DC Comics’ new Batman/Superman series hits stands later this month, but that book isn’t the only one in which Big Blue is going to be teaming up with one of his Justice League cohorts.
In October, new ongoing series Superman/Wonder Woman by writer Charles Soule (Swamp Thing) and artist Tony Daniel (Action Comics) will follow the exploits of the DC Universe’s most powerful power couple as they fight crime and make out in thunderstorms.
I hope this title turns out fantastic, and at least Charles Soule is aware of how badly things could go and he is going to try to make this an equal partnership.
fuck u b-man
Hahahaha, oh my god, no! It’s a creative idea but we wouldn’t love Ted if he just got up and walked out on a, probably, happy marriage.
@dccomics @dandidio1 @CharlesSoule @geoffjohns
We are so looking forward to seeing our favorite DC couple in one series! Thank you!!! SQUEEE! Out in October, everyone! Written By Charles Soule and art by Tony Daniel!!!!
So excited. I am actually going to the comic book store to buy this come October. I just hope it focuses a bit more on the action than the romance.
Antje Traue as Faora, from Man of Steel.
I am in love with this character. She needs a spin-off of her own.
Oh I hope not; that would just make Barney disingenuous. It wouldn’t be honest for him to say he had the locket when it was Ted all along. In the long run I bet if Ted does give her the locket, she’ll decide that the universe thing doesn’t mean anything to her and marry Barney anyway. I won’t be happy about it though. :/

I need some new Spock/Chapel fic. I’ve probably read every story online that is worth reading. Seriously guys, I have been reading My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfiction to supplement my Spock/Chapel feels but it isn’t working. Those of you with writing talent, please get on that.
While it is unfair of me to demand something I am not willing to do myself, (I swear it’s because I have no talent) I am willing to share my crappy five minute sketches under the cut. Btw, I cheated and used references.

We first saw Christine in “The Naked Time” where she made a memorable debut as the woman who confessed her love to the unemotional and detached Mr. Spock. This; however, was not her first appearance on paper. From my last post Majel Barrett-the actress who portrayed Chapel-stated: “I was watching each of these scripts coming in, because I knew what I was going to do; they weren’t going to keep me out of this thing. It didn’t happen until about the fifth or sixth script came in [‘What Are Little Girls Made Of?’]. There was a character by the name of Christine; originally her name wasn’t Chapel—it was something French. I had just finished a play using the last name of Chapel, and I just liked it so much. I thought, ‘Christine Chapel; ah, that sounds like Sistine Chapel. There’s a little play on words.’ The rest of the story stayed the same—she was this doctor going out after her fiancé”
“What Are Little Girls Made Of?” is as close as a Christine Chapel centric episode as we were ever going to get and it highlights whatever relationship she might have with Captain Kirk at the time. He definitely will not forget who she is after this episode! Funfact: this episode was written by Robert Bloch, the author of Psycho. The same guy who created Norman Bates also created Christine Chapel, but uhh…I don’t know if that is something to be excited about.
The plot revolves around Chapel’s missing fiancé, sometimes erroneously identified as her husband, Roger Korby who also happens to be a renowned scientist. We find out Chapel is on board the Enterprise because she has taken it upon herself to join the Enterprise in the hopes of finding him. This piece of information is interesting because fandom has taken this tidbit and made their own assumptions of Christine Chapel’s character. Christine Chapel is actually a very polarizing character. It seems people either love her or hate her, partly because of this info. Some see her as brave and determined to take it upon herself to search for the man she loves and rescue him, others see her as a desperate woman willing to compromise her career in order to get married. It is notable that she took a demotion to be posted on the Enterprise, according to the season two writer’s guide:
NURSE CHRISTINE CHAPEL —- Introduced in an early episode and returning on several other occasions, Nurse Chapel is played by Majel Barrett. She is Dr. McCoy’s Head Nurse, a skilled Surgical Assistant, as near to a professional confidant as the irascible “Bones” McCoy is likely to have. That relationship never transgresses onto the personal and an unspoken bond is that fact that she, too, is in a Starfleet Service because of a tragic romance. Although she herself holds several university degrees in Research Medicine, she has found a measure of contentment in this life as a Starfleet Nurse and wanderer.
Whether you see her as romantic, strong, foolish, or pathetic, she was always professional and more than just someone to bark orders at. With her multiple degrees in research medicine, she probably knew more than McCoy! In later episodes we will see how her degrees come in handy, but for now we will delve into her second appearance, “What Are Little Girls Made Of?”
TL;DR post ahead with images
Does this make Ted Chaough the best father on Mad Men? Considering the bar is very very low.
