Colonel Steve Trevor was an Air Force pilot and love interest of Wonder Woman.

Throughout his career he had been an astronaut in the United States military and a secret-agent for the covert organization S.O.S. (Spy-on-Spy). During the time he was an agent, he went by the alias Steve Howard.’

A few years after that, Steve worked with the Major Diana Prince at the United States Military Intelligence Headquarters.

She often referred to him as 'hot shot.' He called her 'angel'.

Background Information

In the parallel universe of Earth-One, we do not know much about Steve Trevor’s background before he met Princess Diana.

Reporting to General Darnell at Military Intelligence

In the late 1950’s, during the early part of the Vietnam War,[2] Steve Trevor is already a Colonel and part of Military Intelligence.[3]

As fate would have it, Colonel Trevor’s plane explodes as it flies over Paradise Island forcing him to eject. His chute won’t open and so he plunges straight for the ground. He is caught in mid-air by Princess Diana who not only wants to save the strange man, protect her Amazon sisters from the curse of Athena’s law (if a man’s foot touches their Island they will lose all their powers). Wonder Woman would use her breath to blow air into his parachute and float them to safety on the mainland. On the mainland, the pilot introduces himself as Colonel Steve Trevor, part of Military Intelligence. Wonder Woman explains to him that she is sent as representative of the Amazons to America to aid the cause of justice. He finds such a feat impossible [in the Earth-1A universe, this would have to take place in mid 1960].[4] He tells her that he was on a secret mission for the government, but someone must have sabotaged his plane. She eventually drops Steve off at hospital and then goes out to explore the city.[5] [NOTE: Diana is still a teenager (in body only, not mind) at this point (perhaps 16 or 17) and would begin to age in man's world, losing her immortality].

It’s not long before Wonder Woman returns to the hospital to check on Steve Trevor. She meets a young army nurse crying on the front steps. The nurse looks up to see the famous Amazon she has heard so much about. She tells Wonder Woman that her name is Diana Prince, and that she was planning to get married the following week, but her fiancé, Dan was just transferred to South America. She is so sad, because she doesn’t have the money to join him. Soon the princess is able to convince the young lady to sell her identity to the Amazon princess, in exchange for being able to fly to South America and be with the man she loves. Wonder Woman then assumes the identity of the Diana Prince and is soon at the side of Steve Trevor.[6] [NOTE: Ever since then, Diana Prince White has known Wonder Woman's secret, but has told no one.]

Settling into her new secret identity, Lieutenant ‘Diana Prince,’ nurse, works at a local Army hospital where her former counterpart worked. In this ‘secret identity,’ Diana acted as nursemaid to Steve who was a patient in much need of rest after his ordeal over Paradise Island. Before his discharge, she decides to change back to her Wonder Woman guise, checking on the man ‘who stole her heart from the moment they met.’ It is then, that she meets General Darnell, Steve’s superior at Military Intelligence in the capitol city.[7] Instead of thanking her for saving Steve’s life or being pleasant, he berates her saying that the Army and the Amazons (meaning women) don’t mix as they’re a liability in battle. When the General leaves, Wonder Woman looks at Steve and is sadden wondering why he doesn’t like her. Steve smiles, calls her angel and instead of responding, talks about marrying her.[8]

Shortly after this, nurse Lt. Diana and her convalescing patient Colonel Trevor are in military attire, taking a pleasant Sunday afternoon walk at the local Zoo. It is here that they meet, for the first time Giganta the Gorilla and witness how a simple gorilla, became sentient.[9]

Diana, while working at the local army hospital, pulls double duty, also working as Wonder Woman with Military Intelligence.[10] On one notable occasion, Wonder Woman is watching Steve perform aerial stunts. Back on the ground Steve he asks her to marry him – again! Wonder Woman respectfully declines, telling him that she must focus on her duty to fight evil and until she is no longer needed for that job. Steve tells her that all he can think about is her and that he could pick her out in a crowd no matter what. Taking the challenge, she tells him that within the next 24 hours, if he can find her three times in public, she will marry him. So she puts on a pair of glasses and applies for a secretary's position at ‘Military Intelligence’ that would report directly to Col. Trevor. She passes the gauntlet to get the position and is hired by Gen. Darnell. Sure enough, Steve doesn't recognize her. Diana then realizes that this is a perfect secret identity and will keep her aware of villainous schemes that would need her attention.[11] [NOTE: This implies that she gave up her job at the local hospital.]

While working together at Military Intelligence, reporting to Gen. Darnell, Lt. Diana and Col. Trevor would have many adventures. The two are together when they meet the Cheetah, who would turn out to be one Wonder Woman’s greatest adversaries.[12] Wonder Woman is seen a close friend of Lt. Diana’s and is seen frequently in Diana’s office. Together with Steve, Wonder Woman solves many crimes deemed a threat to national security, tasked to them by Gen. Darnell. They also go out together on several dates, all the while Steve is unaware that she is also Lt. Diana.[13] During this time-period, established heroine, Wonder Woman, along with some new heroes work together to thwart an Appellaxian invasion. After their success, they decide to formally work together and thus the Justice League of America was born![14] The initial Justice League lineup included seven of the Leagues most prominent members: Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman. At that time, the Justice League operated from a secret cave, located outside of the small town of Happy Harbor, Rhode Island. Wonder Woman balances her new duties as a founding member of the JLA, with her day job at ‘Military Intelligence.’ She still worked with Col. Trevor as Lt. Diana and taking missions from Gen. Darnell as Wonder Woman, which usually involved Col. Trevor.[15] Diana is starting to have misgivings about her relationship with Steve. He proposes to Wonder Woman, yet again. She refuses, thinking to herself, if he truly loved he’d love me both – as Wonder Woman and Diana Prince! She contemplates telling Steve about her secret identity, but decides against it.[16]

The Death of Steve Trevor

In a ruse, orchestrated by General Darnell, Col. Trevor poses as a double agent, so he could get in contact with the criminal organization headed by the mysterious Doctor Cyber. Meanwhile, Diana is given an ultimatum by her Queen mother – choose between departing with her Amazon sisters (for a period of rejuvenation) or give up her powers to remain in Man’s World. Diana chooses to stay. Back on the mainland, having heard of Steve’s plight, Diana searches for Steve, but is unable to locate him. No longer having powers, she decides to resign her Army commission at the ‘Military Intelligence Agency’ [this is NOT mentioned in the story], and takes a leave of absence from the JLA,[17] to seek civilian life. Soon she is reunited with Steve who is in a coma in the hospital. Distraught, but undeterred, she vows to find who did this to Steve.[18] As Steve recovers in the hospital over the next few weeks, Diana hears that Steve has been kidnapped. With a few new associates, she is able to track him down at the castle hideout of Dr. Cyber. There they discover Steve, who barely has time to warn them of a trap before he is machine-gunned in the back, and dies, leaving Diana devastated.[19]

The Resurrection of Steve Trevor – Now a Secret Agent!

By a strange twist of fate, a depressed Diana is at Paradise Island. Her new job at the U.N. hasn’t eased her depression. And ever since her recent blow to the head, recent recovery from amnesia, and restoration of powers, she knows that something from her memory is missing.[20] While she is on her home-island, men start dropping from the sky in full body suits that prevent their faces from being seen. Diana springs into action and defeats to strangely dressed men. Having only one opponent left, she renders him incapacitated and removes his mask, only to discover that it is Steve Trevor. As Diana appears to be stunned, her mother and the goddess Aphrodite approach and tell her that the whole invasion was a way to test to Diana’s skill and wisdom. They say she passed. Aphrodite turns to Steve and is about to make him disappear, but Diana, in tears asks that he be allowed to stay. The goddess consents. Her mother looks to her and says that much has change. The American has seen much – he knows your double-identity. Diana doesn’t care.[21] Unbeknownst to both Diana and her mother, Aphrodite was only able to bring Steve back by joining the ‘life-force’ of her son, the god Eros (aka Cupid) to Steve’s essence.[22]

Diana takes Steve back to New York and helps him to check into a hotel. He is now calling Diana, ‘Di.’ They part ways for a short time and Diana thinks to herself that Steve is very much the same, yet very different. Later, back at Diana’s apartment, the two are watching the news. Steve and Diana share a tender moment. Steve says that whoever Steve becomes, he wants to go on loving her.[23]

Later, Steve feels alone and is struggling to settle in to 1976. He feels slightly inadequate because he was once a top intelligence agent, a super-spy and now he feels like Diana is treating him like a helpless waif. He decides to act rashly and busts in to the front door of the ‘Mission HQ,’ to the United States Mission to the United Nations across the street from the United Nations Headquarters. He speaks with Mr. Sullivan, chief operative of Spy-on-Spy (aka S.O.S.),[24] who sends him on a trial mission. This mission crosses paths with Wonder Woman, who is already embroiled in a scheme by a tycoon villain who wishes to extract the charisma of others and inject it into himself and his android duplicates. When they are done, they go back to Mr. Sullivan’s office at the Mission HQ, where Wonder Woman is able to give Steve her recommendation by her mere presence. Steve identifies himself as "Steve Howard." Mr. Sullivan explains that they don’t use firearms or muscle and that they answer directly to the President of the United States.[25]

As Steve settles into his new job, Diana, still at the U.N., has been reassigned from the ‘Crisis Bureau’ to the ‘Special Services Department’. She is little upset Steve, who changed his appearance slightly, so as not to draw suspicion to himself, when she was hoping things would stay the same.[26]

On the parallel universe of Earth-1A, S.O.S. Agent, ‘Steve Howard’ calls Diana at her U.N. office on an urgent matter. He has received a tip that one of the ‘heads of state’[27] that will be attending the U.N. Conference on the following day will be assassinated. He doesn’t know who is behind it yet. Most are guarded well, but six we should watch carefully. They are: Prince Mark of Sardonia; King Vulko of Atlantis; Princess Evalina of Valdania, Prince Ali of Kaliph, Queen Astrid of Graustania and chief Solovar of Gorilla City. Diana knows that most of the JLA is busy, so she goes to the Hall of Justice in Gotham City to the SuperFriends for help. On hand to help are Batman, Robin, Superman, Aquaman, the Wonder Twins (Zan and Jayna) and Gleek. They find out who the assassin is and they call him the Kingslayer and learn that assassin's plan was to divert attention with the six attacks from his real plan – kill over 100 of the world’s leaders at U.N. Conference! After they foil the plot, they learn that the Kingslayer was hired by mysterious benefactor.[28]

Under the direction of the U.N., Wonder Woman teams up with S.O.S Agent, ‘Steve Howard’ to take down S.C.Y.T.H.E., a terrorist organization seeking to force America to free its captive leader.[29]

It’s morning at the most famous building looking over Manhattan's East River. Agent Steve 'Howard' (Trevor in disguise) and Captain Diana Prince are discussing an assassination of a U.N. Ambassador. He was killed by a mysterious plant that was found on his plate. Plus a mystery woman at the function, vanished right after the ambassador keeled over. As they discuss, a woman is heard screaming from the Security Chamber. Diana does a quick change as they head over to see what is happening. They find another an ambassador who soon dies and the mysterious plant by his side. After a third murder, it is revealed that the one who planned the nefarious plot is Poison Ivy. As Wonder Woman catches up Ivy, she is told she has taken steps to ensure Steve Howard's death. At that, the heroine breaks out and heads after Steve.[30] As Wonder Woman reaches Steve, she learns that it’s actually her that is poisoned, so she refrains from touching him until she can be treated. Soon however, Wonder Woman engages Ivy once again only to have her fall over a cliff, down a waterfall to her apparent death.[31]

Steve Dies ... Again

On one afternoon, Diana and Steve ‘Howard’ are walking to work, when Lt. Truman, believing that Steve Trevor and Steve Howard are the same man, kidnaps Steve. He is curious because the body of Steve Trevor was never found after he was killed on a mission.[32] Diana, furious, storms into the office of her boss, Morgan Tracy demanding answers. Diana believes he must know something, because a U.N. employee isn’t just abducted on the street in broad daylight. She wants to know where he is and why they are investigating him. He caves and says that the military requested that they handle this, because Steve 'Howard' could be a threat to national security (NOTE: Morgan is still unaware that Trevor and Howard are the same man). Diana is yelling at him now, saying that he either doesn’t have the authority or the guts to stand up to these people. She storms out of the office, yelling that she can’t work for a man that doesn’t support his employees and quits! Before she left she was able to steal the file of Steve Trevor, which had the location of his interrogation. Meanwhile, it turns out that Steve’s kidnapping was orchestrated by Major Bradley. He believes that Steve’s miraculous return may have to do with mystical elements and may contain the key to reanimating the corpse of the demonic Dark Commander. Wonder Woman eventually arrives. As she engages the Dark Commander, it is revealed that he was psychically connected to Steve, draining his lifeforce. As the link is severed, the Dark Commander disappears. Wonder Woman cradles Steve who dies in her arms again. She screams out ‘not again’! [33]

The only man the mighty Amazon has ever loved is dead. She races to the plaza of the U.N. and demands to see Morgan Tracy (chief of U.N. security). She lays the deceased body of Steve down in front of Morgan, who is shocked to see that it’s Steve Trevor. He now realizes that Trevor and Howard were the same man. He asks how he died. The Amazon princess, unable to hide her tears tells Morgan that he was on a secret mission and that the details of his death will be provided by those officials who caused his death. With that she takes to the sky’s angrily shouting back at Morgan that she wants nothing to do with him. Out of love and rage, Diana summons Aphrodite, and begs her patron Goddess to restore her love to life, as she did once before. This time, however, Aphrodite refuses. Undeterred, Wonder Woman says that she will take matters into her own hands and uses her magic lasso to create a portal into the Land of the Dead (where all departed souls must pass), which is ruled by Pluto. She demands to see Steve, but he laughs and sends his minions to subdue her. Wonder Woman offers her soul for Steve Trevor's life but Pluto refuses. When she eventually refuses to even put up a fight, he angrily says that he cannot bargain with her, as he doesn't have Trevor's soul. Wonder Woman realizes that Aphrodite tricked her into coming to the underworld. Now her mortal soul is in jeopardy. With a Herculean effort, and some timely guidance from Trevor's spirit, the soul of Wonder Woman escapes the underworld's hold on her, returning through the gateway to re-unite with her mortal body. Once back, Wonder Woman learns from Aphrodite that Zeus has taken Steve's soul and put it among the stars. Wonder Woman resigns herself to Steve's fate, knowing his love will be with her forever.[34]

The Resurrection of Steve Trevor – Again! Business as Usual

Tragedy after tragedy, Diana has been struggling finding solace since Steve’s death – unable to love, restless with work in her secret identity. Her mother, Hippolyta sought to alleviate her daughter's trauma by entreating Aphrodite to remove Diana’s memories of Trevor. They both agree that this has been a blessing and curse for Diana and that she doesn’t deserve this. Aphrodite calls upon the Mists of Nepenthe to rise from the sea. Later, as fate demands (perhaps a cruel joke by the gods), a man crashes just off shore of Paradise Island. Diana rescues him. He identifies himself as Colonel ‘Steve Trevor’ and he captures her heart immediately.[35] After Princess Diana rescues the new Steve Trevor and heals him with the Purple Healing Ray, Queen Hippolyta asks Aphrodite where he came from. She responds that he is from the Earth of another dimension, and even she has no power to send him back there. Aphrodite extends the Mists of Nepenthe over the Earth, causing all people to forget the existence of the other Steve Trevor who died years ago. Once again, Diana competes against the Amazons for the right to go into Man's World, and wins the costume and title of Wonder Woman. Just before Wonder Woman returns with Steve to America, Hippolyta begs him, "Don't hurt her again," which mystifies Trevor.[36]

Working at the Pentagon. Air Force’s Special Intelligence Branch. Reporting to General Darnell

Steve begins (or perhaps resumes) his job in the ‘Special Assignment Branch’ / ‘Air Force’s Special Intelligence Branch’[37] at the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia.

Captain Diana Prince, fellow field intelligence officer, is his Adjutant (military officer acting as administration assistant to a senior officer). Gen Darnell is in charge of the operation. Diana of course orchestrated this position working with Steve by falsifying records.[38] In addition to Captain, now Major Diana Prince, Col. Steve’s associates were Major Keith Griggs, Lt. Lauren Haley and secretary Etta Candy.

[Exclusive to the Earth-1A Universe,] Diana and Col. Trevor, also worked at an Unnamed U.S. Military Base in the early eighties as an astronaut,[39] in conjunction with their time at the Pentagon. Also, in the early to mid-1980’s, Darkseid captured Steve Trevor, then impersonated him, in a plot against the Super Powers Team. In so doing, he was hoping to gain the affection of Wonder Woman.[40]

After an incident in which a USAF plane is destroyed by a mysterious force, both Steve Trevor and Major Keith Griggs make a dual test flight over the area in question. It turns out to be Green Lantern's old foe Dr. Polaris. Wonder Woman is called to action.[41] Polaris refuses to battle Wonder Woman, telling her he is only interested in Green Lantern. When she informs him that the Emerald Gladiator is on a space mission, Polaris blasts Trevor’s plane apart, and says that he will find a way to make Green Lantern come back and fight him. Then he vanishes with Major Griggs. Wonder Woman assumes that he has gone back to his polar fortress at the North Pole. With Steve costumed as a stand-in Green Lantern, Wonder Woman rescues Griggs and returns with him and Trevor to America.[42]

The last few months have been a struggle for Diana. She is plagued with wanting to tell Steve her secret identity. She finally decides on telling him, but he refuses to let her. He wants to keep the mystery. She also gave Steve the ability to control her robot plane.[43]

Eros (who had previously possessed Steve), Aphrodite’s son, out of some misguided love, begins to stalk princess Diana.[44] He stalks her at her home in Washington, D.C. and wonders how Steve, twice dead, rose again, while he laid at Hades’ Gate, trapped.[45] Meanwhile, Dr. Cyber disguised as Diana Prince, steals the launch codes for America’s nuclear missiles![46] After looking for the fake Diana, the real Diana returns to Washington, convinces Major Griggs that the "Diana" who stole the missile codes was really Dr. Cyber in disguise. Later, Wonder Woman breaks into Cyber’s stronghold, which Steve Trevor and Glitch (a space gremlin) have already infiltrated. Steve and Wonder Woman battle Cyber, who defeats them, but not before revealing that she once killed Steve Trevor. Wonder Woman ends up entangled in metal wires that heat up as she resists them, and Cyber says that soon Wonder Woman's body will be as scarred as Cyber's face.[47] Eros turns up (believing himself to be the original Steve Trevor) and helps free the mighty Amazon. Together along with Steve (parallel universe doppelgänger) the three continue to battle against Dr. Cyber.[48] On Paradise Island, they entreat the goddess Aphrodite, who tells them that the only way to bring Steve back to life, was to infuse his essence, with that of his sons. And that it was that life-force that stolen by the demonic Dark Commander, causing Steve to die a second time. So, when the Dark Commander was destroyed, Eros’ spirit was scattered to the winds. When it was restored, he was quite mad. So the goddess had him placed in twilight state, from which he recently awakened. Meanwhile, Eros has gone on a rampage nearly killing Steve – all in the name of love! As Wonder Woman battles Eros, the Queen takes Steve and places him under the Purple Healing Ray. Eros, seeing this tries to remove Steve from the ray and kill him but becomes frozen in the ray. The Amazons allow the ray to run its course and when it's done, it cures Eros' mind of his madness and restores to Steve Trevor all the memories of the Steve Trevor from Earth One. However, some things are still spotty – like the secret identity of Wonder Woman. The Queen is happy and entreats Diana to help her rebuild Paradise Island. Diana is still furious at her mother’s tampering and wants nothing to do with her. She tells her that she will rebuild it without her, for Paradise Island is not longer her home.[49]

Later, Diana Prince is walking home, upset that Steve doesn’t know her secret identity and hardly gives Diana a second thought – a non-entity as she put it.[50]

Latter Days and the Crisis on Infinite Earths

Soon the Crisis is upon them and they don't even realize it.

It is July 1985. All over the world the skies are showing signs of strange weather.

Senator Covington is threatening into Gen. Darnell with a Congressional Investigation for Wonder Woman’s illegal participation in missions on foreign soil. In the Pentagon, Major Griggs, Col. Trevor, Lt. Candy and Lt. Haley arrive for a meeting in Gen. Darnell’s office to discuss the Congressional Investigation. Lt. Prince arrives a little late. As she enters, Hermes appears. He is summoning the Princess of Paradise Island, who is needed by her Mother and that Zeus himself command her presents. Stunned, she immediately obeys and reveals herself as ‘Wonder Woman’! They prepare to depart, while her co-workers are in shock. Just then, the shadow demons appear. Hermes and Diana prepare for battle while Major Griggs sounds the alarm. Outside, the skies are red, but the weather is only a slight drizzle. With the Shadow Demons, Diana departs for Paradise Island. Lt. Candy reveals that the meeting for the Special Intelligence team involved listening to a tape. The Lieutenant leads them into the General’s office. The tape reveals that he has made poor decisions and that Col. Trevor is now in charge of the team.[51]

Later, an earthquake has occurred outside the Pentagon, producing craters. Col. Trevor has a rope trying to save Lt. Haley who is hanging on for dear life. She cries out that her hands have become bloody, right before she falls. As he stands there, half in shock Huckaby and Lt. Candy arrive and are saddened by the news. They ask if they have seen Wonder Woman and then she appears. They kiss, embrace, and declare their love for each other. Howard turns to Etta and declares the same. Trevor and Wonder Woman leave. Etta, says to Howard that she doesn’t think they’ll ever see them again. High above the earth, Trevor asks Wonder Woman what’s the plan of attack. She tells him that Hippolyta awaits her signal, which she’ll give once she has scouted out Olympus. In the meantime, the goddess Kore will try to enlist Atlalanta and her mortal Amazons from South America in their cause – to crush the force’s of Mars and the Anti-Monitor. In Olympus, Wonder Woman and Mars begin fighting one another and the armies of Kore begin to fight the undead. Steve ponders what Diana has told him about the war between the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor. As he does, he deduces that the Olympian gods have been imprisoned inside giant statues of themselves, and topples one to release Zeus, trapping Mars under the falling statuary. Kore journeys to the underworld, tells Hades that she still loves him, and gets him to withdraw his support from Mars and the Anti-Monitor. The zombie legions are withdrawn to the Underworld again. Zeus proclaims that the battle is won, but the war against the Anti-Monitor still goes on.[52]

Wonder Woman asks Steve to marry her, and he consents. With the blessing of Diana's mother, Zeus performs the ceremony, with all the Amazons in attendance. That night, Diana tells Steve of a dream she had, about both of them walking in the sunlight through a golden field, their child by their side. The two of them embrace and kiss.[53]

This is the last we see of Earth-One’s Steve Trevor before the Crisis is over.

Notes

  • It is unclear if the Earth-1A version of Steve Trevor is modeled after the Silver Age version or the Golden Age version. Contributors to this page assume it is the Silver Age version.
  • The Golden age version of Steve Trevor first appeared in All Star Comics, Vol. 1 #8; published in January, 1942[54] and created by William Moulton Marston.
  • The Silver age version of Steve Trevor first appeared in Wonder Woman, Vol. 1 #98; published in May, 1958[55] and was re-imagined by Robert Kanigher.
  • In pre-Crisis, Bronze Age retcon, Eros (the son of Aphrodite) was joined with the late Steve Trevor when Aphrodite resurrected him out of her love for Diana. This was revealed in Wonder Woman, #322 (December, 1984). This new identity was called ‘Steve Howard’. When Steve died the second time, Eros' essence was released and eventually reformed in his true form. Then, in another Bronze Age retcon, the Steve Trevor of an alternate Earth (Earth-270) emerged on Earth-One, crashed near Paradise Island, and took the first Steve's place in Wonder Woman's affections. This was revealed in Wonder Woman, #270 (August, 1980).
  • In the Earth-1A continuity, ‘Steve Howard’ (with his dyed dark hair) is seen alive and well waiting for his date Diana. This was seen in Super Friends, #22 (July 1, 1979). So it may be best to omit this Bronze Age retcon from the Earth-1A universe.


Trivia

  • When Diana laments in Wonder Woman, #226 (Oct. / Nov. 1976) over the changes in Steve, she asks where he came up with the name 'Steve Howard'. He tells her he was inspired by the British actor 'Trevor Howard.' See Trevor Howard at Wikipedia.

I chose this particular origin for two reasons: The first reason is that it is the only origin that did not borrow heavily from the Golden Age origin (being original) and secondly, because it was the actual first chronological depiction of the Earth-One Diana of Paradise Island. The other Silver Age/Bronze Age origins are found in: Wonder Woman, #105/2 (April 1959); Wonder Woman, #159 (January 1966) and the flashback portion of Wonder Woman, #223 (April/May 1976).

Giganta is shown to be sporting an update to her look, giving her waist-length blond hair and an even larger physical stature. E. Nelson Bridwell tried to tie into this Earth-One origin (and thus Earth-1A) by revealing it in the SuperFriends Comic issue #30 (March, 1980). This origin is also hinted at in the NBC TV Special, the Legends of the Superheroes episode The Challenge (1979). It is important to note that this issue, along with Wonder Woman issues #159 through issue 165 (with a final story in issue 168) are hard to place in any continuity. While done in a style consistent with Earth-Two, they don't fit into Earth-Two continuity well. The The Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium (2005) places these stories on Earth-Forty while the Essential Wonder Woman Encyclopedia (2010) places them on Earth-One. This means that these stories with slight variations occurred on all three Earths.
