Of course, all is not exactly what it seems, and among other things, Wonder Woman's captivity had been engineered by Circe herself. The plot involves a number of subplots, including the Justice League's attempts to fight back, the internment of women suspected of Amazon sympathies by the U.S. government, and an ill-fated mission by Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and WonderGirl to speak to the President of the United States. Events from ''Amazons Attack'' also affected a number of other books, including the weekly ''ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis'' series, ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', and ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* StrawMisogynist: At one point, the Amazons found a female pilot on the ground, and one of them kills her without a second thought. Nor do the other Amazons bat an eye about it. Later, it is shown that a group of Amazons tried to kill Lucy Lane.

* JustFollowingOrders: Apparently, this is the excuse that let the vast majority of the Amazons waltz from the conflict with nothing more than amnesia. The excuse rings a bit hollow when Amazons are depicted on several occasions going out of their way to commit war crimes against innocent civilians.

* HijackedByGanon: It turns out Queen Hippolyta's killing spree happened because Athena was running a SecretTestOfCharacter. BUT WAIT! It turns out the real villain is [[spoiler:Granny Goodness, Darkseid's {{Dragon}}, disguised as Athena]]!

* StrawFeminist: One of many reasons not to bring this series up around WonderWoman fans.

For a miniseries expected to be a major "event" comic, sales of ''Amazons Attack'' were disappointing at best, and the critical/fan reception even worse. While most fans agree that while Pete Woods contributed gorgeous art to the project, it's difficult to find positive comments about any ''other'' aspects of the project.
