Appearing in "Unhappily Ever After"
Synopsis for "Unhappily Ever After"
The stuff of nightmares comes to life across America, as fiction, including its horrors and killers, becomes reality. The JLA battle against the Queen of Fables' creatures in New York until J'onn spots the Queen's current location. He, Wonder Woman, Superman, Plastic Man and Aquaman take the fight directly to her...in Wonder Woman's wonder dome, repositioned as a castle in the sky. Meanwhile, Green Lantern continues to rescue civilians in New York and Flash runs away with the Queen of Fables' book, which he must keep out of her goblins' hands.
Wonder Woman plans to confront the queen of fabrications with the cold, hard truth, via her lasso, but no sooner does she arrive in the Dome than the Queen's huntsman snaps it easily. Her colleagues are then confronted by their own cultures' nightmarish fictions. Wonder Woman calls the Flash to help them, as she subjects the Queen of Fables to her truth-revealing lasso, forcing her to recognize that the world is not at all what she wishes it was: still the land of fairy tale. And the worst thing: in the 'real' world, the Queen ages. As the Flash arrives, the Queen turns back into pages of a book, and is sucked into the tome in the Flash's possession. Which turns out to be the United States Tax Code Manual for 2001, wherein there is no imagination for her to build on, and no characters for her to terrorize.
Glad to have 'won', the League nevertheless resume to argue over the expulsion of Batman, whose presence throughout may have brought things to a close more quickly. Or perhaps not.
