Faster Than A Speeding Bullet?

Sure, who wouldn't want to hook up with the Man of Steel? He's Superman, after all, and that kind of name recognition doesn't just drop out of the sky like a rocket from Krypton every day. I do wonder why Supes would have a thing for Lois Lane, not that she's not a lovely person with a terrific personality. I hear she's a swell dancer too. But she's not very good at her job. Metropolis' best investigative reporter seems to have spent the last seventy-five years or so being baffled by one of the simplest disguises ever: a pair of horn-rimmed glasses. Didn't she notice that that schlub Clark Kent was really filling out that dull blue suit jacket that he seemed to wear to every assignment? Maybe that's why the son of Jor-El decided to make the big leap this month and start dating someone with more similar interests and abilities.
Yes, if you missed it, Superman was last seen canoodling with Wonder Woman on the cover of "Justice League." The folks over at DC Comics are quick to point out that this is not an alternate reality, or a Bobby Ewing pops out of the shower after Pam has dreamed an entire season of "Dallas." This is a real and true power-couple. Lois Lane? She's probably working on her resume. Print media, after all is dead. Perry White has, no doubt, gone on to run a cable news network, and Jimmy Olsen is going to have to be satisfied with working as a "frequent contributor" to The Daily Beast.
It's sad when things don't work out, but I do hope that this new romance has a chance, but with all the super and wonderful expectations, I expect the pair will have their share of problems. I wonder if this means Superman will have to give up his Fortress of Solitude. Bruce Wayne is probably laughing all the way to his Batman Cave.
