Wilbur Wolfingham, thwarts the latest scheme of the Prankster, unravels the "Mother Goose Crimes," battles the magically powered imp from the fifth dimension, Mr. Mxyztplk, and battles the mythical Atlas!

In these tales from the 1990s written and illustrated by John Byrne, Wonder Woman is gravely wounded -- and to save her life, Zeus transforms her from an Amazon to the goddess of truth. And with no one to play the role of Wonder Woman, Diana's own mother, Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons, becomes the new Wonder Woman. After a chance encounter with Jay Garrick, the Golden Age Flash, Hippolyta journeys back to the 1940s to help the Justice Society of America free Europe from Nazi oppression. And as John Byrne's run on Wonder Woman comes to an end, Diana reassumes the mantle of Wonder Woman just in time to help Donna Troy, better known as Wonder Girl, come to grips with the truth of her identity.
