The Light sent a mock crew of League of Shadows operatives to Bwunda to stage an attack on Secretary General Luthor and President M'Barra, posing as the "Bwundan Independence Front". Lia's job was to take out one of the true targets, Ambassador Troia, away from the cameras. Though she took out the Themysciran delegate, they had been expecting an attack. The Team and the Outsiders were concealed in the room, and Miss Martian easily overpowered her and removed her control chip.
Once the commotion had been stopped, Miss Martian took Lia with them on the Bio-Ship, where she could recuperate from the stress caused by the control chip. She consented to further help.
