    Histori is something that needs to happen because its happened for Supermans homeworld of Krypton and Bruce Waynes Parents lives along side the history of the city has been expounded on exponentially but The Amazonian History has never really been given any type of structure that people could point to if you wanted to know more about the Amazons as a people. I have a half dozen books of superman and batman that flesh out krypton/metropolis/gotham/the Wayne family. This is a necessary step for Diana to finally step up in her place in the Big 3

With all this in mind I doubt either Superman and Batman will be the fathers especially not Superman as Rucka hates that ship.
    I agree with this reasoning - I think it's more a spiritual heir idea.

    Intriguing - I'll be interest to see how they interpret and add to Amazon lore in both books.

    I'm wondering if DeConnick's Amazon history will end up being canon to the main book and play off what Rucka's established so far?

    Nice to have Rucka back on Wonder Woman .

    History looks/sounds awesome. So completely and utterly over Rucka's Wonder Woman though. On the off chance its Lyta I'll keep an ear to the ground but otherwise, just Historia for me.

    The summary references heritage so it might be some sort of biological connection otherwise it makes no sense.

    They both sound potentially promising. And I'll join the "Steve is probably the father" train to.

    Not necessarily. There are such things as non-biological inheritance. And especially seeing as Diana's Daughter is just a working title, that pretty much leaves it wide open, in my eyes. Personally it being Lyta would probably be the only thing to make me interested (and even then I'd be on the fence, I'm just not a fan of his WW work) but a biological heir is hardly confirmed.

    Of the Black Label titles so far announced, HISTORIA is the only one that interests me. But here's the thing--it seems like there are just as many non-canonical Wonder Womans out there as anything that's supposed to be canonical. And what is the official continuity for Wonder Woman? It's confusing. If DC wants new readers to buy the WW books, they need to make it easier on them. It seems like all DC knows how to do is tell alternate versions of the origin story and then never get anywhere beyond that.

    Working title or not the summary is out and it already leaves many people with the impression the girl will be Diana's biological daughter. It's kind of risky to release a book that has a working title with a summary to boot because then a lot of people will be let down if they don't get what they are expecting. But if the non-biological inheritance thing does win people over it's DC's win anyway.

    the official origin is the rebirth year one tale, but just knowing Zeus is her dad. This isn't that confusing.

    But what if Steve is the father. Why not have it be introduce in the main title.

    This is pretty good news. But I am sad that it’s not in canon to the main title. Apparently all of the good stuff comes that way.

    It could backfire so best not do anything so radical when things are not so stable yet.
