In Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman # 2, DC confirms that Yara Flor does not have a certain ability that the original Wonder Woman possesses.
Warning! Possible spoilers for Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman # 2 by Dan Watters and Leila Del Duca!
What started as the new Wonder Woman simply displaying one of her many quirks became proof that Yara Flor does not possess one of Diana’s most unique powers. Part of what makes Yara so intriguing is that she doesn’t hide the fact that she’s a rookie. He almost takes delight in it. One of the many comic moments in Future state: Wonder Woman # 1 that showed this actually happened during his fight against a hydra. Realizing that the possibility of her triumphing over the beast by cutting off her head was not only unlikely, but very detrimental to her survival, she asked her pegasus named Jerry for help. But it didn’t come. His winged companion arrived much later, and just in time too.

Readers may have seen this as a hilarious example describing the fact that since Yara had just become the leader of her Amazon army, her inexperience hampered her ability to lead effectively. While that remains the case, subsequent events involving another steed show that this failure runs much deeper. This is especially the case, as this animal has nothing to do with its Amazonian origin.
Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman # 2, written by Dan Watters with art by Leila Del Duca, begins with Yara trying to control the Headless Mule, an animal that would later serve as her steed for a race she agreed to participate in against the Sun God. good in your efforts to calm the creature. In fact, he’s having trouble simply putting the zip ties on, and the scene that follows looks like a detour. The creature is trying to push her while she tries to stay. His inability to connect with the creature is revealed when the new Superman, Jon Kent, easily calms him down. He then adds insult to injury when correcting it about the mule’s sex.
In other words, Yara cannot talk to or control animals, an ability her predecessor Diana possesses. While she doesn’t appear in the DC Extended Universe movies, Diana has spoken to various species of animals on many occasions, which definitely helped her when she served as a pet psychiatrist long ago. But his most impressive use of this power is each time he successfully convinces members of the animal kingdom to turn to his helper, like the time he had a shark devour marine robots in Wonder Woman # 764.
So while Yara Flor doesn’t have all of Diana’s special powers, the lack of them actually makes Yara a more compelling character. Obviously, she is a strong and too brave heroine who does not fear anything, not even Hades, the god of the underworld. But Yara’s reactions to her flaws not only give readers a glimpse of her overly mischievous and comical side, they reveal a much more willful character who must and does overcome more flaws in ways than the original. Wonder Woman never could.
