Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 9"
Later on, Ares provides dialogue as Wonder Woman deflects several airborne rockets and attacks multiple planes and tanks. Ares comments on how Diana left Themyscira on a mission of peace, but that "she does not look peaceful." On the ground, Diana comments on how peace "sometimes needs to be fought for." Diana explains to Ares how Qurac has ignored the neighboring country of Jusdal's request for a ceasefire. Wonder Woman flips over a tank and says that she will stop once Qurac stops shelling Jusdal.
Ares questions Wonder Woman's intent behind siding with Superman, asking if she truly believes in his cause as she reflects bullets off of her armor and cheek. She commands the soldiers to drop their guns and leave. Ares then asks Diana if she believes she can replace Lois Lane as Superman's wife. Diana compliments Lois, saying she "was an incredible woman," but realizes that Ares fears the union between herself and Superman. Diana then mocks Ares, saying Ares would become famished in a world with no conflict. She calls him "Dreaded Ares, God of Ponies!"
Ares then confronts her, saying that he is fueled by death and destruction such as she has wrought. He attempts to kill her, but Superman intervenes and breaks a horn on Ares' helmet. Diana then cuts off and takes one of Ares' hands, saying he can have it back when he "can be trusted with it." Ares threatens Diana, and says he will prevent her children from ever taking their first breath as she stabs Ares in the chest.
Diana explains that gods don't die, only fade, and that they should leave Ares to fade while they talk to the Qurac government about a ceasefire. Because of that, Ares fears the union between the Kryptonian and Amazon, saying that if Wonder Woman were to take away Superman's restraint, "the world could not fight against that."
And in a world with no war, he would become the God of Ponies.
