the Amazonian Princess and finds out what makes her tick. However, it is Lois’ final question concerning Diana’s feelings towards Superman that really stands out here. With so many past meetings between Superman and Wonder Woman adding to Lois’ insecurity, it takes an unlikely pool hall chat to clearly define their respective feelings towards Superman.
While Lois is envious of Diana’s Wonder-Woman-ness, she does have one significant edge – being Superman’s wife! The most recent on-screen Lois, Amy Adams, has said in a recent interview that she would rather be teammates with Diana than love rivals. IF the movie really does go with a love triangle between Clark, Lois and Diana, there is plenty of reference material for Snyder to look at, but nothing that’s more controversial than this tale.
It starts with Diana showing up unannounced in the Kents’ matrimonial home (much to Lois’ cha- grin), and ends with Superman and Wonder Woman being exiled to Valhalla for a millennium! Stranded with a beautiful Amazonian Princess with no wife in sight, Kal-El’s matrimonial bonds are tested by something even stronger than even kryptonite.
Personally, I suspect that the LoisDiana “choice” will probably surface at some point in the upcoming movie, and Superman’s resolve will be similarly tested as well. FOR the sentimental ones out there, a “happy” ending would involve Clark, Lois and Diana all being on good terms. This issue offers the closest we’ve gotten to that, as the Kents attend a charity show featuring Diana. The action starts when Clark is abducted by a harlot (Khyrana the Accursed) who yearns for his power. This leads to both Lois and Diana working together to save Clark (in his Superman persona). As expected, our heroes emerge triumphant (no surprise considering it’s just a bit-part villain), but it’s the aftermath that is an eye-opener here
Exhausted by their magical battle with Khyrana, both Superman and Wonder Woman return to the Kent’s apartment and dose off on the couch, with Lois’ “It’s a good thing I’m a trusting woman” remark putting all
speculation to rest. BEFORE Injustice: Gods Among Us, where Wonder Woman thrashes Batman, there was this one-shot tale, which not only has Diana overpowering Bruce, but also putting a permanent dent in the Dark Knight’s machismo … by stepping on his head.
The heroes cross swords over a young girl named Danielle, who swears allegiance to Wonder Woman but is a murderer in Batman’s eyes. When Diana refuses to let Batman take her into custody, the inevitable confrontation happens – leading to the latter’s most humiliating defeat. IN a fight between Superman and Wonder Woman, my money would be on the latter, as Kal-El is a boy scout by nature and has always held back his true might, while Diana is a natural warrior who has no qualms about killing.
In the Sacrifice story arc, however, Superman is mind-controlled by Maxwell Lord, and ordered to kill Wonder Woman. Despite the “no holds barred” scenario, Wonder Woman still manages to fend off Superman, and even has an oppor- tunity to kill him off. In the end, she succeeds in freeing Superman from Lord’s influence, by breaking the bad guy’s neck!
While the movie probably would not go into such detail ( Why not? Look what Snyder’s Supes did to Zod. – Ed.), a few fight moves that Snyder can lift from here include Diana’s use of her lasso to slice Superman’s throat, and giving him a concussion with her bracelets! POST- crisis On Infinite Earths, Wonder Woman is re-introduced to the DC Universe during a battle with Darkseid’s Parademons and Warhounds. Her explosive debut, where she picks up a Warhound with one hand and smashes it to smithereens, would definitely be worth immortalising on screen! IN the epilogue of this story, Clark and Diana meet Bruce in a superhero-themed café to inform him that they are expecting a child and want Batman to be the child’s godfather and mentor! While this ending effectively eliminates Lois from Superman’s life, it is a logical move in terms of syncing with presentday storylines, and bridging the immortality-mortality differences.
