Clark and Diana clubbing. They are not too stuffy and know how to have a good time. WW is so cute here. I really like her more in this book that in her own. She's so kinda reserved there. Even when she was in that club scene Azz/Chiang wrote her in it was a mosh pit with her standing around and yet apart from everyone. That didn't totally feel like WW to me. I can see her loving music and movement and being social, unlike Clark who is forced to act shy and awkward. But Kent shows us he has some moves. They bring out a fun side in each other.

Yeah, but didn't pre New 52 Supes take an explosion equivalent to "A million nuclear blasts" in the Hunter Prey story? Admittedly he wasn't injured like Clark was in this issue, but I was still a little surprised one nuke hurt him that much. Obviously I appreciate only a small number of super-heroes have the durability to tank even one point blank nuclear blast!

Pre new 52 was in his 30ties and Clark is only 27...dude didn't even start to fly when we first met him. His power grows over time. We can't compare the two. As for bench pressing the earth...that's Lobdell and what does that even mean? He can lift? And as others have pointed out he took a hell of a lot of punishment before the nuke and then shielded Diana with his cape, taking the brunt of the blast and had zero access to sunlight after the blast. Whatever was stored in his cells would have been affected.

I have to stop lying to myself. I hate this book so much. It's such poor characterization of Wonder Woman. It's just poorly done. I tried to convince myself and everyone that this book is awesome because I support Superman/Wonder Woman's relationship but Soule just makes Wonder Woman such a weak ass b!tch, it's insulting. @lvenger, I'm calling you out buddy, you have won, I submit.

:P That'll do it for me.

You've been singing this since the beginning of time. Even when Comicvine gives it 5 stars. What's new?

@johnqestion: Actually FB didn't, New Genesis put her in a 3 day medical coma.

And if we just have to accept Superman being the white knight that he is because thats just part of his personality, why does it have to be at the expense of Diana's? He is a Kansas farmboy with a good heart, she is a soldier, a leader and the God of War, it would make more sense for her to carry him as he is in a far worse state by the looks of it than she is.

He beat her good and proper that New Genesis had to do that. So yeah it still stands. You're trying to split hairs. And what expense of Diana? She was messed up. How in hell is she supposed to carry him when she said she can't even fly? And she has legitimate reason in the narrative to say that because she took a hell of a lot of punishment. Sorry you want to read WonderGod and not Wonder Woman. Did you ask that when Azz put her out of commission for 3 days because he wanted to shoe horn New Genesis? Bet you swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

@johnqestion: @movieartman: You guys mad or something? You aren't apart of the gag so you wouldn't understand.

So I take it you pre-empting or predicting someone's typical response? Okay. No worries.

So not sure what the problem is about Clark holding Diana...are we really counting crap like that despite the narrative supporting she needs help? Those who read Azzarello's Wonder Woman know First Born alone put her in a 3 day coma and she needed help to recover in New Genesis of all places. Here we had her get battered by an over powered Zod/Faora, suffer radiation poisoning, weak but using her last reserves of strength to save Clark from withering away, and then getting blasted by the ghost soldiers. Honestly to god, get a better criticism if you want to make one instead of trying to attack Superman for just being Superman and logically at the time the one capable of holding her.

Great to see Soule bring in more WW elements in an organic and none corny way. Badass Doomsday pages.

Clark and Diana dancing was quite cute.

Deserves a 4 out of 5.

It's so idiotic when people who don't support a book just come to troll and behave like children. Like who the hell cares? Go buy a book you want to flipping read and write some sense than nonsense.

Issue #6 was amazing, wasn't it? Wow. That last page. Can tell the last time I saw a page that made me react the way I did when I saw that.

Also this was a great moment.

@metaljimmor: please, you're making a mountain out of a molehill, you lot are by all means whingier than I am. I'll leave this holy place of devotion as soon as you stop sending for me.

This is one instance I am baffled at this rating. This issue deserves 5 stars.
