Love is in the Air… Superman & Lois Lane
Despite Lois’s career as a reporter, her portrayal throughout these early years usually reduces her to either a damsel in distress or a lovesick schoolgirl. In the final feature in this issue, Lois battles Lana Lang — newly arrived in Metropolis from Smallville — for Superman’s affections, but most of the tension is an underhanded plot by the Man of Steel to rid himself of Lois’s ring, which is affecting his X-ray vision. Two other stories find Lois briefly learning the truth of Superman’s dual identity and being duped into believing she has the “kiss of death.”
