Thanks for fixing the link. \:\) Three reasons why this won't work.

1. The marriage needs to stay: While I think Superman/Diana is more of a perfect match than Lois and Clark and that they SHOULD have ended up together, I do NOT agree with chucking out their marriage like that. I garrantee you most fans will have an uproar about this (in fact, some already are in some places on the web).

2: Superman/Lois cheating on each other? NO!: Of course, the guy never actually "directly" stated the marriage is going be gotten rid of, he seems to imply (to me at least) to either it will or Superman will cheat on Lois (could be the other way around too). Which is VERY HIGHLY out of character of either Superman or Lois to do.

3. If it ain't broke, DON'T fix it!: Of course, if the marriage is written out of continuity with a relationship set up between Superman and Wonder Bra...AHEMS...excuse me, Wonder Woman, then I have mixed feelings about that. On one hand, I love the idea of a relationship between Clark and Diana. On the other, I'm outraged that the writers would even consider throwing the marriage out the window. Lois and Clark are married, let them stay married and NO relationship with Wonder Woman outside of friendship.

I think it's great the writers what to explore here, so let them explore by say...having Lois successfully have a kid. I've been wanting to see that for YEARS. Lois and Clark having a son/daughter would be a new direction that has never been explored before (Chris Kent doesn't count since he was adopted and we saw so very little of it).

But like I said before, though, if it ain't broke, DON'T fix it!

The more I hear about this rebooted DC (and it IS a reboot despite what they are saying), the more I hate it and the harder it is for me to keep an open mind. Come this fall, I ain't supporting a single DC book. I will buy a few of the first issues, but that's it, no ongoing titles to be collected. I'll be done with DC until they get their heads skrewed on stright. And from what I hear, I'm not alone on this one.

Of course, I could be going half cocked and totally misunderstanding what that guy said. After all, he didn't actually say, "Yeah, the marriage is gonna go." In any case, he "seemed" to imply it, at least to me. I really hope I'm wrong.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
