As such, it’s good that she found her way to these particular totems that provided her with reminders of hope and that she was still a hero herself, even when all seemed lost due to the Undo. Without these relics Wonder Woman he could just have accepted his fate, feeling there was nothing left to fight for at the end of the DC Universe and DC Future state event. Fortunately, he had these reminders from his friends and allies to give him the strength to be more than any hero, a gift that has passed to the mysterious new universe that creates his triumph.
