This issue is especially significant because it was the launch of the Silver Age Wonder Woman. The degree to which the reboot worked can be debated, but Kanigher's editorial intent was that this be the point where the "new" Wonder Woman arrived.

Interestingly, this means that Harry G. Peter, Wonder Woman's original artist, is a useful guide for determining whether a story features the Golden or Silver Age Wonder Woman. Since he retired with issue #97, one can say that if an issue features original work by Peter, it is describing an event that happened to the Golden Age Wonder Woman. And though not always true of the DCU, in Wonder Woman's case, at least, every Golden Age story happened on Earth-2.

Wonder Woman (02) appears only as Orana.
