James Raiz provides the interior artwork while J.G. Jones returns to cover art duties. Personally, I feel this is not one of Jones’ best covers and is certainly not the most flattering depiction of Diana he has produced to say the least!

Synopsis

Diana is forced to prove herself by her Justice League colleagues. Her Amazon skills help her more than compensate for her blindness and she gives her team mates a real work over, although she knows that all of them bar Batman are holding back. She even manages to deflect a bullet fired at her from behind by Superman as part of the test.
As the League vote on whether she is fit to remain in their ranks, she has to leave to attend the memorial service of Martin Garibaldi.
Meanwhile on Olympus the Goddesses, lead by Athena, make a coup attempt to dethrone Zeus, who in turn challenges them to defeat his guardian, the hundred headed monster Briareos! Diana is duly summoned by Athena to take up that challenge!
