And you thought modern supervillain origin stories were nuts? Check out the Cheetah, aka Priscilla Rich, a socialite and general all-around nutcase whose criminal inspiration was a split personality that manifested itself when Wonder Woman upstaged her at a charity event. Her alter ego, the Cheetah, appears as a hallucination in a damaged full-length mirror, causing the already unstable Rich to go full-on bugnuts, dress in a leopard-print leotard, and turn traitor, selling military secrets to the Axis. Told with William Moulton Marston's usual propulsive prose and illustrated by H.G. Peter's florid, hyper-surreal style, this is a neglected classic of the Golden Age, the kind of story that burned into young readers' brains and refused to let go. Later writers and artists would try to rework and re-imagine the Cheetah's origin, leaning into more mystic and fantastic realms, but the sheer unadulterated lunacy of this early gem is mighty hard to top.


Most early Wonder Woman issues fell victim to wartime paper drives, spotty distribution, and neglect from boy comic hoarders who didn't like icky girl books (and man, were they wrong). Thus, this comic book is incredibly rare, maybe in the top-five-rarest Golden Age DC keys -- there are barely 50 copies on the census, and if more than 100 to 125 copies are in existence, we'd be shocked. When copies do surface, throw out the price guide.
