    I only wish that Kiel had asked Jim Lee about his drawing Justice League and how far along he was.....

    Such a lot of spin in these interviews. And of course, now they are wheeling out all of Marvel's justifications for why a superhero marriage is better left undone. I guess storywriters just do not like married people as writing fodder?

    According to them it makes for less conflicted emotions right?

    So you're telling me that the mere fact of Clark & Lois not being able to have children is in no way an opportunity for conflicted emotions & isolation?

    Thank God I already made up my mind about not buying this come September.

    Yeah the more I learn about DC's reboot the less comics I plan to buy from them.

    Yeah the whole marriage thing and why they want to get rid of it. I guess when I read about Superman and Spider-man. I must have poor reading comprehension since I always thought these two would get married and have long lasting relationships. It's as though I thought it was part of their character, guess I was wrong about that.

    Seems like DC and Marvel subscribe to the Gene Simmons book of relationships. Sure live together, have some kids, have dual ownership, but never ever get married. Because how they're living now is just so different.

    Wonder it this thinking is why Luke Cage and Jessica Jones haven't gotten married? Or just some stereotype for Luke. ( Thanks for all those who answered that they are married. Like I said in later post haven't read Marvel in a while.)

    I can't help to rant. How many "superheroes" are actually married? If fans can't relate to people being in long lasting relationships that cultivate into marriage. Then fans can't relate to having powers and saving people.

    It seems only Aquaman, Barry Allen and Wally West are the only married heroes right now in this new DCU. Because I wonder if DC will keep Midnighter and Apollo married.

    You mean, who had not had their spouses killed?

    I can only think of Superman, the Flashes, Reed and Sue Richards and Apollo and Midnighter.

    I think maybe they got rid of the Clark/Lois relationship so that they could explore the Superman/Batman relationship more.

    Well, I'm sure when the Senate hearings on comic book reboots convenes they'll get the merciless grilling they deserve. Until then they'll continue give interviews in which they make a conscious effort to promote their company's product (i.e., their jobs).

    Luke Cage and Jessica Jones have been married for about 5 years now.

    Not really seeing what one has to do with the other.

    I'm glad they are doing their jobs and promoting their company, but does it have to feel like they are talking down to readers like we are all children?

    So far I have not heard anything that makes me excited about September and beyond.
