Cleopatra Comic: "The Curse of Cleopatra"

Synopsis for "The Curse of Cleopatra"

When Countess Draska Nishki comes to Lt. Diana Prince’s office and offers her services as a spy for hire, Diana rebuffs her, and is tossed around the room by the judo-trained spy. Later, Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor are witness to a “war” between two rival movie studios, each turning out a Cleopatra epic. Magnum Magnus of Magnus Pictures contacts them and asks them to play the parts of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, because the actor and actress who were originally essaying those parts have fallen into catatonia. A mummy-wrapped actress attributes their sleep-spell to a curse laid on the Egyptian queen by a rival. Wonder Woman has to forego her lasso while playing the part, and the mummy-wrapped actress, who is really Draska Nishki, steals it, encircles her with its loop, and forces her to try and wreck the movie set on behalf of Nishki’s employers, the rival movie studio. But when the giant statue in Wonder Woman’s hands threatens to crush the villainess, she lets go of the lasso. Wonder Woman rights the statue, takes the lasso back, and captures Draska Nishki with it.
