Move over Twilight, there’s a new power couple in town! Earlier this year, it was announced in the midst of the Superman/Wonder Woman relationship as seen in the pages of Justice League and Superman, there is going to be an ongoing series called ‘Superman/Wonder Woman’. It would feature the adventures of Superman and Wonder Woman working together for truth, justice, and the american way. Charles Soule and Tony Daniel sat down with Comic Vine to discuss the tone, content, and a little romance in between.
Regarding the tone of this series:
Charles Soule: It’s a great mix. It’s not just one thing. I would say that it’s really a mix of being really gigantic scale superhero action, which is appropriate when you have Superman and Wonder Woman playing on the same playing field. Beyond that, there are some really fantastic character moments, not just between the two of them but between their expanded casts, both respectively from their individual books. You also have the main characters in the book in a relationship with one another. So that enables us to play some deeper emotional beats that maybe not every other types would be able to access in the same way. When Superman and Wonder Woman, the icons, are together, it has sort of a spark, an electricity to it. That’s just really really fun to write. There’s something interesting on every single page, obviously with Tony’s art on the book. There’s a lot of ways we’ll try to keep the readers interested it’s a gigantic superhero punching or it is a really beautiful character moment between them.
Tony Daniel: I’d say it’s a combination of badass meets sexy meets character drama. From the artist talking, that’s what I’m envisioning in my head.
Tony Daniel’s cover of the book displays rouge galleries as well as allies from both Superman and Wonder Woman. And even though they may appear in the gatefold cover, Daniel told Comic Vine that some of them may or may not appear in the book during their run.
This series is also different from the typical Superman or Wonder Woman series of books in the new 52 which Wonder Woman doesn’t appear mainly in the Superman titles and Superman for the Wonder Woman titles.
Well obviously you have Superman and Wonder Woman together, which is not something we see often. We see the Justice League but Wonder Woman doesn’t really pop up in the Superman titles and Superman doesn’t really pop up in Wonder Woman’s book. The idea that you can see them having adventures together is one of the things that absolutely makes it unique. There just isn’t much else around like it.
