Superman/Wonder Woman #6 Preview OR Teasing Some New Armour

Superman/Wonder Woman #6 comes out next Wednesday, and Newsarama has a preview of the book.  Now, I don’t much care for this series, but what I do like is new outfits.  It’s always fun when a superhero get a special suit for fighting in a particularly treacherous situation; we see them in their regular costumes all the time, so I enjoy when they mix it up.  Hephaestus has been working on some new armour for our title duo, but the preview cuts off at the very first time I was actually curious about what was on the next page of this series:






Good work leaving me wanting more, I suppose.

So it looks like Zod and Faora are building something evil and terrible to take over the Earth, those nefarious buggers.  And Wonder Woman and Superman talk about their relationship and how much Superman just wants to protect her, which is super not interesting.  Hephaestus looks like Hellboy on the last panel of that fourth page, though.  That’s pretty fun.

And new outfits!  I’m curious to see their fancy, Hephaestean armour.  Really, that’s all I care about at this point.

Also, following up on some of my past criticism of this series, every page of this preview features multiple panels and several lines of dialogue, which is a very nice change of pace.  I’ve been unimpressed with the book’s, shall we say, Spartan approach to storytelling, so I’m glad to see some more effective use of page space.

Superman/Wonder Woman #6 is out Wednesday, March 12 online and in comic shops everywhere.

  1. The dialogue between them is just the worst. All that questioning and that was the resolution she came with?! The book is better when it focuses on the fights and enemies.

  2. I can’t figure out if Soule could write a decent book if these two were just friends or if his view of both characters is as misguided as editorial.

    I know that he’s saddled with a terrible concept but I can’t figure out if he’s not also part of the problem. Either way, this relationship remains cringeworthy.

  3. Plenty of dialogue on show here – lots to read, it appears.
    Still mindless over-sentimilized romantic rubbish mind, but this looks as if it will take slightly more than five minutes to read than the previous issues.

  4. I’ve realIy enjoyed this book and can’t wait until next week to read more Superman Wonder Woman. DC’s very own UPC..

    1. @Vovo, there is nothing more dumb than that stupid “ultimate power couple” tagline. Dumb and shallow.

      Lois and Clark were DC’s power couple.

      Superman and Wonder Woman are their Ultimate Desperate Publicity Stunt. Nice try though.

  5. I don’t get it? Why write about Superman worrying about protecting Wonder Woman when she’s…well you know…FREAKING WONDER WOMAN! This relationship is supposed to be about the two strongest people in the world being together and not having to worry about garbage like this! Superman worrying about Lois is fine, but Superman worrying about WW is simply pointless retreading of the same waters. I know its Superman and that worrying about people around him is his thing, but he doesn’t worry about the Justice League members when they fight in a group. He trusts them and knows they have his back. Should be the same here.

    HEY SOULE, how about an actual team couple book where in which they fight side by side, back to back. And honestly, I still doesn’t seem like their together. The way they speak and hang out, it still seems like they are more good friends than actual lovers. I can’t believe I’m saying this…but where is the sexy kinky chemistry?! It would be funny after a fight to have Wonder Woman turn to Superman and tell him how hot he looked kicking ass, and then they just start making out in the air. It would be cheesy but still funny and realistic. Couples do that sort of thing. I know these are two very moral superheroes, but moral does not mean lack of fun.
