Wonder Woman’s Lesson To Bullies, 1943.
It’s Wonder Woman Wednesday!
When workers at factories across the United States fall victim to a deadly laughing disease (no, it’s not the Joker), Steve and Diana investigate in order to save America’s labor force and protect production during wartime. But when Etta and the Holliday Girls pose as workers to discover the truth, they learn that the culprits are germ-infested uniforms.
Factory manager Cyrus Knowles and assistant Eileen are revealed as Nazi imposters, but Wonder Woman has already befriended the real Eileen’s brother, would-be bully Mugsy McGrew, who helps the Amazon smash the Axis plot and get his down-and-out dad a job.
