Synopsis

Wonder Woman, Aphrodite and Maggie arrive at a town where love has broken out everywhere and people are completely losing their inhibitions. As the sword that Maggie carries seems to have been leading them here Diana suspects there is more at play here than meets the eye.

As they ask the townsfolk what has happened they are told all this happened when the Cupids arrived. Suddenly Wonder Woman finds herself under attack, as she is told that they do not like it when people interfere. But suddenly Aphrodite steps forward and orders them to stop at once. The Cupids duly obey, cowering before their mistress.

Wonder Woman asks the Goddess why these creatures have gone rogue and Aphrodite replies she has her suspicions. There is only one other person other than her that can control them in this way – her child, Antlantiades. Diana asks why she would be so destructive and Aphrodite replies that when the Olympians were transported from their home to here, it seems to have changed them all in some way.

Suddenly the subdued Cupids leap into life again and rise up in the sky, joining together to form a face that speaks to them on the ground. She warns them not to take another step and that she has brought unbridled joy to the town, for she is lust. But Wonder Woman is unimpressed with her threats and flies up to tear through the throng of Cupids, breaking them up.

She then tells the others that the sword had lead them here for a reason so they either turn back or continue. And she never turns back.

At last they arrive at the house where Antlantiades is residing on a lounger. She greets them but adds that she hopes they are not planning to stay…
