+ This is just about the wildest news I can think of to end this year with: The Knights of Steel version of Supergirl and Wonder Woman are A COUPLE who SMOOCH ON THE MOUTH in the comic! This Supergirl is not Kara Danvers, but Jor-El’s daughter and Kal-El’s sister, Princess Zala. The GamesRadar writer who broke the news thinks its an homage to Kara and Lena Luthor. Valerie Anne, whomst I just showed this to, thinks, “SO WE COULD HAVE HAD SUPERCORP?????” Fair question, PunkyStarshine!
