Some fans of mainstream superhero comics need to understand something in order to avoid further disappointment. There will probably never be a definitive end for these characters’ stories. They will probably remain at roughly the same age and roughly the same stage of their lives forever, either due to “elastic continuity” or reboots. As a result, there is no “happily ever after” for these characters. Their stories will always continue and, since they’re superheroes, their stories will always require conflict and obstacles for our heroes to overcome. So, yeah, sometimes these characters will get depressed, or angry, or confused about the right course of action. They will be seperated indefinitely from their true love. They will have their bodies possessed by their arch-enemies. And when that’s over, there’ll be something else for them to overcome. And they will never settle down and be happy, and get the good life they deserve for their heroism. Because that would be an incredibly boring superhero comic to read month after month.
It is was it is.
If you want “happily ever after” maybe you should read something else.

Just been thinking about the old DC Comics message boards. When the the New 52 was announced there was a guy on there who announced he was conducting a local survey to prove the New 52 was a terrible mistake. I can just imagine this guy with a clipboard bothering people at bus stops, going “Don’t you think they should have kept the red pants on Superman? DON’T YOU?!”
I wonder what happened to all these weirdos after DC lopped the message board off their website like a diseased limb?
