This mini-series saw an inter-company tie up between DC Comics and Dynamite Entertainment, the latter whose stable of characters covered a wide range of classic pulp and TV based characters. This included Jaime Sommers, otherwise known as the Bionic Woman, as played by Lindsay Wagner in the 70’s TV series.

Lifelong Wonder Woman fan Andy Mangels had the brain wave to write an adventure, whereby the Bionic Woman teams up with the other famous 70’s TV heroine of the time, the iconic Lynda Carter version of Wonder Woman. Together they would have to face off against a number of their respective foes from the TV shows.

Using actual depictions of some of the characters from both series, the comic was a true love letter to both characters and contained many Easter eggs for fans to enjoy.

Synopsis

Wonder Woman and the Bionic Woman have flown to South America to the site of what they believe is CASTRA’s base. But it is a trap and waiting inside for them are Doctors Cyber, Franklin and Solano as well as toy maker Hoffman.

During the ensuing fight against Fembots, Wonder Woman’s bracelets are removed and she is shot by Doctor Cyber while trying to defend the Bionic Woman. As the Amazon Princess collapses, bleeding from her gunshot wounds they also learn that an army of mercenaries and Fembots are even now invading Paradise Island, led by Captain Radl.
