Although there never was a Silver Age 80 Page Giant released for Wonder Woman, this was a faithful modern day recreation of what it might have been like. The issue featured reprints from the following issues:

 

Synopsis for "Part One - Villainy, Incorporated!"

As Wonder Woman brings Saturian women to Transformation Island, one of them, Eviless, escapes and gets control of Wonder Woman’s magic lasso. The villain sets the other prisoners loose and uses Venus girdles on the Amazons to force them into submission.

Synopsis for "Part Two - Trap Of Crimson Flame"

Villainy, Inc. succeeds in capturing Queen Hippolyta and the rest of the Amazons, then summon Wonder Woman, planning to kill her and Queen Hippolyta. But a riot by transformed prisoners releases Wonder Woman and allows the capture of many members of Villainy. Inc..

Synopsis for "Part Three - In The Hands of the Merciless"

The four remaining members of Villainy, Inc. have fled to the man’s world with Hippolyta’s jewels. These remain hidden until a tip from a shopkeeper leads the Amazon Princess to the criminal’s lair where she is captured, but later freed by Steve, Etta and the Hollidays Girls. The four villains are then taken to Transformation Island.

Synopsis for "Eagle Of Space!"

Wonder Woman battles dinosaurs in space.

Synopsis for "Wanted - Wonder Woman"

Space invaders try to hypnotise Wonder Woman into marrying Steve Trevor.

Synopsis for "Revolt Of Wonder Woman!"

Wonder Woman, exhausted by the many demands upon her and disheartened by people’s perception of her as a “fighting machine”, succumbs to despair, wishing she could find someone who appreciates her for herself.
