Totally devoid of conscience or morality, Darkseid is a godlike being who desires nothing more than complete control of the entire universe. In WONDER WOMAN: SECOND GENESIS, the brutal ruler of the planet Apokolips looks to achieve his malicious goal by usurping the power of the Olympian gods. Descending upon Wonder Woman's fabled Paradise Island, the ruthless tyrant begins a campaign of destruction which ends with the defeat of the mythological deities. Now with Darkseid's plan coming to fruition it is up to Princess Diana and her Amazon sisters to save their gods as well as the universe from annihilation.
This trade paperback collects John Byrne's landmark story-arc from Wonder Woman #101-105 in which Wonder Woman, having relocated to Gateway City to make a fresh start, clashes with Darkseid.
