Well, we probably all assumed this was happening, but we didn't really expect comic book panel confirmation.
It's been a few months now since Superman and Wonder Woman had their DC Universe-altering first kiss in the pages of Justice League #12, and the relationship is apparently still going quite strong. Some fans may have embraced the new power couple, while others long for the days when Lois Lane was Supes' main squeeze, but either way the Man of Steel/Amazon pair-up doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and thanks to a panel from this week's Superman #16, we've got confirmation that it's definitely not a chaste romance.
"Superman's Current Lover." What a ... delicate way of describing the relationship. And, as you can see from the dialogue, Diana is definitely devoted to her man.
Obviously both these heroes are adults, and it's fair to assume their relationship is more than just a shy flirtation with a kiss stolen here and there, but did you expect to see a word like "lover" pop up? And where will this lead? Things seem to be staying serious between these two, so we have to wonder if we're going to see a Kryptonian/Amazon wedding somewhere down the line. And if that happens, does Batman sit on the bride's side or the groom's side?
What do you think? Are you sick of this relationship, or are you ready to see if it ever goes beyond "lover"?
