When it comes to dead loved ones, super heros sure are gullible. We got our hands on the first images from inside the issue where Superman and Wonder Woman lock lips.
In the real world, when a loved one dies under tragic or mysterious circumstances, you get therapy. When it happens in comic book land, you don a mask, bury your pain and kick in the teeth of the nearest villain. But all that guilt and self-loathing creates a wedge for the wrong person to exploit, as seems to be the case in Justice League #12.
While the cover image of Wonder Woman and Superman locked in a kiss stunned the comic world last week, it doesn't appear to be the main focus of the actual issue.

Warning: May cause spontaneous desire to achieve greatness. Corporal Todd Love isn't going to let something like losing all but one of his limbs slow him down.
The Spartan Race is an international obstacle course that challenges participants to push themselves beyond their limits. Which is exactly what Corporal Todd Love chose to do as part of Team E-X.T.R.E.M.E., an eight member group that signed up to run the Beast, the most brutal of all Spartan events.
Over a span of five and a half hours, 22-year-old Love covered 10.5 miles of muddy, rugged terrain and completed over 75 obstacles with minimal help from his team.
The corporal had been preparing for the challenge ever since he began to recover from the explosion in Afghanistan in 2010 that left him with only one of his natural limbs. Love said he set out, "…to push [myself] in all things physical, proving that overcoming obstacles isn’t just something you attempt, it’s something that you embrace."

With the Hindenburg up in flames, the entire airship industry is kaput. But in less than 40 years, the zeppelin traveled the world and changed history.
Zeppelin over Washington D.C. - 1920
Zeppelin Over The Capitol Building - 1928
Zeppelin Over Ocean - Date Unknown
Zeppelin In Egypt - 1931
The nation is plunged into mourning at such a senseless loss of life.
The Hindenburg was the largest airship ever constructed by man, but it only took slightly over a year before she was fatally compromised. On May 6th, 1937 she was filled with hydrogen instead of the militarily embargoed helium, and made her final transatlantic flight. For reasons unknown, the tail of Hindenburg caught flame and within seconds was completely obliterated. Thirty-six souls were lost, though sixty-two passengers miraculously survived. Footage from the scene has been captured below:
Before her destruction, the Hindenburg was the most luxurious zeppelin in the air, as these rare colorized photographs show.
R.I.P. you otherworldly creature. On September 7th, 1936 the captive animal succumbed to unknown causes.
Captured in 1933 by Elias Churchill, the thylacine was donated to the Hobart Zoo in Tasmania, Australia. An astonishing find for science, since the last known sighting had occurred three years previously and the unfortunate animals washout and killed by a local farmer.
The Thylacine's death comes as an especially bitter note for conservationists, who only 59 days previously had secured official government protection for the species. Though the hunt for more of its kind continues, hope is looking slim.

America is reeling from the senselessly brutal death of Hollywood starlet, Elizabeth Short. Who was this woman who's life was cut short one January night?
Elizabeth Short was a 22 year old Boston, Massachusetts transplant to L.A. where she hoped to break into acting and turn around what had hereto been an unpleasant young life.
Short's family had a history of strange police cases. After the stock market crash of 1929 left her family without assets, her father Cleo parked his car on a bridge and vanished. Though suicide was suspected, no body was found and Mr. Short would later turn up quite alive in California.
