Synopsis

Supergirl faces up to Wonder Woman to protect the Star Chamber. Diana states she knows Kara is remarkably brave, but grief has led her down the wrong path, so her sympathy ends there. Supergirl replies she only wants to save her planet and go home, and engages Wonder Woman.

While both super-women brawl, H’el’s machinations are affecting the fabric of space-time around Earth. Superman and H’el fight near from the Star Chamber, and H’el has the upper hand until he puts Superman’s foster parents down. Superman angrily hammers at H’el, warning him against talking about his family, human or Kryptonian. Then he accuses him from lying to his cousin and manipulating her into helping him by preying on her grief. In reply H’el punches him out of the planet.

Kara and Diana fight on. Wonder Woman eventually uses her Lasso of Truth to snare Kara. Kara manages to break free with a corona wave sunburst, but the effort drains her. Wonder Woman flies her out of the Star Chamber platform and finally explains Hel’s plan to travel back in time would result in the destruction of the solar system.

Hel turns up all of a sudden and attacks Wonder Woman. However Supergirl angrily confronts him about lying to her and manipulating her, angry at the fact that people might be dying because she helped him.

H’el gives her an ultimatum: Earth or Krypton.
