Here from Justice League #15 is the WORLDSGREATESTSUPERCOUPLEEVER after Clark hands her a pair of glasses from the “Sarah Palin” collection at Wal-Mart and tells her how great a dual identity is:
She’s got to be humoring him, right? Or are we actually to believe that Wonder Woman needs Clark Kent to tell her about the powers of glasses and the importance of a dual identity so she can figure out how go out in public and do normal every day things normal every day folks do without being mobbed by people? You know, like here from Wonder Woman #4:
Stop pestering her metal heads! Zola, go get her some specs! You know I still hate what Azzarello did to the history of the Amazons but I have to give him credit for keeping the super-romance out of her book.
But that still leaves three other books that will be featuring it.
And given the above, I’m interested to see if Diana will be teaching Clark anything as the relationship plays out.
My hope is at minimum she’ll tell him to stop being a creeper who reads Lois’ private text messages and says stuff like this:
Look, the Wonder Woman/Superman relationship could be an interesting story short-term. But it has to serve both characters and not be told at the expense of another character especially a female character.
So some rules? Don’t pit Lois against Wonder Woman. Don’t make Clark into a candidate for the Nice Guys of OK Cupid Tumblr. And don’t make Wonder Woman into a pupil of Superman.
Also? No references, no matter how subtle, to “Man of Steel; Women of Kleenex.”
And you know what writer I’m side eyeing when I say this. It’s not that hard a jump from writing a comic that reads like a Letter to the Penthouse forums to that.
And to end on a positive note, Ken Rocafort draws a very pretty Superman.
