In a clumsy plot device to create further shock value in the dreadful cross-over story the entire island of Themyscira is used as a shield to protect the Earth in order to be spectacularly destroyed. Really? That’s all they could think of to use?

Synopsis

In order to stop the advancing enemy Diana persuades her Amazon sisters to use Paradise Island as a shield. It buys the Earth some time but the Amazon home world is utterly destroyed. As the situation gets desperate, Diana and the Amazons are forced to ally themselves with Darkseid in a last ditch attempt to gain victory. Their prayers are channelled into the New God to enable him to regain his lost powers. A part of Wonder Woman’s soul is transferred across into the unwitting Darkseid, leaving him with a small essence of compassion.
