Synopsis for "A Fire In The Sky!"

General Gerard Kohler of the United States Air Force orders Colonel Steve Trevor to fly a new bomber over an uninhabited stretch of the Caribbean Sea, ostensibly to impress foreign dignitaries. In truth, Kohler is being manipulated by Ares, the bomber is armed with a nuclear warhead, and the "uninhabited" stretch contains Themyscira; Ares seeks to destroy the Amazons before their champion can confront him, and Trevor is the only pilot skilled enough to circumvent the mystical storm-clouds protecting the island.

On Themyscira, the Gods present Diana with one last tool: an unbreakable golden rope forged from the very material of Gaea's girdle. Hermes then descends to the island and takes Diana to Ares' former kingdom, Areopagus. Here, Diana encounters the war-god's daughter, "Mad" Harmonia. Though Harmonia does not know her father's exact location, she gives the young Amazon a strange amulet, promised to be "the key to Ares' secrets".

Before Diana can press Harmonia for more information, Colonel Trevor breaks through Themyscira's defenses, forcing her to return to the island. Soon after, Trevor's copilot - another of Ares' minions - launches the warhead. Before the warhead can land, however, Diana catches it with the Gods' golden rope and flings it away from Themyscira. The warhead explodes seconds later, leaving the Amazon nation shocked but unharmed.

Meanwhile, Trevor struggles against his maddened copilot, eventually crashing the bomber into the sea. Annoyed at his failure, Ares burns the copilot alive; Trevor himself, ignorant of Ares' machinations and too pacifistic for the war-god to directly influence, remains intact. Then, on orders from Themis, goddess of justice, Diana pulls Trevor from the sea and brings him to the Amazons' Healing Isle. Though several Amazons object to a man in their midst, the Gods praise Diana for her unwavering piety; after a final round of farewells, Diana begins her journey to Man's World, the unconscious Trevor in tow.

In Man's World, Trevor's disappearance is quickly noticed by several figures, chief among them his best friend Matthew Michaelis, his attache Etta Candy, and base commander John Hillary. When Kohler's smoldering corpse is found on-base, the trio begin to debate Trevor's possible guilt, not knowing they are being spied on by Ares' sons, Phobos and Deimos.

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 1985-1986 maxiseries which completely reset the continuity of the entire DC Universe, all of DC's major characters and franchises needed to be updated to reflect the changes in the events of their lives. Multiple story arcs were put out to explain these rebooted versions of popular characters.
