Peril Themes: Superheroine Gassed!

I’m going to look at various themes in comic books and TV shows all the way through to fan videos. Sometimes I’ll look at powers and other times I’ll look at peril or defeat. The scene below is from the 1970’s Wonder Woman TV show. It depicts a gassing, which appears to be very popular amongst fans of peril:

The editing always makes me chuckle a bit from the shot of the guy turning it on her to her rather shocked face centre screen. Also if it could stop a herd of elephants if sprayed directly in the face, surely being in the same room after spraying it at all would make you a bit… well, woozy? Not these guys. I wonder if that guy was right that she can’t bother them anymore?
