DC and Match.com have released fake dating profiles of Superman and Wonder Woman following last week's announcement that the two characters would begin dating in this week's issue of Justice League.
Both profiles reveal the characters to be spiritual but not religious, have no strong political views, and confirm that this might be one of the most painful attempts at cross-promotion ever.
Some tidbits from the profiles: Wonder Woman likes Thai food, ice cream and cats. Superman has a tendency to use exclamation points and smileys and openly talks about his Fortress of Solitude. Wonder Woman also discusses her lack of experience with men and drops a half-dozen mythological references. Superman, meanwhile, discusses his ability to outrace locomotives, his ability to leap over tall buildings, and his tendency to counter-rotate the earth to fix screw-ups.
To be blunt, the profiles are almost painful to look at. They come off as sad, desperate and half-hearted, much like the writing on Justice League. The only bright side is that Match.com didn't reveal the messages shared between the two of them, which would reveal Superman as either being overly enamored with his own abs or painfully awkward.
