"Reflections" causes praise, as well as a stir, with some sections of the community not happy with the views she shares. A mysterious woman, Veronica Cale, who hates Diana so much, sets herself on destroying Diana's reputation by any and all means, by using her book to create negativity toward the Amazon. She also uses a video camera that captured Wonder Woman and The Flash's disagreement over the best way to handle a Forest Fire, with Diana stopping Flash, saying that the fire must continue as part of its "rebirthing" process, to her advantage.
Thanks to Cale, while Diana's staff fights the media's negative views on Diana thanks to her book, the leader of the outspoken opposition to Diana's book is shot dead outside the Themysciran Embassy, which Cale hopes will bring scandal and accusation upon Wonder Woman and tarnish her reputation irrevocably. Also thanks to Cale, Dr. Psycho and the Silver Swan fight the Amazon that leads to her home at the Themysciran Embassy. Finally, Diana faces off against Silver Swan where she is defeated. But as she is still her friend, she takes her for help to Themyscira.
In a subplot; above in Mount Olympus, the Gods and Goddesses have a disagreement toward Zeus continuing his reign on the throne. When a jealous Hera accuses her husband Zeus of lustfully watching the Amazons, from a fit of rage, she sends the floating islands of Themyscira crashing back down to the sea!
The main plot point of the arc was Diana's book known as "Reflections: A Collection of Essays and Speeches", where Rucka viewed it from almost every conceivable angle. Even though they were never published, Rucka actually had very detailed notes as to what her book contained, including some sample chapter titles and essay excerpts. All in presenting what kind of topics Diana would be addressing from her written voice. Rucka explains that his idea for the book was less Salman Rushdie, but a book of ideas than attacks in order for Diana to promote her mission in the Man’s World. Just like any other book in our reality, while Diana encounters praise, she also encounters controversy. It is seen when a conservative group wants to censor Diana because they believe what she is saying, her truth, threatens their own.
