Synopsis - First Story
The story opens on Paradise Island, where Wonder Woman is staring in horror through a large telescope. The view she sees is of a gaseous, Red Planet encircling a white star and totally absorbing it. She realises that this cosmic menace will continue on its path until it reaches Earth, when the Red Planet’s gaseous rays will pierce our world’s atmosphere, causing it to disintegrate!
Suddenly, Paula, the chief Amazon Scientist calls Wonder Woman over to the omni-screen, where the image of a stranger is displayed, talking in some unidentified language. Paula asks the Amazon Princess, who is versed in all languages, if she understands the message and she replies that the stranger is Crystallar, King of the White Star. The king is apparently sending out thought waves in the hope that someone will come to the aid of the White Star people, known as the Genii, who are being enslaved by the dreaded Golden Women of the aforementioned Red Planet.
Wonder Woman asks Paula whether there is anyway she can resist the deadly rays of the Red Planet so that she can go to the king’s assistance. Paula sprays her with Hydronitgin, which forms a solid membrane around her body to protect her.
After several other Amazons are sprayed with the substance, they join their Princess on the rescue mission. Now protected by the membrane, they are fired up into space from a space cannon towards the encircled White Star.
As they draw nearer, Wonder Woman surmises that the Red Planet must contain vast amounts of breaking atoms which, when their energy is released, hits the atoms of its target planet, breaking them up. She realises that they must stop it before it turns Earth into an exploding bomb!
Suddenly, the Amazons are sucked into what looks like a giant vacuum cleaner nozzle and plummet down the tube towards the planet’s surface. Eventually, they land inside large, individual test tubes within a dark receptacle, and as the tubes are sealed they find themselves trapped.
As the tubes are then lifted out into a huge dungeon area they are met by the Golden Women, lead by their queen, Supreema. She says that she had issued orders for all Genii to remain on their own planet and that they had disobeyed that order. When Wonder Woman tries to explain that they are, in fact, Amazons from Earth, she is silenced.
Just then a booming voice instructs Queen Supreema and her Golden Women to report to the communications room at once for an important incoming message, which they promptly do. As soon as they have all left the dungeon, Wonder Woman smashes out of her tube and discovers that the atmosphere is much heavier than Earth’s. As she frees the others, she instructs them not to try and walk, but to swim for the window through the air.
Meanwhile, as the Amazons make their break for freedom, Queen Supreema and her Golden Women listen intently to the message being received. It originates from the Planet Pacifico, head of the interplanetary peace organisation, and it is revealed that the Golden Women are actually interstellar police who were tasked with bringing king Crystallar to justice. Apparently, the deadly atom disintegrating rays in fact originate from White Star and not the Red Planet. Queen Supreema is advised that the king had managed to send a message to Earth requesting help, falsely claiming that he was being attacked by the Golden Women. She realises that the women they had captured were not Genii spies after all, but really were from Earth.
Rushing back to the dungeon , they find that the Amazons have already escaped. They realise that the Earthlings are under the misapprehension that the Golden Women are evil when in fact it is king Crystaller who is the villain, and who will use the Amazons to fight against Queen Supreema and her officers. Desperately, they try to use the inhilerator, the same device originally used to capture the Amazons, to retrieve them.
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman and her sisters have almost reached the great barrier between the atmosphere of the Red Planet and that of the White Star. Suddenly, they feel the incredible suction of the inhilerator, but Wonder Woman manages to crush the nozzle allowing her and the other Amazons to make the crossing.
Soon they arrive at the king’s palace and Wonder Woman announces that they have come to assist him and his people to free themselves from the tyrannical Golden Women. She explains that the Amazons had managed to escape the women’s’ evil clutches by destroying the inhilerator. On hearing this, King Crystallar begins to laugh maniacally. Wonder Woman, hearing the evil tone in that laugh, begins to think that perhaps she has made a mistake and that perhaps she is trying to help the wrong people!
Sure enough, the king explains that he has tricked the Amazons and that now the inhilerator has been destroyed, he can make a move on the Golden Women. Before setting off, he throws some atomic crystals at the horrified Amazons, telling them that their own atoms will now explode and as he departs he hears the crystals explode like firecrackers!
Followed by his people, he prepares to storm the castle of the Golden Women. Queen Supreema sees his advance and realises that they are now defenseless against the exploding crystals without the inhilerator!
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman and her sisters, who had been protected by their Hydronitgin membranes, quickly recover and set off after king Crystallar, who they now realise must be stopped before he kills the Golden Women. As the Amazing Amazon confronts the evil king, he throws more crystals at her but she effortlessly deflects them with her bracelets. Then she quickly lassos the king with her magic rope and commands him and his men to surrender.
A thankful Queen Supreema asks Wonder Woman to forgive the Golden Women for capturing them and the Amazon Princess replies that it was all just a misunderstanding. The queen explains that all the planets – except the White Star – had joined an organisation outlawing war and that the Golden Women are the policewomen whose task it is to stop universal invaders. Wonder Woman offers them the formula for Hydronitgin so that they will always be protected from deadly rays. With that, they shake hands and the queen tells her that if the Earth ever needs them, the Golden Women will always be there.
As Wonder Woman and the others return to Earth, the Amazon Princess muses that the Universe would be so much more peaceful if Men stopped using it as an Atomic football!”
