Synopsis

With Nikos Aegeus appearing on Mount Olympus a fight erupts between him and Wonder Woman but before any large punches can be thrown, Strife grows to a colossal size and picks Nikos up, threatening to eat him. Before she can, Nikos is teleported away and Diana thanks her sister God.

In London, Donna Troy is being shown the sights by Violet who gives her a history lesson and leaves Donna on a park bench, promising to text her. Donna, unsure of what texting is, notices Violet left her bag and promises to return it.

Nikos returns to his underground base where he cowers before the glowing green pool in the centre of the room. From within the voice commands him to shoot the current God of War to absorb her powers. The Goddess in the pool walks over to him and makes him understand the price of failure.

Donna manages to track Violet down, from the hallways she can hear the sounds of a fight before she can see it. She bursts into Link’s room where he is violently beating Violet, now noticing her Link throws Violet to the floor heavily where she lands on her head dying instantly. Enraged, Donna flies up at the villain but she is stopped by Wonder Woman before she can beat him into a pulp. Donn rationalises that it was not her fault but instead Diana’s and charges her out of a window onto the street below.

As Donna stands over Diana and arrow sails through the air and hits Donna straight through the chest. Aegeus walks over and explains how he thought he was helping and to apologise; he had realised how wrong his benefactor was and was trying to make amends when she arrives. Before Diana and Nikos stands Eirene, Goddess of Peace.
