The Black Clad break into the Old Bailey Courthouse in London. They kill the security guards, and take the workers, alongside an entire group of school students hostage. The Black Clad Alpha prepares a bomb, wanting to blow up several building blocks, claiming it will send humanity back to the Dark Ages.[1]


Diana ready to save the hostages

Wonder Woman arrives shortly after, bursting into the room and quickly defeating all of the Alpha's henchmen. The Alpha attempts to kill the hostages with bullets, only for Wonder Woman to block each bullet. Wonder Woman quickly takes the bomb, throwing it high into the sky where it explodes, stopping the Black Clad's plan altogether.[1]

Asking what Diana is, the Amazon replies she's a believer, before finally defeating the Alpha. After a while, she freed the hostages and went back to Paris. At the Louvre, Diana watched a news report showing a signal fire burning at the Shrine of the Amazons and knew that it had been sent by her mother to warn of the impending invasion.[1]
