"But they worshiped us?"
"Now they worship machines. So I will build a machine... that will wipe them out.

Incubus and Enchantress[src]

The Return of Enchantress and Incubus was a three-day conflict that began after June Moone unwittingly released Enchantress from millennia of imprisonment and was possessed to free Incubus, leading to the siblings' attempt to bring down modern civilization and remake the world in their image, intending to destroy the weak and enslave the strong.

This brought them into conflict with Amanda Waller and the newly formed Task Force X, during which they were defeated during the climactic Battle of Midway City.

Background

Fall of the Gods

In 4,000 BCE, Enchantress and Incubus reigned over several Pre-Columbian civilizations of Earth, ushering in a period where humanity discovered the concept of mysticism in return for their unquestioning loyalty to the crown. However, there were some who either sought to make trouble or grew disenchanted with their rule, either way, they betrayed their lord and their queen and sealed their spirits in caves.[1]

Global Reformation

In the aftermath of Enchantress and Incubus' downfall, humans began reforming the world, leading to the creation of various technologies, world cultures, and religions, which humanity would eventually revere to the extent of borderline worship.[1]

Reawakening Incubus

"Brother, I have freed you."
"Where are we?"
"The same world only much later.
"
―Enchantress and Incubus[src]

Soon after, June transforms into the Enchantress during her sleep while in Midway City. She teleports away to Waller's room and opens another vial, which contains the spirit of her brother Incubus. She goes to Midway City and seizes hold of Gerard Davis, playfully smashing his forehead into a mirror before incapacitating him for Incubus to use as a host once she releases him. She proceeded to release Incubus and explain to him what had happened, filling him in on recent events and developments. She told him to wait and build up his powers before they enacted their agenda to cleanse the world and take it back from the corrupt politicians that have taken the Earth in their absence.

When the time came, Incubus attacked the Midway City subway, absorbing many people to restore his true form and destroying trains. The efforts of the U.S. military and local police to "contain" him failed dramatically, with the first responders were wiped out by Incubus' tentacles.[1]

Constructing a Superweapon

"Now you belong to my army."
―Enchantress[src]

Waller then sends June Moone and Rick Flag to destroy Incubus, but the attempt turns into an opportunity for Enchantress to escape and join her brother instead. Although without her heart, and thus unable to bring the full extent of her powers to bear, Enchantress is saved from an apparent death under Waller's hands and is restored to her more healthy form by her brother sharing his power with her. She is then more than capable enough to begin creating her army and an extremely powerful mystical superweapon. Stepping outside, she begins channeling arcs of lightning into the sky. While Incubus continues to wreak havoc in the city and destroy the military's attacks against them, he also contributes to the superweapon by lifting the wreckage of buildings and destroyed military equipment to the "ring" now hovering above Midway City. The military is soon forced to evacuate and call up the rest of the Task Force X against this new threat.[1]

Aftermath

After Task Force X defeated the Enchantress and her brother once and for all, the team got their prison sentences reduced as a result.[1] However, Harley was broken out of Belle Reve by the Joker.
