The militants had sped up the moving process with some of them starting to leave the town. It was clear that they were retreating; however, there was enough firepower to repel any threat to them. Wonder Woman, still on the rooftop, stealthily went around the square until she saw Petrovich leaving the pub. A white car was awaiting him while the driver was smoking and talking to a soldier. He threw the cigarette away once he saw Petrovich walking towards him and entered the car. There were still too many men for Diana to capture him. She couldn't do anything to get to him without alerting every man in the area; but, she decided to attack anyway.
Wonder Woman landed on the hood of the car hard enough to damage it beyond use. The soldiers quickly surrounded her with guns pointed at her while Petrovich nearly fell to the ground in surprise. She got off the hood and drew her sword intended for a bloody fight. Yet, Petrovich told his men to stand down to prevent further bloodshed. His men, at first, were confused until they were told again to lower their guard. "We already lost so many men thanks to her," Petrovich said in disgust towards Wonder Woman.
"Your men were killing civilians and officers," Diana responded while she was slowly pulling her sword away. "You will answer for your crimes, including Iron Man's death."
"While I might have committed crimes today, murdering Iron Man wasn't one of them," Petrovich answered.
"What do you mean? There was footage of-"
"His armor seems to be strong enough to withstand the missile but not the person inside. He's still unconscious if you want to free him." Petrovich explained and saw that she remained skeptical. He got closer to her and pointed at the Lasso of Truth. "If you don't believe me, then use it on me, and I will tell you where we put him."
Wonder Woman hesitated to tie the lasso on his wrist because she was suspicious of him. Yet, she followed through with his suggestion and asked him about the current whereabouts of Iron Man. Petrovich calmly compelled with the lasso and answered her question, "I ordered my men to place him in the pub. Now, how about we make a deal."
"No deal, Petrovich. You might not have killed Iron Man, but you are under arrest for unspeakable crimes." Wonder Woman interpreted him and grabbed his hand, which caused his men to draw their weapons at her. She looked at them and added, "You will be wasting your bullets."
Petrovich tried to resist arrest, but seemly gave up and accepted his fate. "Men, it's alright. Surrender now, and we will live another day to fight for the liberation of our home," he said towards his men with no emotion to his voice. Now, she was even more suspicious of his motive; yet, she effectively ended the civil war with his arrest. While she was dragging him inside the pub, his men were confused about their leader's sudden surrounded and began dropping their guns.
Once inside The Old Fox pub, Petrovich pointed to the room that Iron Man was being kept. To ensure that he won't escape, Wonder Woman grabbed his head and smashed it against the counter. Then, she grabbed a bar stool and ripped off one of its metal legs and bent it around his leg and the railing beneath the counter. Now with him secured, Diana was able to focus on rescuing Iron Man. She approached the door and slowly opened it to get a peek of the room. It was when she saw the familiar red iron leg and quickly opened the door. Iron Man was genuinely alive after all.
Wonder Woman rushed over towards him and untied him from the chair; but, he wasn't moving or responding whatsoever. That was when she decided to take off the mask piece of his helmet to see if he was breathing or not. But, she was met with a dummy instead of a real person. The reveal caught her off guard that she dropped the mask piece to the ground. Both she and the lasso were tricked for the first time in a long time. And with that, she planned on confronting Petrovich about it before taking him to the nearest cell. When she turned around, however, Diana was met with a wall of television screens.
At first, there was nothing on the screens besides static until one of them showed footage of Diana beheading a soldier from earlier in the day. Then, the monitors started to show more footage of her killing person after person. She didn't understand how someone could have managed to film her without notice, and why would someone do it. Suddenly, she heard a voice behind her.
"It's always amazing watching you in action primarily how easy you make decapitating someone. Of course, you are Wonder Woman! You make lifting cars look as easy as a pushup."
"Who are you?!" Wonder Woman drew out her sword and pointed at the person.
"Woah! Chill out, Diana! I was just complimenting on your technique. I mean, who taught you to do that? I bet that it was your father since nobody else would have-"
"Last chance, who are you?"
"Alright, then. Keep your secrets." the person put their hands up and walked closer towards Wonder Woman. "Even know I have a surname, I'd prefer if you call me Aladdin. It's the type of nickname that you usually never forget."
