Synopsis for "Kill the Story"
Penny Black tells her origins as the hero Britannia. Penny served aboard an ultra high tech British destroyer and when something went wrong on this ship the ship's technology fused with her body. The British Navy sees her now as an unexpected experimental breakthrough and they build the Britannia armor to focus her powers.
The story returns to the present, where Bobbie Stephenson, the human alter-ego of Miss Hyde, has betrayed the group and alerted the Amazonian Furies. Bobbie holds a knife to Lois' throat promising to slit it if the resistance doesn't surrender to the Amazons so that Bobbie can get help with her transforming into Hyde problem. As the resistance is surrendering Hyde begins to take control of Bobbie's body and with the threat to Lois out of the way the fight between Grifter's group and the Furies begins.
During the fight Penny and Lois slip away to look for the Britannia armor. They are entering a door where the armor is when Penny is shot in the back with an arrow by Artemis. Lois tries to give Penny time to put the suit on by taking on Artemis. As Artemis is about to kill Lois Britannia flies in and flies through Artemis' body creating a bloody mess. Britannia begins to fly out to rescue the others when Lois sees something that might be useful.
Britannia flies through London, attempting contact Grifter when she is ambushed by Wonder Woman. We get a good fight scene that ends up with Britannia getting the upper-hand and showing Wonder Woman one of the Amazon's prison ships. Wonder Woman is shocked that the Amazons have been taking prisoners and says she knew nothing of this. She then begins freeing all of the prisoners. Meanwhile, Lois is transmitting the story of what is happening in London to all of the world and she is pleading for help for the resistance. This scene ends with a few armed Amazonians sneaking up on Lois, and in the frame from a distance we can see that there is an explosion.
This story ends with all of the recently freed prisoners joining the Resistance and the group is finally able to take the Amazon's head on.
