The show was comic-strip, pure and simple, set in the 1940s.
Wonder Woman came from a "lost" island where a band of
Amazon women had fled ca. 200 B.C. to escape male domination
by the ancient Greeks and Romans. On Paradise Island they
found the magic substance Feminum, which when molded into
a golden belt gave them superhuman strength and in golden
bracelets could deflect bullets. It didn't help their love
life much, though, so when Major Steve Trevor of the U.S.
army crash-landed on the island during World War II, Wonder
Woman fell in love and returned with him to the U.S. in
the guise of his secretary. Major Trevor did not know her
powers, but when trouble threatened, Yeoman Prince could
disappear for a while, and whirl herself into Wonder Woman!
She then reappeared, clad in sexy tights and draped in a
cape that looked something like the American flag.
Her opponents were mostly Nazi agents, plus a few aliens
from outer space, all of whom were dispatched in slam-bang-
biff-pow style. Seen occasionally on Diana's side was
her younger sister, Drusilla, the "Wonder Girl."
