Our heroes have challenged the gods themselves to a test of bravery for the fate of the Earth. But gods are notorious cheaters, and with Superman’s powers in flux, it falls to Wonder Woman to face down the sun itself! A utopian future awaits-but only if a Kryptonian peacemaker and an Amazon warrior can put aside their differences to become the World’s Finest Heroes!

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Feb 9, 2021

    I wouldn't want to see Jon Kent and Yara Flor supplant Clark and Diana in the regular monthly titles. However, I would love to see more of this pair in the future. I would love to see them in another Future State story or in a modern day Superboy/Wonder Girl miniseries. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 9, 2021

    Dan Watters is one of the writers at DC most known for darker stories, particularly in his Sandman Universe work. That's why it's a surprise that his Future State story is actually inspired by, of all sources, the Silver Age. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #2 wraps up what is almost the platonic ideal of a superhero team-up with Dan Watters, Leila Del Duca, and Nick Filardi telling a tale of troubleshooting on a universal scale with plenty of wit, bright colors, and heroes acting, well, like heroes. Mythology, science fiction, and a pinch of snark (Mainly Yara telling Jon that Earth could survive without him.) all come together in perfect harmony and minimal continuity baggage. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sam Rutzick Feb 9, 2021

    A really well written retro-feeling comic that is unfortunately let down by its art. Watters should really get a chance to go and write a Superman book, too. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 15, 2021

    Silly little story where our heroes are taught lessons. Jon knows he needs a day off. Yara learns maybe humanity isn't all bad. But even better, they teach the villains a lesson. So much fun. And an improvement from last issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 9, 2021

    Leila Del Duca does a great job with the art in the issue. The style of the art is light and it matches the lighter tone of the story really well. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 9, 2021

    When all is said and done, Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #2accomplishes a strong finish to its story. It built its main characters up beyond what they were in the previous issue, allowing them to deal with the enemies before them in a way that is both satisfying, as well as entertaining.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Feb 9, 2021

    Dan Watters' script is a stronger one than the previous issue's, precisely because it has more time for the central duo to share scenes and let these interactions further define their individual dynamics. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Feb 10, 2021

    Dan Watters' narration has the tone of a storyteller recalling a myth to children gathered around a fire, giving the tale an epic quality. Leila del Duca's artwork is up the task, depicting the heroes taking on Herculean challenges with a statuesque style befitting the gods. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 9, 2021

    This was a basic comic that worked more because it embraced fun over the tone of way too many of the Future State titles. It's a quick read with only two issues but it ends on a cheery, optimistic note instead of one continually shrouded in darkness and despair. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman #2 is a less confusing chapter to this particular title than the first issue. However, an overly convenient plot device, an eyerolling super punch, and inconsistent facial art keep the issue from rising above mediocre. Read Full Review
