Synopsis

With Wonder Woman gone, Jason is left to confront the Dark Gods alone. He uses the gift of Athena’s wisdom to get up to speed as to who these Dark Gods are before preparing to take them on as they emerge from their respective monoliths.

He manages to just about hold his own against them, especially when Supergirl arrives on the scene having snapped out of her trance. But he realises that even with the powers of his suit he has no real plan or strategy but that Diana would have known exactly what to do.

As he reports into A.R.G.U.S Steve tells him how the Dark Gods have now spread out across the world causing havoc. Jason is relieved to see the Justice League arrive and he brings them quickly up to speed on recent events. They notice how similar the giant monoliths are to the ones in the now damaged Source Wall.

They form up to confront the remaining monolith, King Best, who has not revealed his true form yet. But he has been absorbing energies to enable himself to reawaken and uses the combined power of the Justice league to charge himself up. As they all seeming vanish into thin air Jason his left once again alone to face the behemoth.

As it begins to rampage across Washington DC Steve sends a squadron of attack helicopters but they are swatted like flies.

As Jason’s belief in himself and his ability to save the day begins to fade Wonder Woman arrives, having been returned by the Star Sapphires, and reassures him that they will face this threat together.
