Comments

This six-issue limited series tied directly into the “Infinite Crisis” crossover event and built on the story line that originated in the Countdown to Infinite Crisis special. It also also the build up to events that took place in the “Sacrifice” Superman story arc that culminated in Wonder Woman having to take on a mind controlled Man of Steel. The fight resulted in Diana having to take the unprecedented step of killing Maxwell Lord in cold blood.

Synopsis

Wonder Woman has just killed Maxwell Lord (as depicted in Wonder Woman Volume 2 #219).

Upon Lord’s death the OMAC units begin initiating Scorched Earth protocol, killing everyone they come in contact with. Sasha Bordeaux and Jessica Midnight escape containment in castle Checkmate.

Guy Gardner and Booster Gold go visit Fire and she is already hard at work trying to determine who killed Beetle.

Batman is contacted by Brother Eye and told that Brother Eye is now completely autonomous and is responsible for the recent OMAC attacks.
