DC made a masterful move when it announced a new series entitled Superman/Wonder Woman, which will focus on the two character's "budding relationship." Let's take a look at the conversation in DC's office that led to the book's announcement.
Dan Didio: So, it's decided then. We're going to release a Superman/Wonder Woman series. You know, the Outhouse will attack us for this. They'll never let us live down a book inspired by Geoff Johns having his action figures make out after battles.
Bob Harras: WE HATES THE OUTHOUSES. WE WISHES IT WOULDS DIE *Gollum, Gollum*.
Didio: We all hate the Outhouse, Bob. But wishing that their incredibly full-haired and sexy writers would drop dead will get us nowhere. We need to figure out a way to defang them preemptively.
Jim Lee: (sitting in the shadows): I know what we need to do to take care of the Outhouse.
Harras: EATS THEM LIKE A RAW FISHES?
Lee: No... We bring in Charles Soule. (flips the collar to his polo shirt)
Didio: Brilliant, Jim! There's a reason you're the co-publisher.
Harras: GOLLUM! GOLLUM! *claps hands and cackles*
That's right, Charles Soule will be the writer of Superman/Wonder Woman. We love Soule and we think he's a damn good writer, so we're not going to mock this book at all. If there is one person who I think could actually give us an organic, non-cringeworthy Superman/Wonder Woman romance that doesn't simultaneously insult women and people of good taste, it's Soule. (Yes, I'm not a fan of the relationship thus far) I seriously have that much faith in the man to make it work.
Oh, Tony Daniel is on art, so there's that too. Here's the cover of the two characters kissing. May this be the last time we ever see a cover like that.
