Last month, writer James Robinson told you a little bit about EARTH 2 #8 and teased the issue’s significance for the series. Then, you got your first look at Fury, Steppenwolf’s female champion. But what is the mystery behind her origin?
After his failed invasion of the planet that lead to the death of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, Steppenwolf has gone into hiding on Earth. While in hiding, he seeks refuge in Dherain, a country ruled by King Marov. But little does Steppenwolf know, Marov plans on turning him in for a profit.
Luckily, Steppenwolf brought Fury along for protection. But who is she? Where did she come from? As Fury easily defeats all of Marov’s guards, Steppenwolf reveals she is not from Apokolips … but from Earth!
Taken, from her mother and trained to be his champion, Fury is a master in the ways of Apokolips combat and is from the finest warrior bloodline in the world. Steppenwolf claims that her mother was the greatest of all the Amazonians, so Fury can only be one person: the daughter of Wonder Woman!
Together, Steppenwolf and Fury create an unstoppable force capable of conquering the entire country of Dherain and slaughtering King Marov. But weeks later, as he sits on his new throne, Steppenwolf realizes what he truly wants. Not just one country, but the entire world! But will Fury be the one to help the man who murdered her mother achieve this goal of global domination?
