Turns out the colourist for Jon's book is a comicsgater. He's been openly critiquing the company and will not renew his contract when it expires.

I'm not even trade purchasing Batman/Catwoman anymore. I was right to just go to readcomicsonline and read it that way. The whole thing is a trap, it's King deconstructing everything that makes that pairing work and butchering Selina in the process. She's not even attempting to resemble the same character she was even when King was writing her in the regular books.

And the replacement art is s*it.

Just a marketing decision, It's a relic of the past, an old catchphrase that even the movie from the 70s mocks it "you'll be fighting every elected official", Superman Returns did it as well and people didn't get triggered back then. Only the 50s show played it straight and those people who watched that show are likely dead. It doesn't make sense when superman is now a "world hero" since he faces world destroying threats, hell universe destroying ones. Dubs around the world have always dubbed that away regardless. Pointless in today's world like "stronger than a locomotive".

Fake edit: after googling it, it wasn't even the original motto as I thought was likely the case: "a never-ending battle for truth and justice." is the original motto, the american way was added during world war II in a radio show for a little bit before the 50s show picked it up, since the it's only been referenced the same way 60s Batman is sometimes referenced in newer Batman media in a silly reference since it's just not logical for current batman either.

It's still been a part of Superman for decades. That Bryan Singer intentionally didn't type that last part into the script (on purpose, of course) with his rapey little hands for a Superman movie nobody liked is neither here nor there.

It isn't a problem with it not being used. It's more of an issue that the "American way" part is being loudly and publicly removed for virtue signaling purposes, as if that's somehow problematic. It's not.

In any case, WB lost the copyright to it in 2007:

Of course they're going to milk it to make sure it's 'controversial' and it gets people talking about Superman since it's the only thing that seems to work to get people excited about him. They need to make him gay with fake headlines (since it was his son). In the 90s they had to kill him and have him get married, same problem different decade. The reason is marketing worldwide that simple, it isn't because WB is attacking America or SJW are destroying superman, that's just silly but it's what you find people writing in comments, getting triggered about and believing.

Mostly it's about DC/WB having to constantly alter Superman to maintain a copyright over him they've been fighting to retain since forever. If by simultaneously doing so, they can also win some SJW virtue signaling points and New York Times attention while they're at it from the woke crowd? By all means, seems to be their playbook.

The headline made me snicker due to the period we are going through in media.

So is the longest will they/eon't they Bruce and Selina? Hal and Carol are in the running too.

It's getting ridiculous with Hal and Carol. Grant Morrison bigged up their connection a lot when he was promoting his run, but in the actual book, he just has Hal shack up with obscure girlfriends from prior runs and then has Carol make him 'wait' for another chance for reasons she long outgrew back when Geoff was writing the book.

With Dick/Babs, this is their first real meaningful romantic interaction since they broke off their engagement after Infinite Crisis. That's a long time, possibly a longer interval than it took for Peter and MJ to be reunited in the mainline Spider-Man comics...and assuming you don't want to count the Convergence series where the pre-flashpoint versions did get married
