I'm incredibly curious as to whether DC knew just how explosive the initial reveal of Superman and Wonder Woman sharing a kiss would be or whether they're simply riding the media storm that has since ensued. Either way, this is some much needed buzz and it looks as if this development between Supes and Wonder Woman will be marketed as aggressively as possible. Still, this is actually kind of funny on DC's part and I'd die of laughter if this actually makes it into the regular Justice League comic book series.

UPDATE: And thanks to USA Today, there's now confirmation that this kiss does indeed actually happen in the pages of the comic book and isn't simply cover bait.

UMMM OK

Wonder Woman speaks kryptonian
Asterisk - 8/27/2012, 6:51 AM
...huh?
StrangerX - 8/27/2012, 6:53 AM
I don't understand why she would want someone that speaks Kyrptonian if she doesn't know the language.
jazzman - 8/27/2012, 6:56 AM
@StrangerX

Kyrptonian is the language of love lol
Asterisk - 8/27/2012, 7:02 AM
This is just...what?
SCURVYDOG619 - 8/27/2012, 7:05 AM
I literally facepalmed reading this....

Be funny if they revealed Oracle was a match.com administrator,though...lol

I'd expect something like this to happen in the "Bwa-Ha-Ha" days of Justice League International,not the nu52,though....
MarkV - 8/27/2012, 7:10 AM
really, brah?
CPBuff22 - 8/27/2012, 7:10 AM
So is DC saying that all their demographic (comic book readers) are lonely shut-ins that need dating sites?
Fogs - 8/27/2012, 7:23 AM
this was really stupid. sorry.
rbfn04 - 8/27/2012, 7:25 AM
[frick] YOU, DCnU!
TheBurnSays - 8/27/2012, 7:26 AM
They are made for each other. Weel, they are looking for each other. No chance for us!
MidNightWind - 8/27/2012, 7:34 AM
You know what's weird, I actually used Susan eisenherg and Tim daly's voice when I was reading wonder woman and superman's profile.
GUNSMITH - 8/27/2012, 7:35 AM
WONDERWOMAN I'M AVAILABLE
Asterisk - 8/27/2012, 7:41 AM
Like I've said (and LINKARA said it too) Batman is a much better match for Diana.

MidNightWind should consider working for DC animation if that is truly the case.
toco89 - 8/27/2012, 7:51 AM
The New 52. I've come to expect changes that aren't necessary and forget things that warrant change.
ekrolo2 - 8/27/2012, 7:55 AM
WW and Supes.... yyyeeeaahhhh nnnnnnnooooo.... wheres Batman?
Danbojohnj - 8/27/2012, 8:01 AM
Thats why I read Judge Dredd comics,none of this kissy bollocks just spades of Dredd dishing out fascist ultra violence.
SuperFly - 8/27/2012, 8:20 AM
I admit I laughed when I saw superman's user name.
GoILL - 8/27/2012, 8:23 AM
I don't know what to say about this.
GoILL - 8/27/2012, 8:24 AM
@MrEko lol, that's some funny shit man.
Geeksiah - 8/27/2012, 8:26 AM
Here's what DC is doing.

This is great promotion to non-comic reading fan.
Again I say to you.
DC wants fans outside of comic reading fans. They want to humanize their characters. This is silly.. but if it works, more power to them.

YellowSunsRule38's favorite hot spot: the sun

Ha!
JohnTom88 - 8/27/2012, 8:42 AM
Batman will instead go to Manjam.com
Super12 - 8/27/2012, 8:43 AM
I like it. I'm hopin we see some drama here with Lois and Batman pining for their respective now stolen soulmates. I love the Batman/wonder woman angle they did in JL Animated Series
eleven59 - 8/27/2012, 8:45 AM
well at least she doesn't require a minimum income of $100,000 US like most on match do.... so i've heard....

I "wonder" how many guys will actually email her lol
Jolt17 - 8/27/2012, 8:48 AM
That kissing page is truly beautiful, in all honesty. It shows how great Jim Lee is.
Newbus - 8/27/2012, 8:51 AM
Desperate times calls for desperate measures.

Ummm...you think the people on Match.com are going to pay any attention to this or take it seriously at all? How does putting comic character profiles in Match.com humanize them? They are still comic book characters. If they would have put up profiles with images of a real guy and gal as Clark and Diana, then I would go along with they are trying to humanize them...but they didn't. The only ones who will pay any attention are the comic book fan members on match. Everyone else will roll their eyes or not pay any attention to it.

"Maybe you can teach me the secrets of the Y chromosome?"


HAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA

BlackWarrior - 8/27/2012, 9:10 AM
Did they really have to make it so they would be 100 percent compatible?
Tomontherun99 - 8/27/2012, 9:18 AM
It's just clever viral marketing, like how Millar advertised Kick-Ass using a real MySpace page. If it works and attracts non-comic readers then that's a plus for the industry and who are we to whine and cry?
Facade - 8/27/2012, 9:20 AM
Really?! Who's in charge of marketing @DC, anyway?! This is really sad.
JDUKE25 - 8/27/2012, 9:44 AM
I'd date her.
NBAfanaddict - 8/27/2012, 9:51 AM
Soooo, how does miss Lois Lane feel about this......development......

And i wouldn't be worried about the Bat. He's probably sending them a congratulation present right now. A small gift. Possibly a small GREEN gift :D
johnblake - 8/27/2012, 10:06 AM
haha id actually be compatable with wonderwoman. but i doubt shed like someone with out a super pelvic thrust XD
Optimus83 - 8/27/2012, 10:17 AM
¡¡¡Good Publicity for Match.com!!!
FireKnightRises - 8/27/2012, 10:21 AM
HOT Couple, DC should released hentai/porn comic, it will sold millions
CherryBomb - 8/27/2012, 10:28 AM
