Superman Wonder Woman has so far been a big surprise to me. It has had two very solid issues so far and has kept me hooked with a nice mix of action, superhero conflict and character drama. The relationship between Wonder Woman and Superman was not something received very well but there is no doubt &
Comic Book Resources - REVIEW: Superman/Wonder Woman #3 - Wonder Woman just wants her and Superman to have a nice Christmas, but Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel put a little General Zod under the tree in Superman/Wonder Woman #3.
With a subplot about the perfect Christmas present for Superman — which comes to a slightly predictable but still heartfelt conclusion — “Superman/Wonder Woman” #3 even gets in a little extra bonus for tying into the time of year that it was published. When you look at the main cast of the book and the characters that it pulls in, “Superman/Wonder Woman” almost feels like a member of the “Justice League” family rather than an offshoot of either Superman or Wonder Woman… but without feeling the need to tie into “Forever Evil.” For those who aren’t interested in the crossover, this might be the substitute title they’ve been looking for, instead. It has a strong grasp of the DC Universe, it plays with some of the major icons, and it’s well crafted. That’s a winner in my book.

And I wanted someone who is absolutely and utterly powerful. It’s interesting because at the time, John Byrne had just taken over Superman and had announced that he was making Superman less powerful because he had become too powerful and you couldn’t write interesting stories about people that were too powerful. That started me thinking, “Well, no, actually you can, because what makes a person interesting or not interesting isn’t how powerful they are, but who they are.”
Wow. Amazing. This keeps getting better and better.
Thank you, DC, for proving to the haters that two big names can be in a complex and believable relationship without devolving into some watered down sparkling vampire drama. The story is compelling. We see action alongside budding romance. If this were a movie, I’m pretty sure every dude would be okay with watching it and they wouldn’t have to turn in their man cards.
ZOD Sorry Zod We Only Kneel Before Gorilla Grodd Superman deals with the supercharge he got from Apollo while Wonder Woman learns the meaning of Christmas. It is a Christmas story until Zod returns!…
Overall: This is still the Superman book that I prefer reading. It is also the Wonder Woman I prefer reading. Soule is writing a strong beginning to the series and this issue is great as well. The relationship dynamic keeps you in your seat but the art team is what brings it all together visually. This is the team up that Batman/Superman should be jealous of.
Superman and Wonder Woman have already been through a lot together…now we seem them both together and apart as they figure out just who they are and what is important in their relationship. It makes for a highly entertaining story, with a lot of guest stars and one very special bad guy.
I honestly like the Superman and Wonder Woman in this series even more than I do in their “main” solo titles – this is a great read and a definite add to the buy pile.
A powerful foe has escaped from the Phantom Zone. Can Superman and Wonder Woman stop this madman before he gains full power under the Earthâs yello
Is It Good?
Superman/Wonder Woman #3 was a nice step up in quality. The relationships between everyone, the dialogue, and the emotional aspects were strong and helped make the characters more real in a way. If this is where things start improving, then I’m excited to see where the title will continue on from here.
It’s time for Zod to make his debut. What is he up to, and more importantly, can Superman and Wonder Woman hope to stop him?
Soule successfully moves the overall narrative forward while also throwing plenty of variables into the mix. There’s a lot of buildup in this issue and you can definitely feel all of the factors circulating. The cliffhanger’s something we’ve all seen coming a mile away, but everything else has me incredibly anxious to witness how it’ll all play out. With Daniel on-board, we know it’ll be a good looking ride, too.
