Justice League: Cry for Justice #6 (March, 2010)

Using specific vulnerabilities against them, Prometheus managed to defeat Supergirl, Starman, Red Tornado, Zatanna, Plastic Man, Black Canary, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, the Guardian, Dr. Light, and the Vixen. The Maid of Might was shot in the shoulder by a bullet with a casing forged by Vulcan and acquired from Mercy Graves. Improbably, Prometheus fired shafts from a wrist launcher that somehow managed to pierce Donna Troy's bracelets and impale her against a wall. The Amazon refused this seeming defeat, chanting "no" as a mantra while she slowly, painfully tore herself free. In the meantime, Prometheus took out Starfire, Firestorm, and Green Lantern Hal Jordan.

Green Arrow managed to draw a bead on Prometheus, only to learn that it was merely a holographic projection, and accidentally shot Donna Troy in the right thigh. Donna, who had been running, collapsed and tumbled to the floor unconscious.

Prometheus continued to plow through the Atom, Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick, and the Shade. Bleeding profusely, Donna revived and tackled the villain from behind. With swift, brutal fury, Donna ripped apart the helmet that directed Prometheus' actions, then beat him about the head savagely. The Shade ended up catching Donna by the wrist to stop her from going over the line. "My ardent dear. The last time I checked in the big book of superhero bylaws and whatnot... your kind doesn't kill. Unless you want to go down the dark lanes that I amble, I'd stop now... for the next blow will surely be his end. Besides, you've won. No need to show off."

The sixth chapter of Cry For Justice, “The Game” was by James Robinson and Scott Clark.
