    Martian Manhunter.

    This coming from someone who finds Martian Manhunter boring. He's the only one who writers will consistently have treat her with respect. Diana's pansexuality is also often ignored, and it would be nice to see her date an actual alien—not Superman's "is an alien, but looks like a human" type of alien.

    The fact that people are choosing Hal "shallow as a bowl of soup", tells me that you are probably ignoring Manhunter because he's "not cool enough".

    Besides that she should either date Zatanna or Canary, but only if the two have an established history of being bisexuals—no suddenly turning them gay just to have them date Diana.

    None. Having her date other League members almost always works out horribly for her.

    Also—its kind of demeaning to ask. Often times she’s the only female on the team. Let’s start making some of the males of the Big 7 gay/bi. We might finally get a good Superman/Batman interaction.

    In fanfiction, Diana and Hawkgirl (Shayera) frequently are an item, but I don't know if she is supposed to be with Hawkman. I don't follow JL very closely...

    I don't see how its demeaning to ask. Male characters get shipped with the same frequency as the females do in any fandom in hypothetical conversation.

    Batman and ... Green Lantern? Their obnoxious personalities and frequent butting of heads is actually hiding their UST? Or Flash and Cyborg if they're true "millennials" who are more ... flexible when it comes to their bedroom partners?

    Are they though? Most already have paramours in their own solo books. I very rarely see whole threads dedicated to whom they should be with. Batman & Superman? There are 3 threads on the first page of this sub-forum alone, while Batman & Superman each have one on the first page.

    The problem isn't really the shipping (and for all that shipping isn't my style of fannishness, I do note that many dedicated shipper fen take great care with their characters). It's how Diana is written in canon.

    In teams, there are traditionally two meta-narrative roles that women take. The first is as the lone exceptional woman, in effect to be a token. The other is as the status symbol for a male character. The (male) leader should have the highest social stats, so he gets a girlfriend.

    Diana has mostly been used in the first role in Justice League, while Sue (Invisible Woman) is arguably one of the best examples in comics of a woman in the second role. I don't see how such a switch would be an improvement for Wonder Woman. At least the former role usually gives some more room for agency on her part.

    That doesn't mean I'm wholly against Diana dating someone on the Justice League (I rather like the idea of her and Superman having a short romantic relationship shortly after they first met). But I don't trust DC as an institution to handle it well.
