    Future State was planned a year ago, right? I wonder if Maria was her original name, but they changed it to Yara when they did the deal to bring her to the Arrowverse?

    If anything, it’s weird it’s taken her this long to be replaced compared to her generation cohorts.
    Should we count the NuCassie years?

    Yes, I’d say so.

    Edit: Maybe Maria Flor is her civilian name like Diana Prince or Kara Danvers.

    While Yara or Yara Flor is her real name like Kara Zor-El.

    Yara right now is shaping up to be the only character that seems remotely intriguing to me in this Future State thing.

    Well the common assumption is that Future State is just recycled 5G stuff but Mark Russell mentioned that he didn't have any involvement in the original 5G and was approached by DC to do Future State: Superman vs. Imperious Lex like two months before everything was announced.

    From what I understand A LOT of 5G has been funneled into Future State but not all of it.

    Also, the chances of them changing Yara's name at this point are nill. Not with all the pressers released and Joelle herself calling her Yara.

    It’s a mix. Some stuff is recycled from 5G: A black Batman written by Ridley and Jon Kent as Superman patrolling a bottled Metropolis for example. But some stuff is new like the Future State Flash, the original rumor was Owen Mercer would be taking over as the Flash. Once Didio got fired their plans shifted.

    What probably actually happened is that she was renamed from Maria to Yara prior to Future State's announcement. A few months ago, there were TPB solicits on Amazon for books related to Marvel's Empyre event, collecting comics which hadn't been published due to COVID-19. I think this listing is similarly outdated. And like I said earlier, perhaps she was renamed because she's getting a TV show.

    I assume the "Aunt Nancy" is going to be Anansi.

    Wonder what "the war" McKinney is referencing will end up being.

    Sounds like the Amazons get militarized by Yara's time, too.

    The premise sounds like Challenge of the Gods by George Perez, which is probably his most famous WW work.

    Then the writer reffered to her as Hippolyta's daughter on twitter.

    Now we have her coming to Atlanta to escape a Themyscira that's become more threatening and has abandoned their mission following a war. And spent her formative years under the tutelage of her Aunt Nancy. And they seem to mention the Real One OGN like it's in continuity.

    I honestly have no idea what to make of this contradictory information. I can only assume there's been a lot of changes in the development process.

    It's also clear this isn't the same Nubia that's been in the Wilson and Orlando runs of WW recently. Particularly since the Writer in the meet the writers section said
    The chance to bring Nubia back to the main continuity. This is all I and other fans have been asking for, for years
    I want to appreciate the enthusaism, but not being aware of the recent runs doesn't inspire confidence.

    And if this Nubia is Hippolyta's daughter, I hope they use magic or something so Phillipus is her second biological mother or she's made of clay instead of Hippolyta having another affair or something.
