Lois Lane

This post over at Stars and Garters about the worst in comics for the year has me very glad I'm not reading the Superman books, mainly for the ill treatment Lois Lane is receiving. I grew up reading Lois Lane and Supergirl. Kara was the one closest to my age, but she was an alien with powers I could never have. Lois was the human, a woman whose power came from within. A topnotch reporter with infinite curiosity. Sure, she was usually reduced to trying to prove Superman and Clark Kent were one and the same, but still... She had her own freaking book for years and other than Wonder Woman, who had powers, and briefly, Supergirl in the '70s, that just wasn't the norm and still isn't. Lois was and is iconic and to know she's being treated like dirt and that Clark is acting like a super D-bag is sad. Very sad.


  1. What did poor Lois ever do to Dan Didio? Or Stephanie or Cass or Roy for that matter. Lois has been around a heckuva lot longer that SOME Super Heroes. This whole thing with Superman and Wonder Womn just feels so...forced.

    1. At least Roy has an interesting life in the New52, which is far more than we can say about Lois, or Steph and Cass, though in the case of Steph and Cass, maybe absence is a good thing. Who knows what kind of crap lives they'd have in the DCnU.
