Charles Soule & Tony Daniel answered questions about this fall’s new SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN ongoing series.
Newsarama: Charles, what’s your take on Superman and Wonder Woman together in a comic? Is it about contrasting them, similar to what we’ve seen over the years in other team-up comics like World’s Finest or Superman/Batman? Are they that different?
Charles Soule: I think they’re very similar in a lot of ways, which is partly why they were attracted to each other in the first place, but I also think Superman and Wonder are extremely different.
You know, one grew up in a sort of cloistered society on Paradise Island, where she was trained to be a warrior, and had the gods running around and so-on, so-forth, whereas Superman grew up in Kansas and had to grow into his powers not really knowing who he was and where he came from.
So culturally, I think they’re extraordinarily different people. And the way they approach their own powers and their own identity and their role in the world is very different.
At the same time, I think in the entire DCU, maybe you’ve got a hundred people who actually can fly, and Superman and Wonder Woman happen to be two of them. So there are things that only the two of them can talk about. So it’s great to be able to write those conversations and have them do the things that only the two of them can do, while also learning all the things that are different about each other.

Soule’s ” They’re going to interact with each book’s supporting cast, when it’s organic. I mean, I’m not going to put characters in just because they’ve traditionally been a part of either one of their supporting casts. If there’s a reason for somebody to show up, then they certainly show up.” is my favorite quote in this article. So excited about this book.
