So DC says that you can’t tell interesting stories about married people. And to shake things up they split up Clark & Lois and Barry & Iris and Apollo & Midnighter. Because God forbid we should actually try to be creative and write good stories about people with actual feelings and not, you know, one-note brooding idiots in spandex.
But, DC, guess what. The most critically acclaimed title of the new 52? Arguably the best thing to come out of the reboot? The most imaginative and wildly exciting comic book currently in stores?
A book about a guy superheroing together with his wife.
His two kids.
And his mother-in-law.
