    Well of course. LOL!!! But given that we are talking about DC I'm willing to bet that if it were WW/Batman or WW/Steve the fanboys would be squeeing in delight.

    Then it was so iconic that they had Erica Durance repeat it for TV Guide during Smallville's last season. While it may work for anyone, it's traditionally associated with Lois. If fans of hers and her relationship with Superman find its being co-opted difficult to swallow, I think that's understandable.
    I understand it. Everything is either stolen from Lois or is a dig at Lois. That would be paranoia.

A little more than irritating though when you use it to try and place yourself on some sort of platform above me as a person. That's crap.

    An extra funny thing is, in the case of this image, if anyone is more the sexual object its Superman. Shirtless for no reason. Not only is Diana fully clothed, she's wearing MORE than usual, lol. Not offended for him either, not in the slightest, but ironic all the same.
    Yeah this.

    Superman in shirtless in the background, looking at WW with a face "look what I banged" with a male pose meaning power. WW is with a pornstar face, with his cape, fragile. looking like a prize for stud supes.
    I see it just the opposite. Like WW is satisfied with who she just did . And Superman hanging there in the background without his shield (honor) and shirt.

However, seeing these other options for the variant confirms my suspicion that stealing Lois Lane imagery was on the minds of those working on this project.



    It's just Lois Lane's workplace now. No one else's. It symbolizes Lois very strongly. Even if we took it as just symbolic of Metropolis, it doesn't explain the total illogicality of placing a romantic scene with WW and Superman there. This cover design more than all the others affirmed to me that recycling from Clark/Lois and pissing on Lois was on the agenda. The only other explanation is complete ignorance and stupidity on the part of the artist considering Superman and Wonder Woman at the DP makes no sense. None.



    The fortress makes more sense, as it's a place that Superman has a reason to be at and to share with those he chooses to share it with. The Daily Planet is not such a place.



    Yeah, I don't know. I think it would have been better to do something innovative and creative with the power couple considering their bold and new quality was supposed to be their biggest selling point.
    With the Daily Planet thing, I think you're thinking too hard. Most people, who don't follow Superman monthly, associate Daily Planet with Metropolis and I believe Guillem March shorthanded the DP as a visual cue for Metropolis. In all honestly, I'm willing to believe March hasn't kept up on all the latest Superman happenings-so for all he knows, Clark Kent is still working for the Daily Planet. Most artists really don't have time to read comics-and if if they do, it's usually Saga or something non-super heroic. Also, based on the way the sketches were presented and drawn, I'm pretty sure March drew #2 and #4 as his "bad" ideas-in hopes they'd be so bad that the editor would pick #1, #3, or #5. March kept going to the same concept in #3 and #5 especially. I do think, you're right on some level, that March is having fun with the Superman/Lois crowd-nothing as mean-spirited though.

The derivative nature of these covers and the poor technical execution of the final product reflect very poorly on the artist and any one else involved in this cover's development.
    Well, I am a fan of SMWW. So I enjoy all images of them especially portrayed romantically or intimately. And I still hope in the next chapter of their book, there would be a romantic scene between them.

    Its vastly overthinking it. Fact is its not so much about the Daily Planet as a workplace as it is about symbolizing Metropolis as a whole. The Daily Planet globe is the most iconic indicator of Metropolis. Thus it being present in a backdrop of Superman and Wonder Woman in Metropolis. It had nothing to do with with Lois. Its not like the cover is Diana inside the Planet offices, at Lois's seat with "Diana Prince" hastily scribbled over Lois's desk nameplate.

    It's ironic how most of the detractors of the cover wouldn't find anything controversial if Lois Lane was displayed in the same pose. In fact, one of the main complaint I keep hearing is the idea that getting wrapped in Superman's cape is supposedly a 'Clois thing'. Go figure.
    No I just said the female in the alternate cover looked like Lois. I did not say anything bad about them. You just ASSumed. While the main cover is not good due to the legs mostly, some of the alternates are pretty good.
