The series focuses on Batman and Superman as brothers. After their father dies, Lois Lane is tasked with heading to Themyscira to tell their sister Zala-El, Princess of the House of El, her father has died.
Lane finds Zala and breaks the news to her as she is sparring Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman then goes from training mode to full-out comfort mode as she holds Zala, this universe’s Supergirl, and the two kiss.

While this might be the first time fans get to see Wonder Woman in a same-sex relationship, she’s queer in the main DC universe too. Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka confirmed Diana is part of the LGBTQ+ space in 2016. When asked if Wonder Woman has been in love and had relationships with other women, he told Comicosity, “the answer is obviously yes.”
