    A special 100-Page Giant collecting stories and tales from WONDER WOMAN issues past!

    When restaraunteur Henry Tudor learns that the star-shaped Celtic Amulet he wears can make wishes come true when Diana Prince, who wears a similar amulet, makes a wish, he tests it by wishing to become king of the world. The amulet’s power causes a U.S. bomber to head for Moscow, with orders to nuke the Russian capital. A world war can only result from this, and Tudor finds himself accidentally locked in a bank vault that will protect him from the holocaust, leaving him as one of the few people to survive it, and thus rule it. Green Lantern’s ring is bollixed by the magic, but Diana Prince becomes Wonder Woman, snags the bombs in her lasso, and muffles their explosion with its magic power. Afterward, GL’s ring functions normally and he breaks Tudor out of the bank vault, having learned of his predicament in the course of the adventure. Green Lantern files his report of the case with the JLA, recommending that Wonder Woman be reinstated.

    Fail safe 0

    A mildly entertaining issue in Diana's continuing efforts to prove herself to the Justice League members, here Hal Jordan.  Through an inadvertently effective wish granting device Wonder Woman must stop a nuclear attack on Moscow, which may or may no have had references to Doctor Strangelove and Fail Safe.  Even if it wasn't a direct copy the moments were very similar.  Despite some golden age type of use from her lasso, the action was still fun.  Not as good though was the reprinted golden age ...
