    Heh, the Yeses were winning by 10 votes earlier, now losing to the Nos by 6. A 16 vote swing in less than 24 hours? Methinks this is rigged.

    I'm still a fan of the pairing; in concept if not execution. The whole point of this, and everything, is drama. Superman and Wonder Woman are together for a reason (we'll have to wait and see how good that reason is), and has been and will be used to tell a story. We already know, from JLI, that the Superman/Wonder Woman will be disastrous for the DCU and this will likely unfold in Trinity War.

    On the other end of things, Clark and Diana are young, and not yet tied to anyone else, so there's nothing wrong with them having a young romance together. We all know that Clark will end up with Lois, and that Diana will end up with Steve, but with this being the rebooted New 52, there's no reason to jump to that end.

    Lois was designed for Clark, and Steve was designed for Diana, but I don't think it hurts their inevitable relationships that these two Supers were once together, but ultimately fell in love to a normal Woman and Man.

    Probably the same way other folks are going to react when we find out that a Demi-god, Amazon Princess, doesn't make Superman as happy as a Metropolis Newspaper Reporter with no powers.

    I'm sure there were others who though the same thing when a similar swing went the other way early on

    Pity I didnt put on an option to see how folks voted. Then we could have examined how many new members voted yes or no.

    The next kiss to make me pick up Superman comics would have to be Batman kissing Superman. Seriously DC will have to work their butts off to generate hype to equal "the kiss that was heard aorund the world". lol.

    That would have been very interesting. But from old threads here we kind of know which of the posters support (before the poll) or at least don't mind the direction. It's not rocket science, is it?

    The fact that its considered "rallying the troops". That's what's so insane about it. I mean holy freaking crap I get enjoying fictional romance but this is obsessive. I may like this storyline but I don't consider myself part of any internet "team". I thought this kind of crap was reserved for lonely 40+ year old Twilight fans. Its a dark day to realize this goes on in superhero comics as well.
    This.

    I'm not crazy about Superman and Wonder Woman bumping uglies but it's just a comic book. I think it could potentially interesting, it just bothers me that the Wonder Woman Geoff Johns is writing is not the same character from Azz's fantastic book. I want to read about THAT Wonder Woman, not whatever Johns wants. Then again his Superman isn't really the same one I'm reading in Morrison and Lobdell's respective books, so I guess Johns will just write whatever he feels like.

    The fact that some people are taking this so seriously is scary though. Just relax, they're fictional characters.

    And suddenly, CBR ceased to exist.

    But seriously, you might as well say "The fact that some people are taking this so seriously is scary though. Just relax, they're guys running around with a leather ball."

    I voted "no."

    It's not my favorite pairing, but it is a pairing I like. I just think it's been done poorly (thus far?) such that it feels written for a quick marketing gimmick (eg, "drama" in the upcoming Trinity War).

    "You're strong."

    "I know."

    "You're my girlfriend."

    "tee hee, it works."

    Is not what I would call heartfelt romance. ;)
