The rumors are true. Superman and Wonder Woman are a couple.
For Superman fans irate by the fact that his marrage to Lois Lane was OMD'd by the events of Flashpoint, get ready to be even more irate. After seeing Clark Kent getting cockblocked by Lois Lane's Nu-52 beau Jonathan Carroll, fans wondered if the Man of Steel was going to find himself a new Woman of Kleenex, or remain a virgin all his life. Justice League #12 answers that question by having Supes hook up with the Amazon Princess, Wonder Woman. And it's apparently not a one-night stand, either.
"This is the new status quo,” says Geoff Johns, Justice League writer and most hated man at DC not named Dad Didio. Johns' JL conspirator, artist Jim Lee chimes in by adding that “Hopefully this will raise a lot of eyebrows.”
Well, it's bound to raise a lot of something. At least in the Man of Steel's pants. DC may have to start thinking about bringing the red trunks back after this one. It should be noted that both Rich Johnston, Bleeding Cool's resident shipper in chief, and the Outhouse reported last June about DC's plans to pair up the two heroes, but many believed the plans were dropped to preserve the sensitive stability of the Internet.
The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw. Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
