Earlier this month, we gave you seven reasons why Superman would be single in the post-Flashpoint DC Universe, and recent Dan DiDio comments in NBC’s “PopcornBiz” site seem to back that theory up. Says the co-publisher:
Let’s just say it’s being reexamined, because it’s something that I think is something that is so valuable to the character’s story that you really want to explore all facets of it. Not just as it exists currently.
Some folks have interpreted this as definitive confirmation that the 15-year Clark Kent and Lois Lane marriage (originally inspired by the Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman TV series) is donezo, but seeing as how Action Comics has been established as at least initially taking place in the past, maybe he’s just unmarried in that book. After all, marriage is a facet of the relationship. Grasping at straws? Maybe. We’ll see for sure in September.
