Synopsis

As Wonder Woman prepares to interrogate the two Female Furies Steve and the Oddfellows had brought into custody, Jason assists Steve to take out another group of Parademons. Steve still does not trust Diana’s brother and while he may have all these great powers he needs training and discipline to use them in Steve’e eyes.

As they have a frank discussion Steve probes how much Jason can recall as to how and where he acquired his new armour from. But Jason cannot remember anything other than “giants” and Steve tells him that as part of his role he has already worked out a way to take down Diana if the need ever arose – along with the rest of the Justice League should they ever go rogue – so Jason should not for one minute think he has not also got a plan for Diana’s brother too.

Back at A.R.G.U.S. Wonder Woman tells the Furies she could just use the lasso on them but, releasing their bonds, she offers them the honour of fighting to prevent her taking the truth from them.

At the same moment Darkseid and Grail, together with their minions, prepare to make their assault on A.R.G.U.S. HQ. Steve, Jason and the rest of the team set up positions to surround the artefacts they know Darkseid will be coming for.

As a deafening noise surrounds the building and Wonder Woman is told that she and the Justice League could not defeat Darkseid so what makes her think she stands a chance against hi on her own? But far from Darkseid making an assault on the building, he instead actually transports the part of the complex he needs to his Amazon Jungle lair.

As Wonder Woman, Steve, Jason and the others get to their feet to check on casualties she sees her foe standing there before her. He smiles and tells her it is their final battle and she willingly walks forward unafraid, stating “No quarter asked for…or given“.
