So after a dormant period of a few months - long enough to dodge the crappy and pointless Trinity War, anyway, if not to quite miss the end of Forever Evil - I think it's time to revive the Wonder Woman reviews. Rather than save them up and do them all in one go, though, I think it'll probably make more sense and give me a higher chance of succeeding if I review each comic as it comes out.
Appropriately enough, for my first new review, it's Superman/Wonder Woman #1, which horrifyingly enough is only the first new second title for Wonder Woman in 61 years. As you may have noticed, though, she has second billing in this to Superman, because to mirror the successful bromance of Superman/Batman, we have here what DC hopes will be the successful romance of Superman and Wonder Woman.
Indeed, one of the most controversial aspects of the DC's nu52 has been the jettisoning of the Lois Lane-Clark Kent-Superman triangle of days gone by and the Steve Trevor-Diane Prince-Wonder Woman triangle of even farther off days gone by in favour of this new pairing, hinted at in pre-nu52 issues, fulfilled in alternative continuities but never official canon in DC's main lines. Until now.
Now, following brief flirtations with the relationship by writers in Superman, Justice League and more bizarrely Young Romance (but notably, thanks to Brian Azzarello, not in Wonder Woman), we finally have a title that's dedicated to it. Hooray!
One question is: will it be a success? An even better question is: will it make for a good comic. Let's answer that question after the jump. Beware of epic spoilers ahead (sorry).
