It's been more than two years since Geoff Johns, Francis Manapul and Jason Fabok's Justice League: Darkseid War event ended with the shocking tease that Diana Prince had a mysterious, long-lost twin brother somewhere out in the world. This twin, we would come to learn, was born also born on Paradise Island, but he was taken away just as soon as he had arrived. Now well into adulthood, Diana learned the truth about her lost sibling, though it would take more than a year and a half before she would finally find Jason.

As writer James Robinson took over the Wonder Woman title, so too did Jason's story begin in an arc that felt slightly familiar. Jason had spent most of his life as a fisherman, hiding his Greek god powers from the world. When Wonder Woman finally found him, Jason befriended her -- but it turned out to be a ruse. He was actually in league with Grail, Darkseid's evil daughter, and turned on his sister. However, this alliance quickly abandoned, choosing instead to stand alongside his twin sister rather than in opposition to her.

Over the past few months, Jason has gained a new superhero costume along with the drive to help people thanks to his sister's influence. His heroic mettle was finally put to the ultimate test when the Dark Gods arrived on Earth and finally, in Wonder Woman #50, Jason proves he is just as heroic as his sister -- but it comes with a heavy price.
