However, Special Agent Tom Tresser (aka Nemesis) has already freed Diana. The two catch up with the Justice League of America who tell Diana that the Amazons are being led by her mother. Diana refuses to believe it could be her, but decides to find out. When she locates her mother, Diana she can’t believe it really is Hippolyta. While Diana attempts to convince her mother to stop the war, the Department of Metahuman Affairs capture Nemesis, who manages to disguise himself as Sarge Steel to force the DMA to take them both into custody. At the DMA, Nemesis reveals the impostor to be Everyman and also learns there is a nuclear bomb targeted for Themyscira. Meanwhile, Diana has found Circe and demands to know why Circe started the war. When Nemesis tells Diana about the bomb, Diana realizes that if Circe destroyed Themyscira it would put the Amazons at the mercy of humans. Just then, Hippolyta kills Crice as a traitor. Before she dies, Circe tells Diana the only way to stop the war is to kill her mother.
Moments before Circe dies at the hands of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, the witch tells Diana that to end the war, she must kill her mother.

Special Agent Tom Tresser (aka Nemesis) is able to get it away from her, but unwillingly unleashes the weapon: a horde of Stygian Killer Hornets. Nemesis then gets stung. The only antidote is on Themyscira. Diana blames her mother for what happened. Hippolyta can’t believe that her daughter would care for Nemesis or for humans. Diana tells her mother that Hippolyta once asked if Diana would die for the humans. Now Diana asks if Hippolyta would kill her own daughter to win the war as she places a knife in her mother’s hand and puts the blade to her own neck.

Nemesis is waiting for her, except it is really Everyman, the shape-shifter who posed as Sarge Steel. Everyman sets off a bomb near Diana. As he runs away, he encounters Circe, who happens to be Nemesis in disguise. Everyman realizes this and tries to get away but Nemesis is able to capture him.

At the United Nations, the Olympians tell the world they have failed to deliver peace. From this point forward, they will remake the world. At the hospital, Wonder Woman receives a message for Athena, who explains the origin of Genocide and to warn her that the Olympians, in trying to create peace, will start Earth’s final war. In Russia, the Olympians are ransacking a weapons cache when Wonder Woman attacks them. She tells them they have no idea of the war they are starting.

Elsewhere, Alkyone says god riddance to the monstrosity while she lovingly adores the gift Ares gave her. A daughter of her own. Which she calls Genocide.
After renouncing all connection to her Gods and her people, Diana (aka Wonder Woman) returns to her home in Washington DC and her job at the department of Metahuman Affairs. There, T. O. Morrow tells Diana that Genocide is still alive. The body is in Tokyo, where Dr. Psycho is using a metahuman fight arena as cover while he repairs Genocide’s body. Diana asks Dinah Lance (aka black Canary) for help to locate Dr. Psycho. In Themyscira, new leader Achilles tells the Amazons to relinquish their weapons so they can retire in peace. Afterwards, Achilles asks Alkyone if she would be his Queen. In Japan, Dinah and Diana go undercover as contestants at the arena. In the fight, Diana displays new powers that she doesn’t know where they came from. However, they are able to win the fight. Watching, the Goddess of Violence declares she wants to fight Diana to the death because she killed her father.
In Tokyo, Wonder Woman and Black Canary are in disguise as arena fighters in an attempt to find Dr. Psycho and rescue Sarge Steel. They have learned Dr. Psycho has switched bodies. That night, Wonder Woman uses the lasso on Dr. Pyscho’s body to awaken the mind of Sarge Steel trapped inside. In the arena, the duo prepare to battle. Their opponent is Pele, the daughter of Kane Milohai, the God to whom Diana had offered fealty. Now, Pele wants revenge for the death of her father at the hands of Zeus. Pele literally removes Wonder Woman from the arena. Pele blames Wonder Woman for her father’s death. Wonder Woman realizes this and decides to make amends. She kneels to Pele. All of her vows to her father are now passed to Pele. Later, Wonder Woman returns to the arena in time to save Sarge Steel and capture Dr. Psycho. Back home, Tom Tresser decides to end his relationship with Wonder Woman.
Last night, Diana (aka Wonder Woman) and Tom Tresser (aka Nemesis) discuss their romance. When they realize they want different things, they break up. The next morning, Diana feels the need to let out some aggression. When she sees Doris Zuel (aka Giganta), she attacks. However, Giganta doesn’t fight back, telling Diana she was waiting for her date. On Themyscira, Achilles and Akylone are officially married and designated King and Queen. Meanwhile, Diana and Doris discuss their relationships. As they are talking, Pele interrupts to tell Diana that Zeus has called to his champion. Pele warns Diana to remember her vow. Later, Diana meets Achilles on the field of battle. She tries to stop the war. When he refuses, the two fight. Diana wins the battle and orders Achilles to stand down. He refuses and tells Diana she will stand down instead, because he has the tactical advantage. He has her mother.
Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) is visited by Ares, who tells her that despite being killed by her, he is not finished. He will make her suffer. And someone will betray her. On Themyscira, Hippolyta visits one of the pregnant Amazons. Hippolyta then learns of the return of the Bana-Mighdall. Elsehwere, Achilles and his betrothed Akylone spar. Akylone suggests that Achilles hurt Wonder Woman by killing her ape companions to demonstrated the strength of Achilles. Later, Diana visits Achilles and tells him she is taking Hippolyta off the island. Suddenly, Donna Troy attacks. Diana recognizes that Donna is enthralled, so Diana decides to prove how much Donna means to her. It is enough to stop the fight. However, Hippolyta doesn’t want to go. No matter what happens to her, if it keeps the Amazons together, it will be worth it. Besides, Akylone is now the queen of the Amazons.
Notas: The return of the Bana-Mighdall occurred in Secret Six (also written by Gail Simone and featuring a guest appearance by Wonder Woman), beginning with issue #10.
Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) has allowed herself to be captured by the new queen of the Amazons, Akylone, in order to save her mother. Artemis offers to help Diana escape. Diana refuses because it would mean the death of her mother. Elsewhere, Achilles is upset at the order to execute Diana. Akylone tells him only the Queen of Themyscira can give the order. Meanwhile, Akylone’s warriors start rounding up Diana’s supporters, including her gorilla allies. Later, Donna Troy confronts Akylone and orders Diana released. Akylone refuses. She does this to save their people. Donna backs down. Now, the execution begins. While Donna searches for Hippolyta, Artemis leads the Amazons to rescue Diana. However, Achilles and his men block Artemis’ path. Despite their best efforts, Akylone kills “Diana.” Except it is someone else. Meanwhile, Achilles’ frees Diana from her Cell. Diana then attacks Akylone, who tells Diana that the death was part of a bargain she made with the dark heart of Akylone. A dark creature rises. It is Cottus, the maker of Diana’s flesh. Her true father.
Notas: The clay that was used to form Diana before she was given life was taken from the same cave in which Cottus dwelled. Diana faced Cottus once before (and killed him), in the “Challenge Of The Gods” storyline during the George Perez of the second volume of Wonder Woman (issue #10).
Queen Akylone of Themyscira has just sacrificed an Amazon to bring to life the creature Cottus, the maker of Diana’s flesh, to send her back to where she belongs. Meanwhile, Achilles attacks , but the Queen and her circle drive spears through his heart. At that moment, Cottus grabs Diana and takes her under the seas. Artemis tells the other Olympians, they can attack Akylone or they can save Diana. Under the water, Diana battles Cottus. She is then joined by Artemis and the Olympians. Her lasso is returned and Diana uses it to tie up Cottus. On ground, Achilles stands to attack Akylone. She is poised to kill him again, but Hippolyta stops her. Achilles then stabs her. Akylone falls into the ground. Diana locates the body and removes the bracelets. After she puts them on, she uses the lightning power within it to destroy Cottus. Afterwards, Zeus admits his mistake. He needed to pick a champion to join the Ichor and thought it would be Achilles. It should’ve been Diana. However, Diana refuses. Zeus abides by the decision. Zeus then leaves to live with the Ichor, but not before banishing Ares from the island forever. Ares is fine with that; he needs more space for his growing family anyway.
