Wonder Woman has taken a retreat to Themyscira(Paradise Island). She speaks to the ossified body of her mother about her relationship with Superman. While Wonder Woman enjoys Superman's companionship, she is uncertain about his need to be less than he is, in her opinion. The transmogrified Amazons of Themyscira, once warriors, now snakes, lead Wonder Woman to Doom's Doors, which have been broken, and a creature from Tarturus has escaped. Wonder Woman tracks down the creature and slays it, then reseals the doors using her enchanted lasso. As she leaves Paradise Island, Cyborg raises her and alerts her to Superman needing assistance. Superman has unwillingly allowed the release of not only Zod, but Faora, two of the Phantom Zone's worst criminals.

Wonder Woman is able to contend with Zod, but Superman allows Faora to get the better of him, and Wonder Woman needs to intercede again. Zod gains a hold of Superman, and breaks his arm.

Wonder Woman passes out, but awakens when ghost soldiers stand before her with ill-intent. The ghost soldiers blast her, but Superman has regained enough strength to destroy the soldiers weapons.

A submarine belonging to the Tower attempts to collect Doomsday, with disastrous results. Returning to London, Clark and Diana enter a nightclub and reconnect, while dancing the night away, enjoying the time they have together while it lasts... and it seems that it won't, as the last image shown is that of a massive grey fist, with spiked knuckles punching upward from the ocean.

Wonder Woman is looking for Clark Kent, and her first stop is Cat Grant. Diana tells her that she, Diane Prince, is Clark's girlfriend to gain quick access. Cat relates her last encounter with Clark, in which he acts very much like a troubled man. Wonder Woman next encounters Lois Lane, who is about to be arrested by the US military for breaking and entering. Diana displays a new ability, the power to speak telepathically to soldiers and compel them, and thus secures Lois' release. Lois informs Diana that while Clark made a queer call akin to a drunk dial-up, she hasn't seen Clark in weeks. The Batman is Wonder Woman's next stop. Batman tells Wonder Woman that Clark is changing into another Doomsday or something like it. He asks Wonder Woman if she checked Clark's home. Wonder Woman responds that she has checked the Fortress of Solitude, and Batman leads to check Clark's apartment, something she hadn't thought on. Wonder Woman enters Clark's apartment to find it damaged, dark, and disheveled. Clark speaks to her in a lurid tone, making accusations and attempting to goad Wonder Woman into action. Clark continues to accuse Diana, saying that she doesn't believe he's good enough to be with her. Clark then tells Wonder Woman that she'll have to kill him, as he's slowly transforming into something resembling Doomsday. She refuses and Clark lashes out. Batman arrives to assist, but Wonder Woman has him leave off so that she can get through to Clark. Wonder Woman implores Clark to use his mind, to control the disease as it respond to his will. It takes a hideous effort of will, and a scream that shatters windows for streets that abound, but Clark sets himself to right. However, Clark tells Diana that while he was successful, what was possessing him isn't gone, and it's waiting to come back.
