While readers learn a little more about Yara Flor’s ascension to where she was in DC Future State, Joelle Jones maintains focus elsewhere in Wonder Girl #2. At the same time, that decision has only bolstered Yara’s profile. Amazons and other characters of the ilk are in pursuit of this unsuspecting woman, yet she is somehow ready for them.
Wonder Girl #2 also marked the return of a character DC readers saw with regularity throughout Rebirth. But we also met some new characters this issue — ones who will hopefully provide some clarity on Yara’s situation in the near future. The potential to set some familiar DC characters on their next path and introduce some new ones has me waiting for what Jones has in store next.
That said, I would like a little more focus on Yara in Wonder Girl #3 rather than those who are keeping tabs on her.
(WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Wonder Girl #2.)
The characters who Yara fought on the plane have potential, but I’m most excited to see Artemis enter the fray. Of all the Outlaws to team up with Red Hood, she was my favorite — and that has nothing to do with the way her relationship with Jason Todd evolved. Artemis is not one to be messed with. So, I really hope DC isn’t planning to have her pop up for only a couple issues then sideline her. We need more Artemis.
