"The Enemy of Both Sides, Part Four": The Battlefield, the conflict between Qurac and the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall
Synopsis for "The Enemy of Both Sides, Part Four"
The Battlefield, the conflict between Qurac and the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall
Fighting against her sister Artemis, Diana manages to wrap her in the Lasso of Truth, making her reason: she understands that Faruka manipulated Rustam and her sisters to start a conflict that would consolidate her power while eliminating the nomad nature of her people. After this confrontation, Artemis sides with Wonder Woman in a fight against Rustam and they do beat him, even after he seemingly destroyed the Bow of Ra, thanks to Diana's Lasso that once again lets the truth come out: Rustam admits that he started the conflict for a personal vendetta, giving to Faruka what she needed to trigger a war that is unnecessary.
After stopping the conflict before it could really start, Artemis faces Faruka with the intent of killing her, but Diana and Atalanta change her mind, letting the Amazons as people decide who should rule. While not forcing Faruka to abdicate, they decide she should rule with Atalanta at her side, in an union between modernity and tradition. Artemis is disappointed by the choice, and decides to leave the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall having learned her world is much bigger than theirs. Seeing how much Artemis' own path is similar to hers, Diana takes a strong decision: she gives to Artemis the Lasso of Submission used by Superwoman of Earth 3. Diana kept it in her custody since the Justice League defeated the Crime Syndicate and thinks that Artemis could be the one to give this weapon a new meaning: after renaming it the Golden Promise, a bond between sisters, Wonder Woman and Artemis leave Qurac ready to continue their adventures.
