Notes

  • At the time of publication, Wonder Woman's appearance among those in the Justice Society who appeared at the House Un-American Activities Committee hearing was considered an error since the original Golden Age Wonder Woman was erased from post-Crisis history. At one point the only possible modern explanation for her appearance is that it was the current Wonder Woman's mother Hippolyta who went back in time to become the post-Crisis Golden Age Wonder Woman. As published however, the character depicted is clearly the original. Later changes to continuity solved the contradiction.
