What a gas

Chemical weapons were first used in World War I, and testing gas masks was part of making sure soldiers could survive the deadly effects. This gas, however, looks as though it can destroy even the most advanced masks at the time.

Kaboom!

Clearly, the Germans have weapons the American troops will have a devil of a time competing with, unless they can find a secret weapon of their own.

Can Queen Hippolyta be convinced?

The queen would rather stay out of the war that doesn't concern her or her subjects. She has no time for men and their fight against each other.
