I’m not entirely sure why they keep calling this book Superman/Wonder Woman when Wonder Woman is such a non-factor every month. Currently, she’s a background player in the big, Superman-centric “Doomed” storyline and in this five page preview of Superman/Wonder Woman #11 from 13th Dimension, she doesn’t even appear. Let’s take a look:
Non and Mongul get a few pages, Superman and the Martian Manhunter are fixing to rescue some folks, and Wonder Woman is nowhere. Now, the book has fifteen more pages so I assume she’ll show up at some point, but the lack of Wonder Woman doing anything at all significant in this series is getting really tiresome.
We’ve also got some creator shake-ups this month. The book was originally solicited with Paulo Siqueira drawing it, but it looks like Thony Silas will be doing so instead. And the main cover is by Ed Benes instead of Tony S. Daniel, though Daniel did the selfie variant cover that I included above because I really like it. With Daniel moving to a new series, as far as I know DC still hasn’t revealed who will be the book’s primary artist moving forward, though perhaps the November solicits will give us some clues.
So yeah, “Doomed” continues on. Superman’s not infected now and is going to save his pals, while Wonder Woman is doing who knows what. You’ll have to pick up Superman/Wonder Woman #11 in stores or online tomorrow to find out if she gets anything to do this month.

I’m sure Diana will show up at some point, use her sword, say how much she suppprts Superman and then we can all keep pretending that this is “feminism” even though her entire existence now revolves around if she likes Superman, how she feels about Superman and how she can help Superman.
And the people who keep falling for this will tell us to be quiet bc “see she has a sword and that is totally feminism!”
I have never hated anything more in comics than I hate this relationship.
You know what, the fans deserve this. I genuinely believe Wonder Woman has the shittiest fans in the world. They applaud Soule as he assassinates the character they love. Who knows what they love about Wonder Woman that Soule’s given them, everything I think is cool about Wonder Woman has been replaced by the polar opposite. I think DC wants to terminate Wonder Woman’s connection to feminism because I think they see feminists as a pestilent sub-race of irredeemably whiny women that bring about a ton of negativity.
I just read the full issue and Wonder Woman is barely in it. It’s just so bad, like they aren’t even trying to include her in the book. Martian Manhunter is in it more than Wonder Woman is. It’s very frustrating.
Personally im just biding my time until the Sensation Comics comes out!
Byw the way Tim, I read your book over the weekend, fascinating stuff. Well done!
Thanks, Karl! I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
