Synopsis for "Chapter One: Gimme a Summer Break"

This story is reprinted from DC Super Hero Girls Free Comic Book Day 2017 Special Edition #1.

Bumblebee joins Wonder Woman in fighting the Double Dare twins, causing them to run away. The two heroes chase after them and soon nab them, before returning Silver St. Cloud's purse and turning the two robbers over to the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit. Batgirl and Bumblebee feel joyous as they were the last villains they needed to deal with, making Wonder Woman if there are others on the loose. Supergirl however after checking up on Arkham Asylum and Belle Reeve states there aren't any prisoners on the loose, while Batgirl finds that the police also have put up no bulletins, which means they're free to go on a summer vacation.

Wonder Woman feels reluctant about leaving Super Hero High and suddenly feels a breeze of wind. She however soon realizes that it was created by someone running away from the heroes at a quick speed. As they catch up to the mystery person, the discover that it's Diana's Olympian half-brother Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Hermes states that he was sent to deliver a message to her from Zeus at noon, but he has a habit of arriving early which is why he was running. As the clock strikes 12, Diana opens his parchment and finds an invitation from Zeus to stay at Olympus for the whole summer. Diana finds it strange as Zeus usually ignores her and she's never spent so much tie on Olympus.

When Hermes asks Diana about her answer, she states she'll think about it. He responds that her half-siblings would like to get to know her more, including Siracca who's also staying at Olympus and is quite like how she was at her age. Diana later informs her mother about it, leading the latter to ask whether she will go. Diana states she feels unsure even though she wants to get in touch with her Olympian heritage, before suddenly hearing a knock on the door and finding Hermes standing outside who tells her that she can bring whoever she likes. He responds that he's been told to wait for her answer when she asks if he's spying on her and goes back to drinking his coffee from Capes & Cowls Café. This leads her to ask if he paid for it and he runs back to do so.

Diana later asks her friends and schoolmates if they'll go with her, but no one except Bumblebee agrees. As the two head to her invisible jet, Hermes tells them that he can simply teleport them there. As the girls arrive on Olympus, he leaves them alone for a while and promises to meet them again during dinner. The two are suddenly hit by a gust of air as a voice shouts about not wanting Ambrosia.

The divine feast is however interrupted when Ares emerges out of the ground. Bumblebee and Diana proceed to battle him, but Zeus gets between them and stops their brawl.

Although Zeus defuses the situation, finding out that the evil god of war is her half-brother confuses Diana. Bumblebee states that every family has a black sheep, but looking at the Greek gods, she doesn't think so and starts feeling out of place Diana feels among the gods. She decides to call Supergirl who's staying at the Kent Farm, teaching Big Barda and Lady Shiva how to run a ranch farm properly. Barda accidentally drops her phone in a bucket of water while informing Supergirl and the latter states she'll call Diana herself later. She continues teaching the two on how to run a farm and they eventually grow accustomed to it..

Batgirl meanwhile is visiting the British Museum, accompanied by Katana and Beast Boy. As son as she picks p Diana's phone call, a guard tells her to remain quiet and she is forced to cut the call. An alarm soon starts blaring and the three heroes accompany the guard. He tells them that the the "Golden Olive Branch" has been stolen from the Greek Hall and using the CCTV footage, they find a hooded woman with a souvenir shop bag walking away from the robbed showcase. The schoolmates are initially unable to find her, but Katana spots her distinctive dress amidst the crowd. The three run after her throughout the city and she runs into the Big Ben tower to shake them off her tail.

As the schoolmates run after the thief in the clock tower, she drops a grenade containing sleeping gas. Only Batgirl stays awake and follows the thief. As she climbs the giant clock, she gets kicked over and is forced to grab one of the clock hands to avoid falling to her death.

Synopsis for "Chapter Three: Fun in the Sun"

Beast Boy rescues Batgirl from falling off the Big Ben's clock, but Katana states that she did discover a map the thief dropped. Zeus meanwhile claims to his godly children that he suggested the idea of using a Trojan horse to Odysseus, but Aphrodite states that it was his own idea. Zeus states that it was his since it was thought up in his realm, while both Siracca and Diana leave the room. Both of them feel out of place and Siracca states that being a human-god hybrid makes her a weird person. When Diana denies it, she recounts how she had to leave Syria with her mother towards Greece. As they were sailing with other refugees in a boat, it was hit by a storm. This however caused her to instinctively use her powers and make the storm vanish.

Siracca's display of power led to others seeing her as a freak and she started preferring spending time alone. She was full of joy when she received an invitation to spend her summer on Olympus with her father Zeus, but doesn't think she fits in among the Olympians. Diana sympathizes with her and states what he endured was harder than her own experience. Siracca wishes she had a friend, leading Diana to assure her that she and Bumblebee will become her companions. Meanwhile in London, Katana suggests that their thief might be a collector rather than someone stealing Greek artifacts for money, as she didn't steal the more valuable ones. Batgirl states they must search museums housing Greek artifacts, she finds that the map the thief dropped is of the Louvre. Katana and Beast Boy feel joyous about going to Paris, but Batgirl reminds them that their business is serious.

Back at Mount Olympus, Diana, Bumblebee and Siracca engage in various activities along with the Greek gods and soon come to form a friendship. Meanwhile at Super Hero High, Harley decides to check her friends' social media updates after the theater camp and finds all of them having fun. As she starts feeling alone and bored, she thinks of sending a message about missing them, but instead decides to send one claiming she has fun, though privately wishing they'll be back soon. At Olympus, Zeus while showing the family album to Diana's friends gets interrupted by Ares, who reminds him about their scheduled chess. As he assures that they'll play soon, Diana asks him about a hooded woman in a picture. He states that it is his daughter Strife, but they haven't seen each other in years after a break in their relation.

Later at the Louvre, Batgirl, Katana and Beast Boy find none of the Greek artifiacts on display missing. Katana however states that most museum artifacts are usually stored away from public eyes. Batgirl hacks the door panel of the storage room and Katana tells Beast Boy to be quiet when he starts talking about becoming hungry after viewing so many artifacts. As they enter into the room, they are quickly caught by the police who accuse them of stealing the shield of Ares. It's however revealed that the shield was stolen by Strife, who's the same hooded thief that stole from the British Museum.

Synopsis for "Chapter Four: The Hunt"

Diana tells her mother that she misses her and will meet her soon as half of her vacation is over. Zeus arrives and tells the girls to get ready to play more games on Olympus, as Ares has organized a Chimera hunt for their family. He however warns that they can only capture it and whoever does will receive a reward. Ares informs everyone that they can't carry any kind of devices capable of tracking in the hunt, before proceeding to collect them from everyone. Meanwhile in Paris, James Gordon berates her daughter for being caught by the police and for being involved in superhero activity outside Metropolis. Barbara however states that she can't quit the case and it's huge. Relenting, he tells her to be careful about it.

Hawkgirl calls up Batgirl and informs her about the artifacts the mysterious thief stole in London and Paris. The Shield of Ares is said by Greek myths to make the one carrying it invulnerable from harm, but the Golden Olive Branch and the Amulet of Harmonia nullify its effect. Batgirl realizes that the thief's next target is the amulet and learns from Hawkgirl that it is on Themyscira. When Diana doesn't answer her call, she and her schoolmates decide to go to Greece. Meanwhile at Themyscira, Strife battles Hippolyta and the Amazons while trying to steal the Amulet of Harmonia, but gets overpowered. Causing a feud between the Amazons with her powers, she soon makes off with the amulet while Hippolyta is distracted.

The Olympians, Wonder Woman and Bumblebee are unable to find a way to catch the Chimera on Olympus, before Siracca uses her wind powers to discover its location. After she guides her friends to where it's hiding, the beast attacks the three girls. Bumblebee escapes from being swallowed by its snake head, but this causes it to accidentally bite its own neck while trying to get her. Diana takes the unconscious Chimera to Zeus who states that Panacea will heal it and how its three heads show that people are strongest together, but if they turn against each other they will be destroyed. He then reminds the girls that he had promised them a reward and proceeds to give gifts to the three girls.

To Bumblebee, Zeus gives mystical headphones which cancel out not only noise, but magic and voices of the sirens. To Siracca, he gifts a wind chime that can alert her to a danger. Lastly, he offers to make Diana a full-blooded goddess, but she feels unsure. He summons Janus to help her decide and she gets taken to the Choice Dimension where he tells her that she will gain greater powers, but will have to leave Super Hero High, which shocks her. Janus questions whether she didn't have fun on Olympus and she responds that she did, but gets interrupted as a strong gust of wind blows them away. The two discover that Ares and Strife, who are being served by Siracca, have come to retrieve the Amazon princess.

The other Olympians along with Siracca are ordered by Ares and Strife to take down anyone who might try to stop them. When Diana and her friends try to prevent them from leaving, Zeus jumps in front of Ares' bolt to guard her, but survives as he's immortal and states he can't leave Olympus.

As the Olympians teleport to Metropolis, Bumblebee tricks Hermes by having him deliver a message to Smallville, something he is bound to do, and tells the other heroes to hold onto him while he teleports there. Later in Metropolis, Strife creates conflict between people to empower her brother while the other Greek gods and Siracca attack the superheroes. Meanwhile, Hermes transports the heroes to Smallville where they tell Supergirl, Big Barda and Lady Shiva about Diana's half-siblings Ares and Strife creating conflict in Metropolis. Diana apologizes to them for her family's actions stating maybe they can't trust her too, leading her schoolmates to state that they won't judge her for what they did and will always be there for her.
