Synopsis

Wonder Woman pits her wits against Mavis, a former slave of the Baroness Paula von Gunther. After escaping Reform Island, Mavis returns to America where she allies herself with a Nazi spy ring posing as a lumber yard providing logging operations. She manages to capture Wonder Woman but makes the mistake of attempting to weaken her by removing her bracelets. As per Aphrodite’s law, the now uncontrolled Amazon Princess loses herself and goes on a berserker rampage.

She defeats Mavis and smashes the logging camp to pieces. She is finally brought under control by the now reformed Paula who uses Diana’s own magic lasso to capture and subdue her. Once Mavis and her cohorts are safely behind bars Paula welds the Wonder Woman’s bracelets back on tighter than ever using a special “electrical forge”.
