Supermanís Girl Friend Lois Lane

 SGFL   (DC, 1958-1974)

ô and © DC Comics, Inc.

Lois Lane got her first taste of the spotlight in Showcase #9Ė10 before going on to star in this long-running title. Lois may have been a star reporter for the Daily Planet, but in this long-running series, her real career was Superman. Her entire life seemed to be centered around finding out his secret identity and in luring him into proposing marriage. She tried no end of schemes to accomplish these ends, including trying to gain super-powers so that she could truly become Mrs. Superman.

It seemed that anytime another woman made an appearance in this series, it would inevitably end in a catfight. Naturally, DC took every opportunity to exploit this, regularly featuring Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Lori Lemaris, and other vexing vixens. Things got even worse for Lois when Rose and Thorn were introduced in issue #105.
