Description

A new era of Wonder Woman begins as best-selling, Hugo Award-winning and Ms Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson makes her return to DC!

Far below Themyscira, Ares, the God of War, has been imprisoned for generations, repenting his past sins. But his new cellmate Grail may have an unexpected effect on him...and the plan they've come up with will change Themyscira--and the world--forever! When Wonder Woman rushes to eastern Europe to rescue Steve Trevor from a mission gone wrong, she'll find herself face to face with a very new, very different God of War.

It's true, Ares has been reborn on Earth--but has he changed for the better? Of all the role models in the world, he seems to have chosen...Wonder Woman?! Diana and Steve Trevor better watch their backs, because Ares isn't the only creature of myth to find his way to Man's World...and he's not the only resurrected Olympian either.
