Synopsis for "The Biology Bomb"
Returning, in her Invisible Plane, to Washington from her battle aboard the U-boat, Wonder Woman spots a sabotage attempt taking place on the roof of a boxcar in a freight train, speeding toward Washington. She leaps out of her plane and pounces on the masked saboteurs; she quickly subdues them. Diana has brought with her two orphans from overseas, and near Washington she encounters difficulty in placing them in an orphanage, but eventually they are taken in at the Jerusalem Home.
Wonder Woman changes into Yeoman Prince and visits Major Trevor at Walter Reed Army Hospital. Consulting physician Charles McNider has found an inflamed area, slightly abraded and possibly infected, on Steve's arm, but his concern is haughtily brushed off by a senior surgeon. McNider is later proven right: Steve Trevor is mutated into a 6000-pound raging monster with a stolen formula of unknown origin. In a titanic battle at the Washington Monument, Wonder Woman recognizes Steve, but before she can smooth over the conflict, a tank shoots Steve with its cannon, from close range, and he falls down. Doctor McNider checks him out and declares him dead.
- The freight train saboteurs wear purple skin-tight costumes with head masks and Nazi insignia. They drop out of the story halfway thru page 3, but presumably are jailed in the DC area.
- Armageddon is famous enough, in 1942, to have a code name and be mentioned in the newsreels, but his identity and whereabouts are never learned.
- Armageddon's name for the type of "artificial mutant" into which Major Trevor was transformed was "Muutorr".
