Move over, Batman!
The Man of Steel has a new ongoing partner: his girlfriend, the Amazon Princess.
Superman/Wonder Woman will explore the developing romantic relationship between the two DC Comics icons. Readers first saw the duo kiss in last year’s Justice League #12.
Since then, the duo has been inseparable and have helped each other multiple times including dealing with her former friend becoming the villainous Cheetah, fending off an invasion from Aquaman’s evil half-brother Orm and dueled with a new god.
However, only a few people in the DC Universe know this secret romantic relationship exists and some of them do not approve of the relationship.
The Dark Knight recently confronted his friend and warned him, while both of them have weaknesses; Wonder Woman does not have any weaknesses and advises him to find one. Perhaps their mistrust of each other and the events of the upcoming Trinity War crossover will be addressed when the new ongoing series drops in October. Swamp Thing writer Charles Soule and former Action Comics and Detective Comics artist Tony S. Daniel will be the creative team.
In addition to the Justice League titles will expand to four titles sometime in October (which Newsarama is speculating). The classic 1980’s Justice League creative team: Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire will blast fans to the future where they will be introduced the future versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.
DC Comics also released of a drawing of the Flash’s futuristic counterpart to CBR yesterday. That character shares similar traits to fan-favorite Wally West, the modern day Flash that has not appeared in the DC Universe since its New 52 relaunch.
Finally, DC released an image that showed a bloodied Green Lantern ring and the phrase “Lights Out” as the only thing on the poster. Could this mean that darker days are coming back to the Green Lantern franchise?
Readers should keep their ears peeled for more details, coming soon.
