Lois goes to a future. Meets a very different Superman.
Lois goes to the future. Meets a very different Clark.
Whether it’s via Kryptonian technology based on the Phantom Zone Projector or a Legion ring, Lois Lane time travelling teaches us one constant, the Man of Steel is lost without her.
Saturday, August 13th at 6pm EDT, G2 Factor examines the simple intricacies of this iconic relationship.
We’re very happy to be reviewing Superman: The Animated Series’ BRAVE NEW METROPOLIS and Smallville’s season 9 episode, PANDORA. If you’ve ever read Superman’s FOR TOMORROW series in the comics, you will recognize Jim Lee’s amazing art come to life.
Join us at G2Factor on talkshoe.
No matter what age of the story or whether or not Lois knows the secret, her life affects Clark Kent/Superman like no other. She is as much a part of his complete characterization as his dual identities. In September, Clark and Lois lose their marriage in comics continuity. We have not seen very much reverence for this status quo change in the last few books of Post Crisis.
We do know that Clark and Lois are in each other’s orbit in the DCnU’s Superman books authored by George Perez. Grant Morrison, who is writing Action Comics, has not really given us anything definite regarding Clark/Superman meeting Lois in his first issue. We hope that he does include, at the very least, a meeting between Lois and his Bruce Springsteen Superman. In the 1938 issue, we saw Clark asking Lois out for a date in their very first panel together and she met Superman that evening when he saved her from mobsters.
Flashpoint has only given us glimpses (literally) of ‘Subject One’ outside his books or Flashpoint #3. Lois Lane was barely in her second Flashpoint: Lois Lane and the Resistance book. How this Flashpoint series will affect the Action comics or Superman comics of the future is uncertain. Superman appears to be taking the brunt of this change with the interment of his marriage and return to his first days in Metropolis. (On the flipside, Batman has an internment program going with multiple Robins over a five year period.)
