Using her Laney's identity, she launched a project for an unauthorized and highly inaccurate and slanderous Wonder Woman biography. Her goal was to both ruin Wonder Woman's reputation and to annoy her enough that she would show up on set to protest, at which point the Queen trapped and tried to kill her.

* The assassination of [["UsefulNotes/Afghanistan" anti-Taliban resistance fighter Ahmad Shah Massoud]] just 1 day before 9/11 was a case of this.

However, he died en route.

->We had a problem, we couldn't get a permit in New York City to open a shoe store on short notice merely to sell 500 pairs of shoes over a couple of days. But we could get a ''film permit'' quickly, so we did, then put a fake camera on a tripod outside and a sign indicating we were shooting locations for our film ''The Making of a Shoe Store''. We sold all the shoes by the end of the day.
