    The Day Time Broke Loose! last edited by trickled on 09/02/22 10:46PM View full history

    Green Arrow is the latest Justice League monitor over Wonder Woman, and he trails her in the U.N. Building as Oliver Queen only to see her meeting with--Green Arrow! The phony GA is really the Duke of Deception, who confuses Diana by referring to her as Supergirl and then leaving. All over the building, delegates and officials are confused by Deception’s illusions. Wonder Woman finds the Duke and attempts to lasso him, only to learn that the “Duke” she roped is an illusion and the real Deception now has her pent in the magic lasso. However, Wonder Woman penetrates Deception’s illusions, breaks free, makes the Duke unsure of himself, and topples his power. Trapping him with the magic lasso, Wonder Woman makes him confess that he hoped to drive the U.N. delegates mad and plunge the world into war, thus making Mars, god of War, bow to him. Green Arrow, however, has been affected by the Duke’s deceptions, and requires some hypnosis by Batman to set him straight.
