Perhaps in reaction to the polarised views of the New 52 version of Wonder Woman amongst fans, DC Comics decided to publish a series of specials depicting the adventures of the 1970’s  TV version of Wonder Woman, as played by the iconic Lynda Carter. DC even obtained the permission of both Carter and Lyle Wagner for their likenesses to be portrayed in the comic. The idea behind the specials was to achieve a blend of the nostalgia element, together with the novelty of featuring some of Wonder Woman’s comic book villains as they may have been depicted in the TV show.

While much loved by millions of fans, one frustration with the TV show was always how the rogues gallery Diana faced each week was neither comic book based, nor particularly threatening – ranging from car thieves to petty thugs.
