A week ago DC revealed the penciled cover to EARTH 2 issue 8 by artist Yildiray Cinar. Aside from the fact that the image is absolutely stunning, the picture also left us curious as to the identity of the woman in the picture. In fact, many of you debated over the character's identity. Could it be Donna Troy? Is it a new female character? Earlier today we caught up with writer James Robinson on our weekly Comic Vine podcast where he revealed the identity of the mysterious character and yes, you have definitely seen her before.

The Last Amazon is Fury, and you will see how her name relates to her Amazon heritage as well as her relationship with Steppenwolf. - James Robinson

Interesting! That still doesn't explain what her relationship to the Amazon's is. Did she know Wonder Woman? Did she know Donna? Does Donna even exist? This is definitely an answer that leaves us with a lot of questions. What do you think of the big reveal?

Thank you,

It had to be Fury, it's Earth 2, it had to be.

I wonder if she's still Wonder Woman's daughter and Steppenwolf raised her?

@SmashBrawler:

Aww man, you beat to it. :( I was just thinking that she might be WW's daughter.

Then again, she could also be a version of Wonder Girl all grown up.

I assumed she's Big Barda, while she was the lead fury from Apokolips

OR

Earth2 Donna Troy before she turns good

Earth 2 is the best team book out there that's not called "Uncanny X-Force".

Ah. Not who I hoped, but it's more of a suprise than Donna or Artemis and her name is very appropiate.

I don't know who Fury is so this means nothing to me. Nor do I care. I'm just waiting for the rest of the JSA to show up.

@zackattack529: I get the feeling Uncanny Avengers will be the "Justice League" of Marvel NOW (and I don't mean that in a good way). I could be wrong though, but I'm sticking with Earth 2 anyway.

Yaa see i get that feeling too! haha The reason why is because Uncanny Avengers is going to be the flagship title of MarvelNow meaning it is going to have a strict editorial staff. I loved Remender's X-force but any tragic event that would happen in the book would have very minor reprecussions on the x-men universe, there fore he was able to do soo much with the characters and story. On Uncanny Avengers im not sure if he will be able to do the same, also im not cassadys biggest fan...so yaa i think i am going to stay with Earth-2 for awhile..untill Hickman's Avengers or Thunderbolts comes out.

Was kinda hoping that was gonna be Donna but this is interesting too, even though I'm only vaguely familiar with Fury's pre-Flashpoint origin and history. With her involved with Steppenwolf it explains a lot for why the events of the first issue of Earth 2 happened.

Well presumably if she is a Fury she is Helena Kosmatos or Lyta Hall.

I'd be all for Donna and Wally making a niche in/on Earth-2, but they're not Golden Age characters.

My guess that whip character from the female furies, maybe she becomes a hero on Earth. Or perhaps not. I was hoping that it would turn out to be Donna Troy who takes over as the new Amazon warrior, and maybe use her Titan Godhood as part of it, make her like Thor on Earth.

So was Robinson refering to this Fury, WW's Earth-2 daughter, or Helena Kasmotos?

@notarandomguy: I understand not wanting to read DC when they no longer publish your favorite characters, but why would the revelation that the Earth 2 "Last Amazon" is going to be based on an actual Earth 2 character with an Earth 2 code name rather than an Earth 1 character be the breaking point? I just don't get that at all.

I was right!

If it is Donna, that would just be weird. The Earth-2 comic book is nothing like the original Earth-2 and the continuation of its continuity on New Earth but at least, so far it only used Earth-2 characters. Donna has never been an Earth-2 character.

I am pretty sure she is called Fury, as an homage to the original Earth-2 character and at the same time, because she appears to be a Female Fury on that cover.

Probably an Amazon that Steppenwolf captured as a child and trained to become a Female Fury.

Robinson really is not as subtle as he thinks he is when he says that :

The Last Amazon is Fury, and you will see how her name relates to her Amazon heritage as well as her relationship with Steppenwolf.

I don't know why but I thought your comment was awesome

@Rugor: you're right, I'm overreacting, and its good to see that they're taking characters from Earth 2 to actually be in a book called Earth 2, maybe they'll keep re-inventing those from the JSA we love or minor characters from the all star squadron, even the Infinity (i don't what else it was called) like villains and allies and everything :D

you should be happy with this. WW was one of the original members of the JSA going back to 1944

Yes, Cassie does exist. We're talking about Cassandra Sandsmark here.

I feel like he's being a bit... sneaky... by saying Fury. Is this a new character who uses the moniker "Fury" or is she actually Lyta and therefore Diana's daughter? I hope it's the latter.

I'm hoping she's Lyta and not Helena Kosmatos. There are similarities in costume to both Lyta and Helena so it's hard to tell which one it is. She could be an amalgamation of both of them as James suggested he was doing with characters on the podcast.

If this Fury is Wonder Woman's daughter who is her father? Did Steve Trever exist in this reality? Or is it someone else entirely?

If Bruce has a grown daughter on Earth 2, then it would make sense for Fury to be Diana's daughter from pre-Crisis, with her mother's powers. If all the other elements of the Kirbyverse are starting to show up, it would make sense for the Female Furies to do so as well, and that's where Lyta's been, and why she wasn't killed with the rest of the Amazons.
