Synopsis for "Come Back To Me, Part Ten: Battle Royal"

As Diana and Sibella fight, the latter reminds Diana that her powers are faltering but she states that it's a battle of skills. Sibella states she won't win by skills alone and tells her to just let her end her quickly. Diana tries to convince the alien princess to stop fighting, but fails and after clashing swords with her, inflicts a deep wound at her back. The counselor D'Velos tells the other members but gets told by Baeloc that they'll be from Sibella's tyranny if she is dead and reminds him of the massacre of the royal family. As Baeloc reminds him of their deal with the Light Lords, D'Velos is unsure they'll carry it out and calls of the fight, telling Rigg to do what was originally planned.

Rigg aborts the fight and hits Sibella with a bright flash, returning her memories. She then destroys him with his own gun and demands to know who cut her. Not getting an answer, she tells the guards to lock Diana up with her comrades as she watches the flashback to review what happened. Diana is later imprisoned with others and is glad to be reunited with Steve. She then tells them that Sibella was probably behind their situation from the start. As they plan to get out, Jonah suggests someone pretending they have stomach cramps.

Etta decides to pretend she has stomach pain and failing that pretends she is pregnant. When it doesn't work, Diana smashes the door as her powers return, knocking out the guards. She tells everyone to go while she deals with Sibella. The alien princess meanwhile reviews the events starting from the island and leading to the fight at the arena, priding herself for orchestrating the whole thing while making herself forget who she was. As she plans another adventure, Diana confronts her and state she will be stopped.

Synopsis for "The Villain's Journey, Chapter Four: Rescue From Within"

This story is reprinted from Justice League (Volume 2) #12.

In the Valley of Souls, members of the Justice League each encounter the spirit of a deceased loved one. Wonder Woman is confronted by the spirit of Steve Trevor, who tells her that she's too late. The spirits attack the League, and Graves appears. He tells the League that he plans to destroy the Asuras' temple, releasing all the spirits, and reuniting the world with their dead loved ones.

Graves is then shot from behind, by none other than an alive Steve Trevor. With Trevor being alive, the League discovers that the spirits are not of their loved ones, but demonic parasites called Pretas, which feed off the living's pain. They were using Graves as part of their plans. Graves clung to the story of empowerment by his deceased family because he could not face the their deaths. Green Lantern and Cyborg weaken the Pretas, while Aquaman delivers the final blow, successfully exorcising the demons out of Graves.

The next day, Wonder Woman visits Steve Trevor in the hospital. She laments that she has put him in danger, but Steve becomes irate - he was a soldier for years before she and people like her appeared. She offers her apologies, but Steve rebuffs them, demanding that he be left alone.

In the Watchtower, the Justice League reflect over the events that occurred during their conflict with Graves. Aquaman and Batman argue about Batman's ability to lead the team, but Green Lantern short-circuits the argument by saying he will take the blame for the fight and leave the team publicly. The League fails to convince him to stay, as he teleport away. They discuss Graves' degenerative condition, which they realize must have come from exposure to Apokoliptian substaces during the Darkseid Invasion. Aquaman vows that the team must become better.

On the roof of a builing in Washington, D.C., Superman finds Wonder Woman. He explains that the League got worried after she never came back from the hospital. She explains that she feels a loneliness, and she and Superman discuss their similarities. The two feel a mutual attraction and kiss.

In Belle Reve prison, David Graves has been incarcerated. He is visited by the facility's warden, Amanda Waller. She says that the Pretas have delayed the effects of his condition somewhat, and hands him a typewriter, suggesting he write a book while in prison entitled "How To Defeat The Justice League".

David Graves begins working, titling the book "The Villain's Journey" instead.

Synopsis for "The Others: Chapter Six"

This story is reprinted from Aquaman (Volume 7) #12.

Mera searches through Shin's things, hoping to find a clue about his whereabouts. Suddenly, she finds a phone and answers. The caller is the Operative, who informs her about the Others. Mera replies that Black Manta took Ya'Wara's relic and kidnapped Shin. Agreeing to meet with the Others, Mera swims to the Operative's plane. Gathered with the Others, Mera enters into an argument with Ya'Wara, both saying that Arthur has not been himself ever since they met the other. The Prisoner says that Arthur went to the Dead King's tomb to kill Manta.

At the Dead King's tomb, Manta has just uncovered the Dead King's Scepter. He then orders his soldiers to kill Shin, but Aquaman quickly attacks. Manta uses the scepter, easily pinning Aquaman down. In that moment, Mera and the Others appear on the scene and engage Manta's forces.

Believing Shin to be responsible for this, Ya'Wara attacks him, but Vostok stops her, saying that Shin is truly regretful for what happened. Suddenly, Manta tries to attack Aquaman from behind, but Vostok takes the blow, getting mortally wounded.

Manta and his soldiers escape and Vostok dies, but not before recognizing Aquaman and the Others as his true friends. Mourning his friend's death, Aquaman swears vengeance on Manta.
