Eric Luke creates a new, deadly adversary for Diana in the form of Devastation, with powers equal and opposite to everything Wonder Woman possesses. Not since the “Mayfly” story line back in issue 79 had Wonder Woman actually been struck by a bullet – because one of Diana’s key skills is to protect herself using her bracelets using her incredible reflexes and speed of movement. In this issue though, Devastation’s speed proves too great and she manages to shoot the Amazon Princess in the stomach at point blank range, critically injuring her!

Synopsis

A new villainess named Devastation causes anarchy in a small mid-western U.S. town to lure Wonder Woman. When Diana arrives to put a stop to things, she more than meets her match as a violent fight ensures The Amazon Princess is critically injured by a bullet and is only saved from a second fatal shot by the Wonder Dome, which shields her and whisks her away to safety.
