It's Valentine's Day. You may have seen our poll for the best comic book couple. Now we want to give you the chance to win some free comics.

DC Comics has a copy of the latest JUSTICE LEAGUE hardcover (volume 2) and a copy of YOUNG ROMANCE: THE NEW 52 VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL to send your way.

This is where the big kiss happened.

The YOUNG ROMANCE special was released last week and contains several stories of looooove. As a bonus, it also contains several Valentine's Day cards. While the winner won't get them in time to use this year, you can always hang onto them for next year!

How can you win?

There will be one winner, selected at random. All you need to do is tell us what you think about Superman and Wonder Woman as a couple now that it's been a few months since we've seen that kiss. How long do you think they'll last as couple?

The bad news is, because we operate out of the United States, this contest is open only to those in the United States.

I don't hate it. It's actually been handled really well in Justice League with Clark and Diana really getting to be themselves. However, we all know Clark is meant to be with Lois. That said, I really don't like how Lois has been portrayed in the New 52. So.....pass?

#4 Posted by bladewolf (785 posts) - - Show Bio

I actually like the idea! I'm glad Geoff Johns is willing to tread new territory instead of the same old "Clark and Lois" deal. I don't think this pairing will last more than 2 years, if only because there are enough vocal fans of the classic pairing to pressure DC to revert to the way things were before. That said, I hope I'm wrong, because I think the two of them are very cute together and complement one another quite well.

There a good couple, I think it will last for awhile. But imagine there brake up... Metropolis will be in ruins!

#6 Posted by Batnandez (511 posts) - - Show Bio

This isn't my favorite couple in comics, but it does make some sense. I really wish DC would do a story on an accidental pregnancy. Like Supes and Wonder Woman have a kid and she hides it from him because they break up and he gets with Lois. Then the kid rebels or something like that. Marvel usually goes the trashy route so I doubt it'll ever happen.

#7 Edited by ArtisticNeedham (2274 posts) - - Show Bio

I like seeing them as a couple, I liked the scene in one of the recent JLA comics where Clark is trying to show Dianna how to hide with a secret identity. They aren't just connecting on being major powered heroes, they have so much more in common, its interesting to read.

Was it ever announced who won that Spider-Man book contest?

I really don't like Superman and Wonder Woman as a couple, like at all. It just doesn't work, there's no real spark between the characters and they don't seem to mesh well. It doesn't help that Superman and Lois Lane is such an iconic relationship that going against it will always feel sort of "wrong". It doesn't help that Superman and Wonder Woman seem to only be together because the writers think that two characters with similar power sets should bit shipped. Honestly the only time I sort of liked Superman/Wonder Woman as a couple was in Kingdom Come and even then that's because it felt a bit more organic and less of a wink towards fans who've wanted the two to be together.

#9 Posted by grifter78 (229 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's a good progression of both their stories. It's been teased in the past or just one-issue stories that quickly were forgotten. After 70+ years of Superman and Lois, it's nice to have something new.

#10 Posted by MeloDet (48 posts) - - Show Bio

While I like the relationship, it's not so much because I am specifically a fan of SM/WW, it's more that I am a fan of Superman/NotLoisLane. I don't mind seeing them get together a couple of years from now, but hopefully we will get a few other relationships after Wonder Woman as well, because once they get together, that chance is sort of gone.

#11 Posted by AngelRodBronx (1 posts) - - Show Bio

I think they make a great super couple.

#12 Posted by Drummer007 (111 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the idea because it's different from the normal writings and its something a lot of people want to see. Clark needs to be with someone who understands his own struggles and also help Diana with her's. It will make for some award moments with the League and after the break up and all. (I mean, Clark has to end up with Lois at some point.) It will be interesting how the whole thing plays out (who will break who's heart? Will it be because of Lois? Will the League have something to do with the break up?). I think the whole relationship will last about 20-24 issues with a few not really mentioning or dealing with the relationship. I think it would be nice to see them together in their individual comics like Action Comics or Wonder Woman or Superman but then again Geoff Johns isn't writing any of those.

I always liked the idea of the two of them together. Then again, I never really liked Lois much. She always seemed to be pushing Clark off to the side. Given that I identified with Clark a lot more than I identified with Kal-El, I never liked how dismissive Lois tended to be of him.

I never really liked Lois either, I always felt she just snubbed Clark and was only interested in him when she knew he was Superman. But then again I didn't read much of Superman pre-New 52, so I may have the "wrong end of the stick".

It's an interesting revision to the characters. I just hope there isn't a super wedding crossover event planned in the future.

I think Wonder Woman and Superman should stay together long enough for one of them to cheat on each-other and have them flip out!

#19 Posted by zombietag (1497 posts) - - Show Bio

It won't last too long because we know Lois and Supes will get back together at some point, and Wonder Woman is too.... well you know.

#20 Posted by Darthmat (83 posts) - - Show Bio

As a whole, I think it's an alright idea. Pairings with different characters could be much more interesting (either with Batman is awesome, for example, as evidenced by Justice League Unlimited and Apollo/Midnighter). But two of the most powerful superheroes hooking up could lead to some interesting events, so I do my best to keep an open mind.

#21 Posted by SuperSlayin (67 posts) - - Show Bio

Superhero romance just never works out. But I guess if a super powered beings are going to get romantic it might as well be with each other. Lessens the risk of lover-napping

#22 Posted by ImFatBatman (72 posts) - - Show Bio

Interesting idea but I dont think it will last but happy to see super heroes being together.

#23 Posted by NixonV3 (33 posts) - - Show Bio

Everyone hates change but the goal of the new 52 was to reinvigorate the characters (mainly superman), allowing for new stories to be told. This relationship is exactly a component dc was looking for. Instead of always having a damsel in distress Superman has someone who can match him, and charge into battle at his side as an equal. This creates a new dynamic someone Superman can relate with while at the same time clash with via there moral codes. People should open up more. The only complaint is that we haven't really seen much of this couple but hopefully the future will bring new energized stories.

#24 Posted by usabfb (58 posts) - - Show Bio

Personally, I like the idea of the two of them together. I don't like the idea of a superhero falling in love with a non-superhero, because of how much havoc that wreaks with their secret identity. I mean, we all know the woes that Peter Parker has suffered due to being Spider-Man and still trying to have a normal life. How many times has he had to miss a date with Mary Jane, made Aunt May worry, or generally screwed up his social life? Too. Many. To. Count. This way, the two of them can love each other and still kick ass, not having to worry about where the other one is. SupermanXLoisLane has always bored me, and Geoff Johns has the opportunity to explore the characters of Diana and Clark, show both of these characters in a romantic relationship, and hopefully not fall back on things we've seen before (SupermanXLois).

A lot of my opinions of the character are held over from the Superman comics I read when I was younger, and most of them were quite old, from the 60's and 70's since those were what were around (my mom collected comics when she was really young and there were these boxes of old comics that I'd go digging through when I was little), and in all of those Lois was kind of awful to Clark in an lot of ways.

Not completely crazy about it, I was kinda digging Wonder Worman's relationship with Steven Trevor so I didnt see this coming. Hopefully this is not something that lasts for a long time, but if there are good stories that might change my mind.

#27 Posted by Mr. Kamikaze (530 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't see them lasting very long, hooking two of the Big Three up just seems like such an easy match up that it'd be just as boring as Superman and Lois. Only diffidence is Wonder Woman isn't a journalist. DC will split them up soon, I would guess, send their separate ways. Frankly, I have always been intrigued by the idea of Wonder Woman and Aquaman shacking up, but he has Mera I suppose, who I do love so I would rather thy not get split.

#29 Posted by SHale (7 posts) - - Show Bio

Although the Superman and Lois relationship is iconic, I applaud DC for switching it up. This only adds to the altered story line and there is always room to revisit the Superman/Lois dynamic at a later date. We have plenty of time!

#30 Posted by impossibilly (892 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's a cool twist that they're a couple now. Ivan Reis draws date scenes well. I don't know how long their romance will last, but something tells me this relationship won't make it out of 2013. If a break up does come, Superman better watch his back, as hell hath no fury like a (Wonder) woman scorned.

superman and wonder woman are the most powerful couple. In kingdome come we saw this. Think the arymy they could build!

#32 Posted by IronAngelX (198 posts) - - Show Bio

I think that it's great that Superman and Wonder Woman are together! I hope that this is the new status quo, and although relationships are flighty in comics anymore I do hope that these two remain together. It is nice to see Superman move on from Lois Lane because both characters need a relationship apart from each other. I love that Wonder Woman has been exploring Superman's life behind the cape and I do hope that Superman does the same with Wonder Woman! I even made a mug with Wonder Woman and Superman kissing for my wife on Christmas. I've been trying to convert her for a while. But overall, I just wish my wife would wear a Wonder Woman outfit for me, haven't convinced her yet, but, it'll happen. lol

No, this isn't correct in the slightest. Lois was already Clark's fiancee when he revealed to her his secret identity. He did it because he wanted the woman he loved to know everything about him.

I think that it is a bad idea for them to be in a relationship when they need to go into combat together. They shouldn't be watching each others backs while they should be watching someone even more important: Batman. He is the most important member on the team (and DC comics in general) and needs them both to protect him from super-powered foes while he eventually wins the day. It's all about focus. Batman is the focus.

@bladewolf: the wonder woman and superman romance has been done b4 so this isnt anything new what Geoff John should had been focusing is the character of cyborg like he his doing with aquaman in Throne of Atlantis i mean cyborg character in the new 52 had little to nothing of development since the new 52 started (brw srry for my English it not my 1st language)

They should stay together for the rest of the New 52. I think it is pretty nice to see this kind of relationship between heroes. They deserve to be happy and try to have a "normal" life.

#39 Posted by naylor11 (65 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's good that Superman has found someone because Lois doesn't seem to be very interested in him. The same with Steve Trevor. The 2 would be good for each other because they can relate to one another and there can be some really good stories about their relationship. However, I do not think that it will last. I think that they will begin to have problems after the Trinity War. It sounds like there will be a lot of shades of grey in this event and a lot of people will be divided. I think that Superman and Wonder Woman could see different points of view during the event.

#40 Posted by DestineSavior (9 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman and Wonder woman..eh. Atleast if they ever have a child, it would be over-powered. Good feeling it won't last long, but its cool to see for the moment.

#41 Posted by JDevil (56 posts) - - Show Bio

@SmashBrawler: Well like I said my info on Clark and Lois almost totally comes from a handful of Golden and Silver age comics, a few Modern ones and then New 52. So I figured there was a chance that I could be wrong.

There was also cartoons and movies but I figured they weren't exactly canon.

hmm..lets see..maybe actually show them as a couple would help.Yeah Batman knows because he is all pervy and stuff, but aside from DC TELLING us they are together, all we have is a kiss and a dinner date so far

I think the relationship is interesting because it goes against the grain since Lois and Superman are the traditional couple.

#44 Posted by insanepayne7 (19 posts) - - Show Bio

I would prefer they not be together, because every possible future where Clark and Diana end up together it usually turns out bad for everyone else. Just because they are two of the biggest characters doesn't mean they would be good together. Clark should be with Lois and Diana with Steve. The stories have been good though and it is interesting to see, but hopefully it doesn't last.

I think he is great with her, they don't need to hold back he doesn't have to worry about saving her. I think that he will eventually get with his true love just like peter will get back with Mary Jane because that's what the world knows but for now its great to see something different

#46 Posted by sniprizzle (19 posts) - - Show Bio

Mixed feelings. When I first saw Superman and Wonder Woman kiss I was shocked. I felt Supes would get back with Lois eventually but since the initial shock, the couple has been growing on me. If they're both happy with this relationship, then I say enjoy the ride for as long as it last to wherever it may go.

#47 Posted by Press Oblivion (1643 posts) - - Show Bio

I think that Superman and Wonder Woman as a couple is Amazing! I have been waiting for this for as long as I can remember and I'm glad to see that DC is taking a chance on this.

I feel that Wonder Woman & Superman have a great deal in common and they represent ideals and that their adventures can also be lessons for real life, something you can take home with you, demonstrating that they aren't really gods but people like you and I with extraordinary and real world problems, choices, and sacrifices.

This relationship, that they share, offers another layer to the notion that they are just people at the end of it all and we all can relate to wanting someone who understands us from beginning to end, I feel that this is why they can work together so well.

That said, I also think that their differences will test their resolve as well, coming from vastly different cultures as well as the choices they make to handle and issue.

#48 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (9183 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't mind the couple, but I like Lois and Clark better. I think if someone who doesn't read comics would be surprised that Lois and Clark have broken up and now Superman is with Wonder Woman. I just think that Lois and Clark is such an iconic relationship to forget about.

I say they last two more months, they get in an argument about the use of force. Within a year Clark is with Lois--the only relationship either should be in.

It's an okay relationship. Nothing new. As for how long they will last? I give it a year and a half at most.
