The semi-subtle jabs at the citizenship story and Grounded were funny, but this was a great scene--definitely worthy of being the "final" scene of the two in Action Comics...for now. :)

BTW, on your creator tags--Rocafort didn't draw this issue, he left Action at around #902, probably to draw Red Hood.

. . . SEEE? This is all you needed. One conversation with Lois.

One awesome conversation.

But alas, the marriage is over.

Stupid reboot.

The Spider-Man thing was a much different situation though since we didn't know that the devil divorce was a sure thing when that issue rolled. IIRC that annual got a lot of people's hopes up that Marvel wasn't going to fuck over the marriage.

In this case we know and have known the marriage-haters have won, I'm not gonna fault a writer for stopping before that to eulogize these characters as they were (while also apologizing for the last year or so of breathtakingly stupid Superman stories) (also, that Martian Manhunter joke was kinda good).

As read from previews, new Superman seems like a douchebag, so I'm kind of hoping Lois can do better.

It's Lois Lane and Superman, the odds of them NOT getting together (eventually) is about the same as the sky spontaneously turning charteuse with orange polka-dots.

"Clark, coming from Krypton didn't make you Superman, Martha and Jonathan did."

I've said a line like that should be in the next Superman movie, but somehow I never thought Lois would say it. She hit the proverbial nail on the head. Cool.

Also, I'll give the Post-Flashpoint "Lois and Clark aren't together" status quo a chance if we get a new "Here's how Lois and Clark fell in love" story out of it.

The problem with the issue was that the wonderful last scene was tacked onto a horrible 'event' that just dragged on and on, and affected too many characters at points where they didn't need to be dragged into the mess. The problem is that we have no indication that NEW DC will avoid the big mess stuff (despite their protestations about not writing for trades), but certainty that they're willing to toss out the good stuff, as in the dinner scene.

Good scene. Unfortunately, it reminds me of A) how stupid and useless "Grounded" was, and B) how DC feels it necessary to throw out a good husband/wife relationship so they can tell the same "will they or won't they" story that they told from 1938 to 1996. Because nearly 60 years of the story apparently wasn't enough.

I'm going to try to put the marriage out of my mind and enjoy the stories that are coming, but it's just annoying to me that one of the only superheroes out there who has had a good marriage and a stable family life is getting his marriage magically annulled and his parents killed off so he can have the same status quo that just about every other superhero in comics has.

Y'know, I was a very verbal OMD basher. I LOVED Peter and MJ. And I still agree with that, but from an editorial/story perspective, its the moment that they get together and get married that is important on an emotional level. Who doesn't remember the first kiss of their favorite fictional characters (right now Im thinking Chuck/Sarah on CHUCK)?

So, if Supes and Lois get together, and together in the right way, it would be good from a more novice reader perspective (and what DC wants is new readers). What has been wrong with Spidey/MJ has been 1) The devil stole the marriage - with MJ's consent! and 2) the execution and Peter's attitude towards women and 3) the reason: Spidey is better single, implying he will never be married again.

I think the big worry is that editorial won't let the marriage actually return. If they do build up a satisfying relationship and deliver, it's a moot point. But the comics industry in general seems very phobic of an actual married couple, and DC seems intent on restoring the Silver/Bronze Age tension with no implication that we'll get a payoff.

Can I make a suggestion here, for a way to tell DC what we think of this reboot?

Everyone here... go out and buy a copy of EVERY "last issue" from August.

And then *don't* buy anything starting on the 31st. Show them a bump in readership at the *end* of the continuity, and then a dropoff with the reboot.

Even Dankor won't be able to spin that to his bosses.
