We are seeing these two characters learn about one another and begin to understand their place in the relationship, as well as how to work together in conflict. Superman expresses concern for Wonder Woman’s injuries, but is reminded that it’s unwarranted. She’s a strong and independent woman and doesn’t wish to be worried over if it’s not necessary. On the other hand, she does consent to Superman defending her honor in the face of some VERY rude insults offered up by Apollo.
So far, two issues has brought us two major villains in Superman’s gallery. Doomsday appeared at the end of the first issue and Zod at the end of the second. Fearful that he may not be able to defeat Doomsday, Superman talks to Wonder Woman and expresses his concerns. With both of these baddies bouncing around, it could prove to be too much for either of them to handle alone.
3) The art is powerful
Daniel gives us facial expressions befitting of the dialogue and his positioning of the characters within the frames really adds dimension to what’s taking place. His artistic range is on full display as he has gone from penciling a meniacal rage monster to drawing a scene that’s touching and sweet.
4) More personalities than a schizophrenic Quintesson
Soule and Daniel have done their research on the wide array of personalities needed to tell their story and every one of them has a role to play. Each character brings a dish to pass to the buffet of plotlines being served. They aren’t gratuitous cameo’s or easter eggs to be found. These players are part of the plot; in your face and here to stay.
5) Team Chemistry
Soule and Daniel are shaping up to be one of the best writer/artist teams in the industry. Their partnership is young but they really have a chemistry that’s befitting of a book such as this. They have a clear vision for the kind of story they want to tell and they’re delivering it. Soule and Daniel are showing us what happens when ‘Planning’ meets ‘Execution’. And as far as creative teams go, just as Superman and Wonder Woman do, they have an excellent supporting cast that creates a perfect storm.
BONUS: MORE WONDER WOMAN
If you haven’t picked this book up, hoping to avoid reading a ‘kissing book’, then you’re missing out on a great TEAM-UP book. The action, adventure and feels are worthy of the price of admission.
