With the war effort in full swing, every comic book superhero from Captain America to Superman was pitching in to further the cause of U.S. interests. Wonder Woman especially was not sitting out the wave. The star-spangled Amazon had been growing in popularity, so naturally Superman-DC gave her her own title.
