Wonder Woman figures it’s the freed slave girl causing problems. She heads to the air field to go find her. She is surprised when she finds her plane gone. She is told a slave girl without chains and a small child were in it. Wonder Woman puts two and two together about Mavis. She borrows a different plane. It’s not as fast as hers. She gets back to America but finds no trace. She goes to the Colonel for help. He does a nationwide dragnet but gets no results. A report comes in that the Atlantic fleet is being bombed by an invisible plane. It’s damaged three battleships. Diana asks Steve to take her up in his plane.

Suddenly, the nose of the plane is gone, Steve has fallen out and has to use a parachute. She manages to get out of the plane to see her plane being used to drop the bombs. She manages to jump onto her plane. Mavis is not happy. Wonder Woman asks about Paula’s daughter. Mavis tells her she will have to surrender if she wants to save Gerta. She takes Wonder Woman to a cave. Gerta is brought out and is ok. She chains Wonder Woman the same way Paula did to make her helpless. Mavis takes her back to the plane. She ties Wonder Woman to bomb that she is going to drop on a battleship. She then starts to tie the child to bomb too. Wonder Woman begs her to spare Gerta. She decides to return her to Paula on Reform Island but to drop Gerta from a plane at Paula’s feet. Wonder Woman tries to chew through Gerta’s bonds. Once Gerta is free, she gets a file out of the emergency kit. Gerta and Wonder Woman sing to cover the sounds of her filing through the chains. Mavis doesn’t like it and pulls the lever for the bomb hatch she put in the plane to drop the bomb. Gerta rolls away and stays on the plane while Wonder Woman falls out. Aphrodite comes to Wonder Woman’s aid. She tells her to grab the plans aerial with her teeth. She thanks Aphrodite and unties the bomb from her ankles. Wonder Woman tries to summon to the last of her strength to break the weakened chains around her wrists and succeeds. Her full strength returns. The bomb explodes and Mavis starts to gloat until she finds Wonder Woman standing behind her. Wonder Woman captures Mavis again. Then heads off to Reform Island with Mavis and Gerta. Paula is overjoyed to have her daughter back. Wonder Woman delivers Mavis to Mala for training and informs her that she is her responsibility. Wonder Woman has communicated with Steve and Etta via the mental radio and they go to the Nazi hideout. Etta decides to go in and flush them out for Steve. It works.
