These are from Sensation Comics #10, 1942.

I'm going to spoil it for you right now and explain that the redhead's a spy. Steve's working her to find out what she's up to.

Yeah, I see dames doing that all the time.

For an Amazon, Wonder Woman can be awfully typically feminine sometimes.

Personally, I keep mine in the pantry.

And now a deus ex machina to the rescue: the welder is a girl! And a pretty one! She can chain my bracelets together any day!

I find the notion that Marston believes DC has no damaging effect on the human body as opposed to AC fascinating. I would have thought the current wars would have been over by 1942.

I understand that was a result of Edison's (who invented DC) feud with Tesla (who invented AC). One of the more bizarre results was an anti-AC ad against Tesla's company Westinghouse with a convict who was led to the electric chair yelling: "Don't Westinghouse me!" Meaning he would rather be killed by a chair with Edison's direct current.

Yes, that was what I meant by the Current Wars... :) I thought Edison's FUD about AC vs. DC would have been debunked by 1942, which was almost 60 years after...

I guess I somehow missed your second sentence. :(

Edison also persuaded the Humane Society to have a rogue elephant put down with AC-- and filmed it.

I suppose we should be glad this was a silent film. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkBU3aYsf0Q)

Thomas Edison was the inspiration for many GA mad scientists.

Is it me or is it horribly bizarre that so many of us would have had exactly the same thought on seeing the above panel?
Seriously, how many people _know_ about the current wars these days?

I heard about it on the History Channel

Hilarious, my comment was going to be about the current wars, too, or at least about some kid killing themselves thanks to Wondy.

Hail Tesla!

I love how the welder just hangs around the table in full gear, not even flipping up her mask.

I am vastly amused by Wondy's line about 'where you keep your Japs and Nazis'. The way she's posed, and the way she phrases the sentence, makes it look like she's dropping in for a social visit, and is just DYING for a certain popular type of cookie or something.'Oh, darling, I've been rushed off my feet all day - I'll tell you about it in a minute, but first, where do you keep your Japs and Nazis'? Ah, ain't political incorrectness grand...
Also - "Ye Gods and little fishballs!" I love Steve's neverending series of oddball exclamations.
