Please ask for mod approval before posting a meta post. After being disappointed by the first collection of the New 52 Justice League, I didn't have high expectations for the first set of stories surrounding the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman. A power couple is a couple that has two individuals who are strong and equal in every way. I'm surprised to say that I really enjoyed this! What I got were reinforced unhealthy gender norms, lots of cringing, and a bad aftertaste. Go back to the original power couple: Lois and Clark.
The back up story was a nice addition. There have been countless meta posts complaining about characters or explanations as to why X beats, and so on. In some way, Batman and Wonder Woman represents each other's current mission and goals. How long these two remain together remains to be seen. Superman became the conservative boyscout who had everything for a long time and that I think has not the same resonance as it used to. In this case, it's Zod who is freed from the Phantom Zone and comes to threaten our heroes and the world at large.
And looking back on past Superman movies from the Reeve ones to Routh, I do no think Lois and Clark is something that has to be the be all and end all. If you wanna blame somebody for Joker still being alive, blame the Gotham justice system for letting him bypass the death penalty or blame Arkham for not keeping him locked up, despite the literal millions of dollars Bruce has given them to do just that. However their date is interrupted by an unnatural storm forming in the North Atlantic Ocean. Wonder Woman and Batman come from different worlds, but they are kindred spirits. We don't want to block anyone, but we won't hesitate if necessary.
There is no real reason to see them together other than clois fans want them paired up based on another continuity, not that there is any real connection between them which makes zero sense. Superman does not ned Lois to sell. I and many others would rather see Superman in a Superman comic rather than Clark. Each piece works well, but the three parts don't mesh together quite as much as they otherwise could. There's plenty of room in other books to spend an extended amount of time with these two as separate people - but if I buy a team-up book, I expect them to operate as a team. I know, I have problems. I'll tell you this Soule: if you're just getting the initial wavering angst out of the way early, and we get on with shit in the future, great.
Clear for everyone to see. It's implied the two have romantic feelings for one another, but the issue over what to do with Batman leads to a heated argument. Yeah, I know I said Diana and Clark hooking up was a no-brainer, but a long term relationship? Earlier that evening, Diana had been visited by Clark, who had brought her a rare, alien flower cut from one of the plants in his. He closes off communication when the opposite should be happening. And yeah, a whole lot of shit happens in 8 issues. I honestly prefer the relationship between Zod and Faora.
And she is in earth society 3 cover. . The real Diana wouldn't worry herself over high school dramas like that. But this was pretty good. Unfortunately, I'm not sure where thing in the Superman storylines are rite now. That concept has been around for a long time. Trying to figure out their relationship like any other couple.
But I have to admit, I did like this book which surprised me because I read the monthlies and gave up after 3, disappointed. So unless you had a crystal ball or psychic. There was no tension or flirtation between the two in the previous issues of Justice League, which made the coupling seem even more forced. Bit strange though, why would they even try to keep it hidden. I enjoy a bit of complexity and real life in my comics but this was just too much. But in this collection, the relationship is explored from several different points of view and the consequences of the relationship are fully played out with heightened stakes.
In space, a mutated Superman intercepts an Earth-bound invasion force led by and the and rescues and , who were headed to Earth to confront whoever unleashed the coma infection that is plaguing. If I bought a cat- carrier that my cat escaped from every single time I put her in it, at what point does it stop being the carriers fault, and start being mine? Ok so otherwise, I found the action scenes repetitive and over-laden, not providing any character development. Those comics sans lois sold less than the comics featuring Lois the following month in August. I gather there's some backstory that I don't know, but I just had no idea why Superman and Wonder Woman were an item. As he takes the pilots from her, promising to get them to safety, he warns Diana not to go down into the sea until he returns. Neither are the airbrushed dudes that keep popping up in my feed.
