Post a page (or pages) that you feel express the best moment of your favorite DC couple. I am going to ad the caveat of 1 page per issue of a book unless it’s from a special that has multiple stories like DC Love is a Battlefield or batman vol 3 # 50 or if the issue has more than one of your favorite DC couples Like Batman vol 3 # 37. Also as this may contain spoilers please blur out anything from the last 6th months
To start with form the pages of Detective Comics #648
Nice NightOracle moments. The only one I recognize (and know what issue it is from) is Nightwing and Oracle: convergence issue 2…may not be the actual name of the issue. What issue is the last page from?
I really love Diana and Steve, though I first imprinted on Diana when she was single, so it doesn’t feel as intrinsic to her character as Lois and Clark, or Batman and Catwoman. But when written well, as you highlight here, it’s gorgeous.
I did post a Clark/Lois page it was Wait Who is Who from double date where batman and superman trade costumes and so do Lois and Selina. It’s also the start of my favorite female friendship in the Rebirth era (and possibly the start of it) Lois & Selina, you just know these two get up to no good/good investigative reporting together.
I love that you used the word “imprinted” - that’s the perfect description for when we first feel an attachment to a character.
In my case, my first experience with Diana was with the movies, so I think that’s why I’m so attached to Steve. Of course he is not necessary for her to be Wonder Woman - she is my favorite character regardless of her relationship status. And I’d much rather she be single than in an unhealthy relationship.
As you pointed out, the way they are written is so important. Steve should be the embodiment of the best in the human race that Diana has come to protect. When written well, they have a relationship of equals. Everyone deserves a shot at a healthy relationship like that - and Diana is so good, I will always want that for her. (That Black and Gold comic is the ultimate summation of this IMO.)
