So I am disappointed with the ongoing poorly conceived romance between Wonder Woman and Superman, I have this clear in a number of blogs (I just wrote one) but at the end of the last Justice League issue (#14) there was at least a glimmer of hope for me that the writers have something more planned than just a gimmick. I am not sure if this is intentional but this actually channels and idea from a group of Justice League enemies, the Crime Syndicate of Amerika (there are spoilers ahead by the way.) The Crime Syndicate is built on a love triangle between Ultraman, Superwoman and Owlman. The roles are reversed as it is Ultraman that sits on his satellite and snipes energy blasts at the other two as his wife is having an affair with one of his allies. I don't expect the same to play out in Justice League, as the roles are reversed, but now that Batman knows about the romance between these two (as he is watching from the satellite) he is surely to use this knowledge at some point, and probably to drive a wedge between them. No one can tell of course how, but at the moment it is nice at least to see some of the old pre-new 52 universe sneaking its way into the new even if not on purpose.
