From day one in Action #1 (1938), Lois Lane has been prominently featured in the Superman story. Not just as a love interest but a self sufficient, gutsy, confident, capable career woman with enough Chutzpah and spirit to light up a metropolitan city for decades. She’s won a Pulitzer and is a well respected journalist of the Daily Planet and the world.
Her husband, Clark Kent, says she has a good heart. Batman says Lois is the brains of the couple; Superman does not disagree. She is his hero, hope, and love, forever and always. She is his one and only!
On Wednesday, June 22nd, Flashpoint: Lois Lane and the Resistance #1 arrives in comic shops everywhere and online. Be sure to get your copy. The story may not be what you expect. There is no Superman or Clark Kent involved.
For our show on Saturday, June 25th at 6pm ET, we will be discussing Lois Lane in all her incarnations. Besides her appearances in the many Superman books and in her own Silver Age book, Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane, she has been in Batman, Birds of Prey, Nightwing, Wonder Woman, JLA, as well as other books, special editions, elseworlds, animation, movies and television.
We’re quickly gathering some of our favorite stories and those that show everyone why Superman/Clark Kent finds his soulmate so irresistible. She is a superhero without superpowers or gadgets. She is one hell of a lady. Come and tell us why you love her as much as we do.
If you would like to read some great Lois stories, you can catch some on Intro to Superman Comics 101.
