In DC Comics’ Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman, the Themysciran princess is one of the last heroes left standing in a universe ravaged by ceaseless evils. In time, those evils apparently became so great that even beings like Darkseid begin to fear them.

While DC’s comic explores Diana’s fight against this far-off threat in one timeline, Immortal Wonder Woman #1 revealed that its story would also center on the adventures of her long-lost sister, Nubia, set in a different reality where the responsibilities of being Wonder Woman fell to her. Speaking with io9, artist Alitha Martinez pointed out that Immortal Wonder Woman #2, which delves a bit into Nubia’s life leading up to the comic, features a number of significant nods to her relationship with Wonder Woman—like the way she utilizes the Lasso of Truth as a hair wrap.

Writer L.L. McKinney, who penned the “Nubia” story within the issue, explained that small details like those play a role in harkening back to the glory Nubia originally entered DC Comics with, something she hopes to see more of for the character going forward. “I hope there’s more for this Nubia in the future, an expansion of her story that she deserves and fans deserve. I want this whether I’m part of it or not,” McKinney said. “Though of course, I would love to be.”
