Hicks: Superman dating Wonder Woman – The Mercury News
There's probably no couple in superhero comics more iconic than Superman and Lois Lane. In fact, seeing the two apart at any time may feel odd to some. Whether it be in comics, Zach Snyder's Justice League movie, or the current CW Superman and Lois series , the two always seemed destined to be each other's romantic endgame. However, there have been occasions where the two have dated other people, and each of their dating resumes are impressive.
While the recent "Superman Reborn" storyline merged the pre-Flashpoint Superman timeline with the New 52 version in such a way that most fan-favorite stories from both eras will remain intact, there is at least one major exception to that rule: the Man of Steel's romance with Wonder Woman is no longer canon. That's according to a tweet from Dan Jurgens , writer of Action Comics and the man who most clearly laid out some of the big story elements that do still count in the Rebirth era during the two part "The New World" mini-arc. The pair started up a relationship at the end of the first year of The New 52 era, and it lasted until the death of the New 52 Superman. The romance was controversial among fans of both characters; both Superman and Wonder Woman have long-term love interests who readers felt were being pushed aside for the story, and there were other reasons as well.

What makes obscure comics so interesting and vital is discovering those books that most don't know were ever printed, or that top tier creators worked on "that book" or on "that character. For anyone who was reading DC comics in , a change was known to be coming.
