    In this issue, Wonder Woman's reputation is ruined. She is now seen a cold-blooded murderer. Everything she has done to gain the good side has now disappeared in oblivion. Her instant killing of Maxwell Lord will now have consequences and will affect her for the rest of her life. This issue ties in with the Infinite Crisis and some of DC heroes will not make it. Will one of the casulties be Wonder Woman?

    Io recovers from Ares' attack is told that the Amazon Oracle, Callisto, has seen the death of the Amazons. Artemis and Phillipus to build a weapon to defend themselves but Io refuses. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman tells Athena that she will turn herself in for the murder of Maxwell Lord. She also tells them that Jonah McCarthy was working for Lord all along. Suddenly Wonder Woman is attacked by three OMACs. Wonder Woman manages to get rid of two, and finish off the third one in a safer location.

There, she is given a strange reaction when she sees the TV where the murder of Lord has been broadcasted across the world. Big Brother has not been able to kill her body... and yet kills her name.
