You’ve already heard that Superman and Wonder Woman have become the world’s most powerful super couple, seen kissing on the cover of Geoff John’s Justice League issue 12.
But now dating site Match.com has decided to get in on the action, declaring Superman the world’s most kissable superhero and creating dating profiles for the Last Son of Krypton and everyone’s favorite Amazonian.
Yahoo blog The Sideshow reports that the stunt is part of the marketing campaign for issue 12 and that the profiles were written by the DC Comics’ creative team.
“As a couple, they are a classic match of a high-testosterone male and the high-estrogen female and they have many cultural and biological traits that will fuel their romance,” Dr. Helen Fisher, Match.com’s chief scientific adviser, told Yahoo News. “Although Superman comes from a different planet, while Wonder Woman harks from an isolated island, both are aliens to our modern world.”
The blog Nerdage reports it is the first kiss between Superman and Wonder Woman in the New 52 continuity.
Wonder Woman, known on her fictional home island as Princess Diana of Themyscira, is listed on her dating profile as seeking “human men” and as a single, Amazonian warrior.
“This tiara on my head isn’t just a prop,” Wonder Woman’s profile reads. “I’m a princess searching for her prince. I’m looking to rope someone that is brave, strong, truthful — well, actually, if I rope you the “truthful” part sort of takes care of itself.”
(Note to the non-comic reader: Wonder Woman has a magic lasso that can compel anyone caught by it to tell the truth.)
Superman, who’s birth name is Kal-el and who lives among humanity as mild mannered reporter Clark Kent, is seeking human women. His profile says he tried the office dating scene but “I couldn’t handle the drama: too much office gossip, co-workers always getting kidnapped by super villains, etc.”
Superman’s user handle is YellowSunsRule38, referencing Earth’s sun that gives him his powers, while Wonder Woman’s name is Glamazon41.
