Synopsis

After seeing that Darkseid has targeted Diana’s home, she and Mike Schorr are transported to Themyscira via a portal generated by Metron. Upon arriving, they see that it is a paradise no longer, but is a flaming ruin. Darkseid then orders his troops to attack them. Wonder Woman, already angry, unleashes her fury upon the ill-fated troopers.

Meanwhile, Schorr spots a trooper attempting to attack Wonder Woman from the rear. He propels himself into the trooper and they both fall in front of the dreaded Darkseid. Darkseid grabs hold of Mike and orders Diana to halt her attack upon his troopers. Diana tells him that he will gain nothing by killing Mike.

Elsewhere, in an old castle, Morgaine Le Fay is lying on her bed and listening to reports of Wonder Woman from her assistant, Professor Warly. She tells him that the time has come for her to claim immortality, and once again casts herself into the rejuvenating flames.

Back on Themyscira, suddenly and quite unexpectedly, a spear finds its way into Darkseid’s back. He sees that the Amazons have returned to the battlefield and furious at their audacity, he gestures and countless gunships appear high above their heads.

Darkseid asks Diana the location of the other Gods for the final time. Diana replies that neither she no the rest of the Amazons know where the Olympians are. Darkseid roars, “ I am a God and I shall have your respect in the final moments before I have your souls”.

He then gestures again and the gunships rain fire down on the Amazons. Within seconds, the whole place is reduced to mere rubble. What was once a beautiful paradise is now littered with the corpses of slaughtered Amazons.
