Black Adam and his superpowered partner, Atom Smasher, have just survived an assassination attempt in the middle of Shiruta, the capital city of Kahndaq. Meanwhile, outside of Shiruta, only a few miles south of the city, in the village of Anobi, Wonder Woman has come to Kahndaq to face Black Adam and make him answer for slaughtering almost 100 people from the village of Anobi.

“Diana, I do not understand why you want to go back to Shiruta to see Black Adam. I have witnessed his power. His ruthlessness.”
“As have I young Sarita which is why I am not going to pick a fight with him. I am going to make him answer for what he did to your village and to your people.”
“How will you do that?”
“Black Adam is not the only one with power.” Wonder Woman lets a sly smile cross her lips.
“Come with me Sarita.” Wonder Woman leads Sarita to her invisible jet.
“Where are we going Diana? You walk as if you have a destination but there is nothing here?”
“Are you sure?” Wonder Woman puts her hand up. To Sarita, it looks as if she is waving, to no one. Then Sarita hears a chime and a flash of light coming from Wonder Woman’s hand. Wonder Woman steps back and a door opens and steps extend to their feet.
“What is this Diana?”
“This is my jet. Come.” Wonder Woman takes Sarita’s hand as the pair walk up the steps. Sarita rubs her eyes to see if she is hallucinating. She is walking up a set of steps in to a door that has opened from nothing.
“It was a gift from my mother and who’s history is too long to enter in to now. But it is how I came to your country this day.”
Sarita has never been in a car let alone a jet, especially and invisible one. She walks up in to the fuselage of the jet with her mouth agape and eyes wide.
The young woman sits without looking at the seat. Her eyes are transfixed across the entire ship. Wonder Woman slips in the front of the jet and emerges with food.
“Here. You look as if you have not eaten in days.”
Sarita is snapped back to her senses at the aroma of the food. She begins devouring the food Wonder Woman brought out for her.
“Sarita, I want you to stay in the jet while I am gone. Its invisibility will cloak you from sight and keep you safe. You are welcome to anything here.”
Through a mouth full of food, “I am staying with you.”
“I believe that to be a bad idea Sarita. While I am hopeful all of this can be resolved peacefully, if the need for action arises, I may not be able to keep you safe.”
“I am coming with you. I can help you get to Shiruta quickly and quietly if need be. I can help you.” Sarita looks up at Wonder Woman. Her eyes convey a sense of strength to the Amazon and also of defiance.
“I sense that if I tell you to stay you would only follow me.” Sarita nods emphatically through gulps of the food. Wonder Woman hesitates for a long time.
She looks directly at Sarita until eventually, “When you finish, we leave.”
