The Council of Wonder Women
Our story picks up where our last few episodes left off: with a damaged and cracked Source Wall. Look, that’s a HUGE deal. The Source Wall surrounds and contains the multiverse, so when it stops working, universes stop working. In Wonderverse, five universes have begun to merge, and it will be catastrophic to all of them if the boundaries cannot be repaired.
Enter Wonder Woman. And Wonder Woman. And Wonder Woman. You get the idea: the Wonder Woman from each of these universes must step up to heal what’s broken. Despite their differences, they will found the Council of Wonder Women, led by Nubia (Earth-23).
Most notably joining Nubia on the council are two other Wonder Women, both new to DC Universe Online: Red Son Wonder Woman and Flashpoint Wonder Woman.
Red Son Wonder Woman
In Red Son Wonder Woman’s universe, a slight delay sent Superman’s ship to land on Earth not in Kansas, but in the Soviet Union, and the world was never the same. The Wonder Woman there rises up in support of Superman, defending the common people against injustice and oppression. She is bold, pragmatic, and cunning, and exactly what the council needs.
Flashpoint Wonder Woman
Flashpoint Wonder Woman is altogether different. Unlike most incarnations of Wonder Woman (who are kind, benevolent, and strong), Flashpoint Wonder Woman is cruel, tyrannical, and, okay, still really strong. She is dangerous, a murderer, and warmonger in her universe. But with her universe at stake, too, what role will she play? What decisions will she make?
Old Gods, New Gods, New Old Gods
As the Source Wall deteriorates, so too do the powers of the gods. Desperate and not accustomed to threats, the gods realize they can sustain their powers by accumulating fragments of the Source Wall itself, even as it crumbles into the merging multiverse.
The New Gods of Apokalypse, led by Darkseid, Grail, and Orion, are quick to seize upon the opportunity. They strike not just to maintain their power, but also to deprive power from their rivals.
Not far behind them, capricious and dangerous themselves, are the Old Gods of Olympus, led by Zeus, Hera, Athena, and Poseidon. Poseidon is all-new to DC Universe Online, rising up from the ocean depths to reclaim his power in Atlantis.
So, here’s the problem. You’re going to need those fragments of the Source Wall if the council is going to have any chance to save their universes. And the gods are rarely reasonable.
How do you convince the gods to give up their fragments, and with them their power? Spoiler: it’s not going to involve a whole lot of talking.
