Day 75: Athleta
Fitness and physical education teacher for the young Amazons of Paradise Island, Athleta instructs her students by introducing them to various games and sports in an effort to make exercise fun for the young ones, and get them into the habit of engaging in physical activity on their own without the need of her coaching.

The Amazons have a wide array of sports which the Amazonettes undetake in their lessons.
Games such as

Amazonian Baseball
Vaguely similar in appearance to American baseball. The game is played with a 100 lbs iron ball the size of a beach ball and a solid iron club serving as a bat.
The batter stands at the center of the field, and the pitcher stands at home. The goal is for the pitcher to throw the ball as hard as she can, in an effort to knock the bat from the batters hands.

If the batter is able to bat the ball away and remain holding onto the bat for three strikes, the pitcher is out.
However if the batter loses her grip on the bat, the pitcher must run across all four bases to score a point.

Meanwhile, the batter must try to stop the pitcher by grabbing her between bases. While the people at said bases will attempt to bodily tackle the batter and wrestle her down so that the pitcher can clear the bases.
I so want to play this.

Amazonian tennis
Played with solid iron balls the size of bowling balls, and bronze rackets the size of vacuum cleaners, and a six foot high net. The sport differs from the better known version in that there is no out of bounds, there are no rounds, and the game is played continuously as an endurance match until one of the players either gives up, or passes out from exhaustion.

Ordeal of a thousand Chains
A game that is practice for an Amazons right of passage, children start out by being bound with rope and thrown into a glass tank, with the goal of breaking free and swimming to the surface. (Disclaimer: This sport requires adult supervision.)

It is so named for as a child grows progressively more skilled, they will be given wire, then chain. Eventually working their way up to one thousand chains which is when they will be considered ready to tackle the right of passage.

Bullets and Bracelets
That old schoolyard favorite~
As everybody knows, its a simple enough game where you stand in front of a wall and have fun as the turret mounted machine gun fires a neverending cascade of bullets which players must deflect! You lose if you can't deflect the bullets. And win if the gun runs out of ammunition.

Amazonian Football
Instead of strictly eleven players, it can have as few as seven per team at once. And instead of trying to run to the opposite end of the field carrying the ball, players are required to use only their feet, to kick the ball into the opposing teams net on the opposite side of the field, which is guarded by a single player who is specifically allowed to use her hands.
Amazonian sports are weird.
Oh, and the ball is solid iron.

Day 76: Gail Young
Former zebra slave of the original Cheetah, Gail was singled out by the Cheetah upon discovering that Gail posessed unusual powers of the mind which allowed her to read a persons innermost thoughts and secrets.

Upon turning Gail into one of her minions, she sent the zebra off to spy on Wonder Woman, and find out her weaknesses. Instead, Gail would discover Wonder Womans secret identity of Diana Prince! Before the zebra'd Gail could give the Cheetah this information however, she was caught by Wonder Woman who used the magic lasso to return Gail to normal. Due to Gails powers, she was able to retain her memories of being under the Cheetahs control and was now imune to Cheetah's control ever more.

Gail Young would actually go on to be a greater thorn in the Cheetah's side than Wonder Woman. Having become 'familiar with the Cheetah's mental imprints' she would know whenever the Cheetah had surfaced to become the dominant personality, and would contact Wonder Woman, giving the amazon a detailed explanation of the Cheetah's schemes.

Diana was quite worried about having someone who knew about her secret identity out there and was tempted to use her magic lasso to command Gail to forget about it.

However, Wonder Woman had long since commanded herself to only use her magic lasso for good and to never use it for ill or selfish deeds.
That very command prevented Wonder Woman from mind wiping Gail Young to protect her secret identity because according to the magic lasso itself MIND WIPING PEOPLE FOR PETTY REASONS LIKE PROTECTING YOUR SECRET IDENTITY IS MORALLY WRONG!

That said, Gail proved to be a woman of integrity who never revealed this knowledge to anyone. Only using it to more quickly contact Wonder Woman when the Cheetah was up to no good.

Gail would eventually go on to become a private detective. Using her powers of extra sensory perception to sniff out mysteries that none dare speak of aloud.

Also, I just want to add that it would be so very easy to make a superhero team just out of allies Wonder Woman has made over the years.
Just from the characters ive named so far you have
Etta Candy (Power of being the most awesome)
The Baroness (Super genius scientist)
Leo the Lion (Proportionate speed and strength of a lion)
Marya the Giantess (ALL the super strength)
Agent Malone (crackshot undercover operative)
Gail Young (Mind reader)
Im far from done with naming all of Wonder Womans allies and friends but so far alone in my list, Wonder Woman has enough super talented people that she could form her own Justice League!

Day 77: Professor Marlowe

Philantropist who is receiving funding from Naval intelligence, Professor Marlowe is the inventor of 'the Chemic-Extracto' a machine which can filter and extract specific chemicals and minerals from the water, separating it and producing those chemicals in their concentrated form, leaving the water purified.

His intention in inventing it was to extract chemicals from sea water such as Iodine, Magnesium, bromine and other chemicals from seawater, in an efforts to reduce cost of medicines to nothing for the betterment of mankind.

His invention was so impressive, that in a day, it can extract said chemicals from a cubic mile of ocean water per day, at an estimated value of 5 billion dollars in chemical compounds. ($9,947,947,447.70 in todays rates.)

The value of this machine is incredible for the same methods used to extract chemicals could also be used to extract germs, making it the ultimate purifier. And since it was originally creater for sea water, it could be used to clean up chemical spills that would otherwise harm the eco system.

Unfortunately, a criminal organization caught wind of the value of the machine and sought to steal it for their own gains. Taking advantage of General Darnell being on vacation and Steve Trevor being away on a mission to make their move, confident that military intelligence wouldn't be able to stop them.

What they did not count on, was the third in Army Intelligence chain of command to be the most skilled of them all! Thats right, Diana Prince was left in charge while the two were gone and assembled the intelligence departments spies and operatives to canvas the city, gathering clues and discovering information, until she was able to put the pieces together and discover that the officials from Naval Intelligence had been replaced with criminal malcontents, who intended to simply sail away with the invention with Professor Marlowe in tow.

Changing into Wonder Woman, it was a quick swim out into the middle of the ocean for Wonder Woman to round up the entire crime ring and save the good professor, whose dedication to bettering the world would make a huge difference for generations to come!

Day 78: Bubs Hartley
Best friend of Steve Trevor and husband to Wanda Hartley, Bubs is a test pilot who makes a living trying out experimental aircraft for the military.

One day, Bubs was testing out the latest aircraft when he was scooped up by beings from above, and given a fancy piece of jewelry.

It was the cloud people, and the jewelry is manacles.
He would eventually be rescued along with the other pilots after weeks of hard labor.

A rather minor character overall, what makes Bubs stand out is how similar his story is to Hals origin. In fact, quite a number of stories in Wonder Womans golden age bear an eerie resemblance to superhero origins that would be used in the future.

There was a boy with the post crisis origin for Barry Allen.

A scientist testing a new super weapon to replace the nuke when a kid wandered onto the testing ground.

A scientist experimenting with plants in a swamp.

A pair of identical twins who hung out in Texas and would switch places with one another to maintain their secret identities.

A wealthy scientist being forced by nazis to build an armored suit

I don't know if it was other books drawing from Wonder Woman for inspiration or a weirdly prophetic coincidence, but its shocking how many adventures in Wonder Woman stories bear such weird resemblances to the origins for future characters.

Day 79: Brenda West

Formerly one of Cheetah's slaves, Brenda West is a wealthy socialite whose married to the secretary to the army, Brenda was captured by the Cheetah and turned into one of her Zebra women.

Taking advantage of Brendas infamous social events and galas, Cheetah used Brenda's events as a front to discreetly track down prey and bend them to her will using her powers. Using this so she might control America itself!

This is one of the most dangerous aspects of the original Cheetah. That she was capable of creating an army of mind controlled minions with none the wiser. Allowing her to have nearly a hundred victims under her thrall.

What Cheetah did not count on however, was Gail Youngs psychic sleuthing sniffing her out and Wonder Womans magic lasso breaking her hold over the poor innocents!

However were it not for the aid of a mind reader, even Wonder Woman would have been hard pressed to discover all of Cheetah's thralls. As they could be anyone. Anywhere...Working to serve the Cheetah's will with none the wiser...

Day 80: Daredevil Dix
Owner of the Bar-X ranch, rival to the Candys Bar-L ranch, Daredevil Dix inherited the ranch from his father Daring Dix.

Investigating the property shortly after gaining control of it, he discovers that he is sitting on a rich uranium deposit! That said, the deposit is smack dab between his land and the Candys ranch.

So, he approaches Hard Candy and strikes a deal. The both of them would gamble the ten acres bordering one anothers property, on the annual Bar Rodeo! A popular local event wherin the two ranches bring out their best cattle and compete to see who can hold their own in the rodeo to end all rodeos!

Hard Candy, unaware of the Uranium, agrees, and Daredevil Dix cackles with glee, confident that he would easily be able to defeat Hard and his ranch hands.

His gloating was short lived however, when Etta Candy arrived with the Holliday Girls rodeo champions! Oh, and her friend Diana Prince. For as confident as Daredevil was, he knew that Etta Candy would mop the floor with them.

So, devising a plan, he picks up the most expensive of chocolates and attempts to woo Etta, convincing her to throw the match. Etta however, would have none of his masculine wiles, and said he was free to give her as much candy as he wished after he soundly defeated him in the rodeo.

So getting desperate, he sneaks onto the Candy property at night and sets fire to their barn, intending to murder their horses, meaning the Candys would be forced to drop out!
Before Etta could run into the blaze to save the innocent equines, Wonder Woman appeared from seemingly nowhere and PICKED UP THE BURNING BARN SO THAT THE ANIMALS COULD RUN OUTSIDE!

The horses safe, Etta goes back to her home to tell her father about the incident, while Wonder Woman investigates the wreckage, looking for clues over who was behind it.

Daredevil Dix, having failed on the horses, orders his men to kidnap the holliday girls and the Candys ranch hands, and with that, they carried them off into the Texas wilderness, intending to kill them in a way that made it look like an accident.

With the dozen people missing, Wonder Woman goes off in search of them just as the rodeo begins, meaning the only person representing the Bar-L ranch was Etta Candy.

With no other choice, Etta Candy declared that she would enter into every competition IN PLACE OF EVERY SINGLE MISSING PERSON! This meant that Etta Candy would enter into every event one dozen times back to back without rest, in competition with Daredevils handpicked team of ranch hands and professional rodeo champions.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman would discover the kidnapped Holliday girls and ranch hands from the Bar-L ranch, tied up in a canyon with a herd of stampeding camel coming their way!
Wonder Woman, jumping down between the innocents and the oncoming bulls and when they drew close she would pick them up and toss them clear to the other side of the group where the bulls kept running. Doing this until she had run out of cattle to toss into the air.

untying everyone, Wonder Woman hurried back with them to the rodeo to find that they were on the last round of the last event. a bull riding competition with the scores tied. Thanks to Etta Candys sheer awesomeness, she was effortlessly able to do the work of twelve people! That said, her hands were numb and her legs wobbly after so much strain, and she simply couldn't go on to complete that final match.

Fortunately, Wonder Woman stepped up to stand in for Etta, and entering the bull competiton, she got on the bull and...Asked it to please stop bucking around. The bull, impressed that someone was polite enough to ask, stopped and just stood there for a few minutes until Wonder Woman was declared to have set a new record and with that, The Bar-L ranch won the rodeo!

But that was not all for between the barn and the event at the canyon, Wonder Woman had pieced together who was behind everything and using her lasso on Daredevil Dix, she made him confess to all wrong doing, and revealed the existence of the uranium deposit.

With the bet, Hardy Candy now owns the entire deposit but already having more money than he knew what to do with, and impressed by his darling daughter, Hard Candy turned around and donated the deposit to the Holliday school to go towards 'Research into peaceful uses for splitting atoms.'

Day 81: Sandra Stripes
Another woman enthralled by the Cheetah, Sandra upon becoming one of the Cheetahs Zebra women was commanded to...Live a completly carefree and ordinary life. Save that is, for being regulaly contacted by Cheetah, just to check in.

For as part of her orders, if Sandra does not hear from Cheetah within three months time, she is to don a Cheetah costume herself and commit a number of crimes in order to pin the blame on Priscilla Rich. To go on and confront Priscilla directly, pretending to be the true Cheetah. Harassing and demeaning the poor woman until her confidence shatters, allowing the animal spirit of the Cheetah to take hold once again.

For Sandra is a contingency plan of the Cheetah's in the event that Priscilla actually develops a backbone and the willpower to resist the Cheetah's mental hold over her. A means of freeing herself no matter how hard Priscilla may resist.

The true terror of this is not that the Cheetah had one such agent. But the possibility that she kept a string of sleeper agents littering the country who after a set period of time, will go on a rampage, in order to force Priscilla to become the Cheetah once more.

For Wonder Woman did aprehend Sanda, and bottle the Cheetah once again. But even she cannot be certain that the Cheetah didn't plant more agents like Sandra. Lying in wait for the command to take hold.

Day 82: Duna

Just to get this out of the way because I can't HELP but notice this nagging inaccuracy, Marston really didn't look up what actual native names are when writing this story. Its kinda obvious. ^^;

Duna is an Alaskan native who sent out a message to Wonder Woman in a plea for help. For her fiance, Karluck had been falsely accused of murdering engineer and prospector Tom Sands, and nobody was willing to even look into it because it was a white man who was murdered and another guy by the name of Lim Snait insists he commited the crime.

The jury, convinced Karluck was guilty because of his race, Duna reached out to Wonder Woman in the hopes that she could defend him.

Wonder Woman getting her message, flies off to Alaska and on the way to their unspecific village out in the middle of nowhere, she somehow winds up passing ice break up in the middle of the ocean, where she happens upon a collapsed form clinging to a piece of crumbling ice, as a herd of five hundred polar bears swim towards her to feast!

Diving into the ocean, Wonder Woman swims under the ice, lifts it up from the water with one hand and swims one handed through the sea of polar bears until reaches land! Getting the poor figure into her invisible jet, the prone figure introduces herself as Duna, and reveals that Lim Snait tried to murder her and make it look like an accident when she saw him going through Tom Sands things.

Wonder Woman, now knowing what was going on, arrives just in time for Karlucks sentencing where upon she declares herself to be Karlucks lawyer and calling Lim Snait to the stand, she uses the magic lasso to make him confess to killing Tom Sands, for the engineer had struck gold, which Lim intended to steal for himself!

Karluck declared innocent and Lim Snait guilty, Wonder Woman succeeded in arguing for the property to be donated to the native peoples for the use of building schools and helping native children to recieve a good education 'so we can exchange our wonderful cultures and wealth of knowledge.'

As far as I know this is the only Wonder Woman story where she even visits Alaska so naturally I had to mention it. XD

But it also serves as an example of how Wonder Woman will not stand for any form of discrimination. Be it gender or race.

Also, it can't be stressed enough by now that Wonder Woman really valued education. She would constantly go out of her way to push for greater efforts in educating youths and bettering young minds.

Day 83: Patsy Peters
Holliday girl of the Beeta Lamda sorority, Patsy comes from a family of farmers from the midwest and unlike many of her peers, comes from a rather humble life. Unlike Etta who paid her tutition up front, Patsy stood out thanks to her impressive academic scores and was granted a scholarship, which she scooped up with much glee.

However, Patsy had no intentions of just gaining an education and leaving her life on the farm. Rather, she chose to major in agriculture and animal husbandry, so she might put a college education to good use in improving her families farm and sharing her wealth of knowledge with others in her quiet home town.

Another curious hazing ritual for the Beeta Lamda sorority and what is considered the most heinous by its initiates, is being forced to spend ones free hours locked in their room and literally chained to a desk studying and doing school work for the period of one month.

And a students attempted escape is so counted on, that the Beeta Lamda girls have a tradition to don hunting outfits as if their going fox hunting, and for the full sorority to hunt her down like the escaped Holliday girl that she is, so they might lock her away in her room to study!

Sororities are weird.

Day 84: Carla

One of the women whose psyches were broken by the Baroness, robbing them of free will or the ability to do anything without being told.

Carla like the other victims of the Baroness was taken to Reform island in an effort to help her recover and like the others, her compulsion to obey was transferred from the Baroness to Mala in an effort to give them more positive reinforcement. (For the Baroness was unrepentant in her villainy for quite a while.)

After an unspecified though long period of time, Carla for the first time since she was captured by the Baroness, showed an interest in something. In this case, the metal work of the Amazons and the skill that goes into smelting such treasures.

Mala recognizing this, urged Carla to do what she wants and Carla took this to heart. First she simply watched the Amazons at work until after a time, she spoke up. Asking if she could try. This was a major breakthrough for Carla and soon, she herself became an Amazonian blacksmith.


Crafting chains and balls for sporting events, Carla had found a new passion after all others were robbed from her by the influence of the Baroness.

The first of what was hopefully many breakthroughs for the victims of the Baroness.

Day 85: Jimmy Banks Jr
Son of Officer Banks of the New York police force, Jimmy Banks was a rapscallion youth who dreamed of one day becoming a police officer like his father.

So greatly did he hold this dream that he would take his fathers unloaded gun and go out and play cops and robbers using his fathers real gun for his playing.

One day, he would pretend Steve and Diana were two such robbers and pretend to arrest them. Something neither adult take well to. The pair scold young Jimmy, pointing out that it was dangerous to go around with a real gun, and that he could end up seriously hurt if he continued to play with such things.

Telling Jimmy to go home, they make him promise not to play with the gun again.

However, unbeknownst to Steve and Diana, they were being watched by Slick Skeener, a criminal hoping to take out Steve so that he could prove himself capable of replacing crime brain Doone as leader of the Sly Fox mafia.

An idea coming to him, Slick approached young Jimmy and talked about how cool his gun looked and asked to see it. While Jimmy was boasting about his father, he didn't pay attention as Slick loaded the gun and handed it back to young Jimmy Banks jr. He suggested that Jimmy try playing with Steve and Diana again, pointing out that they didn't let him arrest them before.

Jimmy loving this idea, ran over to the two and pointing his gun at Steve like before, Jimmy pulled the trigger...And shot Steve in the head.

This being the middle of a public street, it soon drew quite a crowd. Including Jimmys own father who was horrified to discover what his son had done.

Before even an ambulance could arrive however, Diana scooped Steve up in her arms and ran off with him for the old lab of the Baroness, where she kept a spare resurrection machine.

Removing the bullet, she uses her talents as a surgeon to patch up the wound as fast as possible, and used the ressurection machine to revive him fully.

While it would take time for him to recover, Diana went back to check on Jimmy and found him in the court room with his father officer Banks who was turning himself in, declaring that he deserves to serve time for the crime for not keeping a better eye on his son much to the despair of young Jimmy Banks.

Fortunately Wonder Woman was able to sort everything out before the worst could occur and capture the true criminal Slick Skeener, but Jimmys tale is a sobering reminder of the dangers that firearms posess even in the hands of the most innocent.

Day 86: Professor Buggo

Leader of the bug people, Professor Buggo like all of his kind is a multi-cellular micro-cellular virus with a mixture of characteristics resembling humans and mosquitoes.

Discovering these strange life forms, Gerta Von Gunther invented a size altering ray so she could enlarge one to human size so she might study it and understand how something like it could even exist.
What she did not count on however, was for the bug people to in reality, be intelligent beings. Thus the creature knocked out Gerta and ran off with the size changing ray, enlarging the Bug People city.

Gerta informed Wonder Woman of what happened and Diana went to Paradise Island so she might use the Magic Sphere to search for the enlarging ray, but had no luck. This is due to the magic sphere having a range that limits it to within the planets stratosphere. For beyond that, it is incapable of perceiving the past, present and future of all things.

Thus, Wonder Woman took to the skies with a telescope and discovered a cloud of dust hanging just past the stratosphere. Entering it, she discovered the large cloud was in reality, the enlarged bug people capital where their leader Professor Buggo was experimenting with the device, with the intention of enlarging all Bug People, so they may sit at the pinnacle as the most powerful of life forms.

Their intentions? Infesting the galaxy and devouring it as they consume resources to continuously grow and expand their empire with little concern for the universal eco system from their never ending expansion.

Thus, Professor Buggo turned the device on Wonder Woman and shrank her down to microscopic size, so that she would be incapable of interfering with their plans. However, Buggo did not count on the fact that this was Wonder Woman he was messing with! Thus the seemingly insignificant Wonder Woman punched an elephant sized hole through his laboratory wall, picked up the size changing ray and made a run for it! Leaping from the cloud, she landed upon her invisible jet, restored herself to normal size and shrank the bug people civilization back down to their micro cellular size, so that would return to their life before the contact made by Gerta Von Gunther.

Returning to Gertas lab, she explained to the young scientist your "Your scientific drive must be controlled by love or you'll create evil instead of humanitarian services for the world"
And with that, Gerta vowed to be more cautious in her pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge, least she do something to worsen the world instead.

Whether she will actually follow through given her stubborn nature and tendency to ignore everything outside of her own scientific curiosity is another matter entirely.

Day 87: Rita Novelle
Graduate of the Holliday College, Rita Novelle proceeded to run for mayor of Tribono city when she was approached by an organization known as the Blue Seal gang. Promising her the election if she sits nice and snug in their pocket, the gang threatened to ruin her if she didn't play nice.

Rita refused and despite over a dozen drive by shootings, flash mobs going after her supporters and narrowly surviving a hit that landed her in the hospital, Rita managed to win the election.

That last stunt earned the attention of Wonder Woman who naturally having concern for one of her dear friends from the Holliday college, offered to lend a hand.

But with Rita in the hospital, there was not much she could do. Fortunately, her kid sister and aspiring writer Chic Novelle had been following all of the news related to the Blue Seal gang and found that all breaking news regarding the organization was first posted by 'Fearless Men Magazine' and written by its top journalist, Seldom Wright.

Off to pay him a visit, they find Seldom was a petty misogynist who in reality doesn't actually do much in the way of actual journalism. Instead, he is given reports by his boss and owner of the magazine Mr. Crymynyl Leeder and he jots them down, confident that it must be accurate since his boss says it must be true.

Diana does a little digging and soon discovers that until Rita began running for mayor, nobody had heard of this Blue Seal gang and that there was no records of the town ever having a criminal gang problem until the recent attacks on Rita Novelle.

While Wonder Woman is doing her research however, the criminals kidnap Rita Novelle!

Seldom Wright, on his way to the hospital to interview Rita, spots the criminals and chases after them, managing only to get himself captured and all seemed doomed!

That is were it not for the wind blowing by and helpfully telling Wonder Woman what had transpired and handily giving her instructions to the criminals secret hideout.

Rushing to their villainous lair which happened to be a condemed house owned by Fearless Men magazine, she effortlessly rescues Seldom Wright and Rita Novelle. And captures the half dozen members of the Blue Seal gang to boot!

Unmasking their mastermind, it is revealed to be none other than Crymynyl Leader, owner of Fearless Men magazine! It turned out that his true goal was to do away with a woman in power no matter the cost. For the idea of a woman in a position of power so horrified Crymynyl that he would stoop to murder if it meant ensuring it never happened.

Seldom Wright meanwhile realizing that he had been a huge asshat, apologizes for his asshattery, and goes on to found a magazine that focused on awesome badass women in the world with the help of Chic Novelle who would end up growing close to the seldom right Mr Wright.

And thus, Rita Novelles mayorship was secure and the city of Tribono prospered!

Day 88: Sergent Doot.

The armies expert in physical training, Sergent Doot is in charge of coordinating the training regimes of soldiers to ensure that they have the best possible training to serve in the military.

One day he received an order from higher ups to do the impossible: Train soldiers to be as strong as Wonder Woman.

Looking up the ambassador of peace's feats, he found official military records on things from 'towing a submarine one handed underwater as it went full power in the opposite direction.' to 'traveled from New York to Los Angeles in one hour on foot' And no matter how he crunched the numbers, he could find no physically possible way for him to train anyone to do these things.

Thus, in an effort to keep his job, he began attempting a campaign to disprove the existance of Wonder Woman so that he could claim all of the feats attributed to her are physically impossible.

However, its a heck of alot harder to do those things when the person in question makes tons of public appearances, is contactable by Army Intelligence, and has cemented herself as a worldwide household name.

As a last ditch effort, he goes to army intelligence and tries to convince its head Phillip Darnell to publicly announce Wonder Woman isn't real when who should walk in but the Amazon herself.

Juggling Darnells desk while chatting with Sergent Doot, Wonder Woman calmly informs the blustering disbelieving Sergent that what she is doing is real. That she is not using wires or special props. She even tosses the desk to him to catch (which he gets pinned under, prompting Wonder Woman to pick it up for him.)

Disbelieving, Doot insists that there must be a trick to her super strength so he asks if she is an alien. (Superman) To which she declares no, she is a normal flesh and blood human being.Sergent Doot then suggests that she took some sort of super serum (Captain America) or was exposed to some strange radiation. (Atom) Which Wonder Woman also denies. He then accuses her of using a device of super science (Starman) or magic (Green Lantern) to perform these feats which Wonder Woman denies.

He point out that Wonder Woman is only five feet tall and that her arms are no thicker than the average woman and insists there must be a trick to it for no one could be that strong.

Wonder Woman explains to him that it is simply brain power. That she like all of the other Amazons simply mastered the means of channeling ones mental energy into their muscles, granting them incredible strength. She explains to him that there is no difference between her and any other woman in the world, and that anyone could do what she does with the right training. That any woman has the potential to be a Wonder Woman.

Doot would not have alot of involvement in Wonder Womans mythos, but his investigation does grant the opportunity to point out the most basic aspect of golden age Wonder Woman. That she wasn't some clay golem or demigod or empowered by magic. She was granted life by Aphrodite which made her a completely mortal human just like all of the other Amazons. And all of her feats of wonder and daring doo are from training and hard work. Not because she was born with incredible powers. But because she worked for it.

Day 89: Professor Astronomo

Astronomy professor of the Holliday college, Professor Astronomo is a man whose dedication to celestial bodies is rivaled only by his concern for the enviorment. His scientific focus specializes in the spacial enviorment and his focus on the possible dangers on the ecosystem of the universe.


Be it space littering, the potential dangers of mining the moon, the gravitational hazards of creating a highway from Earth to Saturn, Professor Astronomo can be counted on to voice his concerns and make his voice heard for the good of the environment of outerspace.

And when he isn't doing that, he is speaking up in defense of the ozone layer and fighting against products which could deplete it. A problem which prompted Wonder Woman to hurriedly invent a machine specifically for repairing it after an experimental military jet mannaged to punch a visible gaping hole in the thing.

Professor Astronomo, the unsung hero of space environmentalism.

Day 90: Queen Flamina
Absolute ruler of the sun, Queen Flamina is the ruler of the sun people. A race of beings who are stable chemical explosions with a humanoid appearance, with an internal temperature of 7000 degrees.

Essentially fire elementals, the Sun People are bound to sun, unable to ever leave least they die from the cold for they need temperatures equal to that of the sun to live.

The sun people far outnumber the other populations of the solar system for a single sun city contains more people than the entire population of humans on the Earth.

Consuming the heat of the sun itself for sustenance, the sun people have crafted an incredibly advanced civilization using a soft malleable metal known as sun metal to build their cities, and have invented a means of harnessing solar energy to power their machines. (They have a SLIGHT advantage in terms of solar energy efficiency.)

Cultivating sun flowers and other plants native to their home star, the Sun people have also domesticated much of the fauna which call the sun their home. Beasts such as the giant elephant sized solar pegasus which has the strength to effortlessly carry a dozen people on its back with little trouble.

The greatest strength of the sun people aside from their natural immunity to any form of heat, is the mastery of forging fire. A means of creating solid flames which burn hotter than the sun itself, this is the only means that the sun people have of restraining their criminals for forged flames are an unbreakable substance which even Wonder Woman herself is helpless to overcome.

However for all their great advances and abilities, the sun people are a fearful and paranoid race who look to the earth with nervous hostility. For studying the Earthlings and what they deem 'a war-like nature' they are convinced the Earth one day intends to invade the sun, enslave its people and conquer the star for their own.

To this end, they built a giant solar power laser (which is basically an overgrown magnifying glass.) and intended to cook the Earth, thinking to kill the humans before the humans killed them.

Finding out about this, Wonder Woman headed for the sun and had little trouble finding and destroying the laser, declaring "Peace and security can never be achieved through violence and fear. You must reach out to those you fear with love and compassion. Not prejudice and suspicion"

Convincing the sun people that the Earth was not a threat to them, Wonder Woman returned to Earth, with the sun people swayed by Wonder Womans words.

I wonder how they would react to knowing that there are Earth scientists who are even now toying with the idea of bubbling the sun with solar panels and turning the star into an overgrown battery...

Day 91: Wild Bill Loomis
Professional boxer, Wild Bill Loomis was wandering into a boxing gym one day demanding a fight when some short well rounded redhead said she could do with a work out.

Wild Bill, scoffing at this, took to the ring expecting a quick match...When he was KO'd with a single punch. When he came to, his opponent introduced herself as Etta Candy and the two became fast friends, with Etta giving Loomis a few pointers on how to hold his own in the ring.

Months later, Wild Bill Loomis is fighting for the championship title when criminal gambler and racketeer King Diamond kidnapped his wife Nancy. King threatened to kill her if Wild Bill didn't throw the match and Bill....Busted into his hideout, laid out a dozen armed mobsters with his fists, and walked out with his wife, threatening to give King Diamond a broken jaw if he tried that again.

Outraged, King Diamond got an idea and had the crooks Bill took out murdered on the spot and pinned the killings on Wild Bill, declaring that he went berserk and broke into the place to kill them for no reason.

Finding evidence that he was in the hide out and that Bill did attack him, the police arrested the boxer and took him away, which would ensure that he would be unable to participate in the championship match.

Etta, knowing her friend was framed, telepathically called Wonder Woman for help.
Diana meanwhile, had a weekend off from her job at army intelligence and decided to spend it visiting everyone on Paradise Island. There, she participated in a kanga boxing tournament.

A kanga boxing tournament of course, being where you play in a large circular stadium with a netted pit in the center. Participants have padded lances and the goal is to knock your rivals and their riding kangas into the netted pit until you are the only one left standing.

Winning the tournament, Diana proceeded to show off a collection of films she made during her time. This was naturally conducted in the Sapho Hall. An indoor theater made specifically for sharing ones creative works. (And I presume, lesbian poetry)

Her films were not spectacular things. Simply Wonder Woman filming all of her friends from the outside world and using the chance to introduce them all to her family on Paradise Island.

As she was in the process of showing off the friends she made, Diana was contacted by Etta and hurried back to investigate and found that Nancy Loomis had been kidnapped, and Bill was being blackmailed to confess to the crime least she be killed!

Wonder Woman, being the unparalleled detective that she is, deduced that it just might be King Diamond behind all of this given the events that were explained to her. Thus she did what any sensible person would do.
She kidnapped a police Sergent, carried him off over one arm and storming into King Diamonds private mansion, she rescues Nancy Loomis.

Before Wonder Woman even had the chance to pull out the lasso, King Diamond began gloating that he would simply frame Wonder Woman for a few murders like he did with Bill Loomis. Whiiiich was a pretty handy confession that lead to him being arrested and Bill going free.

Thus with the whole mess resolved, the match went as planned and Wild Bill Loomis defeated the champ Rocky Jenks, declaring that it would have been impossible for him were it not for the support of his loving wife, the training he received from Etta Candy, and the aid of Wonder Woman.

Day 92: Professor Alto

Professor of aerodynamics at the Holliday college, Professor Alto is a man who was determined to find a clean means of getting into space which did not involve something so cumbersome as a rocket engine!

His plan? Harnessing a gas lighter than the absence of air, and filling a dozen lead balloons!

He intended to fasten these balloons to an air tight cockpit and simply float up into the air until someone reached outer space, where they would be able to freely travel around!

And sure enough, his plan worked!...Sorta.
His invention was able to propel him high into the sky and in a short matter of time, he was in the upper exosphere, floating high above the earth further than anyone had gone before without a rocket or a kangaroo to assist them!

However, despite his grandiose plans, he underestimated the basic necessity of propulsion and thus while he had technically reached outer space, he had no means of well, propelling himself. Thus he floated, lacking a means of going anywhere, and light enough that gravity would not simply bring him back down to earth.

Fortunately, a few of the Holliday girls had gone with him and contacting Wonder Woman with the mental radio, the lot of them were soon rescued by Wonder Woman with the use of a sky kanga.

Despite his failure however, Professor Alto swore he would not give up, determined to one day make space travel an easily affordable reality for the common man!

I rather like Professor Alto's idea and I cannot help but wonder if it might have worked had he the assistance of some form of 'space elevator' that reached just into the exosphere, to pick him up once he got that high.

Day 92: Intiyan

Ancient ruler of an Incan city, Intiyan was a woman of unparalleled spirit and courage who in the face of an invading armor come to slaughter them for their valuables, ordered the men to take what treasures they had and flee into the river while she lead the women of the village to defend their city under siege, refusing to surrender and become the slaves of the savage fiends.

Meanwhile on Paradise Island in the distant past well before Wonder Woman left Paradise Island, Queen Hippolyta was using the magic sphere to gaze upon the outside world, hoping to find some sign that mankind was not ruled completely by savagery. A sign that there were women of greatness out there who would not give up. Proof that the world was not beyond all hope.

That was when she saw Intiyan, leading the woman of her city to fight off an invading army, refusing to surrender and swearing to save her people.

Hippolyta stirred by her courage, wished more than anything to save that village and prevent the world from losing someone so noble as Intiyan. Praying to Aphrodite for help, Hippolyta wished more than anything to do something to help them!

And thus appearing from thin air before her was Wonder Woman! Hundreds of years before the name would be spoken! Declaring Hippolytas prayers were answered, she declared she was born of Hippolytas dearest wish and that she would go forth and save in her mothers name.

With that, Wonder Woman ran for the the beach, swam across the Atlantic, lept across the Andes and reached the village on foot within an hour!

Hippolyta watched awe struck as Wonder Woman lept onto the city walls, picked up the scaling ladders and tossed them aside effortlessly, and began catching spears and boulders pitched at her with nary a problem until the frightened invaders turned tail and ran!

Wonder Woman, wanting to ensure they would never return, ran back to the andes and began scooping up mountains, carrying them back to the city and depositing them in a wall around the Incan city until it sat in the center of a valley!

The city saved, Wonder Woman addressed Hippolyta, knowing she was watching and declared that she would one day return to the world, and bring about peace through love and compassion!

With that, she vanished as suddenly as she appeared.

Fast forward to the present day, Wonder Woman returns to Paradise Island, having visited Queen Cura of the secret Incan city and tells her mother about something strange she had seen there. A statue of a woman who looked just like her down to the same attire, who Cura explained had come to save them many hundreds of years ago.

Diana asked her mother if she knew anything about it and Hippolyta simply smiled and told her daughter that she is such a wondrous symbol for love and peace that her influence spanned across time and space.

Day 93: Keela

Slave of the Baroness back when she was still evil and such, Keela had been trained by Paula Von Gunther in speaking ancient Greek, mastery of various weapons, and to serve as an expert pick pocket.

Her mission? Infiltrate Paradise Island and steal Queen Hipolytas magic girdle, and bring it back to the Baroness.

Paula gave Keela one of her greatest inventions, a device that straps onto ones back and grants them invisibility. (Why hasn't this come up since shes turned good? This would totes be useful) and having her tail Wonder Womans best friend Etta Candy, Keela happened to see Wonder Woman bringing her SBFF with her to Paradise Island using the invisible jet.

Having little trouble stowing away with her invisible form, Keela discreetly arrived on the island and over the course of days, exploring and creating a detailed map for the Baroness to use later, Keela snuck up on Hippolyta over her normal daily events and stole the magic girdle from her person without the queen even noticing!

Making a run for the invisible jet, Keela and through her the Baroness,'s victory seemed certain. That is, were it not for Keela stumbling upon a snare set by Etta Candy who was hunting deer.

Hanging from the air and having dropped the belt, Keela tried to cut herself free and falling to the ground, managed to break the invisibility pack.

No longer invisible, Keela attempted to escape regardless but Etta, spotting the belt, made a grab for Keela! The spy, having come well equipped, pulled a knife intending to stab Etta in the back, when Mala arrived and with the two working together, they were effortlessly able to put an end to Keelas villainy and soon, the spy was transported to reform island to be rehabilitated. Eventually to be joined by the Baroness and the others enslaved by her will.

She would eventually go on to be reformed. Her talent for languages and talent for moving silently earned her much respect amongst the Amazons who welcomed her as one of their own and forgave her for her past transgressions.

Amazing how close Paula came to being invulnerable though...

Day 94: Zoe
Amazon of Paradise Island, Zoe was one of the many amazons to participate in Dianas day, one of the holidays celebrated by all of Paradise Island.

Also known as the festival of the returning sun, Dianas day is the day when the afore mentioned moon goddess celebrates the return of her brother Apollo who rides a chariot pulling the sun. The holiday begins on the eve of the winter solstice and continues into the following day.

To celebrate his return, Diana the goddess of the moon, hunting, nature, and communing with nature; will fill her silver chariot with gifts, and travel across the world with the aid of nymphs who would pull her chariot. Delivering gifts to all, so that everyone may share her joy at her brothers return.

The amazons, celebrating this holiday themselves, do so with a wonderful ceremony. From all the Amazons, one among them is picked to don a silver mask bearing the goddess Diana's likeness. And wearing the mask, she will journey across the island delivering presents to all the Amazons both old and young!

For this year, the person chosen to play the role of the goddess Diana was appropriately enough, Princess Diana. Officially the only one who may know the true identity of the one behind the mask is the high priestess (Queen Hippolyta) However that does not stop people from guessing.

Donning the mask, Diana traveled from home to home, delivering gifts she obtained while in the outside world. From sporting equipment to foreign attire, Diana would place them in the empty quivers the Amazons left by their beds specifically for this night.

Now an important aspect of this celebration is that all Amazons are expected to sleep through the entire night. For not a creature can be stirring, not even a mouse as Diana goes about her business of delivering gifts.

However, an Amazon has the choice of pretending to be asleep, so they may try to catch the goddess delivering presents. For another part of this tradition is that an Amazon may try to catch the goddess. This is done not by catching the Amazon, but by stealing her mask. For if the mask is removed, the gift giver is no longer the goddess and instead must give the Amazon who caught her a special gift.

However, if the goddess is able to instead catch the amazon who tries to steal her mask (using rope left beside the empty quiver specifically for this task) the goddess will carry the naughty Amazon off for the next days celebrations.

Zoe, being one of several confident Amazons, attempted to catch the goddess unawares, only to be caught herself.

The following morning, Amazons of all ages would awaken to find their gifts left for them and spend their morning appreciating their gifts and getting together so they might speculate as to who the goddess was this year.

After the mingling is done and over with, the second half of Dianas day begins.
One tale about the goddess Diana tells of the time a hunter was wandering the woods looking for game when he spied upon the goddess vigorously communing with nature. the goddess Diana, outraged to discover a man was spying on her as she was communing with a wood nymph, turned him into a deer out of revenge and spent the day chasing that deer with bow and arrow, giving him a life changing experience.

Taking a note from this tale, the naughty Amazons who tried and failed to capture the goddess are dressed up as deer and set off into the woods, they are to run and hide, avoiding capture as the rest of the Amazons give chase with lassos, lariats, and trick arrows that make use of suction cups.

The hunt continues until all the deer are caught and dragged to the feast where the deer are skinned (their costumes are removed) and they are carried to the dinner table to the delight of the hunters who cheer as the deer do dances and acrobatics to the amusement of the gathered Amazons.

Once the entertainment is done and over with, the actual food will be brought out as all the Amazons feast and enjoy themselves with the islands entire population gathered on this most festive occasion.

Returning from the island after the holiday, Diana would encounter an excited Steve Trevor, who revealed that someone had left a mental radio by his bed which he found on the morning of the Winter Solstice. Doubtless delivered by Diana.

Perhaps Zoe will be the goddess herself next year.

Day 95: Doctor Hellas

A famous archaeologist who works at the Smithsonian Institute, Hellas became very excited when he gained possession of a scroll which changed hands several times before arriving on his desk. The language resembled Greek which the doctor presumed was a root form of it. (In reality it was a mutated version of it)

After much time working on translating the scroll, Doctor Hellas finally read it and much to his shock, discovered that it was in reality, a document containing the secret history of the Amazons!

To back up for a moment, while Doctor Hellas is convinced it is a long lost scroll dating back thousands of years, in reality, Etta Candy had asked Wonder Woman about the Amazons origins so Diana grabbed a scroll containing the history of her people but mannaged to lose it on the way to visit Etta.

Reading the scroll, he discovered the history of the Amazons.

Long, long ago, Ares the Greek God of War freely wandered the world, encouraging his followers to spread violence and death. He taught his followers that might gave you the right, that if you saw something you should take it. And if someone angers you, you should seek their death. He encouraged the keeping of slaves, especially women who were 'created to be slaves for men' and being the strongest, declared that they all ultimately answered to him, declaring himself their god king.

With mankind following his doctrine of war, hatred, prejudice, misogyny and might makes right, humanity suffered. Ares gloated that all life is ultimatly about war, the desire to kill and hatred. That concepts like love, compassion, and intellect were fanciful lies that he could effortlessly crush underfoot.

Aphrodite, fearing for humanity and knowing that they were better. That they were capable of great things and were more than mindless monsters of violence and wrath.

Thus, Aphrodite created the Amazons! Molding from from clay and giving them life, she granted to the first of them her magic girdle. Granting their queen invulnerability (Gifting her own invulnerability) And divine grace. (Anything that can go right, will go right.)

Aphrodite taught her Amazons of love. Of compassion. Of peace and ethics. Sending them out into the world with her blessing, and her hope that they would better the world.

And so they did. Taking Aphrodites teachings to heart, the Amazons under the leadership of Queen Hippolyta proceeded to form the first country. Amazonia. And soon created the arts. Founded the sciences. Established laws. They would chart the world and be the first to circumvent it. Bringing with them their knowledge and with it, planting the seeds for reason and civilization across the world.

Time passed, and with it, civilizations rose. Nations were formed. Humanity began to look to the world with wonder and curiosity. Began to create and build. Would choose to find common ground and work towards a peaceful sollution instead of fighting pointless wars. They sought one another out of love, not hatred.

This enraged Ares, who saw intelligence as useless and love as a weakness. The development of societies, and the creation of laws and government infuriated the war god who preferred humanity as mindless warring savages.

Thus, Ares sought out the mightiest of men, Hercules and somehow convinced him to make war on the Amazons.

Leading an army, Hercules waged war on the nation of Amazonia but with Queen Hippolyta at its head with her girdle of invincibility, the Amazons effortlessly destroyed the armies weapons and left them alive and humiliated.

Hercules, on his knees, begged for mercy and forgiveness, claiming to have fallen in love with Queen Hippolyta, and convinced her that he simply did it to gain her attention.

Hippolyta, believing him, took him at his word and welcomed him into Amazonia.

Hercules proceeded to romance her, and in the end, convinced her to give him her girdle of invincibility as a sign of her love for him.

However the moment she did so...Hercules took the girdle and fled back to his armies, using them to wipe the nation of Amazonia from the face of the Earth. Burning down their cities, slaughtering much of their people and enslaving the rest.

Hippolyta in chains, prayed for Aphrodite to save them from her foolishness and answering her prayer, Aphrodite said she would grant the Amazons the power to break their chains and overpowering even the might of Hercules with the girdle of invincibility upon his waist. In exchange however, the Amazons would be forced to forever more wear bracelets as a reminder of what happens when you submit to others.

With renewed strength, the Amazons broke their chains and Hippolyta did battle with Hercules. Taking from him the belt and laying him unconscious. Fleeing with the survivors by ship, the Amazons were guided by Aphrodite who brought them to Paradise Island where they would choose to remain in exile from the world. Having lost so much in what they saw as their failure to succeed in their mission.

But even though Ares had leveled Amazonia, rendering it little more than a memory, their legacy was not so easily extinquished. For the seeds of civilization grew and flourished, overtaking the world. For all Ares efforts, war would not consume the world.

Thus, Ares would take to the stars, for there were millions of worlds where war still held sway. Waiting for the day when he could conquer the Earth wholly and completely.

Many years would pass in the world as Ares, now called Mars, conquered world after world from his capital planet of Mars, enslaving countless millions. Finally, the war god, confident of his power, turned his sights on the earth and began clouding the minds of the worlds leaders, convincing them to make war with one another. And thus, the world wars began, with Ares declaring to all the gods that with war consuming the world, the Earth was now his and none could oppose him.

Thus it was that Aphrodite bid her high priestess to select one of her number to go out into the world, to better it and bring about peace through love and compassion.

And that is just what Queen Hippolyta did, sending Wonder Woman out into the world.

I cannot help but wonder at Doctor Hella's qualifications that he assumed a document that specifically name drops the world wars and Wonder Woman was an ancient document from the time of Ancient Greece.

Day 96: Faith Alden

Holliday Girl, Faith Alden is a history major with a love of American history. Thus when Paula Von Gunther invented a time machine of her very own and donated it to the Holliday College, Faith just had to try it out for fun.

So setting it for 1692, she headed for the Salem witch trials because they had been on her mind that day.

Which might have something to do with the fact that it was halloween...

And because she was currently dressed as a witch for a costume party...

Finding out what Faith had done and showing a remarkable amount of composure, Wonder Woman traveled back in time to bring Faith home, only to find Faith was shockingly enough, being tried as a witch to be executed.

Wonder Woman seeing this, dared them to test if she was a witch which they did.

They dropped her into a lake to see if she would drown but she held her breath for four hours.

They buried her with rocks to see if she would be crushed but her strength made it effortless

Declaring she was a witch, they attempted to hang her but tensing her neck muscles, she hung suspended in the air, not falling.

Having enough of their nonsense, Wonder Woman effortlessly broke her restraints and breaking the beam the noose was hung from with a sharp tug of the rope, she informed them that she was not a witch, and destroying the scaffolding of the hanging post entirely, she informed them that they would never again take the lives of innocents and using her magic lasso, she commanded them so.

Thus taking Faith back with her to the present day, they returned to find the Salem Witch trials were erased from the history books, due to Wonder Woman averting them completely.

All thanks to a Holliday girls curiosity.

Day 97: Carla Diamond

Daughter of Rock Diamond, famous gemstone connoisseur. Carla is an army nurse who tends to prisoners of war.


Stationed in Runtsky castle, she was tending to a prisoner by the name of Hermann Reich who boasted to her that the nazis had found the legendary Runtsky crown jewels, thought lost for decades when they controlled the castle. He offered to split the profits with her if she helped him to smuggle them to his contact, who would arrange for him to be pardoned for his crimes.

Carla Diamond refused and the next day, Hermann was declared dead. Committed suicide via a gunshot to the back of the head from ten feet away.

Carla told the soldiers what he had said but nobody believed her story and eventually heading back to the states, her luggage mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Puzzled, she assumed it fell overboard and headed home.

A few days later, Carla goes to check on her father to find him in handcuffs. With police declaring he was guilty of stealing the Runtsky crown jewels.

In disbelief, Carla looked on his desk and sure enough, there were the crown jewels...In her suitcase which she had thought lost. Declaring that it was her suitcase and that her father was innocent, the police took her away instead and thus Carla ended up imprisoned and awaiting trail for a crime she did not commit.

On the bright side of things though, she did have visitors. Such as her good friend and fellow war nurse Diana Prince who was concerned for Carla and wanted to hear her side of the story.

Diana, believing Carla and her father were innocent of any wrong doing, promised her dear friend that Wonder Woman would save the day.

And so she did! Using the traditional detective method of lassoing anyone involved until she got the answers she needed, Wonder Woman discovered that Rock Diamond had purchased the diamonds from a jewellery seller by the name of Spud Spangle, a former supply sergent who after the war, returned to the states with a fortune in precious jewels that never seemed to run out.

So going to ask him for information, Spud panicked and made a run for it in a private submarine, not expecting Wonder Woman to outswim the vehicle underwater.

Capturing Spud, Wonder Woman turned him into the police where he gave the whole story.

For in truth, Spud had soldiers in his pocket from his army days who were paid to comb territory formerly occupied by Nazi forces for valuables, which he would have smuggled in the luggage of returning army personel. During the course of the trip, some of his men who posed as workers on the ship would toss the smuggled luggage off of the ship, where Spud would collect it using his submarine.

And with that, Carla Diamond was cleared of all charges and the Runtsky crown jewels were reclaimed, to be returned to their rightful owners.

Day 98: Mint Candy
Brother of Etta Candy, Mint is a private in the army who has a very carefree and laid back view of life. He takes pride in his talent at riding horse back.

Even when delivering top secret documents across enemy lines, he can be counted on to enjoy his favorite minty candies, with a smile on his face.
While riding on a motorcycle. With his feet. While lying down. With his eyes closed. Along a winding mountain road. Over a gaping ravine with a hundred foot drop...

Regardless of what happens, and no matter the injury, Mint can be counted on to have a big dopey grin on his face. Even in the face of being shot in an effort to force him to give up critical information.

Hes also the sort of person who would put his life on the line for the safety of others on the spot, without pausing to even consider the dangers or risks. One such situation was when he found a woman caught in a flood he dived in after her, tied his life line to her waist, and had her pulled to safty, knowing he had no way to rescue himself.

He would eventually go on to marry Pepita Veldez, the most famous matador in all of Mexico, and immigrate to the country of her birth.
