Wonder Woman and Superman in A View From Diana's Gallery (New 52) X- Men #2 in which it is revealed that the two are seeing a marriage counselor. Aug 28, In official DC canon, however, Superman and Wonder Woman have always At the advice of her patron goddesses, the Amazon Queen The couple finally married in the very last issue of the first volume of the Wonder Woman title. After 's New 52 reboot, which cleaned continuity house just as.
That concept has been around for a long time. It was addressed in Kingdom Comethe great Mark Waid book. Most recently, in Justice League 12 Octoberthey had the kiss heard 'round the world They're arguably two of the most powerful beings in the whole DC Universe and they're romantic together so just imagine the adventures and excitement that can come from that. There are maybe people on the planet that can fly, and two of them are Wonder Woman and Superman. At the same time, they grew up in very, very different cultures and situations.
They have extraordinarily different backgrounds and there is a lot that they have to learn about each other too.
Superman and Wonder Woman's New 52 Romance Erased From Continuity
Wonder Woman has the background as a warrior dating back to when she was very little. Aresin the New 52, was her warrior teacher when she was She has a strategic, practical approach to battles where Superman, it's not like he rushes in guns-a-blazing, but he has a slightly less schooled approach to his attack. And maybe a book that has a little bit of romance in it, a little bit of sex appeal, you know, something that would, for lack of a better example, that hits on the Twilight audience.
Soule said, "We wanted to go big off the bat. We wanted to stake our claim and make it clear that this was a book that mattered — not just from the idea of the couple at its heart, but also from the events that would be depicted in it and their impact on the DCU as a whole, and in Superman's life and Wonder Woman's life.
About their sacrifice, Soule said, "I think that they did what they needed to do in that moment. I thought it was a beautiful moment where they came together. As far as we know, they saved the world for the umpteenth time.
I think that every relationship has its ups and downs. Right now, they're very, very strong together. Whether they'll always be that way — who knows? It's a relationship, so it could change.
What I do think is crazy is that the Tower, which supposedly released Doomsday, thinks they can simply scoop him up and contain him for their purposes. Will this be a super-intelligent Doomsday? Or simply a monster?
I talked about the awkward panel progression in the invisible plane sequence and the heat vision sequence. The Tower submarine closes in on Doomsday. Then there is splash of the submarine exploding. Now I can assume that Doomsday leapt out of the shark that had swallowed him, swam to the submarine, and destroyed it. And that would be a fine guess.
But I wish I could say I knew that. At first I didn't know what was happening in that second lower panel.
Was the sub firing on Doomsday? Or Doomsday heading to the sub? As a reader I don't know in what direction that action is happening. Again, I have to commend Soule for trying to reconcile the disparate takes on these characters. It is a shame that writers have to deal with such diverse representations of popular characters.

You would think the higher-ups at DC would lay out a plan or template for writers to follow. So while London smolders, Superman and Wonder Woman catch up while sitting on a rooftop. She divulges that she is now the Goddess of War, and she hopes to use that change mankind's views on the topic. Might be hard for Superman But this scene at the end of the book, again trying to streamline all the presentations of Diana, made me question if Soule went too far.
Remember, in the Wonder Woman main title, writer Brian Azzarello has shown Diana in street clothes listening to rock music at a club. That Diana hasn't been seen anywhere else Soule has had Wonder Woman questioning Superman's love of humanity. She has asked him why he has a civilian identity. She has talked to her friends about why he would have a secret identity. She has even tried to talk Superman out of being Clark in this book.
It is one of the things that has made me think these two aren't meant for each other. But then Soule has Diana take Clark to a club to dance.
It is a club she is a regular at She slinks onto the dance floor, telling Clark how much she loves to dance. And he is happy they have this night. They know her name! It is this sort of uneven characterization that has plagued the New 52 all along, especially Superman and Wonder Woman.
