Justice League #12 banner

DC Comics announced Wednesday that longtime subjects of super power fan fiction Superman and Wonder Woman would be getting together and totally hooking up for the foreseeable future.

The cover for Justice League #12, from Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, is an image of a flying Superman embraced in an aerial make out session with Wonder Woman. The relationship, seemingly born out of a tragedy that shocks the superhero team to its core, is said by series writer and DC Entertainment executive Geoff Johns to be “the new status quo.”

Check out the full cover of Justice League #12, debuted at EW yesterday, here below.

According to EW, Jim Lee took inspiration for this cover from Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss and Alfred Eisenstaedt’s V-J Day in Times Square photograph.

Let me speak to those who dwell underneath rocks: For the longest time iconic superhero Superman, aka Clark Kent, was in a long standing, near century love affair with Lois Lane, reporter for the Daily Planet, which culminated in a marriage between the two. But alongside DC’s line-wide reboot, the relationship went the way of Stephanie Brown and was never seen or heard from again. Instead, we are now introduced to the new DC power couple of Superman + Wonder Woman (or Cliana, as I like to call it).

Naturally, fans, critics, and bloggers are having a field day with this news, and the creative team welcomes that, evidenced by what Jim Lee told EW, “Hopefully this will raise a lot of eyebrows. We welcome the watercooler chatter.” So, if it wasn’t clear prior to this comment, it should be now that this is yet another publicity stunt for the publisher. This appears to exist only to push units, not to further a storyline or done for creative purposes.

Personally, I was a fan of the Clark/Lois marriage, but I wasn’t really upset when they nixed the marriage. I always assumed that it would go back to normal, considering the fact that the Clark/Lois/Superman story is one of the greatest love stories of all time, but with this news, I’m surprisingly even less likely to get interested in what’s going on in Justice League. That’s a personal preference, obviously, but if you share that sentiment, there’s always Smallville.

Justice League #12 will be released on August 29, 2012.
