Exclusive: First Look at EARTH 2 #8

The identity of the mysterious Amazon will be revealed in the upcoming issue.

We've been wondering about the identity of the mysterious woman said to be the 'Earth 2 Amazon' for quite a while now, and the latest preview of EARTH 2 finally reveals a bit more information regarding her identity as well as where Steppenwolf has been since the fall of 'the Wonders' back in the first few issues of this series.

The preview to EARTH 2 #8 reveals a Steppenwolf who appears never to have left earth. A terror to humanity that has been stuck on Earth 2 since the Boom Tube closed, taking refuge in a country that has closed its doors to International Law. In a brief monologue he reveals bits of information about the woman who has quickly become his second in command; a woman born on Earth to the "greatest warrior from Amazon Island" (HMM who could that be, we wonder?!) and one who has embraced the tutelage of Apokolips' warriors. Robinson's brief mention of the Amazon in the preview reminded us a little bit of Big Barda, which was nice to see. It will be interesting to see whether this character embraces Steppenwolf's ways, or if she will eventually turn on him and serve her home planet. You can check out the interview we did with James Robinson about this very issue not too long ago by going here. EARTH 2 #8 is set to hit store shelves on this coming Wednesday, January 9th.

I always think of the band whenever I read about the character of Steppenwolf.

@SandMan_: There's no such thing as a male dominatrix. Males are dominators.

I would make more sense if it was Donna, since James has been keeping tight on her identity ever since her 'name' was revealed. That he's keeping tight and it's supposedly 'not who we think she is', leads me to assume it's not the original Fury.

Added with everything else James has done, it could end up being a mix of several characters

Well based on the preview it seems that she is Lyta Hall, although she seems quite the grown up and her mother didn't seem that old when she died.

She looks like Nemesis Mr Majestic's girl friend from the wildstorm universe but i think it's just a coincidence but I hope she's Lyta Trevor from the Golden Age and not Donna i hope she will still be wonder woman sister and why not twin sister it can be interesting.

@sentryman555 said: I'd be disappointed because it means, at least for a long while, she wouldn't be in the same universe as Nightwing and all them. Meaning they couldn't do some kind of crossover with her, Dick, Roy, garth, and wally. If the others ever get around to coming back themselves.....

That the Fury reboot has changed hair color does not mean that the black hair is a nod to Donna Troy. I noticed the reboots of dc tend to change the hair color lately. Like the rebooted Katar Hol also changed his hair color from black to brown. For Fury, maybe she cannot be blonde anymore bec. her father is no longer Steve Trevor so she had to follow the black hair color of her mother Wonder Woman.

I thought James said she was not the daughter of Steve/Diana. So who is the father? Some are saying it's Steppenwolf...ouch if that is the case. Mind boggles and kind of disgusting too. Got to feel sorry for WW. Did she ever have any happiness? Fooled no doubt by him, child taken, nation annihilated, and then hacked down by him. Wow, so the kid will have to choose between her mother or father's legacy. But must say the girl looks like Lashina. No doubt she'll change costumes when she chooses sides.

I'm pretty certain J.Robinson has already stated it isn't going to be Donna. Name's Fury, "Real Name" still hasn't been revealed - probably Lyta thought.

If you don't like it, then don't buy it. Why do some people have to spoil things for the open-minded optimists?

I still say it's Barda, and that would make perfect sense!

I don't mind one name characters, but there's so many nowadays the new ones need to be a bit more thought out or elaborate, not like.... Fury.....sigh

@ComicMan24: Probably cause Diana is usually depicted with ageless immortality, who knows how old she really is/was when she died?

@maybetoby: earth 2 is an alternate universe. just like there is a second earth there is a second apokolips etc. also it could be the same steppenwolf from our earth (new 52). if he can transverse universes and planets i'm sure time is not big of a deal to him

@Perfect 10:

The universe of the Fourth World is and always will be it's own universe. There is only one Apokalips, New Genesis, Darksied, and so on. Darksied was looking across the Multiverse for his daughter.
