Cartoon Network on “The Balance”: “Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl must put aside their feud and go to the depths of Tartarus when the evil sorcerer Felix Faust establishes domination over Hades (courtesy of The World’s Finest).”
Dwayne McDuffie on Wonder Woman in “The Balance”: “Wonder Woman uses her Lasso of Truth for the first time in the series. She didn’t get the power until this episode; we held off on it because it would have make a lot of stories too easy (courtesy of ToyFare Magazine).”
Dwayne McDuffie on Shayera Hol in “The Balance”: “Remember that Shayera was a spy, deeply conversant in Earth culture. She knows a lot more (at least broadly) about our various cultures than the average human does. Her mission and possibly life depended on this knowledge. FYI, there was a joke in that sequence, cut for time or lameness, where Wonder Woman asks her how she knows about angels. Shayera shrugged, explaining that she’d ‘read the book’ (courtesy of Toon Zone).”
