* KarmaHoudini: The Amazon soldiers go out of their way to carry out genocide with fervor and eagerness that would put the Schutzstaffel to shame...and as punishment, they have their memories erased, and are implanted in normal lives across the world. And even this is later reversed, making [[spoiler: Granny Goodness]] the only character who seemed to think that an entire nation leaping at the chance to enact mass murder merited some sort of punishment.
** {{Retcon}}ned in ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' with a prison labor camp full of Amazon war criminals.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Given by Athena to all parties at the conclusion. [[spoiler: And she turns out to be Granny Goodness in disguise.]]

** On a larger level, the Amazons were punished and forced into isolation by Athena herself for ''doing the same exact thing to Herakles' men''. And at least they had the motivation of having been ''raped'' by them. However, the punishment was swift and decisive by the goddess for their acts on just a hundred men. The first ''day'' involved the deaths of tens of ''thousands'' of ''innocent'' men... and ''children''.

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}}''.

* 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.
