Three panels from Sensation Comics #29, 1944. Mala is the Amazon in charge of the Amazon prison. You can imagine what Amazon prisons are like by now, I expect. Here's how Mala fares in Man's World:


First, a cab driver is rude to her.

She gets arrested for this stunt, though she does break the handcuffs with her Amazon strength.

Anyway, bad guys capture her and Wonder Woman:



Remember that the next time you have two Amazons in captivity, guys: if you chain them together, they won't be able to break them!

Boss: "Weld 'em together-- if one girl moves, she'll move the other-- ha ha! Then for some fun!"

Thug *thinking* "'If one girl moves, she'll move the other?' What the hell is THAT supposed to mean? No, don't say anything; just smile and nod, smile and nod." *sigh* "This sure ain't what I had in mind when I went to weldin' school."

I think she probably means something like 'if one of them tries to escape, she'll have to take the other one with her, which will make a noise, so then we plug 'em'. It's the same general theory that's behind a chain-gang.

Probably. Just seems like a really awkward way of saying that, to me.

Also it seems to me that two women chained together won't make very much more noise than one women in chains. As opposed to an entire chain gang, anyway.

But they're chaining together their ankles as well, aren't they? It's a bit difficult to move in leg shackles without them clanking and clinking together.

Can we get this wonder woman back please?

Absolutely not.

She's silly, cracked-out, whimsical, fundamentally happy and has a measurably positive impact on the world around her. Do you know what happens to characters like that in modern comics? This happens (http://i31.tinypic.com/oiawyo.jpg). Is that really what you want for Wonder Woman?

One has to take that chance, though - it's that or simply surrender. Never give up! Never surrender!
