    Comic Legends: Superman & Wonder Woman Nearly Had a One-Night Stand?
    12.02.2016 by Brian Cronin


    Welcome to Comic Book Legends Revealed! This is the six hundred and fourth week where we examine comic book legends and whether they are true or false. This week, it’s all Superman-related legends!

    (excerpt)

    COMIC LEGEND: There was almost a one-shot comic where Superman and Wonder Woman had a one-night stand.
    STATUS: True

    ...It wasn’t even ALLUDED to in the comics until the late 1960s, when Lois Lane first started to think, “Hey, maybe Superman and Wonder Woman are meant for each other?”

    It was then teased in a couple of other comics, including a “DC Comics Presents” issue where Eros made them fall in love with each other.

    However, by far the most prominent pairing of the two (before the New 52) was soon after the characters were both rebooted following Crisis, when they met for the “first” time in “Action Comics” #600 and, well, this happened (courtesy of John Byrne and George Perez)…

    It then became a team-up where they fought against Darkseid because, hey, it’s comics, you have to have a fight scene!

    Anyhow, while that was the take that John Byrne came up with, George Perez had other ideas. In 1990, when he was still writing the “Wonder Woman” comic book series, he discussed the idea in the Amateur Press Association fanzine “TitanTalk”. Here is Perez…

    Also on my Wonder Woman agenda is a one-shot prestige format book tentatively titled “Rendezvous”, and it is a romance story with Diana and Superman to be edited by Karen. It will, at last, really deal with the physical relationship between these two popular characters. In other words, they do it. Due to the nature of the story, I will probably be using the Gods as a means of allowing the reader his or her option to regard or disregard this tale as part of DC continuity. I have no intention of treating this story sensationally, but there are definitely some mature themes I’ll wish to explore.


    DRAGON*CON 2016 (02-05 Sep 2016)
    Atlanta, Georgia
    Recently, at this year’s Dragoncon, during a Wonder Woman panel, Perez restated that he had started on plans for a one-shot graphic novel along those lines, but it didn’t end up materializing. At the Dragoncon panel, Perez seemed to insinuate that it might have been because his view was that Wonder Woman was going to be a bit underwhelmed, considering that she was expecting practically a god and he noted that DC was a bit wary about making Superman look bad.

    I’m sure people would be glad to see an out-of-continuity version of that, George!
