If you have not read SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now. Don't say we didn't warn ya! lol
Five years from now, in WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1, we find the Amazon Princess embracing her “God of War” persona as she is entrenched in an epic battle with the evil Nemesis.
Or so we may think ...
Bracing for a deadly blood fest, the opening pages of SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1 reveal that Wonder Woman has actually been infected by Nemesis and has been imagining the entire battle in her head!
Coming to terms with reality, Wonder Woman finds one truth in her delusions: Nemesis is still the enemy.
Witnessing the devastation around her, Wonder Woman realizes that there’s only one last hope to stop Nemesis, and it’s not war… it’s peace!
With Nemesis’ army closing in on her, see below as Wonder Woman embraces the fallen spirit of Eirene and transforms into the “God of Peace!” How will peace defeat Nemesis’ army? Is her new persona permanent?
SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN: FUTURES END #1, written by Charles Soule, and illustrated by Rags Morales, Jose Marzan & Batt, is available in stores now.
