Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3

"Blackest Night: Wonder Woman" #3 begins the wrap up of the "Blackest Night" tie-in miniseries. In other words, this is more "expanded story" than you'd get on the newly deputized Star Sapphire – Wonder Woman.

Tony Stark does a great job trying to convince himself (and us) that he is Iron Man. Unfortunately, he never dons the armor in this issue. That doesn't mean this is a lost cause though.
