Synopsis

Diana Prince has a strange feeling about Etta’s friend Nifty, and it’s not just that she’s secretly an air-pirate, intent on stealing Professor Chemico’s formula for harnessing nuclear power. When Nifty summons up an ogre-type monster and captures Wonder Woman, he transports her and the pirates back in time.

Next, while the Karma Monster brings the Air Pirates to Charleston Harbor, circa 1750, where they battle Wonder Woman in an earlier incarnation as sea pirates, Paula transports Steve, Etta and the Holliday Girls back in time to aid the Amazon Princess. However, the monster then transports Wonder Woman and the rest to ancient Rome.

Finally, Wonder Woman and friends are reincarnated in Ancient Rome, where they fight for their lives in the arena and on the open seas. But when all foes are defeated, and Nifty surrenders, Wonder Woman promises to take her to Reform Island.
