Synopsis for "The Fifty-Second Visit"

Slabside Prison, Antartica

Diana visits Moon Robinson, also known as the former killer Mayfly. She was one of the hitmen engaged by Hamilton Revere to take her dead or alive, and Diana defeated her and put her in cell. Diana tells her she also understood she was in pain and needed to talk, and Wonder Woman also thought she could be a better person than the one she fought. Visit after visit, without never missing once their encounters, Diana is successful in making Moon open herself. She tells her about her difficult past, the fact her parents never wanted her and the struggles of being an hemophiliac. She tells her about her parents death and life inside the turmoil of social services. She had to become a warrior to defend herself, and she had to be alone, just like she was since the moment she was born.

For the first time, Moon is treated with respect and love by someone, even if that person is the one who put her in jail. Diana starts opening herself up to Moon as well, telling her about a fight she had in Mexico with the Kingbutcher, where the people she rescued mistrusted her for the first time in years. In one of Diana's last visits before Moon was free to go, the criminal Inversion tried to attack Diana, who was strangely surprised by the attack: Moon rescued her, stopping Inversion, then she asked Wonder Woman how the hell was it possible for a guy like that to take Wonder Woman by surprise. Diana shares with Moon a deep pain for the death of her aunt and first trainer, the amazon Astarte, killed in an heroic confrontation against the forces of Hades. With this solidifying even more their bond, Diana, on her fifty-second visit, waits for Moon on her invisible jet: the girl spent her time in jail and now she's free, and as a friend Diana came by to give her a ride home.
