This issue follows on from the events in Wonder Woman #16, Superman #17 and Adventures of Superman #440. It finally addresses the issue of how Diana and Kal feel about each other in the post crisis universe and defines their relationship to be that of “just good friends” within the DC Universe, just as it remains to this day.

During the New 52 DC changed this status quo so that Diana and Kal became lovers. However, this never sat well with fans of either character and with the advent of Rebirth, this romance was quietly forgotten about. Kal died and was replaced by a Superman from an alternate universe, who was not only happily married to Lois Lane but who also had a son with her. Meanwhile Diana and Steve once more became lovers versus the uneasy estranged couple they had been depicted as during New 52.
