The Cheetah has clawed her way out of Belle Reve, and is hungry for blood—but before she steps up as one of the Secret Society’s most powerful generals, she has a personal score to settle!

We're all aware that there are two separate continuities between the eponymous Wonder Woman series and every other New 52 Amazing Amazon adventure, right? This is a super-hero story set in Justice League continuity, or I suppose with the joint Superman/Wonder Woman ongoing series coming up, this exists in its continuum.
