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


As Batman returns to the JLA following his inability to solve the Riddler’s riddles (which the Riddler is also confounded as well), things get worse: The Moon is made of Green Cheese and Vishnu sleeps soundly but could at any moment open his eyes and effectively end all of existence.

The JLA mobilize outside of Jarhanpur, where all of this began, only to discover that the perception ripple is moving through history. More recent misconceptions are being manifested and working their way further into the past. Eventually the ripple will manifest into individual perceptions of the world and the results will no doubt be catastrophic. This is all a result of Wonder Woman betraying her ideals and shattering the Lasso of Truth which she bears.

Inside Jarhanpur, Wonder Woman tries to save the world by reclaiming the young heir to Rama Khan whom she left behind and betrayed her ideals for. The Rama Khan is not willing to give up his heir, he cares nothing for the outside world. Jarhanpur is all that matters to him. Suddenly the JLA arrives as defined by the public at large, burst into the royal palace to even the odds. Superman is practically a God, Batman is nothing more then a shadow, an urban legend, Plastic man is a toy, Martian Manhunter is in his true Martian form, and Green Lantern is Hal Jordan.

After a quick explanation Wonder Woman is told she must take the boy to repair the truth. However, the Rama Khan is not so willing to give him up. Wonder Woman is afraid to make the wrong decision once again and apologizes to the living spirit of Jarhanpur. She begs for forgiveness and a second chance to make the right decision. Jarhanpur forgives, but the Rama Khan does not.

The Rama Khan refuses to believe Jarhanpur would forgive an infidel such as Wonder Woman. His disbelief sets off the same terrible truth ripple within the walls of Jarhanpur. The city crumbles. The JLA move quickly and manage to save the thousands of citizens. The Rama Khan would appear to be the only causality.

Thousands of Jarhanpur citizens are displaced, and a culture is lost. Wonder Woman returns the boy to his mother until such a time as he can make a decision for himself about his future.
