Appearing in "The Secret Origin of Wonder Woman"

Featured Characters:

Supporting Characters:


  • Kung (First appearance)

Other Characters:





  • The origin of Wonder Woman is recapped in this issue.
  • Story continues next issue.
  • Per panel 1 on page 8, the inventor of the Amazon Healing Ray was Princess Diana herself.
  • Per page 16, Diana uses her Magic Lasso to inflict amnesia on Diana Prince, who at that point knows much too much, most of which she was just minutes earlier told, by Diana herself.


  • In this 1970s version of Wonder Woman's WWII adventures, the fake Diana Prince works as a Yeoman, at Army Intelligence. That is, the caption calls her a "Yeoman", which is actually the Navy's title for Diana's job, which in the Army is called "Clerk-Typist." Also this retcon continues the decades-old discrepancy of Miss Prince being both a Clerk (an enlisted billet) and a 2nd Lieutenant (a commissioned officer).
