Synopsis for "Truth is Stranger"

Seeing Wonder Woman lying dead in a crystal casket, Flash and Green Lantern surmise that, like in the fairy tales, a kiss could wake her. They argue, neither wanting to do it, but are fortunately intervene by Aquaman, a genuine handsome (former) prince, who is able to rouse her. They and Superman then go in search of Martian Manhunter and Plastic Man. Rescuing them from the flames of the witch's oven, they then encounter Batman, who has found the story book which the Queen of Fables came from. He opens it, and the members of the JLA are sucked in. Here they learn from a huntsman that the wicked queen and Snow White are real people, but that Snow White erased them from history into the stuff of fiction in an act of atonement for the horror which had been wrought due to the Queen's jealousy of her. But trapped in the book, the Queen was able to grow more powerful, drawing on myths, legends and fictions from across the world, hence the League seeing a variety of monsters abroad in New York.

While the League are being educated, the Queen decimates Themyscira, Wonder Woman's home, and takes over the Wonder Dome in Washington, D.C.. The JLA thanks the huntsman and emerge from the book, determined to fight the Queen, but are immediately attacked by a swarm of demons.
