Is there any canon instance where Princess Diana of Themyscira (aka Wonder Woman)'s "Lasso of Truth" has ever snapped? Or is it truly indestructible?

Perhaps when it was created the boast meant that it would not be able to be broken by any weak god or strong mortal of the period. I suspect that any of the greater gods such as Zeus, Posidon, Hera, and Hades could break it. Especially since Bizarro managed the feat. His strength should only approximate Superman's full strength, implying that a superstrong mortal such as Superman, Doomsday, perhaps Captain Marvel, and Black Adam all possess the ability to break it. Assuming they could resist the will power attack to stand still once wrapped within it. "Unbreakable" is relative... –  Thaddeus May 4 at 17:48
@Thaddeus - It can only be broken where truth itself is in question; Bizarro breaks it because he's the antithesis of truth, Rama-Khan breaks it because Wonderwoman refuses to accept that he's telling the truth. In both cases, the lasso repairs itself immediately afterwards. Superman has tried repeatedly to escape its bonds so clearly strength isn't what's needed... –  Richard May 5 at 20:02
