SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE #14 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoiler alerts ahead!)

 

Earlier this week, we teased that JUSTICE LEAGUE #14 would reveal the fate of the transformed Superman after being bitten by the Cheetah. Well if you picked up the issue when it hit stores this past Wednesday, you now know exactly what we were talking about!

 

In JUSTICE LEAGUE #14, the League continues their battle against the Cheetah and Superman, while simultaneously trying to protect the Man of Steel from the wounds inflicted upon him. Deep in the forest, they meet the tribe that the Cheetah was meant to protect. The head of this tribe details the long history of the Cheetah and reveals that the root of the problem is not that the Goddess of the Hunt is evil. Instead, it’s the woman possessed by her who is! 

 

After being captured by the tribe, Superman is cured, and Cheetah gets locked away in Belle Reve. But once behind bars, the villainess begins to talk to an unseen source, revealing that her imprisonment was all part of a larger and mysterious plan. Meanwhile, on the Watchtower, the League tells Diana that Barbara Minerva is a lie. She is actually a wanted criminal who continues to switch identities to escape the authorities. Hurt by this news about the woman she once called her best friend, Wonder Woman seeks comfort in the Man of Steel.

 

Much to the surprise of the local customers, Superman takes Wonder Woman to the Smallville Diner in an attempt to help her regain some incentive to be the superhero that she is. Afterwards, he takes her on a tour of the Kent family farm and the duo share another passionate kiss.

 

Little do these lovebirds know, someone is watching their every move! It’s their teammate, Batman. And judging by the look on his face, he seems less than thrilled about his friends’ developing romance. How will the Dark Knight’s knowledge of Wonder Woman and Superman’s relationship impact it? And more importantly, what will this mean for the Justice League itself? Place your bets in the comments section!

 

Below, take a look at the final pages of “The Secret of the Cheetah” as Superman and Wonder Woman kiss under the watchful eye of Batman. Setting the stage for next month’s epic crossover event with AQUAMAN, “Throne of Atlantis,” JUSTICE LEAGUE #14 comes to you from the creative team of writer Geoff Johns and artists Tony S. Daniel, Matt Banning, and Sandu Florea. Pick up the issue, in stores now!
