Wonder Girl technically hasn’t even fought her first sprawling battle in her forthcoming DC Comics series, but Greg Berlanti, architect of the CW’s Arrowverse, and Queen of the South co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez are already hoping she’s ready to join her fellow superheroes at the network. According to Deadline, the pair are developing an hour-long drama based on the DC character from comic-book artist Joëlle Jones.

The series, written by Rodriguez, will reportedly kick off as an origin story about “Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God” who discovers she is Wonder Girl. If the mention of the Amazons takes you back to Themyscira, you’re a step ahead: Yara will also be making her debut as a new Wonder Woman in January’s Future State: Wonder Woman. Seems like a lot for one person to take on, but being half river deity should help her manage those early call times and all that crime-fighting.
