This morning, L.L. McKinney (Nubia: Real One) and Alitha E. Martinez (REPRESENT! It’s A Bird!) – the creative team behind the upcoming story about Nubia for DC Future State – took to Twitter this morning to reveal a first look at the character.
So many @DCComics fans have been waiting for this one, so let’s. GO!
Daughter of Hippolyta.
Sister to Diana.
Princess of the Amazons.
And now? Wonder Woman.

DC Future State is a two-month event that will give readers a glimpse of possible futures for the superheroes of the DC Universe. During the event, which will take place in January and February 2021, all of the publisher’s standard montly titles will be suspended. In their place, a collection of monthly and bi-monthly oversized anthologies and miniseries titles will be making their way to the shelves at your local comic book shop.
DC Future State spins out the conclusion of Dark Nights: Death Metal (which will be available on January 5th, 2021). While the Multiverse has been successfully saved from destruction, the victory of the DC Heroes has ripped the universe a new space-time-hole, and the consequences have interdimensional implications.
In March 2021, DC’s regular title lineup will return, picking up with brand new story arcs for 2021 as well as continuing exisiting storylines from 2020 that have yet to be concluded when DC Future State commences. Plus, DC Executive Editor Marie Javins has teased that savvy readers may be able to catch some hints about what’s to come later in 2021 among the panels in the DC Future State titles.
