Abstract:

In "The Richest Man in the World" multi-millionaire Marshall Henshaw meets with Steve Trevor and a foreign prime minister to report that the Missile Systems Scramber (nicknamed "Missy") is ready for shipping. This is vitally important as the device has the ability to scramble signals from approaching missiles, forcing them to veer off target. It is an incredible offensive weapon. Unfortunately, no sooner does Hewshaw leave this meeting than he is kidnapped. The kidnappers gain the information they need about MISSY, and dump Henshaw's unconscious body into the woods somewhere, believing that he'll die from exposure. While they set a plan into motion in which they'll substitute a fake scrambler with the real thing, an orphan child named Barney finds Henshaw and helps him, saving the man's life in the process. The situation growing more desperate by the moment, Wonder Woman steps in and does what she can to set things right again. In the end, MISSY is delivered to the prime minister and Barney finds himself with a new adopted father. Things aren't quite so soft and fuzz in "A Date with Doomsday," when a biological "slime" that would kill thousands if it should become airborne is stolen. Its creator, Dr. Roberts, is desperately attempting to find an antidote, but it is imperative that Wonder Woman find the sample before it is used by Ward Selkirk in a move against the White House and, in turn, the people of Washingotn D.C. The task is made more challenging when it's revealed that Selkirk has devised a means of developing face and hand masks of anyone he chooses, and it is by this method that he stole the sample in the first place and is ultimately able to steal the antidote as well, giving him complete power. It all comes down to a final few desperate seconds as Wonder Woman attempts to stop Selkirk from achieving his deadly goals.
