The Undoing is here. Superman couldn’t stop it. Darkseid couldn’t stop it. Only Diana Prince is left to hold back the being that could spell the complete disintegration of the cosmos. But will even she be powerful enough for the task?
Meanwhile, in another future, Nubia’s attempts to stop the theft of ancient artifacts have led her to an even bigger conspiracy, and an even bigger foe. Circe is up to her old tricks, even after all these years-and she has an offer that Nubia will find hard to refuse.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 16, 2021

    When all is said and done, Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2 delivers an emotional gut-punch in its opening story and follows it up with a piece that virtually anywhere else would be a strong tale in its own right. This book is a must-own for fans of Wonder Woman. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Kendra Hale Feb 25, 2021

    Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman is indeed an epic tale worthy of the title. The voice of Diana is both powerful and graceful. It is my favorite of the Future State titles, everything about it is a siren's call. Nubia's story is just enough of a tease to make you want so much more of the character and I am looking forward to the future. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the breathtaking cover by Jen Bartel, stunning artwork to say the least. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Feb 16, 2021

    Cloonan and Conrad have carefully crafted a tale of unending hope amidst uncertainty. It is interesting to ponder what life is like for an immortal. And how ultimately losing everyone you love affects your psyche. I was profoundly sad for Diana, but also empowered by her strength of character. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Feb 16, 2021

    Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2 wraps up with two very different takes on the iconic DC Comics superhero. Becky Cloonan, Michael Conrad, and Jen Bartel tell an archetypal self-contained story of life and death, hope and despair, and finding purpose when there's nothing to live for starring Diana Prince. Plus it really captures the range of emotions one would feel before the inevitable end of the universe. In the second story, L.L. McKinney, Alitha Martinez, Mark Morales, and Emilio Lopez cram in lore, exposition, multiple villains, and one kick-ass fight scene to lay the foundation for future stories featuring Nubia. It's like a two-hour pilot screaming for a series order whereas the lead story is a beautiful elegy with career-best interior art from Jen Bartel, who masterfully depicts both the cosmic and human.

    Both of the Immortal Wonder Woman stories approach the legacy of their mantle without the traditional trappings of other Wonder Woman stories, and the end result is a true marvel. Read Full Review

    The second half of this Wonder Woman spotlight continues the strengths of the first chapter, but it's a very unconventional story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 21, 2021

    Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2 was a solid issue. The main story involving Diana Prince's final story as Wonder Woman was a mixed bag as Cloonan and Conrad did a good job putting over Diana's mentality at the end of time. But it was The Undoing being such a forgettable antagonist that dragged the main story's down. Luckily, we got Nubia's Future State back-up that lifted the quality content we got as her journey was Wonder Woman added further depth to the mythology in the franchise. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Feb 17, 2021

    Immortal Wonder Woman tells a beautiful end times story about Diana's never-ending perseverance, but it feels incomplete in many ways. Meanwhile, Nubia's half of the issue sets forth some fun threads for future stories, but gets a bit bogged down in exposition. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 16, 2021

    While the primary creative team of Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2 are sure to follow through on the conflict between Superman and Darkseid which their opening salvo set-up, the strongest material from all involved comes as a result of the scenes which see Diana coming to terms with the end.

    This Wonder Woman double header seemed a missed opportunity to showcase either Amazon whether from Diana as the last hero on Earth or Nubia establishing her path as a hero. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 16, 2021

    Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #2, suffers from art ill-suited for action and storytelling that disregards sense. It would be best for everyone involved if this Future State entry was put back in the drawer it was pulled from. If there's any saving grace, the Nubia story has some potential going forward.
