I’ve already gone on about how I think Wonder Woman and Superman hooking up is just stupid all around, but this is a Wonder Woman blog so I suppose I should keep on top of things.
First off, USA Today has the first official in-comic picture of the duo kissing, along with an article you’re welcome to read if you like getting upset about things. Here it is:
Also, match.com now has profiles for Superman and Wonder Woman. I don’t even know where to start with this. Here’s a peek at Wonder Woman’s:
You can see the whole profile here… it’s quite extensive. Some interesting points:
- “I’m a princess searching for her prince.”
- Under For Fun: “Romance novels about vampires.”
- Her profile name: Glamazon41
Now, I know that this is just meant to be cute, so I’m not going to tear it up or anything. It’s just a dopey little thing.
However, this is all SUCH a publicity stunt. They’ve gone from Entertainment Weekly to USA Today and now a sweet match.com tie-in. They just want press, and thus maybe some more sales… it hardly feels like they’re fixing to tell a good, organic story here. They just like to get in the news every few months and sell some more books. I know it’s a business and all, but actual stories will get you a lot further than this cycle of hype. It’s going to have diminishing returns.
Anyway, now we’re caught up. I might have a review of Justice League #12 Wednesday night, but maybe not. I don’t want to just keep harping on this, as that’s no fun to read!! Nobody likes a Debbie Downer.
