In the upcoming issue #12 of the rebooted Justice League (The New 52) by DC Comics, Superman and Wonder Woman will start to date.
In the comic—which goes on sale 29 August 2012—writer Geoff Johns did away with Superman’s marriage to Lois Lane.
Instead, in the issues leading to issue #12, Superman and Wonder Woman get flirty.
He hints at “some event—possibly tragic—will impact every member of the Justice League, and cause Superman and Wonder Woman to seek solace in each other and move from super-powered colleagues to power couple,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
“This is the new status quo,” Johns told Entertainment Weekly, adding that the relationship will have a seismic impact on all the heroes and villains in the DC Universe.
But no matter how powerful a couple and what a great match they make, Johns adds that readers should “expect the new couple to face some unique challenges in their own right”.
