    There are a couple bald Amazons in his cast pics he's been teasing. I know the one you're talking about and I think you're right.

    But I also wouldn't be surprised if Alkyone ends up having the most...subdued armor out of all of them. She strikes me as being very practical and plain.

    Yeah, I could see her having a Spartan (for lack of a better word ) appearance.

    At least as a subdued as Jimenez's designs get...

    Speaking of Simone Amazons and her run, I wonder if Astarte will show up as one of the originals?

    Jimenez also implied in a Tweet (that now I can't find) that Penthesilea would be among the Amazons in Historia. She's one of Hippolyta's sisters in myth, but was never labeled as such in any of the comics and is a descendent of Phthia in the Perez run. If all five "sisters" show up, I'd be curious how they will address why they are sisters and the other Amazons "birthed" around them at the same time are not.

    Same Tweet also said Menalippe and Penelope would be in it, but I feel those two were givens. Still annoyed with Johns for killing them off in Darkseid War.

    I see Donna rockin' a new red Wonder Girl outfit!

    I would like to see more Donna with her Amazon sisters.

    Detail I liked about Earth One Themyiscira was different tribes and cities (New Athens, New Sparta) being on the island (or islands?) rather than just one main urban hub like how it's usually depicted.

    Oh, I didn't consider Astarte. She'd certainly fit in with the snake motifs some of the Amazons seem to have but I think DeConnick will probably go with Hippolyta's mythological sisters.

    I guess another Simone Amazon I could see would be Persephone but that'd probably make things confusing if Pesephone the Goddess is also present.

    I've thought about Persephone showing up, but you're right that might cause some confusion. We might not see Artemis for the same reason (factoring in if we're getting the Bana or not, she may just be folded into the Themyscira group).

    I think the rest of the Circle members will show up, but they might not be included in the original 30. I'm curious to see how the ranks expand and how we go from 30 to a full nation.

    Yeah, I’m interested to see how that it’ll go. It looks like the Well of Souls might there for the first 30 but I can’t imagine DeConnick will go for the New 52 Azz way of how other Amazons get added on.

    I don't think we'll see Artemis either though I guess some depictions usually do have her as another Amazon on Themyscira.

    It's simple. Just have a few women end up there over the centuries. The island itself brings hurt souls to the island.

    I love me some "evil" Amazons. I can see some come to think that Paradise Island is a prison, not agreeing with their Gods, of course seeing Diana as an abomination.

    While she isn't an classic Amazon, Superwomans and Myrinas stories kind of remind me of Gabrielle/Hope/Dahak storyline on Xena.

    And maybe even some Erik Killmonger types who thinks the Amazons should rule the world and take it over by force.

    Thought Alkyone was one of the better WW villain OCs.
