Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor play the part of Antony and Cleopatra, repeating the scene where the original actors were struck down. As they kiss, Countess Draska Nishki throws the bandages she has been using to hide her identity, over Diana, including the lasso of Hestia (lasso of truth), that compels the wearer to follow the instructions of the person holding the lasso. The Countess admits that only she knows the antidote of the sleep juice she had slipped to the stars of Magnum's production, to put him out of business. The Countess tells Wonder Woman to help her make sure Magnus Studios will never finish their picture.

The lasso of Hestia was forged by the god Hephaestus from the Golden Girdle of Gaea that was once worn by Antiope, sister of Hippolyta. It is so strong that not even Hercules can break it and is given to Diana after Hippolyta consults the Goddesses. Originally the Magic Lasso was given to Wonder Woman when she returned to Paradise Island. Then William Moulton Marston later retconned the origin story in Wonder Woman #1 when it was shown that Wonder Woman got it just before she left Paradise Island.

Empowered by the fires of Hestia, the lasso forces anyone held by it to tell the absolute truth. Furthermore, simple physical contact with the lasso can be enough to have this effect such as when Barbara Ann Minerva attempted to swindle it from Diana, but was forced to confess her intentions when she held the lasso. It is also infinitely long, and can lengthen depending on its user's desire. The fires are said to even be able to cure insanity, as they did in the case of Ares, God of War, when he attempted to incite World War III. He renounced his plan when the lasso showed him that such a war would not only destroy all life on Earth as he wished, but also any potential worshippers he sought to gain from it.

The lariat forces anyone it captures into submission; compelling its captives to obey the wielder of the lasso and tell the truth.
