''Amazons Attack!'' was a 2007 Creator/DCComics miniseries, written by Will Pfeiffer with art by Pete Woods. The plot involves the return of Franchise/WonderWoman's mother, Queen Hippolyta, from the dead. Under the advice of Circe, a frequent enemy of the Amazons in the past, she leads the Amazons in an attack on Washington, D.C. aimed at rescuing her daughter from American captivity.

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 ComicBook/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}}''.

Ultimately, the war ends and the true players behind the conflict are revealed, but only after considerable death and destruction.

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 Pete Woods contributed gorgeous art to the project, it's difficult to find positive comments about any ''other'' aspects of the project.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AdvertisedExtra: Wonder Woman is featured in the promotional artwork as well as the covers and the trade collection is even listed as a Wonder Woman book. She appeared in about 20 pages of it ''at most''.
* ArmorIsUseless: On both sides. Plate armor is just as useless against assault rifles as reality would dictate, but American tanks and planes are also quite vulnerable to magical but primitive-looking Amazon weaponry
* AxCrazy: Hippolyta.
* BeeBeeGun: See the page quote.
* DeusExMachina: Just like the plays in ancient Greece, only without the strings holding "Athena" up.
* DoesNotLikeMen: The entire Amazon race as portrayed here.
* FromBadToWorse: Happens several times over the course of the conflict.
* HijackedByGanon: Taken UpToEleven. A brainwashed Queen Hippolyta has led the Amazons of Themyscira to wage war on the United States! BUT WAIT! It turns out that Queen Hippolyta's attack was actually [[spoiler:all a SecretTestOfCharacter by the goddess Athena!]] BUT WAIT! It turns out it was all a convoluted plot masterminded [[spoiler:by Granny Goodness of the ComicBook/NewGods while ''disguised'' as Athena and keeping the other Greek gods imprisoned!]]
* InfantImmortality: Averted. In fact, its what kicks off the plot as two Amazons brutally kill an innocent father and ''his young son'' just because they are male.
* JustFollowingOrders: Apparently, this is the excuse that let the vast majority of the Amazons waltz away from the conflict with nothing more than amnesia. The excuse rings a ''lot'' hollow when Amazons are depicted on several occasions going out of their way to commit war crimes against innocent civilians.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:Granny Goodness]].
* MonumentalDamage: Few Washington landmarks emerge unscathed.
* 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.]]
* RockBeatsLaser: The Amazons' horses fly faster than jets, and their bows beat guns and tanks.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Athena ([[spoiler:by which we mean Granny Goodness]]) tries to pass the whole story off as one of these in the last issue. According to her, everyone failed.
* SeriesContinuityError: In issue #3, Hippolyta demands for unconditional surrender within one day. In #4, the broadcast of the demands is for one week.
* StrawFeminist: One of many reasons not to bring this series up around Wonder Woman fans.
* 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.
* WashingtonDCInvasion: The ''raison d'être'' of the entire project.
