Action / Adventure

A Kidnapping

It had been a week and a half since I had brought the twins to see my mother and the other Amazons.

It was the last day of the second week when I received a call from the Watchtower. At that point in time I was watching the queen of the Bana playing with my children. We have been in an extended time of piece between the two tribes. After I had appeared before the senate, introduce my children to them, we sent a message to the Bana to invite them to get their first look at the twins.

As I was watching my mother and the other queen were playing with my children I received a call from the Watchtower.

“Watchtower, to Wonder Woman.”

“Wonder Woman, go Wally.”

“Diana, We have received a big message from Hawk Girl.”

I asked, “What does Saoirse need.”

He answered, “Apparently, there has been a kidnapping on Thanagar.”

I said, “OK, what does that have to do with us?”

He said, “Diana, it’s Rex.”

I said, “I can only imagine that John and Shayera are going crazy.”

He said, “John does not know because he is back on a secret mission for the Guardians.”

I said, “I can only guess Shayera reaction.”

He said, “You would be correct. She wants to go out hit someone.”

I said, “I am on my way.”

I called my mother over and gave her a report.

I said, “Mother, there are bad things afoot on Thanagar and Shayera needs my help.”

She asked, “What happene?”

I said, “Someone has taken her son.”

She asked, “I am guessing that she wants to go out herself because she still has the mind set that she is still in the league.”

I said, “Yes she does.”

Mother said, “She has to understand that a queen can’t just go out an put herself in harms way because she is the most important person in the government.”

I said, “This is why they are sending for Clark and me. They want us to find Rex.”

I asked, “Mother, would you mind keeping the kids for me?”

She said, “Why, of course, my daughter. How long are you going to be gone?”

I said, “I do not know, but I will send Barbra and others with supplies for the children.”

She said, “Go.”

I went back to the portal that would take me to the embassy.

When I arrived at the embassy, I said, “Watchtower, Wonder Woman here.”

J’onn answered, “Watchtower her, go ahead Diana.”

I said, “Site to site transport to Wayne Manor.”

teleported into the Bat-Cave to find Alfred dutifully doing his job. Being that he was keeping the cave clean and running.

He asked, “Miss Diana, how can I help you?”

I said, “Alfred, I assume that you know what is going on with Shayera on Thanagar.”

He asked, “What happened?”

I said, “Someone has taken her son.?”

He said, “Oh.”

I continued, “They have sent for Clark and myself to go and investigate.”

He asked, “What about master Stewart?”

I answered, “He is off on a secret mission for the Lantern Corps and is under radio silence.”

He asked, “What is it that you need?”

I said, “I need you to go shopping for me. I need you to go and buy some baby supplies.”

He asked, “how much should I get?”

I said, “I think that a good starting point would be two weeks worth.”

He said, “Yes, Miss Diana, but where will they be staying?”

I said, “They will be staying on Themyscira.”

He asked, “Yes Miss Diana.”

I went on, “Please send the supplies with Barbara. If she is not available, see if you can get Huntress or Black Canary.”

At that point, Barbara and Dick returned from where ever they had been.

Barbara said, “Hi Diana, what is going on.”

I told her and Dick about what happened with Rex and what I was doing with my children. When I asked her to be the carrier of the supplies to Themyscira.

She said that she would be honored to do it.

Dick had asked me if I wanted him to if he wanted him to come with Clark and I, I said that I did not think it was needed because we knew where the dissenters are located and how to get in and out with minimal casualties.

There was little argument with me so I decided that I would go to the Watchtower.

When I arrived, the first thing I did is went and found Black Canary. I found her and Helena with their babies and having a play date. Dinah with Deanna and Helena with Hugo.

I said, “Dinah, I assume that you know about what is happening with Shayera and Rex?”

She said, “Yes.”

I continued, “Well, I have decided to leave the twins with My mother on Themyscira and have told Barbara that she is to bring supplies to the island.”

She asked me, “What does that have to do with me?”

I said, “If Barbara is busy, the responsibility will fall to you.”

I looked at Helena and said, “If Dinah is busy, then it falls to you.”

They both looked at me and Dinah said, “Thanks for the responsibility, I am honored.”

Helena nodded as well.

After I had talked to Helena and Dinah, I went off to find where Kal was.

He was in the hanger preparing one of the Javelins for the trip we had to take to Thanagar.

I went to him and asked, “How are the preparations coming along?”

He answered, “I am just about done her and we will be able to leave within the hour.”

I said, “I will go to the commissary to grab a bit to eat and then I will be ready to leave.”

He asked, “Could you please bring me back a sandwich and a drink?”

I said, “Why, of course I will.”

Even before Bruce died, Kal was my best friend. This got us in trouble sometimes because there were people that thought there was something more between us. The problem for those people is they did not know about Kal’s relationship with Lois. More importantly, because of my identity of Diana Prince, they had no earthly idea that I was dating Bruce Wayne. When they saw Bruce and Wonder Woman dance in Paris, they blew it off because of who they thought he was.

As I was returning to the hanger, Kal was just finishing up with the preparations. He was programming the Javelin with the star maps we would need to get to Thanagar

I said, “Kal, I have returned and I have your lunch.”

He looked up and nodded. So, I sat down and waited patiently until he had finished up with the Javelin.

Five minutes later he came and sat next to me, picked up the tray, and began to eat.

As he was doing so and between bites he said, “After we received the call about Rex, I turned to Wally and said “Knowing how Shayera thinks, I can safely say that her advisers are having to tie her down to keep her from living up to “Less talking more hitting” that she had stated during the Lex-Brainiac incident.”

We both laughed because we knew this was true.

We knew that her advisers were having to deal with her infamous temper. After years of dealings with her, we knew that we did not want to be on her bad side and she was as stubborn as my mother and myself could be when either one of us thought we were correct in what we were doing.

Then we left.

As we were traveling, we had a nice little conversation.

I asked him about his twins and what he would do when the grew old enough. He said one of the first things he would do was to take them to the fortress and educate them on their heritage. At that point, he would tell them about their powers and ask them what they wanted to do. It they decided to go into either one of the family businesses, then he would see about getting them the proper training.

Then he asked me the same question. I gave him the same answer. When he asked me what I would do about the fact that one of them was male, I said that was up to my mother. He asked me about training them. I said that I would leave this up to Philippus for she was the one who trained me. He asked me if it would force them to remember what Hercules had done to them. I said that I was not sure. On the one hand it is a part of their heritage but on the other, it had nothing to do with them personally. After all, why bring them into something that had nothing to do with them.

As we traveled to Thanagar, as it was a long trip, we decided that we would split the flying time between us so we each could get rest we needed so that we could be fresh to go to look for Rex.

When we arrived, we were ushered into the throne room where were witnesses to what we assumed was many confrontations between Shayera and her advisers. It was, again, her trying to make the argument for her to go to on the mission.

“...but it should me that leads the mission.”

Advisor 1 said, “Your majesty, we can not afford to lose you because the tenuous republic we have could disintegrate.”

I went up to the adviser and said. “Excuse me, let me try to talk to her.”

He stepped back and the rest of them to allow us to take her into her ante-chamber so we could talk.

Kal started by saying, “Shayera, I know what you are feeling. If I were in the same situation, I would want to go after the people who would have taken them and believe me, Lois would want her father to have the full force of the military to go after them. It would take a lot for me to be talked of it, and without Bruce, it would be harder for people to talk me down.”

I could actually say that he was correct because he was always the most rational of everyone in the league. Even if it were our children, he would refrain from investigating it himself. Sure, he would have Barbara, Dick, and Tim investigated, but he would not do it himself because he would fee that he would be too biased.

I said, “Shayera, I agree with Kal. I, myself, would want to go after the people. He would have to talk me down as well. Our situation would be made more explosive when my mother would ultimately get involved. It would just be Bruce trying to talk her down, I would have to do it as well.”

She somewhat calmed down after I had spoken and said, “I understand what you are saying and know what you are saying is the truth but I am frustrated with the situation.”

If I am not mistaken, according to her aides, this was the first time she has admitted to be frustrated with the situation.

Shayera said, “You know who I am and my theories on apprehending criminals. I like to hit first and ask questions later.”

I said, “I understand your feelings, but you have to let Kal and myself do the job for which we were asked to do.”

She nodded.

We, then, went back into the throne room and were briefed on the situation.

The same adviser that was trying to talk her down was ready to give us a briefing.

He said, “We have found out where they have set up their base. It is in the most unforgiving part of our planet. It is going to take considerable effort to get the prince back.”

I said, “I think that Superman and I can get the job done and I think that all we would need some of your special forces.”

Shayera said, “I am ordering my advisers to give you what you need to get the job done.”

So the adviser took us to where the troops were located.

He spoke to them and asked, “Which of you wants to help us go and retrieve the prince?”

Every single one of them stepped forward and then the adviser continued.

He then said, “It will not be feasible for us to take everyone her on the mission. We want the best of the best, the top one-hundred soldiers.”

After a couple of days of intense training for the freshly chosen one-hundred soldiers, we were off to do the mission to retrieve Rex.

It took us a good twelve hours to get to where we knew the rogues had taken the baby.

When we arrived at the site, Kal had made the decision to split our forces. We called General Boaz and Kal said, “General, here is the plan. We will be splitting our force in half. Your half will be attacking from the front in a diversionary attack while we will take our half and circle around back and go in from there to rescue the prince.”

He nodded and walked off the split the force and start his planning for the diversionary attack. Kal went over and took our half of the force and started to outline what we would do to get in the back door.

We call over Colonel Brit and told him to gather our half of the troops to tell the plan.

Kal spoke up and said, “ Ladies and gentlemen, as you know we are here to rescue the prince and bring him back to his mother, the Queen. Here is the plan, as you might have noticed, we have split the forces in half. The General’s half will be a diversionary attack while we go in through the back. We will do two things at the same time. We will again split the force. twenty-five will be the ones to secure the facility and twenty-five will be with us searching for the prince.”

So we made the splits and took our twenty-five and started the search for Rex.

As we went from room to room, we found there were rooms that were dedicated to baby products and others were dedicated to weapons. Kal, several times, made the decision to use his heat vision to melt the weapons.

Sure, there were some arguments about whether or not to confiscate the weapons but Kal put his foot down and said that him melting the weapons was what we are going to do.

It took us an hour, but we finally found the room where they were keeping the prince. We took the guards and put them in a room and Kal took a metal door and melted it shut to keep the in there where the would not get in our way.

At that point, we received a message from the other twenty-five of our part of the force said they had secured the building. Also, General Boaz said that he and his soldiers had subdued the people outside.

We went into the room and found there were a handful of nurses and nannies that were taking care of little Rex.

When we entered in the room one of the nannies came to us and asked us to not hurt them because they were just doing the job they were paid to do.

As it turns out, all these people wanted was for Shayera to step down from the throne.

It was over within two hours and we were on our way back to the palace.

When we arrived, and Shayera saw Rex, her face lit up and she beamed a smile.

She finally understood why she could not go on the mission to rescue her son.

On thing that was different was that John had returned and he, too, was relieved that his son was back where he should be.

We had to stay another couple of weeks because Shayera wanted us to monitor the trial. As we did this, we noticed that the Thanagarian press was there and Kal could not resist going off to see how they did their job.

It was nice to see that Shayera was not being the judge in the trial. She has stood by the new constitution of Thanagar and between the point when we left and returned, had appointed several judges to the recently reconstituted Thanagarian courts.

After the trial, the offenders were sentenced to life in prison. Because she had lived on earth and saw the detrimental effects of criminal getting off on parole and committing crime. She had a law passed that outlawed patrol.

Since Kal and I wanted to get back to our respective children, we left immediately after the trial.

As we were flying back Kal asked, “Do you want to write the report or shall I.”

He asked me this because he knew it was a long haul back and we would have to have something to do to pass the time.

I said, “I will write the report.”

He sat down at the controls an started to fly back and I began to writ the report. It took me a couple of hours to put it together in the way that either Mr. Terrific or J’onn would accept.

After I had finished, I went to the cockpit and told Kal that I was going to take a short nap. He told me he was fine with it.

When I woke up. I went to him and asked him if he wanted me to take over for him. He said he would and I did.

When we had returned, we turned the report in and headed to the teleporters to return to our respective families.

After I landed at the Manor, I went directly back to the Themysciran embassy and returned back to the island to see my children. When I returned, I found it was one in the morning so I went into to my room and laid down and got some sleep.

About six hours later, I woke up and found there was a cart in my room with food on it and in my bath chamber, there was a warm bath waiting.

I, immediately headed off to the bath and took a long soak. When I had finished, I felt much better and ate. I dressed and headed off to find where hi children.

I went to the throne room to see if my mother was there, they were not. I found that Philippus us substituting for my mother and Donna had taken the twins out for a walk.

I had to pass a myriad of my amazonian sisters and asked them where my mother was. They had pointed me to one of the many hot springs on the island.

When I found my mother and the children the big surprise cam when I saw that Artemis was with the children, in spring and having a very good time.

My mother saw me and asked, “Does Shayera have her son back?”

I said, “Yes she does.”

She said, “Care to elaborate.”

I says, “It appears this about his particular group thought the had better ideas about who should be queen and felt this was the best way to affect the change.”

She said, “Obviously, they were wrong about this.”

I said, “Yes, mother.”

She said, “I can understand why she would be beside herself with her son being kidnapped. I do not know what I would have done if the same situation had presented itself when you were that age.”

I said, “I know what you are saying, if there was a point in time where the same situation presented itself with the twins, I would also be going absolutely crazy.”

So, I allowed Artemis to continue to play with my kids for another hour or so at which point I decided

it was time for them to go down for their nap so I could prepare to go back.

On the back from Thanagar, I had decided that it was time for me an the children to move back into the Manor. I felt that I was finished my period of mourning and now was able to return there to live. It was not just that, it was the fact that Alfred was aging and was starting to show that his abilities in running the household were slipping. This could not be allowed to happen because Dick and Tim needed the manor to be run at peak proficiency for them and Barbara to be able do what they do for Gotham.

I have decided take a couple of my sisters with me to help out at the manor. My feel was because my sisters had kept our secret for thousands of years and they would be able the manors secrets. I had to make sure that one of them could cook. It was not like we could have the cook a the embassy could come over.

So, the group went through the portal to the embassy. I had decided to take four, not including the cook, to come with me. Their names Agapio, Klarissa, Daphne, Evangeline, and Kit.

To say that Dick, Barbara, and Alfred were surprised to see me was an understatement. It got to them even more that I had, not only, my twins, but I also had five other amazons with me.

I said that I would explain why I had these other women with me after we all got settled in at the manor.

few days after I had moved in, I had asked Dick. Barbara, and Alfred if they would mind if I were to expand the manor. They said they had no problem with it so a few after, we had brought in the top architects to draw up plans for the expansion. I wanted to do this because I knew that this would be the main place that I was going to raise my children. Sure, there would be times that we would go visit mother and have play dates with the children of the league. I have also decided that I would like them to spent some time working on the farm in Smallville. With that last wish, I would have to talk to Kal about it.

It took about a month before the addition to the manor was done. It was mostly bedrooms and bathrooms but there was a library there as well. In that library was a grandfather clock like the one that was in Bruce’s study. This clock led down to a monorail that would lead to the Batcave.

We had them build another twenty-five rooms and ten full baths and fifteen half baths. I made sure that the library had, not only, some of the masterpieces of literature from man’s world, but it had some copies of books from Themyscrira.

A month after all the building was done, I had Lois, Helena, and Dinah come. With them came their children Sam and Ella, Deanna, and Hugo. I was also surprised when Donna dropped by for a visit. She said that things were slowing down for her and that Ferdinand said hi.

We had all taken to the floor to play and talk with the kids. We were in the family room. It was about the time for the news so we turned on the tv.

Lois said, “Look, there is Summer. Apparently, she has traded up, she is now a TV reporter. I will have to make it a point to talk with her soon.”

We turned the TV up to see what was going on.

Apparently, the Joker had broken out of Arkham. He went to the Gotham Natural history museum and shot someone.

All we thought of it was that Barbara and Dick will catch him and return him to Arkaham. We continued to listen until we were shocked to hear of who he shot. It was Barbara. She was being rushed to Gotham General for an emergency operation.

Dinah said, “I will go to the hospital to see what I can glean. It was then that Alfred came into the room for he had been the cave helping to orient my other amazon sisters to the layout of the place.

He said, “Ladies, what can I get for you.”

Lois said, “Alfred, you have not seen the news, have you?”

At this point, Donna returns as do the rest of the amazons.

I said, “The Joker has just shot Barbara.”

Helena asked, “Where is Dick?”

Alfred said, “Dick is in Japan. There have been some thefts at the Wayne Tech subsidiary there.”

It was then we received a call.

Alfred picked it up and said, “Hello.”

We looked at him.

He continued, “Yes, Miss Selina, I know about Barbara. You are already out there looking for clues .where are you? Midtown.? I will tell them.”

Then my JL communicator went off.

I answered, “Watchtower, Diana here.”

Vixen said, “Diana, have you seen the report.”

I said, “Yes I have and we already have someone looking for clues to the whereabouts of the joker Diana is headed off to Gotham to sit the first shift with Barbara and Tim, and Donna are headed out to help Catwoman look for clues. I will be coordinating from the cave.”

Vixen said that this was fine.

So, I sat down at the Bat-computer and became the coordinator.

Alfred had decided to go and relieve Dinah at the hospital. When he arrived there, he found Commissioner Gordon had already relieved Dinah. He called me and let me know about it.

it was time for them to go down for their nap so I could prepare to go back.

Vixen said that this was fine.

So, I sat down at the Bat-computer and became the coordinator.

Alfred had decided to go and relieve Dinah at the hospital. When he arrived there, he found Commissioner Gordon had already relieved Dinah. He called me and let me know about it.

few week had passed and we were running our heads into a brick wall, and then it happened, Miss Rocket had awoken from her coma.

Since Kal new her somewhat better than anyone. We had him go to talk to her. He left and went to the hospital. An hour later, he returned,

He said, “It was Slade, Luthor, and Circe.”

It was then that I gritted my teeth. I really do hate that woman. She has a past with my amazon sisters and I. In fact, the last time w fought, she turned me into a pig and Bruce had to sing for me.

We now had the who but we still did not know the why. This was until we found the Penguin tied up in his office. I would have to say that this is a big mistake because the Penguin is all about the money. It does not matter how he gets it, legal or illegally. Thanks to the fact that Dick was now in charge of the Wayne fortune, we had all the money we needed.

Suffice to say that we payed him to his liking and he told us what we wanted to know.

He said that they were operating on a high-speed, high-tech boat in international waters. They were off of the Gotham coast. He also said that the boat was being cloaked.

We gave Mera a call and asked her if Aquaman would help us search for the boat. She said she would have to get back with us. A few hours later, she did just that. She said he would help us out.

It took him a couple of days, but Aquaman did find the ship. We knew that it would probably be a fast one and easily moved. We asked him to place a tracking device on in so we could follow it to where ever it was docking.

The Yacht spent the next few days cris-crossing the Atlantic until it ended up docking right off the coast of Greece.

So, the first thing that I did was to contact my mother to give her the heads up on the possibility of an attack on Themyscira. I felt that with these people docking off of the coast of Greece, there could a danger of Luthor and the others would somehow get the chance to attack Themyscira.

It had been decided that Tim. Kal, Question, and I would head to Greece to see what was happening.

When we arrived there, we fond where they we docked and had a meeting there. It was decided that Kal and I would go into Athens to search for them and Tim a Victor would board the ship and search it for relevant for us to use in the investigation.

As it turns out, they has split up and were hitting different places that were information hubs. We had no idea what they were searching for and what information they want.

We had decided to meet at the Parthenon to see what we found out.

What the information said is they were looking for something magical. It was decided that Tim and Victor to continue their search for the group and Kal and I would take a trip to Themyscira to do some research on what we had find out what kind of magical implement they were searching for.

When we arrived, we were met by Philippus and were taken straight away to see my mother.

My mother asked, “Daughter, what are you doing her.”

I said, “We found that Luthor and the people with him, including Circe ar looking for what is known as the super wand. Do you know anything about this?”

My mother said, “I am not sure. I think, if the Amazons know anything about it, it would be in the archives.”

So Kal and I went to the archives to look for the information.

When we arrived at the archives, Mnemosyne was surprised to see us. When we asked her for the information, she said she did not know but if the information exists, it would be deep in the ancient historical text of my people.

We spent a couple of weeks searching for the information on the we have come to know as the ultimate wand. After our searches for it on Themyscira we went back to America and went to see Dr. Fate.

Again, we found nothing. The only things we came up with was rumors. Some of these state that this was one of the most evil magical implements in the history of the world. It is infested with a very strong demon.

We knew that Luthor and his group needs to be stopped so the demon would not come out and destroy the world. According to what we found out, Luthor has not idea what his machinations to defeat the Justice League.

After our meeting with Doctor Fate, we headed back to Greece to see what the others had. When we arrived Tin and Victor were waiting for us. It was as I feared, they had found nothing and Luthor has gotten away and were back on the seas but we could still track him with the tracker which Arthur had put on the boat.

The next place he stopped was Japan.

We left Athens went straight away to Tokyo.

We landed in Japan and got lucky when we caught Slade at the Japanese Natural History Museum. There was a fight and he was defeated when Tim and I put our ropes around him.

After we questioned him, we turned him over to the Japanese police for he had actually robbed the museum.

With the information we received from Slade, we found that Luthor is still looking to get Braniac back. This is scary because there is one thing Brainiac wants is information and once he receives it, he will destroy the world.

We left Japan and lo and behold he was heading back to Metropolis. He was going home. We radioed Dick and told him to head to LexCorps Gotham branch to see if he could get information about the big plan.

When we arrived back in Gotham, Dick was waiting for us and he had a rather dower look on his face. It appears there was no information at Lex’s Gotham headquarters.

We sent Question and Tim ahead to scout out what was going on in Metropolis. Kal and I wanted to see our children and I wanted some rest.

I went down to the cave to enter my information into the bat computer. When I arrived down there, I found that Barbara was sitting in the big chair and doing some searches.

We talked for a while and then I went back upstairs and found that Kal had left and returned with Martha. We said hello and I went off to bed.

The next day I got up and prepared to go after Luthor. We had found out that he and his group were headed off to Kasnia. The first thing I had to do was to call Queen Audrey to warn her of what was coming.

After I had gotten dressed, checked on my children, and went to the cave to get an update, I went to the Watchtower and made the call to Kasnia.

Audrey had, about a year ago, purged the governmental dissidents that were causing her troubles. These were the same types of people who had been used by Vandal Savage in his failed attempt to take over the world.

After I had warned Audrey I, immediately, transported back to the cave. When arrived, I found Kal had returned from taking his children back to the farm for his mother and Ben Hubbard to take care of his kids.

We made the decision that the strike force that would go after Luthor would be Dick, Kal, Oliver, Dinah, Vixen, and I. We went to the Javelin, got in, and took off for Kasnia.

We landed in Audrey’s courtyard and disembarked from the Javelin. We were ushered into her throne room and she came to me and gave me a hug.

I asked, “So, do you have any idea where Luthor might be?”

She said, “I think he might be in the north. The problem is it is a pretty rough part of the country and it seems that some of the people are supporting him and people like him.”

Kal asked, “Do you know where, exactly, he is?”

Audrey said that she thought he might be and a particular village. We went into her war room and she took us to the map on the wall. A few years ago, I had Bruce, with Kal’s help, give Audrey’s war room an update into twenty-first century. I had him computerize it and now she knew who was doing what in her country.

She wrote down the name of the village and gave us a copy of a map that would take us to the village.

We went back to the Javelin, got in, and took off toward the aforementioned village.

As we came to the village, we were starting to take flack.

Kal and I left out of the Javelin and went to take out the anti-aircraft guns.

I saw Kal’s eyes glow and knew what he was going to do. He was going to use his heat vision. While he did this, I hovered , I was using my Bracelets to deflect the flack and use it to destroy the guns.

We had decided that Kal and I would be air support and take out the anti-aircraft guns. It was then I noticed there were plans and also there were planes coming up on us. Kal and I had to, also, take out the airplanes.

It had been decided that Batman and Green Arrow would go in and try to retrieve Luthor and his crew. Black Canary and Vixen would take ground forces.

After Kal and I had taken out the guns and the planes he went to help Dinah and Mari mop up the ground troops. I went inside to help Dick and Oliver take Luthor and Circe. As I arrived, I noticed that Dick an Oliver were on their way out with a Chihuahua. The dog had Luthors suit on and it was then I figured out that Circe had turned on him and used her powers on him. She, also, had the wand.

After we had finished, I had given the embassy a call.

I talked to Donna.

I said, “Donna, pleas go and warn mother. Circe is after her again.”

Donna said, “I am on my way.”

I said, “I will meet you there, but get some help as well. I suggest you go to Zatanna, and Inza.”

I went to Dinah and Mari to come with me as well.

I thought to myself, we just might need Kal’ strength. Since my mother had, had the rule changed for Bruce, I could bring anyone I thought would be able to help us.

When we arrived it was much like what had happened with Faust. There were buildings on fire and assorted animals were moving around. I looked at the and assumed that they might just be some of my sisters. Since I am able to converse with animals. I went up to a brown horse and put my hand on its neck. As I started to talk with it I found that it was Philippust and she said that Circe had my mother had changer her into a bird.

We went to the palace and found her sitting on my mother’s throne. I did not like this one bit. I saw that Inza and Zatanna were casting a spell. As it turns out, it was a spell of protection. It was designed to protect us from.

When Circe had cast her spell, It did not work and she was angry. It was then Hera appeared.

She said, “Sorceress, I hereby take away your power.”

She disappeared.

It was obvious that Circe’s punishment would be left to whomever would want to take her to the court.

My mother thought about this and factored the fact that Circe had committed crimes against Man’s world.

I had, had Kal and the rest of the taken the wand back so it could be given to Dr. Fate for safe keeping.

He called Donna and I back to her throne room to give us he decison.

She spoke, “I have had time to think about what I want to do with Circe and how to discipline her.”

I looked at her not sure of what to expect. I knew that there were times in the past that we have tried to incarcerate her but that has not worked and I have a feeling that she is at her wits end with Circe.

The Queen continued, “We have tried everything that we can to teach her a lesson but it has not worked. I know that she has committed some pretty heinous crimes in man’s worlds. I have decided that I want to turn her over to the League so they can set in motion her trial. My hope is they can find some way, that we have not thought of, to punish her.”

So, Donna and I took her back to the Watchtower.

I called a founders meeting to let then know what had happened and what mother said. At the meeting, I had an idea.

I said, “We know that no matter where she is tried , she will be found guilty.”

J’onn looked at Kal, and the back to me and he had a smirk on his face.

Wally asked, “What’s the thought Diana?”

I said, “We have, on Themyscira, tried to jail her and she has found a way to get of and commit more atrocities. Kal, would it be possible to put her in the Phantom Zone. The idea here is to put her someplace where there is one slim way out and she will not have the power to get at the way out.”

Kal said, “This is highly irregular, after all it is only supposed to be mean for Kryptonians.”

I explained to him how, at her wits end my mother was.

He continued. “Let me finish my thought. It is irregular to do this but I do not see anything wrong with it but I will have to consult with Jor-El.”

I told him he had time to do this because they would need to put her on trial and I had chosen to put her on trial in Kasnia for I knew that Audrey would not be adverse to the idea.

Well, a few weeks later the trials for Luthor, Slade, and Circe had began. It did not take long for them to take place and, of course Slade and Luthor wet off to their respective jails. Then there was Circe.

After her trial, Circe had no idea what was coming in terms of her sentence. She thought she would be headed for, at best, a Themysciran cell, and, at worst, being put into the underworld to be tortured by Hades.

When the sentence came down and she was to be headed to the Phantom Zone. It had to be explained to her what this meant.

I went into another room and prayed to Hera.

She appeared.

She said, “My daughter, what is it that you want?”

I said, “We have tried and sentenced her to go to the Phantom Zone.”

She asked, “What is this Phantom Zone?”

I asked, “You know of Superman?”

She said, “Yes.”

I said, “He is not from this planet. He is an alien. The Phantom Zone is a prison used for the worsr of the criminals of his home planet. I am telling you that to say this. I wish for you to give her, her powers back. She will need them to survive.”

Hera said, “I fear giving them back because she could use them to escape from this prison.”

I said, “Don’t worry about this for the only way to get out of it is if Kal, Superman, lets her out himself. There is not even a shot of the gods to get her out of it, that includes Ares. We will make sure that she is knocked out so she can’t use them to get away before we send her to the Phantom Zone.”

So the moment before we were to send Circe to the Phantom Zone, Hera appeared. She, then, gave her, her powers back and we sent her to the zone.

It had been a few weeks since the incarcerations of Luthor, Slade, and Circe and things had been relatively quiet.

I had made a few big decisions. These decisions centered around my children. I would, first, go into simi-retirement from the league. I would relegate myself to being monitor duty. Sure, if something real big and serious were to happen I would, of course, help, but in terms of the minor things, I would come. I cut back my time at the embassy from six days a week to four. I also felt that I would like to have some help as Wonder Woman.

I went back, along with the children, to Themyscria for a visit with my mother.

We met in her chambers and spoke.

I said, “I have decided to go into simi-retirement to raise my children.”

She said, “This does not surprise me.”

I continued, “I have notified the League that I will not being on as many missions and I will, basically, relegate myself to monitor duty. I have also decided to cut back my work load at the embassy to four days. I have already let Donna and the staff at the embassy know about my decision.”

She asked, “What are you going to do about being Wonder Woman?”

I said, “I have a novel idea. We will hold a competition with the will being Wonder Woman as well as me. In reality, what the idea is, is to have two Wonder Women.”

Mother said, “That is a very interesting way to look Being the champion.”

I said, “I know that I will have to, not only, talk with the senate, but I will also talk with the goddesses as well.”

My mother sent for Philippus and told her that we would be needing the senate into session. After she left, mother and I prayed to the goddesses. Hera, and the others appeared and I told them what I wanted to do.

Hera said, “Myself and the others will adjourn to discuss these new developments.”

Fifteen minutes later, Philippus appeared and said that the senate would see us tomorrow.

An hour after Philippus left, Hera reappeared and said. “There was debate between all of the amazons patrons and we have not problem with you want to do.”

This was the first big test to pass in how I wanted to do things.

Both my mother and I retired to our respective bedchambers. I went to sleep.

I woke up the next morning and took a bath.

As my the queen and I ate, Philippus arrived and said, “The senate will see you ate your convenience.

A half hour later we were in front the senate explaining what I wanted. After about an hour of explaining the situation we adjourned to the queens senatorial sitting room to let them debate and vote.

Three hours later, they called us back in and I was very nervous. The sister that was the head of the senate told us that it was a close vote but because they understood what I was trying to do. She said that they had voted to allow this to be done and they were ordering a tournament to take place.
