    It seems to me like Didio/Lee/Johns arbitrarily chose to hook Diana up with Superman and didn't inform the other creators of their plans, but rather just expected them to fall in line. The thing is, none of the other creators seem interested in touching this "romance." Azz emphatically stated that he's not going to incorporate it, and Snyder and Diggle both seem to be pro Lois.

    Part of me wants to believe that maybe this is all part of an elaborate ruse to build Steve up until he's seen as worthy of Diana, but that's probably just wishful thinking on my part.

    Geoff Johns's Wondy is something of an alien. Azzarello's Wondy has been around, doing her hero thing for awhile.

    It seems she is much more comfortable around people at least. Its a shame we dont know what experiences she has had to get that way.

    But yes, Johns Wonder Woman is very reminscent of the original appearance of Starfire. Good call.

    Nah. Johns is purposely writing her that way because if he uses Azzarello's WW as a template, there would be no basis for this "romance" with Supes.

    LOL True that.

    I can just see Clark leaning in to kiss Azz's Diana and her just smiling at him and saying, "Oh, no. Sweety, no."

    I think she'd be repulsed by the site of that popped collar he's sporting. ;)

    I can imagine the Johns Wonder Woman asking Steve, on some lazy, amorous evening in the parlor, ..why that pink mouse is resting in his lap. She's something of an alien.

    Perhaps you should read JL now that it's set in the present and not 5 years ago.

    Thanks, now I have an image of Diana shaking a toaster in my head with the following text:

    Steve: "Diana, what are you doing?"
    Diana: "I saw burnt bread coming out of it!"

    Johns seems to want to play up the new world perspective of WW whilst Azz isn't interested in that. This may work in the opening arc but it comes off as completely idiotic in the present were she's been introduced to the world for 5 whole years and comes off as a moron. Azz writes her as a competent individual.

    Brian Azzarello seems to be making Wonder Woman as some kind of superhero who has lots of brothers and sisters while Geoff Johns is making her Superman's girlfriend. Maybe in order to get back at Superman, Lois Lane will date Steve Trevor and join the Justice League of America.
