THE WIZARD - despite being an old Justice Society villain, I think it unlikely that the Wizard will make an appearance in Earth-2 so I don't expect him to be around too much.
WONDER GIRL - one of the characters, along with Wally West's Flash, that fans are desperate to hear about since the relaunch, Donna Troy still (as at early April) hasn't been announced as appearing anywhere. Meanwhile, Cassie Sandsmark is appearing as Wonder Girl in Teen Titans so the character's name at least gets in the in place column.
WONDER WOMAN - while the Earth-2 version featured in the original Who's Who is likely to be much different from that in the upcoming Earth-2 who is the last of the Amazons, it's enough that she gets in place.
WONDER WOMAN - and the Earth-1 version gets in place as well in the critically lauded Wonder Woman series.
WOTAN - another old Justice Society villain who, like the Wizard, I don't think will be around before the end of 2012.
THE WRATH - anyone remember this Batman villain that wanted revenge against Jim Gordon? Yeah, me neither.
THE WYOMING KID - despite being an Old West character, I don't think we'll see him in All Star Western. He's too much of a real cowboy as opposed to Bat Lash or Nighthawk who have gimmicks.
X'HAL - the goddess that Starfire and her people prayed to. Don't think we'll see her again.
YANKEE POODLE - another member of the Zoo Crew that won't be featured anywhere soon.
ZAMARONS - female counterparts to the Guardians of the Universe, they're definitely still around but with all the extra stuff happening in the Green Lantern books right now, I don't know if they'll appear before the end of 2012. Probably, but they'll go in the possible column.
ZATANNA - definitely in place as a member of Justice League Dark, it's nice to see the League's spellcaster is still around.
So in summary three in place (Wonder Girl, E-2 Wonder Woman and E-1 Wonder Woman) no definite predictions and one possible (Zamarons)
