    Know there was some disagreement over this yesterday but note that the solicit says this is a 6 issue miniseries.

    I like that she's got a lion theme going on. Very cool.

    Interesting to see how this plays out and how it'll impact the Amazons overall.

    Hopefully the series does well enough for her to get an actual ongoing. Love everything about the cover.

    I would have preferred a dragon theme for her, but that's me.

    'Former guardian of Doom's Doorway'. Looks like they are mixing a bit of Perez's origin in there as well.

    Have they finally settled on her backstory?

    I guess so. The WW backup this week also mentioned Nubia in connection to Doom's Doorway.

    Stephanie Williams was on the Cerebro Podcast and while she talked mainly about X-Men, she also let some info drop about her Nubia stories starting at approx. hour 2:

    Nubia won't be Diana's sister, but they are going to have a connection.

    Philippus and Nubia will certainly interact. The story focuses on Nubia coming into her own as the queen of the Amazons. Williams describes it as Nubia's "T'Challa moment".

    We'll learn more about Themyscira. Specifically, The Cavern/Well of Souls is mentioned. There'll be an effort to show that Themyscira is open to all women. Meaning trans women are included.

    I hope this limited series catches on in a way that Hestia and her "Odyssey of the Amazons" didn't.

    So I guess they might be going with Nubia being the daughter of Hippolyta and Phillipus? I could live with that.

    Trans Amazons make sense. Since they were all women who were reincarnated into newer bodies after felling to violence, it stands to reason that some of them were trans women brought back in the bodies of the gender they identify as.

    She cant be Hippolyta/Phillipus's daughter since then she'd be Dianas half sister still.

    Hmm, guess she could just be Philipus's daughter but Hippolyta raised her still.

    That's the least flattering description of Artemis I've ever heard.
