In the wake of Dark Nights: Death Metal, the current Justice League is changing the team’s lineup a bit, due to the changes in the Omniverse. One of those changes is Naomi, someone who Superman has vouched for after dealing with her and her extraterrestrial enemies in the past in Action Comics.

And in Justice League #60, we’re getting more insight into two other members who’ll be joining the ranks soon and in the process, DC teases the reunion of its next power couple: Black Adam and Hippolyta.

Adam’s been brought to the League’s headquarters as the Man of Steel is making a case for him to be a hero. In Infinite Frontier #0, Kal-El saw the good Adam has been doing so he wants the powerhouse to be with them, especially since it’ll allow them to monitor him given his sketchy past.

They end up being thrust into duty a bit sooner than expected however, as Brutus, a killer from Naomi’s mysterious homeworld touches down and attacks. He went to Themyscira to take the Amazons out but was repelled by Hippolyta, who hammered him back to the world of man. Realizing she’s much stronger than he thought, Brutus teleports out, vowing to bring more soldiers as he could sense the League was coming too.

But when she sees Adam at the site, Hippolyta is disgusted, making it clear she wants nothing to do with him. She departs for Paradise Island, leaving Naomi asking Hawkgirl if they have a thing. Hawkgirl plays it off, but Adam clues us in that at least he may have a crush, calling her the most impressive warrior he’s known. It helps that he’s all doe-eyed and flush watching her fly away.

What’s interesting is without Diana, Hippolyta is set to be the new Wonder Woman in the League, taking up the mantle yet again in her daughter’s absence. And it seems that Adam may end up working to gain her forgiveness as he knows his actions in the recent Endless Winter event pissed her off. They were close to calming the Frost King down, but Adam’s hastiness crushed that plan when he attacked, costing them the fight.

This led to the ice warrior losing his family and harboring an eternal vendetta against Earth, so it will take a while for Hippolyta to offer him a second chance. But once he has patience, it could happen as she did seem to have a small crush on him when they fought together centuries ago, which hints that Adam could win her over still and pursue something more.
