PHILADELPHIA — Wonder Woman and Superman are an item, locking lips in a passionate embrace as the pair realize that there’s no one out there like them.
The couple’s kiss is the culmination of a dramatic story in “Justice League” No. 12, which marks the first full year since DC relaunched its stable of heroes with new stories, new costumes and revised origins.
DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee, who has drawn each issue of “Justice League” since its debut, called the canoodling in Wednesday’s issue not a stunt or an alternate reality smooch.
“This has been in the works for some time and we certainly wouldn’t have pulled the trigger on without there being great creative benefit to the liaison,” he said in an email. “Beyond the joy and sorrows of new love, there are potentially huge ramifications and dramatic ways this single relationship between these iconic characters will change the entire political and interpersonal landscape of the DC Universe.”
