Hollywood actresses start losing the pigment of their face and hair, which is blamed on cosmetics by Kosmet who has come up with an prohibitively expensive cure. The Attorney General thinks Kosmet is running a scam and Wonder Woman and the Holliday Girls uncover evidence that not only is Kosmet behind the "cosmetics disease" with items he's selling and providing, he also plans to kill his victims once they stop being willing to pay his fines as he despises successful women for wearing "false faces".

Synopsis for "The Island of Evil"

A radio host known for political commentary starts making speeches deriding the United Nations and claiming that America's allies are traitors who must be attacked swiftly. The government can tell he's trying to start a war, but can't figure out what country is behind him. As the Army Intelligence office tries to figure out who is backing him Diana comes across the man himself blatantly riffling through her desk and unapologetically reading classified documents. Diana knocks him for a loop and Steve restrains him, and the espionage agent proudly accepts taking a lie detector test to prove he's not working for any country, on earth. Continued observation reveals an entire spy network, and Darnell orders an amphibious plane carrying a group of them infiltrated. Steve is quickly discovered and captured however, when the mysterious war seekers all turn invisible.

Diana has the Holliday Girls go to observe the anti-allies spies while pretending to be vacationers at play at the beach the amphibious plane is meant to land at. They too are discovered and captured by invisible foes as a scout spots Wonder Woman leading them to the beach before she parts ways with them. Wonder Woman ends up captured as well as she works to free her friends, but unlike the others her mental training allows her to focus on the minds of the invisible foes seeing them and overhearing their mental conversations. They are agents from Saturn, and despite Mephisto Saturno having been sentenced to a life of imprisonment last she'd seen of him he's free and once again on earth, this time leading a group seeking violent revenge against the planet and Wonder Woman specifically. Still thinking that Wonder Woman cannot see them Duke Saturno orders her friends executed in front of her, prior to carrying out his plan of enslaving her while he destroys the earth. As he counts down to the execution Wonder Woman yanks free of the pillar she's tied to, knocking Saturno and the executioners to the ground, and leaps to free her friends. The Saturnians are captured and sent back to their home empire for sentencing.
