Will DC come to their senses and finallu realise that the combo of Kal and Doana might look good on paper as the ultimate "power couple", but that in reality, he needs to get anchored back into lois in order to fulfill and complete his "link to humanity", while she needs to be about doing her Amazonian thing?


This relationship has lasted two years now, much to my surprise, and yes there have been moments when it has been almost charming to watch. The fact is though not for a minute has it ever been convincing.
To make a romance work on paper like this it has to have chemistry and genuine affection between the two characters,neither of these things have been readily apparent between Wonder Woman and Superman and I do feel that Peter Thomasi's current run on the Superman/Wonder Woman title highlights why it has been failing. The unworldly sword swinging warrior princess who loves to fight and plays to win, meets the simple farmboy from Kansas who just wants to fit in and help other people.

These two are operating at extremes in their beliefs and code of ethics. Superman the compassionate man and hero, Wonder Woman the royal commander-in-chief who is too busy enjoying the fight and wants to win - collateral damage is collateral damage to her.
Whichever way it comes out the relationship lacks any true conviction.
