Comic scribe James Robinson has been in the media spotlight as of late with his work on Earth 2 series which released a revealing issue #8 earlier this month. In December 2012, James Robinson had some very interesting things to say about the Earth 2 issue (in stores now). Earth 2 issue #8 began with the return of Steppenwolf (the villain who killed Wonder Woman in Earth 2 back in issue #1) and the introduction of Fury.
Last month, Comic Vine and DC Comics interviewed James Robinson about issue #8 and what we would be expecting from it.
“Issue #8 is all about Steppenwolf, and Steppenwolf realizing there’s one country in Earth-2 that he needs to be in for political reasons that make sense for him in terms of the big story-line,” series writer James Robinson told NEWSARAMA
. “It’s a solo story between Steppenwolf and Fury. So it will show them, it will introduce Fury for the first time, and it will reveal aspects of the past and who Fury is. It’s an interesting world, with a science fiction feel, but in the midst of it you have this eloquent alien barbarian and Fury, his sort of his aide de camp, just tearing through it and being savage and violent.”
But what is the mystery behind her origin?
Steppenwolf brought Fury along for protection after he learns that King Marov of Dehrain plans on turning him in for profit. After Fury easily defeats King Marov’s guards, Steppenwolf reveals that Fury is not from Apokolips but from Earth! Steppenwolf claims that her mother was the greatest of all the Amazonians, so Fury can only be one person: the daughter of Wonder Woman!
“So issue #8 has a very different feel, but it’s an interesting feel compared to the intrigue of issue #7,” Robinson continued. “So I definitely urge people to check out issue #8 as well, and see the first pieces of the mystery of the last Amazon and also Steppenwolf as one of the big villains of Earth-2. Nicola did an amazing job on designing Fury. She didn’t draw this issue, but you see on the alternate cover how she interpreted Fury.”
