Oh, THAT pairing. Never been a big ClarkxDiana fan. Always thought it was boring given how similar they are in personality (among other things). But, different strokes for different folks. It’s not always about what we want…

I’ll give my opinion here. I love Clark and Diana as a couple. The reasons that I love their pairing is because, as their alter-ego’s of Superman and Wonder Woman, both have to: (1) deal with international diplomats and world leaders, meaning they both must be diplomatic (Ex: Superman: Peace On Earth / Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth) (2) Superman & Wonder Woman both live amongst fragile humans and both understand the importance of being careful around them (3) Both of them understand the importance of using their powers and abilities responsibly and not letting it corrupt them. For example,… Read more »

I certainly concur, I really liked the idea of the 2 of them together, and I think Kingdom Come did it for me, although I must admit, there is a missing level of comfort I get with Clark and Lois

The above image illustrates my personal problem with this pairing. The fact that Kal can openly date Wonder Woman in both his identities ruins any kind of drama, she fits into both his worlds seamlessly. If you have to hook him up with another superhero, make it one he can’t be “Clark” with, someone too alien, like Starfire or Hawkwoman (when her wings are biological). That way, Clark can’t date anyone at all, because he doesn’t want to cheat, and therefore he looks like even more of a loser because he NEVER dates, while ironically going out with a super-hot… Read more »

You see, this is why so many of us love SMWW: we don’t like the drama. We’ve seen the “Two-person love triangle” and we’re tired of the pretzel logic that has to occur for it to work. We like that in one scene SM & WW can be at a date, the next kick ass, then resume their date. We *like* the lack of manufactured drama.

I get where you are coming from, and I agree the Two-Sided Triangle can get tiresome when played incorrectly. But stories turn on drama, manufactured or otherwise. One of the biggest themes in superheroic fiction is “What are you giving up to do the right thing?” If the answer is “Oh, nothing. My life is perfect,” then what’s the point? Superman is already so powerful, there’s a reason so many of his stories resort to soap opera drama. The dramatic tension has to come from somewhere. But to each his own. 🙂

I never liked that couple. I tend to love the classics.

:::YAWN::: Been there seen that. C’mon DC you’ve moved onto bigger and better things like Lois and Clark back together again because of Rebirth. Never liked the Wonder Woman romance. I’d much rather see her with either Steve Trevor, or even Bruce Wayne.

DC has moved on to bigger and better things by going *back* to the clois relationship? That’s contradictory on its face.

Super/Wonder <3 A truly great pairing.

Clark Kent humanizes Wonder Woman. She’s a goddess and he’s a farmboy. He’s a reporter and she’s an ambassador. Diana in turn elevates Superman. She encourages him to embrace the god within him, to acknowledge that, while he loves Earth and all its inhabitants, that with his powers he can do so much for them, not just to save them but to be a symbol for them to be *better*.

For all their similarities, and there are quite a few, it’s their differences that makes the pairing interesting, satisfying and superwonderful.

I much prefer the Wonder Woman/Superman pairing. For one thing, it’s a little sad that Clark would be attracted to a woman like Lois that has traditionally treated him (as Clark) so poorly. I know I’ll get a lot of flaming for this, but I think it’s time for the Clark Kent disguise to go away. Period. It made sense as a cover identity while he was growing up and figuring out what he wanted in the world, but once he was revealed to the world as Superman, it’s just not a disguise that works anymore. In fact, that’s one… Read more »

*fuels up flamethrower* lol j/k 😉 “I know I’ll get a lot of flaming for this, but I think it’s time for the Clark Kent disguise to go away” Eh, I kind of agree with you there, in that the “disguise” isn’t necessary. The way I see it is that Clark has been “Clark Kent” before “Superman”, and so shouldn’t just throw that identity away as it is a part of him, of his background growing up, ties to his family, and so on. No, I think that Clark Kent being Superman could be an “open secret”, in that he’s… Read more »

To me this is a pairing that inherently comes from a fanfiction place so it really only rings true in certain contexts like Kingdom Come (and even there it’s a stretch because you have to not only accept Lois getting killed but also by someone elses main villain which is pretty fanficy in and of itself). Also to be blunt, I just don’t have a big desire to see everyone important in Superman’s life being super-heroes or super powered. Lois was designed to be his foremost love interest as well as a strong character in her own right and while… Read more »

I, personally, have always loved this pairing. It just makes sense. You want someone in your life that you can share everything with and with Lois there’s just so much of himself that he has to hold back. She could never understand his whole “Superman” side, she has no way to fathom what it means to be that person. Plus for the first, what, 50 years, she treated “Clark” like total $#!+ while fangirling all over Superman. To have him still fawning after her like some lovesick puppy always made him look like a loser and I never liked that.… Read more »

1. Clark ain’t that slick
2. Tf is Diana’s hair o.O
3. Clark is paying that meal…on a reporters salary???

Also wonderbat and loisxclark 4 life (just my opinion don’t get butthurt).

1. Clark has his moments sometimes.
2. Agreed. Doesn’t fit her character at all.
3. The same way the Friends or Seinfeld could afford their huge apartments in New York. Cost of living in TV land just works differently.

With you on loisxclark, but wonderbat no. Besides does Batman really need yet another thing for some batfans to puff him up completely out of proportion while still claiming he’s the most “relatable” superhero?

January 14, 2017 11:45 am

Everyone is talking about this relationship, but I’m just glad it appears to be an episode where Batman isn’t in the lead role.

Like the comics DC animated stuff always seems to suffer from varying degrees of bat-bias.

I usually been DVRing Justice League Action every week because it come on at 6:30 am in the morning so I can watch it later on Saturdays. But I don’t remember seeing this scene as part of the episode today.

January 14, 2017 6:27 pm

Awesome! Love it! Hopefully, we’ll get to see them smooch in a future episode!
