It's Nubia time! At the end of Death Metal #7 from DC Comics, Wonder Woman kinda died. Almost died. Something happened anyway, and her self-sacrifice ascended her onto the ethereal plane, leaving the world behind her. We looked at where she may end up before, but what about those she leaves behind?
There is a challenge to replace Diana as the Wonder Woman or Earth. When we mentioned this before, the commentary from everyone was that Nubia should be the new Wonder Woman, it's an obvious choice, why is there even a challenge? Bleeding Cool has learned that this is basically the attitude of all the Amazonians on Demon Island – sorry, that's what they'll be calling it over on Earth 3 – Paradise Island. But a challenge must be held, even if the winner is obvious. And with Nubia getting a new graphic novel, and being heavily featured in the Immortal Wonder Woman Future State series, she seems the obvious choice.
Except it is not. Nubia has another role to take up, as the new Queen of Themyscria. Yara Flor has her role as Wonder Girl to come. And as for the current Queen, Hippolyta? She is the new Wonder Woman of the DC Universe. And that's why she is turning up in the new Brian Bendis Justice League…
Of course, today's Future State has another role for Hippolyta to fulfil after that one…
If Hippolyta is the new Wonder Woman and Diana is offered membership of the Quintessence, will they swap round at some point?
