Green Arrow's actions in "Justice League: Cry for Justice" come to light here, and the reaction is just what you'd expect. After all, there wouldn't be much of a story otherwise, right?

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.

Blackest Night: JSA #1
