Ares’s son Phobos, the God of Fear, unleashed Ixion on the unsuspecting public of Boston. Phobos lured Hermes into a well-concealed trap, stole the messenger god’s caduceus, and broke the chains that bound Ixion to his giant wheel of torture. Along with the Gorgon Euryale, Ixion ran riot through Boston, destroying much of the city’s waterfront and killing hundreds of innocent bystanders.
Summoned to his side by Hermes, Wonder Woman used her incredible strength and speed to battle Ixion to a near standstill. Stalemated, the Amazon Princess picked Ixion up and flew him away from Boston and to the empty beaches of Martha’s Vineyard. There Hermes bound Ixion in the serpents of his magical caduceus. Refusing the torture of such imprisonment for another thousand years, Ixion summoned the full firepower of a squadron of US fighter planes upon him. Ixion’s body was blasted apart, and the behemoth fell dead into the ocean, his penance paid at long last.
