How Did Wonder Woman Avoid Legal Punishment for Killing Maxwell Lord?

In the second issue of her new ongoing series (by Allan Heinberg, Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson), we learn that Wonder Woman was found not guilty in abstentia...

Reader Steve also wrote in (after I mentioned in an earlier post about times that Wonder Woman was wanted by the police that I didn't recall exactly when they resolved the whole murder deal) that they also addressed it in the pages of Manhunter, where Wonder Woman hires Kate Spencer in Manhunter #26 (by Marc Andreyko, Javier Pina and Robin Riggs) from any U.S. charges over the killing...

After a lot of shenanigans over the next few issues, the Grand Jury ultimately decides not to indict Wonder Woman...

So that resolves that!

Thanks to Steve for suggesting this one.

If anyone has a suggestion for a comic book series that has its plots wrapped up in another comic, drop me a line at brianc@cbr.com!
