The Cult of Ares: Act I • Winter Soldier AU (Set)

Before the Justice League unite to face Steppenwolf, Diana taps Bruce for help investigating a rash of chemical weapons strikes. They discover who is responsible — a transnational paramilitary force working in the shadows for decades to sow the seeds of WWIII. In the presence of Athena, Diana realizes that her old nemesis, Ares, is responsible.

Diana becomes obsessed with the Cult of Ares. So much so that she begins to have prophetic dreams about them. The night terrors drive her to the brink of paranoia. She is certain that Ares has been resurrected and is leading the Cult to some sort of doomsday attack.

When a top secret transfer of chemical weapons for disposal is interrupted by the Cult of Ares, Diana and Bruce suit up to stop them from stealing the weapons. But the Cult releases a highly toxic gas, forcing Bruce to save the civilians at the expense of the weapons. Diana goes after the leader — who she believes is Ares — only to recognize through a gas mask a pair of unforgettable blue eyes. Bruce’s research confirms it. The leader of the Cult of Ares is none other than Steven Rockwell Trevor, the love Diana lost a century ago.
