Q:With regards to Earth 2, when James Robinson write it he said Wonder Woman was the first of seven wonders. He made it clear she was important and so too would her legacy. Why have we not seen much of that plot? Where is Fury? Why has Earth 2 become Batman and Superman again and Wonder Woman aspect shoved aside?
Fury. Who? Oh Fury. She still alive? Just kidding. That is one plot thread that seems to have been shoved aside for a while now since Tom Taylor took over. We know Earth 2 is getting some criticism as well for ignoring the JSA who it was supposed to be about; it’s become all too much Batman and Superman. Earth 2 we are aware is getting a second title. Maybe that should solve the problem. People can then pick up which ever one suits them. Unless they make that one Batman/Superman centric again. Let’s hope we see something with Fury soon.
"Nothing like a strong woman. Your father liked them strong too."
Clark’s mother, Lara, is a soldier in this canon and Clark falls for a warrior. Clark’s reaction to seeing Lara in Return to Krypton and when he first sees Diana from Earth 2 is particularly interesting. And as we know when Clark meets his Diana for the first time in Justice League, he can’t take his eyes off her. Zod notes like father like son.

Spoiler for Earth 2 #8.
The young Fury schooled by Apokolips is none other than the daughter of Wonder Woman from Earth-2. Remember Diana got hacked down by Steppenwolf in Earth 2 #1?
All we know so far is the Wonder Woman of that earth was the first hero and we have no idea how long she has been operating. We don’t even know of her origin. Clay or daughter of Zeus? We don’t know much of the Amazons either. Other that they have been all wiped out when Apokolips infiltrated their island. So when did our late Diana first appear? Years? Decades? When did she have this little lady? How and when did Steppenwolf get her?
So whose the daddy? Steve Trevor of that Earth? Steppenwolf? (ewww. maybe not. we hope)
Place your bets.
Earth 2 #8 is on sale from today.
