. Hippolyte uses clay to sculpt new features for Paula's burned face, which is brought to life by Aphrodite. Wonder Woman uses the magic lasso on herself, compelling herself to treat Paula well.
