Synopsis

Alex succeeds in his plan to restore the old multiverse, and most of Earth’s heroes are sent to a version of Earth-2, albeit uninhabited, while others are sent to their respective Earths that once existed pre-Crisis in the same condition as Earth-2. As both Supermen fight each other on Earth-2, due to the older Superman blaming the younger one for his wife’s death, Wonder Woman tries to stop a riot taking place, with citizens fleeing in fear of her being a known killer, when her Earth-Two counterpart intervenes, taking her to Earth-Two to try reasoning with both Supermen.

The Earth-Two Wonder Woman also tries to tell her younger counterpart that her mission is over and that she needs to start acting human. As Earth-Two Wonder Woman and her invisible jet vanish into nothingness, New Earth Wonder Woman appears before a devastated Metropolis on Earth-Two, seeing that it’s the fight between the two Supermen that’s destroying it. She lassos Kal-L in order to get him to stop fighting and listen to reason, but Kal-L is still pointing the finger at her, Kal-El, and New Earth Batman for their failing to create a “perfect Earth” — to which Kal-El answers that “a perfect Earth doesn’t need a Superman”. It is there that Kal-L stops fighting and instead flies over to where the body of his dead wife is to hold her one last time.
