Synopsis

Every member of the JSA miss their regularly scheduled meeting, leaving Wonder Woman with only letters from each member stating that they hate to miss a session, but that they are working on very important cases. So, the Amazon Princess gathers together the girlfriends of the members and has them costume themselves as their boyfriend’s heroic identity, then head out to capture the man behind the crisis.

Brain Wave oversees the inert forms of the JSA members. He thinks back to the time that he learned the ability to materialise people out of thin air. Unfortunately, he was only motivated by money, and that led him to a life of crime. Then he sees Wonder Woman and the girlfriends in their uniforms, and decides to use mental images of their boyfriends against them, and are captured. Brain Wave attempts to gas them all, Wonder Woman breaks her bonds and breaks out of their prison just in time to see the Brain Wave jump to his death from the tower.
