Synopsis

To retain their idealized forms forever, Captain Wonder and Silver Swan must kill Wonder Woman-- by sending her invisible jet on a crash course with the White House.

Notes

President and Nancy Reagan make a cameo. Steve Trevor's alternate universe origin from Wonder Woman (DC, 1942 series) #260 is retold; his recent illness is described as an unconscious struggle to return to that home universe. His desire to ultimately remain with Wonder Woman cures the condition.
