And While I'm At It...
It seems as though I haven't done much else but think about the state of my comics lately. While I have enjoyed some of the new stories, I'm beginning to get a wee bit tired of the latest incarnation of the DC Universe. And while I guess some of the writers have enjoyed their little fling at writing what is basically Fan Fiction, surely some of them are longing for the warm sweet blanket of continuity as much as I am. And if I am reading it correctly, I am not alone in this.
I want to talk about Superman and Wonder Woman. Both of them are very nice characters, that have withstood the test of time. Oh, sometimes, Superman gets a little dull, but at least Lois is there to spice things up. Oops, no more Lois. And I love Wonder Woman, although for some reason a lot of writers just have a heck of a time trying to get at the root of her character, with the exceptions of Gail Simone and Greg Rucka. But at least she had Steve Trevor. I love Steve Trevor. Oops. He's been dumped too, so that Clark and Diana can smooch up a storm in the moonlight.
I don't buy it. For one thing, it is a complete 180 degrees from how she is being presented in her very own book. Of course her very own book is also 180 degrees away from how she USED to be presented, what with being the daughter of Zeus and all of that, but as an Elseworlds, I'm enjoying the heck out of it. And I rather like Clark as being written by Morrison. But Clark and Diana making goo goo eyes at each other, as Batman plays voyeur on the Satellite?
Even Booster Gold knows that this is forbidden love! There was that tiny appearance, and mention of Rip Hunter back when they brought the JLI to a summary end, that is giving me a small amount of hope, that somewhere, out there, someone knows that this whole thing is an alternate Universe and that eventually...it will all go back to normal.
I would assume that we are going to have to wait until Geoff Johns is finished with his latest epic disaster in the Green Lantern books, and also so that Scott Snyder can finish up his whole Joker and Death in the Family storyline. Then...then maybe they'll be done, and sanity will assert itself again.
But seriously, if DC wants to hook up a beautiful Princess with an iconic figure who can do just about anything, why not go with THIS!
