Wonder Woman plays a secretarial role only.

Synopsis

Adolf Hitler demands that something be done about the Justice Society and a Nazi engineer says he can rocket the members into space and to other planets in the solar system in special rocket ships he has designed for interplanetary travel. Meanwhile the JSA is meeting in their HQ when they are suddenly overcome by gas pumped into the room by Nazi agents, placed into the rockets and shot into space.

The goddess Aphrodite directs the rocket bearing the unconscious Wonder Woman to the planet Venus, and the Amazon is brought before Queen Desira, who immediately recognises her as the Oracle of Aphrodite. Wonder Woman is asked to help battle giant men-warriors, who are killing and capturing the men of the planet. In a series of desperate adventures, Wonder Woman defeats the warriors and is given the gift of magnetic hearing by the Queen.

After returning from their respective galactic adventures, the Justice Society members are informed as to the whereabouts of the German spies who were responsible for rocketing them into space, and they make short work of them. Wonder Woman, now an Honorary Member of the JSA, is assigned permanent duties as Secretary for the group.
