So Tony Daniel isn’t drawing fauxmance #4?
This is what I want to see. Show the reason why the fauxmance will never work. Diana and Clark although heroes and powerful have different moral codes. Diana will kill if necessary. Clark will not.
The PR machine is releasing another panel where the fauxmance is making out ‘in front of the world’. Really? It doesn’t bother Clark at all that some people fear him right now. That Diana told the entire Justice League their secret. Something he was adamant about. He did not want anyone to know. But he’s making out with someone who has just broken a trust and gone against his adamant wishes — so she can give him a “Christmas present.”
Is DCE trying to get as much snogging in between these two as possible because it’s going to stop in an issue or two? It appears so.
This very bad idea doesn’t make either of these characters look like heroes.
Good luck with that, DCE.
So many factual inaccuracies that it just beggars belief.
Iron age Superman - the faux-Superman-boy, the one who married Lois killed - murdered, summary execution without due process, THREE DE-POWERED Kryptonians.
The Original Superman, didn’t take lives - at least not deliberately, people often did die in the pre-Comic-code books however, and Superman noted often how they deserved their fate.
Later in the elseworld / Imaginary Story, Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow Superman does kill. ( and marries Lois )
Old DCU did show Diana killing, most notably Max Lord, but the circumstances were absolutely different to the cold bloodied murder faux-Superman-boy of the Iron age acted out above. It was the ONLY way Diana could stop Max Lord killing Batman ( through Superman )
As yet in the New 52 we’ve yet to see Diana kill - Ares doesn’t count as he’s not human, and isn’t even dead - dead, probably, it’s possible to infer that Diana has killed based on ambiguous panels in Justice League, but as yet nothing damning and absolute like murdering Iron Age faux-Superman-boy who married Lois Lane showed.
Furthermore we can’t conclude in the New 52, especially given Superman Man of Steel Movie - in which in very similar circumstances to Diana killing Max Lord, Superman acted in like manner! That New 52 Superman in extraordinary circumstances wouldn’t be forced to kill.
In the end the reason why Superman doesn’t use Lethal force because he doesn’t have to, his incredible power set means he finds another way, although that is a conceit the writer creates by imagining that, as both Alan Moore and David Goyer showed it’s easy to write circumstances where that’s not true.
I’ll end by saying that I very much doubt if push came to shove that the daughter of US General would baulk at using lethal force to save lives.
Q:I am appalled the hate clois fans have towards sm/ww. The smashing of the expensive kiss statue is not anything to be cheered. It insults anyone who has to work their asses off to earn money, to make ends meet and the artist. This is a very hard time of year for many families. That someone could be so self entitled she'd rather destroy than rise above her hate or think of ways to help the needy says fandom has stooped to new lows. She could have sold it for a good cause even.
Owning something, whether it was bought and paid for with your own money or as a gift or gratuity does give someone the right to do with that object as they see fit.
Superman and Wonder Woman were created at a time when a World War pitched ideologies against one another, they were framed by their creators as embodiments of democratic ideas - such as free speech, against the excesses of for example Kristallnacht.
So I support the video/image creators liberty to do as she pleases - and also those fans of her work to reblog their support of it.
But I do believe it to be a hateful action, both in conception and execution, and anyone approving of this is endorsing that hate.
Simply put you don’t say I love you by dropping a concrete block on something - do you?
Destroying anything for no reason in my mind is just stupid and selfish, we might think more of the disadvantaged at times of crisis like the disaster in the Philippines, or a times like Christmas, but the poor are always with us.
When we choose to do something wasteful the emotional intent of that action is everything, on the one hand we could pour expensive perfume on the feet of someone we admire to demonstrate our love and affection.
On the other we could just smash the bottle on the ground in anger and hate because we don’t like the way it smells.
Smashing things, burning things brings me back to the 30’s and the genesis of Superman and then Wonder Woman.
What we choose to do - what we choose to applaud sends a strong message about who we are.
For this reason I’m opposed to wanton waste, destruction and vandalism of anything.
Seeing this pointless display reminds me how little changes.
Metallo was always one of my favorite Superman Villains largely due to his appearance in Superman #316 which was part of the first run of Superman I ever collected. This is the bronze-age Metallo Roger Corben that debuted in Superman #310. Superman #214 shows the original John Corben and then we have the revamped Metallo in Bryne’s Superman #1.
Some great Metallo covers:
I really have a lot of time for
iron man Metalo with one l, from World’s Finest Comics #6 (Summer 1942)
As an enraged Lois Lane fan I have to say how misogynistic it is of the artist to steal the idea of a hero giving the heroine his cape in this picture. This clearly belongs to Lois and Clark, as it has never happened before in annals of human history that a hero like Superman who wears a cape has given it to or allowed his love interest to wear it.
Henceforth and forthwith no one except Lois should ever be seen in the hero’s cape as this idea, like kissing belongs to Clois.

Q:Your Lana Lang is so different compared to her other incarnations. At least to me, she seems like an almost entirely new character. How did you "find" your Lana? What influenced your vision for her in the New 52?
I started with the idea that anyone who grew up with Clark, found out his secret, and kept that secret for years and years must be a very special person. And it occurred to me that Lana might have had as much an influence on Clark as he did on her — meaning they’re both crusaders. And the character started to come together from there.
I also knew I wanted to give her a job, something practical and challenging and cinematic. And in one of our conversations, Aaron Kuder, the amazing artist of the book, mentioned that he’d worked as an electrician. So that inspired things.
Lana’s been a blast to write — hope you’re enjoying her!
