Hmm... so let me see if I understand this Bob Haney Supergirl-Wonder Woman story:

This is really a tale of female empowerment for both Supergirl and Wonder Woman, who decide for themselves to go against Superman's chauvinistic ideal for them to be super-heroines. And they do this by choosing to act "weak and feminine" so they can be attractive and "ideal women" to two obviously chauvinistic French men. And later they realize that in their hearts they really are supposed to be heroines and thus choose for themselves to give up their preferred male chauvinistic ideal to follow Superman's, essentially?

I need to track this issue down and read it for myself. I *must* be missing something here.

In any case, I wish that I could kiss like that Andre fellow -- just so I can give my wife the same mind-numbing snogging that she is able to plant on me...

And Shag, your portrayal of Wonder Woman's dialogue was so impressive that I would want to cast you as Princess Diana in an upcoming Valentine's Day DC Heroes panto that I will quickly make up and arrange just so I can cast you for it. I'm sure we can find a satin bustier that will fit you...
