First Story Synopsis

When the heroes of Valhalla refuse to fight, Odin orders his Valkyries to capture Amazons and transform them into Valkyries, surmising they’ll be strong enough to handle the lazy men. When Steve arrives to rescue the prisoners, the distraction allows the Amazon Princess to capture the real Valkyries.

Second Story Synopsis

Wonder Woman and the Holliday Girls travel to Egypt, where Professor Chemico has been enslaved by a resurrected pharaoh bent on destroying the modern world with a deadly gas.

Third Story Synopsis

Queen Hippolyta shows the Holliday Girls a home movie of Princess Diana on her 7th birthday, when she rallies the Amazons against an invasion by the Sky Riders of Nebulosta who are riding Kangas.
