Who Is Earth 2's 'Last Amazon'?

Wonder Woman died in the first issue of EARTH 2, but an Amazon graces the upcoming cover of the series. Who could she be?

They say sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the case of the latest image revealed by DC Comics for the cover to EARTH 2 #8 it seems this one reveals a whole heck of a lot. The penciled sketch by artist Yildiray Cinar, Steppenwolf and a mysterious female character stand front and center. But what does it all mean? If you've been reading the series then you may recall Steppenwolf's appearance in the first issue of the series, but that he's since been absent from the title. Does this upcoming cover mark his return to Earth 2? We caught up with writer James Robinson to ask him who the mysterious figure in the image could be, but he sadly didn't give us a whole lot to work with.

We're keeping the identity of "the last Amazon" under wraps for now but we will reveal it shortly...Please be patient and have fun guessing! You can look forward to her kicking major ass in issue #8 of EARTH 2!

OK, so we know Steppenwolf is definitely on the cover, and if you recall back to the first issue you'll remember that Wonder Woman was killed at his hand -- so it can't be her. So, who is this mysterious new Amazon? Could it be Donna Troy? That would certainly be an interesting twist since Donna has yet to appear in comics since the start of the New 52. Not only that, but Donna was a central figure in Robinson's JUSTICE LEAGUE run just prior to DC's reboot. Regardless of who it is, we can all agree that Cinar is a talented artist and we are definitely looking forward to seeing his talents on the EARTH 2 title. Who do you think 'The Last Amazon' could be?

Very cool, I dont think its donna, that's too obvious. Maybe its Artemis.

Posted by zackattack529

its Donna Troy.. aha

Posted by Space_Captain_Ulyverse

As a new take on JSA, I do like this title.

Donna...

Posted by Mbecks14

Looks Bad-ass!! I hope it's Lyta Trevor/Fury! Wonder Woman's daughter from the Original Earth-2.

Would be cool to see Donna Troy but I think since she'd be too different from her old self I wouldn't want to deal with the vicious back lash.

Actually upon further inspection of the picture, she has a moon on her tiara which implies Donna. Should be interesting!

James and Nicola have been knocking it out of the park with this series. I hope it will be Donna Troy, but whoever it is, in Robinson I trust.

I think it will be Lyta too. If Batman and Superman could have a "daughter" each then surely Diana could too.

donna troy , sister to a fallen wonder woman , and with steppenwolf having her hand on her maybe trained (some mind control convoluted bs )her as a fury? purely speculation but im going to read it regardless .

Posted by doordoor123

I think it is Big Barda. Something about the costume reminds me of her and Big Barda being tangled up with the New Gods/ Apokolips seems perfect.

That would be cool!! Then she could have a really interesting crossover with World's Finest!

My guess is that it's Donna. But who is the man? Ares?

Posted by RedQueen

If I had to guess I would agree and say it's Donna Troy; way back when they said that Diana was not the last Amazon in Earth 2, that was who my mind jumped to. But is that too obvious? It could also be Artemis.

Then again Lyta would be another guess. As others have suggested.

I like that Earth-2 Amazons actually dress like Amazons

Posted by SolthesunGod

I'm really curious what this means for the Sandman series. Earth 2 characters Hector Hall and Lyta Hall are essential to that series.

PLEASE be Donna Troy! We deserve that.

I know there are other cool Amazon characters, but she's the only one I care about right now. If it is anyone else I will be disappointed.

I don't even care that her outfit is stripperific and she's got some sort of weird noose/whip thing that doesn't make sense. I want this to be Donna so bad.

Posted by DarthShap

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.

Now, I do not think that she is Lyta but she could be. Azzarello got rid of the clay origin but Robinson could very well keep it and use it to create Lyta.

Steppenwolf. Read the article :P

@Babs: Oops :/ Maybe it's Barda then?

I was gonna say Donna

Well, obviously, that is long gone.

I mean, people called Hector and Lyta can still exist on New Earth and have a child called Daniel but that is pretty much it. On New Earth, the first superhero appeared five years ago, which means that Hector and Lyta's parents would not be superheroes.

That's very depressing. As my avatar suggests I love series. Well at least Gaiman is doing a follow up.

I'm betting it's Khloe Kardashian the Last Amazon.

He is actually doing a prequel...to a story which no longer fits the current continuity.

Well, I guess it is better than if he was asked to write "The New 52 Sandman" and to Retcon his masterpiece so that it fit.

That's how actual amazons dress? Amazons would be wearing armor that actually covers and protects their bodies not just shows them off. I like the look of this mysterious amazon but I think an actual amazon would wear something more practical.

It's Steppenwolf from Apokolips.

@Mbecks14: Have you seen how ancient warriors dressed? half the time they went in to battle naked.

Posted by cameron83

PLEASE DON'T BE DONNA!i think i want donna to appear in the main universe.But it is probably big barda,but maybe not since sweet leilani gave mention to Big Barda.

Maybe donna then

Posted by Or35ti

Doona Troy. Donna Troy. Donna Troy. Donna Troy. Donna Troy. Donna Troy. Donna Troy.

I hope it's Donna Troy. That'd be AWESOME! Earth 2 is one of my favorite and most looked-forward to titles.

I was just teasing.

Posted by DarthShap

Big Barda actually is possible but seeing that there has always been only one Fourth World for the entire Multiverse, she would have to be the one and only Big Barda.

The problem I have with this idea is that both Orion and Big Barda were the living proof that some people from Apokolips were redeemable, that they could become heroes despite their evil nature. If Barda is an Amazon would just happened to get captured by Granny, she never had an evil nature to begin with and her redemption out of love for Mister Miracle does not mean as such.

Dobut it's Donna may be new character but awesome cover sketch! Now we need some colors

If its her I'm not reading it. lol Never liked her.

Posted by JonesDeini

Hmmm interesting. Hope it's Donna but we shall see. Could be Lyta

Posted by universal_adam

Come on guys. It's obviously Barda.

Posted by Zeeguy91

I'm gonna say either Donna or Artemis.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

This is NICE!

Posted by paulcousins

it would be beyond amazing if it were zealot from wildstorm, but my faith is shattered as wildstorm characters seem to be only minor characters is the new 52 i'm still not sure why DC bought them... sad face

Posted by arcano_19

i said is donna troy

Posted by Sovereign91001

I'm really hoping it's Artemis...

Posted by Miss_Garrick

It's not Donna or Artemis. That's too obvious. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, it's Nubia. We'll see.

Posted by EvanTheMexiJew

It's definitely Donna Troy. I feel like everything happening in the DCnU is just leading up to the Trinity War :/

Posted by Darkmount1
Posted by Fantasgasmic

The safe money may be on Donna. Judging by the name, headgear, and subtle costuming clues, I'd guess Artemis. If you just showed me the image on its own, I'd guess a not quite as Big Barda

Posted by Peregrine

I think it is Fury aka Lyta Hall
