Synopsis

Paulie Longo has a meeting with a lot of assassins and they are all killed with Joker venom. Meanwhile Artemis fights another superhuman, this time trying to save some Rain forest. She gets the Lasso of Truth around him and he suddenly realises all of the trouble he’s caused and the bad person he’s been – then kills himself.

Diana has been paralysed by one of Joker’s toxins. She spiritually seeks the help of Pan, a God not unlike the Joker. She asks him to teach her his dance so she may understand chaos and that it doesn’t control her. He does so and she surprises the Joker by ruining the punchline of a joke he’s been telling. Learning the dance makes her a little crazy and she starts telling her own jokes while she beats him up.

The White Magician and Paulie Longo are about to eliminate everyone in the building but Cheetah stops them, repaying the debt she feels she owes Diana. She and the White Magician then disappear. Longo sees Julianna Sazia trying to escape so he attempts to run her over with her own limo. But she says she knows him too well and then blows it up.
