Dont really like the superman/wonder woman pairing. But its good to see wonder woman in another book

Edited by ComicMan24

I actually like this idea, as I like the pairing too. And if people don't like it, you can always not read it :P

Although I do remember Johns stating somewhere that those two are going to break up soon and that things would get really nasty but I guess I could be wrong. Plus WW is finally getting another book.

Sigh...why are they still a couple...

Why do people not like this pairing?

What are your reasons?

Posted by TheManInTheShoe

They don't fit as the only ones in a book. Batman/Superman is Night and Day, they're perfect together, but this...ugh.

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

On one hand, I hate the idea of them as a couple. On the other hand, it brings WW the respect she deserves as one of the Trinity. They had a Superman/Batman series before, so why NOT have WW paired with another Trinity Member for a companion series?

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Who the hell asked for this?

Posted by lilben42

@ghidoran: Its weird because I thought their relationship would end after the trinity war. We will see.

Posted by animehunter

It's about time, I've always thought those two needed to team up with their own book

Edited by xDeMondWood

This could be really interesting I'll buy it.

Posted by Hawkguy

Meh. Tony Daniel is awesome but... I think this is weird. What if they break up? Will Superman be the partner that gets groceries? I can see it already... "Clark!!! You forgot tomatoes" "*sigh* (slouches shoulders), I'll be back babe"

I'll check it out nontheless. Not the biggest fan of this relationship and dianas bitchiness but it could be fun.

Posted by johnny_spam

I hate this relationship so much. I wish it would end.

I am intrigued

@the_last_arashikage: To be frank, I don't either WW or Superman should be dating, it's cliche.

But it's happening so I support it, plus I like going against the grain of the main stream whiny crowd

Posted by Cavemold

Will superman break WW chasty belt? The endless memes a wait!!

Posted by fartvader

An Ongoing? Is DC planning a very long term relationship between these two? I don't know what to make out of this announcement but I'll be on board though. :)

Edited by Outside_85

I predict it's demise at #8, because it's premise is the weak to non-existent romance between the two characters and not the sensible choice of the two characters going on adventures together.

Posted by Azura_Thena

Who the hell asked for this?

I think maybe the target audience is us fangirls that love both of these characters. :)

On sale OCTOBER 5 • 32 pg, FC, $5.99 US • RATED T&A

Combo pack edition: $7.99 US

Retailers: This issue will ship with ten covers, with nine covers being SUPERMAN and WONDER WOMAN kissing and the last cover being SUPERMAN and WONDER WOMAN kissing with BATMAN watching. Please see the order form for more information. A new epic begins with the debut of this new, ongoing series! Don’t miss as we organically and naturally intertwine DC's biggest characters (after BATMAN) into one awkward hot mess of a situation.

This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.

Why are their noses stuck together? Notice how Wonder Woman's lasso is trying to grab her sword in the back ground? It probably wants to perform a mercy killing. Don't leave me Demon Knights!!!!

This romance, this book, everything about it is uninteresting and made of fail. Sales of Justice League have been falling since the Superman and Wonder Woman romance, and recent issues of Superman publicized with Wonder Woman have shown no benefit from the relationship. I can see this book with a good debut because of curiosity and publicity, but overall I think it's a terrible idea. In light of the obvious pop culture pull Superman and Lois Lane have, given the craving critics of Man of Steel had for more Clark/Lois in the blockbuster film, it seems tone deaf on the part of DC to proceed with this relationship and to push it to the extent that they are. I'd rather Wonder Woman get another comic aside from her own that's just about her, like Superman has in his Action book, then for her to be relegated to second billing and love interest. No, thank you.

Cliches arent always bad plus Lois is like an anchor of Boring.

And co-signed. I like being against the Whiners and Haters

i asked Charles Soule about that. He said hes aiming for somthing much more universal

I don't know how to really feel about this series, but I will give the first issue a try

Couldn't they just give Wonder Woman a second solo title?

I know she sells less than Batman and Superman, but if they're the Trinity, then they could at least try and represent them more equally. They could call it All-Star Comics.

This should be interesting.

I would've taken Batman/Wonder Woman. Superman/Wonder Woman just feels forced.

Posted by Cavemold

I guarantee a 3.99 price for it though/

Edited by RoninLoganX

Yeah, I don't see this lasting. The whole Superman-Wonder Woman pairing was a lame attempt to grab attention and bring in new readers, which is fine I guess in a team book, but to devote an entire series to it? I just don't think there's enough there for a worthwhile story.

Posted by Rixec

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Edited by lorex

I think this is a great idea. The New 52 was suppost to be all about taking the characters in new directions without the bagage of the past interfering and this seems to personify that. We have not seen much of a relationship from them thus far asside from a few scattered kisses. I do hope this title is more like Superman - Batman where it shows their friendship along with heroic activities. With Superman - Wonder Woman you could have that as well as more details focusing on their developing romance. I will be certainly checking this title out.

Posted by Kal'smahboi

I'd rather have a full on Trinity book. I really have very little interest in this, or in Supes having as many books as Batman.

Edited by mcbean

This might be good

Same. I mean, I'm a little hesitant because DC seems to be really pushing the Superman/Wonder Woman thing and I've always liked him with Lois, but at the same time...why not? If we can have a Batman/Superman book, why not a Superman/Wonder Woman book?

Although, that begs the question...why not just release a Trinity book?

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

@the_last_arashikage: Nope the anchor of boring is Mary Jane ^-^

Actually I'll admit my bias and say I'm mostly in this to spite the Batman shippers...and shippers in general

I like this ^-^
