This three part story features Wonder Woman as the main character.


Some very odd things are happening – hardened criminals are being released on their word that they “didn’t do it”, among them is Killer Croc; and Perry White publishes a story by Lois Lane that has no facts to back it up; and the Atom is dumbfounded by simple addition problems that won’t add up correctly.

Wonder Woman searches the ethereal realms of Olympus in search of the solution to the universal truth conundrum. She goes alone telling her teammate J’onn that his aide is unneeded. She carries with her a cold iron chain in place of her now torn golden Lasso of Truth. Wonder Woman seeks out the Fates, the weavers of all life, to repair her lasso and fix the damage caused by what she believes to be the lies of the Rama Khan. When she reaches the Fates, Diana discovers they have been torn apart limb from limb and thousands of other worldly insects crawl about.

Meanwhile in Jarhanpur the Rama Khan sits with his heir as a royal magistrate reads off a list of calamities affecting the world now that truths no longer have any rhyme or reason behind them. The Rama Khan feels little pity for the outside world as he reaffirms Jarhanpur’s safety.

Back at the Watchtower, the Atom explains that simple numbers have stopped making sense. Just then Plastic Man busts in almost in tears, revealing himself that he cannot lie. The Atom believes that subjectivity in application is breaking down. A quick glance out a Watchtower window affirms this fear.

Back at the temple of the Fates, Wonder Woman gives it her all to save the Fates and defeat the insect horde. But the Fates reveal that this is all actually Diana’s fault. Her refusal to believe the lasso and her unwillingness to accept the truth have caused chaos and lies to be unleashed onto the world. Before the horror can set in Diana is telepathically called by J’onn J’onzz.

At the edge of the world, literally, ships and boats are falling over the edge into nothingness. The world has become flat!
