while i agree there, it's grown past that IMO.

and it will continue to do so under tomasi who plans to test it.

as for it being a sucess, i think the fact that it got a book in the first place should disprove the any notion otherwise, or that that book has been recieving good reception both in sales and reviews for the most part albeit with some hiccups via doomed

I wouldn't say so, it's just raced past it and just depended on the readers to imagine the glue that's keeping these two together.

Hopefully he gives the relationship some actual meat to test.

It was a sales gimmick, selling stuff is what they do. As for reviews... depends on who you ask, I see quite a few primarily WW fans who aren't at all pleased it's her that's getting hammered so Superman can swoop in a save the day.

Boring issue. In the previews a few months ago it said it would tell us how she got her bracers. I hate when they change stuff

I doubt they changed anything. Solicitations are written in advance by marketing people who aren't privy to whats actually going to happen.

I said bonds. And since the book of SM/WW exists because of the relationship that pretty much makes your rant about it pointless.

The relationship didn't need to exist in the first place for this book to be on the selves.

Again the book exists because the success of the relationship got more attention and so the series with just them was made.

What success? Johns made it appear out of nowhere, it barely had any run time at all before this book was announced. It would have been far better if this book had existed first and then built an actual relationship between them before maturing into a coupling.

I kinda felt the story was lacking & as I feared, it looks like the contest has been removed from Diana's origin along with the mystical clay origin. She has been neutered of much of what made her unique. :((

Pinocchio, adam, Frankenstein, golems

let's stop pretending the clay origin was actually unique shall we

It does tie into a common creation myth but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It still isn't as cliche as the New 52 origin though.

But what is really more cliche than the other? Because copying the origins of humanity used in several major religions and then claiming it's unique in some way seems to contradict itself quite badly. (Note: I am not claiming the New 52 version is 'more unique', but noone has said it was)

@scorpio_cassadine: Because you dont have the same perception of quality that everyone else does.

Man please, you wouldn't know quality if it drove up to your door in a stretch limousine.

Actually I would, and if your idea of it got out wearing a purple suit with zebra fur-lining I'd kick it down the stairs.

@mpfly88: Read the last part of the opening paragraph again; "on an equal footing to him", 'him' referring to Superman, not Doomsday.

He's very good in Gone Girl, he's getting better as an actor.

Which is also a movie he directs, is it not?

Raven again just magic we have had male magic users forever so unless we want to trace back to the dark ages women did not come first in this field

No, Raven is not 'just magic'. Primarily she is actually an Empath, quite possibly the first of her kind because thats how Wolfman made her different from the likes of the Phantom Stranger and Dr. Strange (two characters he didn't want to replicate into the NTT).
