Yes, yes I'm late to the party with new 52 Superman and DC comics in general. School, moving, financial problems, all hampering my comic book needs.
Anyways, over the years I've been told countless times by people that "Superman is boring, Mary Sue" all that jazz and I usually ignore it since I've always been a die-hard Superman fan. But mostly I was really looking forward to New 52 Superrman taking away the spotlight away from Batman and being the best DC character ever.
And when I heard he wasn't going to be auto paired with Lois I was extremely excited, as he could be with someone interesting, someone who was his opposite, someone who could bring excitement in a relationship and in his books. But when i saw this atrocity I nearly flipped a table. Seriously DC? You've been trying to make Superman interesting for years, and one of the first things you do is pair him up with Wonder Woman in the new series?
Why DC would you pair Superman and Wonderwoman? The most generic, boring Superhero couple in the history of comics. Diana is literally the female version of Superman, nothing interesting could spawn from this. What are they going to save the day together, then fly off into the sunlight and share a kiss? Really? And don't bring up Kingdom Come Diana and Clark, it was an alternate universe where anything could have "drama".
Now most people are going to be like "get over it", "who cares it's going to blow over." or "you're focusing way to much on the couple and not the actual comic"
Well I care. I love Superman, he is an iconic character and represents the American wat. And I really wanted him and his comics to be an interesting, dramatic and action packed read.
Unfortunately this may be a small thing, but its a complete step in the wrong direction for writing Superman.
Hopefully this blows over fast, but we shall see.
