In the final issue of FLASHPOINT: WONDER WOMAN AND THE FURIES, the origins of the scheming plans behind the war of the Amazons and the Atlanteans are revealed. When Diana learns how she has been betrayed, it’ll be up to her to convince Aquaman to retreat his troops and stop the looming war. But if all goes according to Orm and Penthesilea’s plans, Arthur will be too blinded by his need for revenge to listen.
When Wonder Woman discovers that someone has stolen her identity and is using her name to commit acts of evil, she’ll have no choice but to confront her in battle. But can she stop this criminal look-a-like before her name is completely slandered?

She’ll have to shed her Wonder Woman costume and succeed as simply Diana Prince in order to set them free.
There was once a time when Aquaman and Wonder Woman were to be married. For political reasons, it made perfect sense: with their powers combined, together they could conquer the world.
