    So here's a question: what makes the TD picture "too racy" and this not too racy?

    This is tame and tastefull. A little bit of slice of life that people here in this forum, many of them neutral about this pairing, said was lacking for Clark and Diana.

    Which issue was this supposed to be from, may I ask? Would this still be canon despite being cut (like deleted scenes in movies occasionally are)?

    Just putting this out there:

    Superman and Wonder Woman will be guest starring in Tony Daniel's current title Deathstroke ... it would be awesome if he were allowed to use this image (or something to the equivalent) somewhere in that arc. It would give the editorial staff a chance to redeem themselves

    It was probably for SM/WW #5. Even with the toned down scene of Diana getting dressed there were complaints. 'Cause she showed legs!

    No, it just means they're still prudish when it comes to Diana. Hopefully the overwhelmingly positive response to the pic on Instagram where it was originally posted will show DC that such imagery won't be viewed as an affront to the character nor will it create any realistic backlash that they'll have to defend against. Its not going to bother anyone unless you get real explicit, which this image was not in any facet of the imagination.

    I think that superhero comics should be written mainly for children so I would say yes.

    Well, in this one he is wearing pants and she has on the Superman shirt she bought as a pyjama top from Kmart.

    First off, I love this pic. Tony Daniels really outdid himself with it. I just want to say that.

    As for it being too racy...all I can say to that is this is 2015. Compared to some of the stuff characters like Starfire, Black Cat, and Emma Frost get away with on a regular basis, this might as well be a Disney movie. There's nothing gratuitous about it. There's nothing overly pornographic about it. It's just two consenting adults in love sharing an intimate moment. How can that possibly be too racy when just a few years ago they had Starfire bed hopping with the Outlaws? I get that Wonder Woman and Superman aren't Starfire. But these comics aren't like the old kids shows. They're more mature and they exist in a more mature universe. So it really does bother me that this gets called "racy" when it's so tame compared to other recent examples.

    As many of us are aware by now, this picture by Tony Daniel was posted online a few days ago. It was cut out of a previous issue of SMWW for apparently being "Too racy"



    Personally I think it's a good tasteful drawing and should never have been cut out.

    If you have an opinion on this please discuss.

    NOTE: This is not a question of whether or not you approve of the relationship. It is a question of whether you think the image is 'Too racy" for a comic book rated 'Teen +' . Please be honest and relevant Thank you
    I didn't see this. The book is T+? I think not. Even then, I remember similar scenes even in PG books.

    edit 1 - Ah. It's a pity some posts were deleted. It was all in good fun and nobody got hurt. It was cool to do some good will for the BM/WW fans (New Avengers 'BM' inheriting 'WW's lasso), LOL. Notice I'm not questioning the moderators, just saying it wasn't childish drama or something like that, LOL. But if the thread maker didn't want it, it's cool.

    I also think that Blacksun's last post was a picture of a pairing in bed and a valid example for this thread, and not off-topic.

    edit 2 - I've read all over that this panel shouldn't have been shown because Superman shouldn't have sex before marriage, 'cause he's a farmboy, Diana should stay a virgin, Clark has 'midwestern values', it could upset oldschool fans... For real? Anyone here really believes this? In the Silver Age Supes was dating space-mermaid-phoenix-amazons. And we are going to reverse the character like that? And Diana already had sex with Steve. We are going to reverse that too? WTH?

    I'm sorry Brett, you have some good arguments, but for all of that I can't believe you really believe yourself. We are in 2015. That shark was jumped years ago. Nobody cares if Superman and Wonder Woman have sex. C'mon. Who exactly would it bother?
