With this issue, Robert Kanigher launched a Silver Age revamping of the book, starting from scratch with a retelling of Wonder Woman’s origin. In this version of events a blonde Queen Hippolyta holds a contest, sponsored by the Goddess Athena, that sends her daughter, Princess Diana to Man’s World. Over the next few issues, Diana assumed a secret identity as a secretary to Colonel Steve Trevor in Military Intelligence. Kanigher also takes the opportunity to revamp many of the original Golden Age villains too.

An Amazon named Orana challenges Diana during the contest and a version of this character would make another appearance several years later, challenging Diana once again for the title of Wonder Woman, in issue 250.

Also of note is the fact that Wonder Woman’s ability to glide on air currents is revealed for the first time in this issue.
