Synopsis:
A kind of "bookend" of a sort to issue 172. Diana returns with her mother to the World War II era, disguised as Miss America. In the words of the introductory captions, Diana is "hoping against hope that she hasn't tempted the fates by altering the timestream in a desperate attempt to reclaim an ancient relic, a weapon of the gods..."

Concludes the story begun in #184.

Notes:
The question about this issue, for Wonder Woman scholars, is what to take away from it. Are we to believe, as the narrator captions tell us at the beginning of the story that this is an "altered" time line, and therefore it doesn't "count"? Or, do we trust Diana, returned to her proper time at the end of the story, when she says she was actively trying not to disturb anything. My guess is that it's the latter, and therfore everything we see of Hippolyta's life as the WW II-era Wonder Woman is "real".

That being the case, we notice a number of significant things almost immediately. First, Jimenez continues his professed love of the television series, giving us little "treats" from its first season. General Blackenship is here codified as a part of the DCU. The Etta Candy of the television series is likewise represented here, though she says nothing. Only our knowledge of the TV series would inform of us of why she gets the comics equivalent of a close-up. Also, we see many of the qualities of the Lynda Carter performance in Hippolyta. She is, much to her daughter's apparent surprise, a real part of the community in which she lives, trying, on a small scale, to make a difference in the lives of the people around her. This is clearly something a bit foreign to the Ambassador from Themyscira.

We also see a nod, here, to William Moulton Marston. By having Hippolyta the apparent roommate of the "real" Diana Prince--an Army Nurse from whom Wonder Woman I stole an identity--there's a glimmer of Wonder Woman vol. 1, #1.

Even more fun, perhaps, is the fact that Wildcat and she are shown to be in an honest-to-god physical relationship--and to know that Diana carries that knowledge back to the future with her, where she occasionally has to work alongside Wildcat.
