In the popular comic series Infinite Crises, she confronts Max Lord. With her laso of truth she interrogates the villain and comes into conversation with him. Max Lord himself says that there is only one way to stop him permanently: Wonder Woman has to kill him on the spot. The Amazon has no choice but to break his neck at once.
