DC published an oversized graphic novel Wonder Woman:Spirit of Truth in which the amazon princess questions her roll as a superhero. She goes to an unnamed middle eastern country in order to help the populace, but they merely stone her as a foreign, half-nude temptress of Satan. She has similar reactions in other countries (though not as extreme) and decides to visit her buddy Clark Kent and ask how he deals with the issue of being "other". His answer: blend in. Take a secret identity. She tries it, likes it, and returns to this unnamed middle eastern country, this time covered from head to foot in order to blend in. This can't last, though, and in a very dramatic scene she drops her abbaya and steps forth as the shining godess she is.
