The final issue was published in August 2019 and was replaced by a new series with the same name starting in September 2019, although the new series was not exclusive to Walmart.

Synopsis - Come Back To Me - Part Eight
The aliens state that the capture of the fighters from the island along with the princess Sibella will provide them with a good sum. As they talk, one of them gets pierced through his chest by a mysterious small projectile and the other gets pierced through his head as he tries to protect the princess. The surviving alien seals the room and Diana who awakes from her sleep, realizes what’s happening. She spots that the hull of the spaceship has been pierced and quickly seals it with a giant metal slab. As Cheetah and Sibella awake, the latter realizes that Diana saved them by sealing the hull.
As Cheetah attacks Wonder Woman, she is subdued and is only released upon agreeing to calm down as Diana states she is not the one she should be fighting. Diana takes back her lasso from he and tells Sibella that her powers seem to have returned. Sibells states that the sleep chambers heal one’s body and the aliens transporting them are Ghiskarri bounty hunters. The three women decide to take the ship though Sibella states that the pods of others can’t be opened and they’ll need to subdue four more Ghiskarris to take control.
Diana stops her compatriots from firing their guns after spotting two Ghiskarris and subdues them silently, before stopping Cheetah from executing them. Sibella expresses disgust at Cheetah wanting to kill and verbally spars with her causing her to leave. As the ship’s captain tanh tells the pilot to inform the Arena of Death about their valuable captives, Cheetah tells them to prepare to die. Diana and Sibella rush to stop her are too late. Diana grabs Barbara in anger but is told by Sibella to worry about getting away, as they will be in trouble once the staff of Arena of Death learns about the dead bounty hunters.
The ship is however unable to turn around as the arena’s tractor beam has already locked on to it and Sibella decides to take Diana and Cheetah to the trophy room in order to dress up in their collected gear. Meanwhile the Arena guards come out to collect the captives and after noticing that no one inside is responding are told by their cyborg boss Rigg to be ready for any skirmishes. As Rigg orders them to force open the door, the three women come out dressed up in the gear collected by the bounty hunters and demand they be taken to meet with the leader of the arena.
Synopsis - The Villain's Journey - Chapter Two: The Belly of the Beast
This story is reprinted from Justice League (Volume 2) #10.
Three years ago, in the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia, David Graves battles extreme weather as he searches for something near Mount Sumeru, a place known by some for its connection to the afterlife. David encounters a temple surrounded by three large deities with six arms.
These gods, the Asuras, were cursed to scavenge at the bottom of the heavens by the other gods.
Exhausted, David begs for help. Instead the deities tell David he must complete the journey on his own power. With his life fading away, David crawls towards the mystical temple.
In the present, Steve Trevor is still imprisoned in a room where David Graves has taken him. Steve frees himself from his restraints, and as he attempts to head through an exit door, he is assaulted by demonic spirits. These entities call out to him, wanting to feed on his personal loss and emotional pain.
Aquaman helps rescue survivors of a cruise ship that has shipwrecked. Some TV reporters get in his face, rudely suggesting that there are other super-heroes more deserving of Justice League membership. As Aquaman shakes off the insults, Cyborg summons him to an emergency Justice League meeting.
At the Watchtower, Batman explains to the other members that an individual named “Graves” has been attacking, torturing, and interrogating Justice League enemies. When Green Lantern asks why this is even a problem, Cyborg tells him that Graves has been collecting information about their secrets, including weaknesses and relationships of the Justice League members.
While the group discusses the nature of this unknown foe, Graves shows up at the Watchtower, using Steve Trevor’s access code. Wonder Woman wants to know what Graves has done to Steve Trevor. As she lunges towards him, he uses his powers to incapacitate her, sending demonic spirits that feed off her emotional pain. Diana relives the pain of when her mother was turned to stone.
In flashbacks, we see that David was looking to reunite with his deceased family members, and went to the Asuras’ temple to do so. Graves sees what seems to be his family’s spirits, and the Asuras tell him he will have his vengeance. Graves absorbs several spirits, turning him into a powerful being.
Back in the Watchtower, the team attacks Graves, but they are bombarded by the spirits, as they feed on each member’s emotional pain and personal loss. As Superman is the final victim, the other heroes already lie on the floor, lifeless and emaciated.
Synopsis - Who Is Wonder Woman? - Part Three
This story is reprinted from Wonder Woman (Volume 3) #3.
Hercules proceeds to deal with the villains as Diana leads the injured Nemesis out of harms way. Once he is safe, Diana rushes back to aid Hercules but he tells her in no uncertain terms that her help is not wanted. He brings Giganta crashing down, frees Donna and then deals with the attacking Cheetah. Diana checks on the dazed Donna who is somewhat surprised to see it is really Diana looking down at her.
Just then Doctor Psycho appears and tries to get into Diana’s mind but before he can even start. Hercules sends him flying with a powerful punch. He then pins the dwarf down with his sword raised, preparing to strike but Diana pulls the God off, allowing Psycho together with the other villains to disappear into thin air taking Cassie and Donna with them.
An enraged Hercules tells Diana that this is all her fault and proceeds to lecture her on how she has abandoned her mission and role. He explains that the Gods have now sent him to act as their champion on Earth. She tries to respond that she has not renounced her mission at all – just the means by which to carry it out. But Hercules replies that if she thinks simply pretending to be someone else is all it takes, then she is very much mistaken. He tells her she has walked away from those that need her, just when they needed her most. She has entrusted her duty to apprentices whose very lives are now in danger because of her actions. He tells her that he will sort out her mess and find her friends without her help.
As he walks off, Diana tells Nemesis that she has other ideas.
They then return to their HQ where Diana briefs Nemesis on Hercules. He decides that Hercules now falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Meta Human Affairs and needs to be investigated further.
A short while later she and Nemesis sneak into the Greek Embassy, which Hercules has now made his new residence. They enter just in time to see Hercules being zapped by powerful magical forces and watch as he is turned into a Minotaur. They are then themselves attacked by other Bestiamorphs and Nemesis is also turned into an animal. Diana finds herself alone and confronted by her arch enemy Circe!
Diana sees Cassie and Donna hanging in chains nearby and tells Circe to free them as she is the one the witch reallywants to punish. Circe replies that in fact she wants to help Diana. She continues to explain that if Diana does not want to be Wonder Woman anymore, she does not have to be.
As Diana fights her way through the Bestiamorphs to reach her friends, she tells the witch she does not need her God given powers and that in fact, she never even called herself “Wonder Woman” – that had just been the name the Press had given her. Circe responds that it was nevertheless a powerful symbol which she has duly wasted pursuing a personal agenda. As Diana tries to free her friends she is zapped by Circe’s magic and finds herself in chains too.
Circe reminds the captured Diana that she had traded her soul to gain the power of Hectate. She had then used these powers to become the immortal avenger of all wronged women. In that case, Diana asks, why does Circe not fight with her instead of against her. The witch replies that the only one Diana is fighting for anymore is herself. Thousands of women were being beaten, raped and murdered because they had nobody to fight for them – and all because Diana was too busy being a superhero to be their champion. And now Diana is not even a superhero anymore – she is just pretending to be human.
With that, Diana is blasted by Circe’s magic and is shocked to find she has been turned into a normal human being. “Well Guess what”, Circe smiles, “You don’t have to pretend anymore!”…
