Wonder Woman had an Amazon Guardian Angel in her depowered years?

From Brave and the Bold 105, 1973, page 13. Diana's going to help Bruce on a case and an angel appears to her. This is the only time I know of that it happened, did the angel ever show up in her regular title?

Not in pre-Crisis WW, as far as I can recall, but I don't have a memory like the Commander for this sort of detail.

Sounds to me like a product of Bob Haney's non-canonical creativity.

Right you are, Mr. Semmens.  The Amazon guardian angel came from Haney's making-stuff-up-is-easier-than-looking-it-up approach to continuity and story-telling.  The angel never appeared in any other Wonder Woman tale.

I thought it was something like that.

The Amazon Guardian Angel actually saves Diana's life! Maybe Haney wanted a super-powerful person in the story as Diana was in her Jumpsuit phase. Or since it was Wonder Woman, he wanted an Amazon presence.

I'm sorry but I can't resist.

Why is the Amazon Guardian calling Diana a Ho'?

You didn't really believe somebody that followed Aphrodite had nothing to do with men, did you?

Maybe the angel came from the same place Mopee did?

A quick look through my scans tells me that Batman and the non-powered Wonder Woman teamed up at least twice and both times Diana was in peril on the cover. Later when she got her powers back and they teamed up in Brave and the Bold 131 1976 they were both in peril but she was fighting back and later they were both scared. So while she was in depowered mode she was sort of a damsel in distress for the covers and while she had her powers she was more of an equal partner?

"Forget it, Jake. It's Haneytown."

The non-powered Wonder Woman was a damsel in distress? That explains why Gloria Steinem pushed so hard for Diana to get her powers back. I vaguely remember seeing reprints of Wonder Woman during her Diana Rigg period and wondering why she didn't look anything like that in her own comic. She lost her powers before my time so that white suit was the first I saw of her.
