(PDF DOWNLOAD) [SupermanWonder Woman Volume 1 Power Couple] ò Charles Soule
read ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ê Charles SouleSeen better work from him before His style definitely suits this modern cinematic title with its hefty dose of splash pages large panels and BIG action And as a fan of Frank Miller s The Dark Knight Returns I liked that Superman looked a lot like he did in that book post nuke it s a nice nod I didn t love Power Couple partly for the reasons I mentioned earlier but also because for a book focused on two characters I don t think Soule really showed us anything new or insightful about them either as individuals or as a couple But as light as it is it s still a solid superhero comic and entertaining to boot And it ends really nicely with Clark and Diana dancing woah DC allowed their characters to have a little fun and smile for once SupermanWonder Woman Volume 1 Power Couple is shock a pretty good New 52 book Looks like Hawkman played a very ugly and hairy cupid in this one 35 stars Love this I have always loved Wonder Woman and Superman Well and the Hulk I had a pair of little kid Wonder Woman underwear set I might still have them packed away somewhere Anyhoo
I want of this I NEED of these two together Mel I was pretty prepared to not like this becausewant of this I NEED of these two together Mel I was pretty prepared to not like this because the whole putting Superman and Wonder Woman together for publicity They first got together over in Geoff Johns Justice League I think it was the end of the second arc and it seemed to come out of nowhere There was no tension or flirtation between the two in the previous issues of Justice League which made the coupling seem even forcedI also love the current Wonder Woman ongoing so extra
Titles With Her In Justwith her in ust that book harder to figure out timeline and continuity wiseBut this was pretty good I think a lot of it is down to it looking amazing Tony Daniel is a great clear and clean artist His storytelling is easy to fol The 52 reboot has a young Superman and Wonder Woman attempting to hide their romance from the public amidst ordeals with General Zod Doomsday The Phantom Zone and other issuesUnlike a lot of graphic novels the romance is exhibited well and doesn t go down the uvenile road OVERALL GRADE B plus to A minus This was certainly better than I d hoped It wasn t because of the story Doomsday Meh Zod Meh Nothing terribly special #I WOULDN T READ THIS FOR THE STORY AT #wouldn t read this for the story at would however read it for the relationship and the characters Here s the thing I m not exactly a fan of the concept of Superman and Wonder Woman dating I don t suppose I have a particular reason it ust doesn t appeal to me However Soule made it work and turned it into a really good relationship The key as I see it is that the relationship is built on a deep mutual respect and Soule perfectly captured that Which leads back to the characters I feel like he wrote them both very well This version of Clark isn t exactly a Boy Scout but he is a good man trying to do the best he can with his abilities And Diana is a warrior Soule lets her be strong and in command without being shrill and he lets Clark be somewhat naive without being gullible or dull It seems like both of these characters are hard to write and Soule had itAm I convinced of the relationship now Hm maybe At least the way Soule writes it And I dearly wish that he d been given the main Wonder Woman title after Azzarello left Alas You know this makes the most sense Wonder Woman and Superman feel like the perfect pair They are both strong enough to really love each other safely I can t believe it took so long to get this to happen I don t know why they brought back Zod for this Doomsday is back too I guess they need the biggest villains to fight There was plenty I rolled my eyes at here and things I liked Overall I was entertained by this story I might keep going with it 45 starsWhoa Fuck me No seriously I want Superman to fuck me He s H O T Yeah yeah I know what you re thinking But Anne he s not real Whatever Neither are the airbrushed dudes that keep popping up in my feed Not that I don t appreciate the pics ladies wink winkBut if.

Superman Villains First Doomsday Thenvillains first Doomsday then and Faora Actually there is reason given at the end but it s pretty stupid Thankfully the romance is put on hold while Superman and Wonder Woman fight back the Phantom Zone intrudersWhile I generally liked most of what s in this book a few things bothered me The main problem was keeping their relationship a secret why Well apparently if the two ever broke up there d be mass devastation as one or both would go on a rampage Hmm Superman and Wonder Woman are GODS Is it conceivable that they don t react to things the same way petty humans do Is it possible that if they ever broke up nothing would happen they would be mature enough to walk away as adults rather than throw a spat like a baby tossing its toys out of the pram Or maybe they never break up some people fall in love once and for life But we ve gotta have this secrecy subplot because of dummies projecting their own fears and shortcomings onto figures who are so far above them And because we have to know who leaked the shot of the two kissing I honestly don t care and I really didn t buy the hubbub over that pic in their world Is it really that surprising that two god like beings who re both super hot decide to bone C mon guys In Power Couple Charles Soule has created a very strong story that does sweep up the reader and carry them through to the end you do want to know what happens next but it fails in a couple of instances The Spanish Dagger (China Bayles, jumping around style of narration is unnecessarily complex We re in the present then the near past then the future then the past again then the present and so on It s not like you can t follow it but it s a very choppy way to write what is basically a straightforward story And the story itself is fairly unmemorable Superman and Wonder Woman fight another power couple Zod and Faora and win Eh It s a bit thin plotwise But I get it the book s not really about plot so much as it is about character and this is where Soule really succeeds This book isn t a Superman book with Wonder Woman as supporting character it genuinely is a SupermanWonder Woman book We learn about Superman s past and culture through Wonder Womanust like we learn about her background through Superman admittedly though for experienced DC comics readers it s all stuff you already know Soule s written a really decent Superman book and a really decent Wonder Woman book and then spliced the two together That approach permeates the story so that Superman never dominates the fighting and isn t in the spotlight doing the heroic act while Wonder Woman s in the background They both fight Doomsday They both fight Zod and Faora They both save cargo ships planes and lives And when it comes to the finale the only way they can achieve victory is through being together Besides a pants cameo from the New 52 JLA who get beaten pretty badly which underlines how useless they are I know I ve read their own title as well the story is all Superman and Wonder Woman with no one else helping them out You could look at the pairing and think of course DC would put the two together they re high profile characters who re going to be really really well known even so when the DCU movies start coming out in ust a couple years so it s worth pushing them to front and centre in as many comics as possible But actually Charles Soule had a plan for them and it s turned out to be anything but a cynical marketing ploy to shove the two together into an arbitrary title Tony Daniel s art surprised me too I remember his work on the Batman books that spun out of Grant Morrison s a few years
ago and the art was very much like Jim Lee s theand the art was very much like Jim Lee s the said about his writing the better He hasn t totally lost that look but in this book the lines are cleaner and leaner and the panelspages are dynamic He s gotten better as an artist and I don t think I ve. O find out that its two most powerful super heroes are than ust teammates But secrets have a way of escaping And the very different worlds that the world's greatest couple have inhabited are about to collideGods and monsters like threaten not ust Superman and Wonder Woman but everyone and everything they care abou. Fine story decent villains and a good setup for future stories if they re willing to focus on the action and flush the melodramaThis story brings up a lot of flaws though some that are baggage from New 52 some that are poorly handled details of Azzarello s
very isolated run in ww and some thatisolated run in WW and some that ust plain poor choices by Soule and Daniels At the root of it I feel like people aren t taking this shit seriously I mean have fun and make fun stories and all but let s not s Superman and Wonder Woman newly dating are ambushed by a monster named Doomsday and meet a strange kryptonian named ZodDoomsday is introduced in almost a cameo appearance while the threat posed by Zod is hidden at first things rapidly spiral out of control once Clark takes Zod to the Fortress of Solitude in what felt like a nice revamp of Zod s introduction into the New 52 stories Zod seems a little sane this time around not making it personal by not especially caring who Clark is as he only focuses on Earth s dominationOf course the secondary story running through every scene is Clark and Diana being together and how they relate Clark visits Diana
S New Family Onnew family on which makes for a few entertaining scenes Clark wants to maintain privacy while Diana prefers to be open about who they are which I enjoyed as a dichotomy They speak to each other with their eyes open and without sappiness they solve problems as a team and form the kind of eual partnership that seems worth aspiring to In short Charles Soule presents them as a true power couple and for the first time it seems like they re presented as iconic a duo as Superman and Batman are usually shown This combination also makes at least as much sense as the traditional ClarkLois pairingTony Daniel kills it with the art providing appealing action scenes and some of my favorite depictions of these new designs of the charactersPS This is the SupermanWonder Woman I reme I ll go on the record saying I love Clark and Lois together However this isn t the Clark we know This is New52 Clark who is of a assholeish young kid who has almost no game so he never gets this universe Lois So instead we get Clark hooking up with Wonder Woman The power couple The Gods be thumping and bumping The story basically revolves around them first dating Trying to figure out their relationship like any other couple Then the news gets out that they re dating and people are freaking out Then Zod comes to earth and wants to open up the Phantom Zone And then Doomsday is here Kind ofAnd yeah a whole lot of shit happens in 8 issues What I liked The art is reallllllly solid Everything looks great and the fights flow really well I like Clark and Diana together They a bit off beat but it works for who they are Plus they #fight ust like real people Oh and I also thought the moment Superman #just like real people Oh and I also thought the moment Superman down a God was cool The 2 on 2 fight was great What I didn t like Doomsday is getting tiring Why is he always the big bad Also the ending seemed to be missing huge chunks of the story and got a bit confusing I think the pacing in general is ust off Like it s missing moments Overall this was fun and enjoyable Similar to Batmansuperman it has a lot of fun ideas some even great but it feels uneven Maybe because they tie it to the main universe and that holds it down I d love to see a separate universe for both of them to have freedom But overall it s good stuff and I ll check out This has to be some kind of record New 52 Savage Hawkman shows up in this book and it DOESN T end up sucking what the hell is going on But I have to admit I did like this book which surprised me because I read the monthlies and gave up after 3 disappointed I didn t think that the issues collected in a trade would work as well as they did so reading this book was a pleasant surprise I guess some titles Dead Giveaway just read better in trade paperbacks than if you re reading them month by month and vice versa Superman and Wonder Woman are a secret couple for no good reason than to ha.
