EXCLUSIVE: Identity of EARTH 2's 'Last Amazon' Revealed

James Robinson discusses who the mysterious figure on the cover of EARTH 2 #8 is.

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.

Posted by Ms. Omega

Ok I am curious.

Posted by halovsmarvel

Nice

Posted by SmashBrawler

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

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Makes sense

Posted by wildcardcomics

Oh damn. Hell yeah. :D

@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.

@SmashBrawler: Now THAT is something interesting to consider. :)

aww i was hoping for Donna...maybe it still can be?

Posted by SandMan_

Can we have Kon-El in Earth 2 as well?

Posted by Mbecks14

Called it!!

Posted by notarandomguy

Okay, no more DC for me I'll read only this one but given the facts that there won't be Donna, Cass, Steph or Wally ( I could care less about Garth) I can keep on with this

wonder woman clone ?

Edited by Webjaker

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".

Edited by Miss_Garrick

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

Posted by Catsnlynne

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.

Posted by zackattack529

i don't know if i wanna keep picking up Earth- 2 or start picking up Uncanny Avengers next week..hmm

A little help here comicviners??? Is Uncanny Avengers going to be worth it or should i stick with Earth-2?

Posted by JamDamage

@zackattack529: It's Remender that is writing. Go with Uncanny Avengers

Posted by SmashBrawler

@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.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

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.

Posted by SolthesunGod

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

Posted by neiliusprime

yay?

Posted by KnightRise

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

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

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.

Posted by KnightRise

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

Posted by Rugor

@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.

Posted by TheCrowbar

It's Big Barda.

(What I can have my own wishes!?)

Posted by captainadamant

Steppenwolf.... Is the father :O. I can see a resemblance a bit. Either that or it is just the intimidating stare.

Posted by Perfect 10

looks cool. without any color i couldn't tell who it was but i was hoping for Donna. it could still be Donna Troy but using the Fury code name either way can't wait til january

Posted by Lvenger

Interesting. Very peculiar.

Posted by DarthShap

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.

Posted by Lvenger

@DarthShap: Nice call! Do you think this character is going to be a former Female Fury?

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.

Sad Face :( I was really hoping for Zealot.

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

Posted by cameron83

OH MY F*CKING GOD PEOPLE,donna is not here yet.CASS ALREADY EXISTS IN MAIN EARTH SO SHE CANNOT EXIST IN THIS ONE.SAME WITH SUPERBOY.IF SHE DID SHE WOULD JUST BE KILLED!

and btw,they said they are gonna show donna,it is like you retards want to see every single last character in the first week

@notarandomguy: It was Infinity Inc, and I still have some issues.

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

@cameron83: You do realize some people have different opinions then you? Also I've only seen one person complain, and no Cassie doesn't exist. Oh and please don't use the "r word".

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

Looking forward to reading the next instalments, still so so hooked on Earth 2.

Posted by Skylynx

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.

Posted by CitizenJP

They both look pretty pissed.

Edited by SolthesunGod

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?

Posted by GanymedeATL

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.
