Nikos Aegeus appeared in Washington D.C . He attacked an airplane at National Airport and attempted to extort 100 million dollars from the U.S. Superman and Wonder Woman were in the vicinity to help those on the attacked plane.
He destroyed a railroad partially to split the forces of the two. Superman took the oncoming train and Wonder Woman attacked Aegeus. Superman stopped the train and came to aid Wonder Woman. He was there in time to see a lassoed Aegeus get punched out.
