Meanwhile, at ComicsAlliance...
You may have wondered, "Say, what does Caleb think about this?"
The answer: "Eh, who cares?"
While I am a man who has strong opinions about Superman and Wonder Woman, I have a really hard time getting myself interested enough to care much about the goings-on of the New 52-iverse versions of the characters, as they still just feel like Ultimate Superman and Ultimate Wonder Woman to me more than the, um, real Superman and Wonder Woman (I know I know I know they're not real shut up shut up).
But it still seemed like a good opportunity/excuse to delve into the two characters' fictional biographies, so at ComicsAlliance I have a pair of related articles: The Many Loves of Superman and The Many Loves of Wonder Woman, detailing the two superheroes' romantic histories.
Even if you don't read the full stories, do take the time to watch the Batman/Steve Trevor/Wonder Woman team-up from Batman: The Brave and The Bold, which manages to work the Golden Age version of Wonder Woman and one of her earliest foes and the 1970s conception of Steve Trevor (complete with Wonder Woman theme song!) into the world of The Brave and the Bold.
My editors also embedded a few clips from the Justice League Unlimited episode where Wonder Woman gets turned into a pig and Batman has to sing to undo the spell, which was one of the highlights of that series.
