Man of Steel is the biggest non Batman superhero hit movie they’ve had in … I don’t know how many years. And the movie did really well in the demographics drawing in a demographic of 44% women. Compare that to Ironman 3 whose opening weekend had an audience that was 31% female audience.
Most people attribute much of that bump to Amy Adams playing Lois Lane. If you’ve seen the movie you know that it keeps to the canon as far as their relationship since before the mishegas started in the new 52. The kiss the two shared was shown almost a year ago at SDCC so I’m not spoiling anything.
So in the brilliant marketing synergy that is DC Comics, today they announced a new Superman book. Oh wait, make that Superman/Wonder Woman. Hitting in October and exploring the “budding relationship” according to IGN.
Wonder Woman, the most iconic female superhero in comics, finally has a second book for the first time in 61 years and it’s second billing to her boyfriend and in a book where she’s making out with him on the cover.
I said it when the first announced this relationship and I’ll say it again - they are boiling down this character to a romantic interest for a dude. Why can’t she have her own relationship in her own book?
My head and my desk are unfortunately today in a relationship as painful as the one below.

"I watched season four. I guess I already knew this, but apparently, I’m a genius … I think I feel pretty comfortable in expressing that [season four] wasn’t my cup of tea … it’s not somebody doing what they do … it’s very much like an impression. An unflattering one. It’s 13 episodes of people doing ‘DURRRPY DURPY DUR I’m Dan Harmon DUUUR.’ …
It’s like flipping through Instagrams watching your girlfriend just blow everyone."

They were down to six designers from the original sixteen. Steve’s positive that if he keeps his nose the sewing machine, and his ass out of catfights, he’ll win the whole shebang.
The problem is Tony keeps dragging him into his petty squabbles with Janet and Jessica Drew (not to be confused with her model, Jessica Jones).
Steve wagers that Tony thinks he’ll side with him; therefore, allowing him to win the argument. In truth, Steve does. not. care. He’s not here to fight. He’s here to win $100,000 and launch his artistic career. If only Tony would try playing bosom buddies with Clint.
Alas, Tony hates Clint. Everyone hates Clint. He and his purple, chiffon dresses need to go home (and stop winning challenges).
My real life’s been nuts this week. I started another Steve/Tony Fest fic for tardiscrash but it went from Steve and Tony having an awkward date to Steve deciding he and Bernie need to get married forever and ever and have babies. So, yeah. Scrapped that one. The rest of this will be up in a day or two.
