    Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1 is everything a first issue should be, setting up the characters with an engaging story and a minimum of exposition. It's one of the best books of the Future State line so far. I'm looking forward to the next chapter immensely. Read Full Review

    Future State Superman Wonder Woman #1 adds great depth to Yara and Jonathan's characters and helps to further expand the worlds of Future State. Definitely give this book a read if you've become a fan of either character! Read Full Review

    Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1 may not be as enticing as the event's other titles. However it has an element of fun that the other titles seem to be missing. Many of the titles show a rather dystopian future. However, this title shows a future I might actually enjoy living in. Plus, I can't deny that I love seeing Jon Kent having fully grown into the role of Superman. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jan 13, 2021

    While a bit uneven, Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1 is a fun read. Yara steals the show again here, so fans of the new character will definitely want to pick this issue up. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sam Rutzick Jan 12, 2021

    This isn't a perfect comic. The characterization being so different between this and Superman of Metropolis is a flaw, even if I like this characterization more, and the art gets strange at times. But still, broadly, this might be the best part of Future State by far. Read Full Review

    Superman and Wonder Woman do their best to bring order to the world. But things do get a bit out of hand. The last page in particular exemplifies that best and makes for an intriguing hook for the next issue. I was interested to find out how this story is going to resolve itself.I said before that this comic is very basic and you definitely feel it reading this. It is not a bad thing, but I do wish that the creators had more space to give it more depth. There was a lot more to be explored with this and I feel like we may only be scratching the surface.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jan 12, 2021

    The real issue with the book however is more how 'Future State' as a whole is functioning as it is unclear when this is happening in relation to its co-leads' other appearances, namely how this fits with what Jon did to Metropolis in his book last week. These series already have to move quickly to get their stories underway considering they're just a couple of issues long, but it'd be nice if they were able to take a minute in order to make the timeline clear and provide a better sense of its heroes' overall journeys.

    There are some fun ideas here and simmering tension between Superman and Wonder Woman. Still, it is disappointingly conservative for part of an event meant to be looking forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 12, 2021

    Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman #1 is a mess. Confusing story. Meta mythology may have some cultural accuracy but doesn't make a lick of sense in this specific context. And rough, inconsistent art makes for a tough book to get through. If you're keen on getting to know Yara Flor / Wonder Woman, Future State: Wonder Woman #1 is a much better book. Read Full Review

    Del Duca and Filardi's art is gorgeous, and Watters' writing makes both Jon and Yara even more interesting than I already found them. Solaris, Jon's sassy cybernetic sun nemesis, is also an awesome villain.

    If there's one thing to be nitpicky about, it's just that as a Brazilian there are some language issues in Yara's storyline. One character is named Soasa - a last name that does not exist, but was probably meant to be Sousa - and São Paulo is mistakenly referred to as São Paolo once or twice. Yara also exclaims a sentence in Portuguese at one point that isn't something I've ever heard someone say, but I'll blame Google translate for that.

    Anyway, other than that this is another Future State winner.

    That was brutal. As I got toward the end I kept checking how many pages were left and how much longer I'd have to endure it, since I'm giving each of the FS titles a full issue's chance. This was the worst of them so far. I can't remember the last time I gave so low a score.

    I don't give low scores because I don't like how my favorite characters are being treated, or because they're "written out of character," or because a writer is making different decisions than I would if I were writing the comic book, or I'm judging the artwork against artists I already love. I want writers and artists to be intrepid and I don't hold anything sacred except for how the storytelling is executed and how it makes me feel, if it makes me feel anyt more

    Wonder Woman, without a doubt, is Future's State biggest success so far. I haven't seen a single person hating on her, and there's plenty of reasons why she immediately impressed us, the readers. She's genuinely funny, different from Diana in so many ways, and her hot head leads her to some silly, awkward situations we love to see her try to resolve. She can do what Diana can't, and thus her debut comic was so refreshing to read.
    Jon didn't have the same luck, first being destroyed as a character by Brian Michael Bendis, and then Brandon Easton wasted his potential in his Superman of Metropolis. With that in mind, I think teaming these two together was a good idea, at least on paper. People want more Yara, and she could be used to intr more

    Fun and great looking book, with a story that could have come from the best of the Silver Age. There's still never been a bad comic with Solaris the Tyrant Sun in it!

    Premise was an interesting mix of cosmic and mythical.

    Expected more team up between Supes and WW. It brought up a difference in how these two heroes approach crime-fighting, and I wish it explored that more. But all-in-all, a breezy story.

    I'm not from Brazil but speaking to other readers theres a lot of language and lore errors in this issue which is not a good look. If you're gonna write Yara and use Brazilian mythology/lore then at least do your research or get a translator. This getting past editorial and coming from DC is embarrassing

    Yara and Jon have zero chemistry, like not even as friends.

    Jon's a benevolent, overworked god who helps people as Superman... So basically like his father.

    Why even replace Clark with Jon at all? F.S. was a testing ground revitailizing classic DC heroes for a modern era, the new characters introduced: Yara Andy and Flash (to a much lesser extent) hv a distinct personality from the predecessors except him. more

    -Spoiler Warning-

    Wow, I just finished reading this book and I must say it was pretty bad. The art is something that I think I could draw if I closed my eyes. Superman looks laughably bad on page 4. Here is a little tip for Del Duca, less detail doesn't mean that your drawing is good. It's not an art style, it's either laziness or a lack of actual talent. As for the story, I'm glad that they have turned Wonder Women into a criminal thug who assaults a Councilman because she is displeased with the job that he is doing. Not only that she then bullies the pilot/Bodyguard who was actually just doing his job warns her that he will shot if she doesn't stop committing the crime of aggravated assault (Given she has powers I would say more
