Synopsis for "A Duel of Gods"
Osira, an Egyptian "goddess" from another galaxy in another dimension, has captured and imprisoned the Justice Society including Wonder Woman in transparent pyramids. Her German henchmen have unwisely not confiscated Wonder Woman's Magic Lasso, so she uses it to spin herself like a drill bit and gouge a trench into the floor, then tunnels out of the cell.
Osira is preoccupied with attempting to invoke the spirit of her late husband Hefnakhti, and install it in the person of Steve Trevor. Wonder Woman attacks her, and to defend herself, Osira releases the imprisoned Justice Society of America (Atom, Johnny Thunder, Mr. Terrific, Sandman, Starman) from their glass pyramids, under her mental domination, and has them attack Wonder Woman. Johnny directs his Badhnisian Thunderbolt to lend Starman a hand against Wonder Woman, but due to his inept phrasing of the order, the slyly rebellious T-Bolt takes the opportunity to kayo Starman instead. Wonder Woman then takes Starman's Gravity Rod and blasts Osira with it. The alien goddess is cosmic-energy-powered herself, thus this is effective against her.
Osira and Diana have a heart-to-heart dialogue about war, peace, brainwashing, and tyranny, and soon the two foes shake hands and make peace. Then Osira disintegrates, as her spirit rejoins that of Hefnakhti, vanishing into the void of eternity. Thanks to Diana's Magic Lasso, Steve Trevor and the Justice Society heroes are soon no longer hypnotized. The JSA, minus Starman, head back to their headquarters, while Starman stays behind to reassemble the Giza Sphinx (which had gotten smashed during his battle with Wonder Woman). The war continues.
