Synopsis

Diana Prince and Etta Candy invite Helen Alexandros to be their new roommate, unaware she's secretly the Silver Swan, an agent of Mars intent on killing Wonder Woman.

Notes

Gerry Conway receives special thanks as "technical advisor." Wonder Woman wears the new emblem she adopted in DC Comics Presents (DC, 1978 series) #41. Splash page is an homage to the splash page of TALES OF SUSPENSE (Marvel, 1959 series) #73, a Roy Thomas scripted story that marked Gene Colan's debut on the Iron Man feature. First appearance and origin of the Silver Swan [Helen Alexandros]. Helen is a descendant of both Mars, God of War, and Helen of Troy.
