The New 52 brought about a whole lot of change in the DC Universe. From what I understand, these changes include Barbra Gordon being Batgirl again, Stephanie Brown not being around (or seen) anymore, and Superman never married Lois Lane. Clark has been a bachelor for a while, but it looks like that will change in ‘Justice League’ #12.
According to Entertainment Weekly, who exclusively revealed the cover by DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee, The Man of Steel’s new leading lady is Wonder Woman! Sorry, Lois, I guess you weren’t super enough for Clark Kent.
‘Justice League’ writer Geoff Johns says that a potentially tragic event will affect the whole Justice League and “cause Superman and Wonder Woman to seek solace in each other and move from super-powered colleagues to power couple.” He then adds that this isn’t just a one and done sort of thing. This is the new status quo of DC Comics.
Fans have been dreaming this pairing for a long time, but is it really something that they’ll embrace? My favorite argument comes from ‘Mallrats’ character Brodie Bruce, who argued that these two dating was inevitable. After all Lois Lane’s human anatomy couldn’t bear to withstand his Kryptonian biological makeup. In Brodie’s exact words, “If Lois gets a tan, the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way Superman could bang regular chicks is if he does it with a kryptonite condom, but that would probably kill him!”
