Synopsis

Wonder Woman tears cars apart at a charity show for women’s shelters attended by Clark and Lois. Later, Clark and Lois congratulate Diana for her charity efforts. Ever since the Infinite Crisis, Diana has acquired a secret identity to become closer to the people she is meant to protect.

Meanwhile, a woman named Khyrana smashes a display case and takes a bracelet she claims to be hers. Clark tries to stop her, so she blasts him, removing all of his non-Superman clothes in full view of the public. Fortunately, this happens so quickly no one is able to discover his secret identity. Superman is drained and weakened, as is Wonder Woman. Khyrana takes Superman and leaves.

When she recovers, Diana explains Khyrana to Lois. Khyrana was a woman who is so famous for turning down men’s sexual advances that she got Zeus’ attention, who, in revenge for her turning him down, cursed into craving the constant attention of men.

Wonder Woman follows Khyrana to her penthouse and finds Superman, dazed. Khyrana attacks Wonder Woman, and drains her. The magic of Wonder Woman interferes with Superman’s power in Khyrana, and she weakens. Superman and Wonder Woman punch her out and she’s taken away.

Lois brings them home, where they collapse on the couch and fall asleep together. Amused by such situation, Lois compliments her own trust towards Clark and Diana.
