it just break my heart to know that the heroes who make the big money are the ones who get everything, look, superman is just batmans punching bag and he will someday loose Diana to him and much more but its ok he is just the F@ß&ng Batman and i love Batman but im somehow starting to hate him!
Man i forgot! your artwork is fantastic its refreshing to see your versions from dc heroes, very inspiring
Batman is a crazy rich guy in fancy suit yes(if you have a problem with that I ask why you do not have if you not have a problem with how does superman fly, and amount of power be dictated by the color of sun), and fans obsession with his crime solving abilities, changing the reason why he is able to accomplish tasks creating the "because I'm batman" reasoning, is stupid. Then again it mostly comes from Fans, and fans are annoying, irrational, and just plain stupid at times, so I implore you not to dislike all versions of the character is poorly written and has annoying fans, if you don't want to then everything is still fine.
I love the picture but I still don't see the appeal of WW/SM. To me it just comes across as bad fan fiction where they are in a relationship not because they actually have good cemostry as Diana and Clark, but because they are Wonder Woman and Superman. So could some explain what they see in there relationship that makes it work.
Well... The first thing I recommend is you go read "Superman and Wonder Woman" in the new DC publications, it one of the few things DC has done exceptionally well in their new line, it will give you a far better demonstration than any explanation; but even if you don't and just look at the old 52 there was always a deep sense of affection from both sides, Diana even almost confessed once but the writers chickened out,. If you want a direct example, Google Action Comics #818. The main reason they haven't gotten together before was more or less this: aremke.deviantart.com/art/He-s…, if either character was in a stable supportive relationship with someone they could consider an equal then it's harder for lazy writer to churn out issues since the damsel in distress bit will have to be mostly cut out along with tons of other monotonous drama (how often does Lois intentionally get in to trouble for her own selfish ends, completely disregarding the huge danger she puts Superman and may others in, all for the "big scoop").
Imagine you had to live your whole life putting on different masks everyone, even the people who supposedly know your secret identity, never allowing to yourself to truly relax and let your guard down. Thats what it is like for these two, because even as members of the JL there comes a stigma for the most powerful beings, the stigma of never allowing yourself to be wrong, of being the gods everyone NEEDS you to be to keep the peace or worse still, to make sure humanity doesn't come to fear you. There is more to superman than just Superman, there is Clark Kent of Smallville, Kal-El of Krypton, Superman the god, Superman the man, and something in between all those that Diana refers to as Kal; and Wonder Woman has just as many masks, if not more. Unlike hero's like Batman (more like anti-hero) whose life is dominated by one persona (Bruce Wayne is is part of Batman not the other way around) these two find a balance for each portion of their lives; Clark Kent understands Diana Prince, Kal-El of Krypton understands Diana of the Amazons, Wonder Woman understands Superman, the ever strong daughter understands the ever virtuous son, and so on. Then comes the tiny bit in between it all, the one that they can't show anyone else because others have no place for this part, the part that has everything all together and it is a mess, a mess others don't want; but imagine you had one person who held no other expectation of you other than to be you, what wouldn't you give to have just a few precious moments free of all the mask when you could share the deepest part of yourself with someone else, wouldn't you love that person?
There is also the physical aspect (that everyone loves to dismiss for reasons I can't fathom), imagine you live in a world made of wet cardboard where every moment of your life you have to be extremely careful with everything you touch becuase every hug, handshake, or pat on the back could mean serious harm to any normal person. How absolutely terrifying and painful must it be to be afraid to reach out and touch the one you love because if you lose yourself in your emotions for even a second you could end up holding a mangled corpse, does that not weight on who you can keep closest to you? Would you not be overjoyed to have someone you could love and hold without worrying about hurting them. I could go on with this but I would need a book to explain the entirety of these two and why the works together on more than a physical level but I have rambled enough.
Nice argument but I still disagree. I think Clark's relationship with Lois helped him keep in touch with humanity and the common man. I also think that it could have been used to help establish some character traits for Clark, personally I would have written him as being a little nerdy and have him be a stay at home dad which would have also given more time for running the administration side of the Justice League.
Now I agree that they need to stop making Lois the helpless damsel. I would make her a documentary film maker who goes into war zones and the like and then show that she can handle herself without Superman coming to save her.
I also think Diana needs to be a little bit more butch than she is now. Give her a hair cut, replace the corset with actual body armor (no boob socks), make her taller and have larger muscles. Because feminism has changed and with comic books filled with overly sexualized women the creators could stand to fall back from this by starting with Wonder Woman. Also by paring her with Superman the creators are kind of saying that the only way a woman can be happy is by being with a man who is as powerful or even more powerful than she is. Plus it makes Wonder Woman look like she is part of Superman's story rather than being the star of her own.
