Synopsis

Wonder Woman assists Baroness Paula Von Gunther perform three tasks on behalf of the Goddess Aphrodite. They firstly prevent a Japanese plan to incite war between the sexes in America.

Wonder Woman and Paula next battle Blakfu, king of the Mole Men.

Wonder Woman and Paula finally help reform rubber magnate Ivar Torson and his syndicate, who have been conspiring to conceal their secret rubber extraction solution from the U.S. government despite the fact that it is desperately needed to prosecute the war effort.

Wonder Woman has to then rescue Paula’s daughter, Gerta Von Gunther, from Mavis who is a former slave girl of the Baroness and seeks revenge. The Amazon Princess hands the captured Mavis over to Mala on Transform Island for rehabilitation.
