Today marks the 75th anniversary of not just Superman/Clark Kent, but also Lois Lane. This duo has captivated audiences for decades. Talk about a power couple!
It’s no secret that Clark and Lois are my favorite couple in comic book mythos. There’s something magical about them that draws me in throughout every incarnation. To me, they aren’t just a couple. I love them as individuals. A lot of that has to do with Lois Lane.
What’s not to love about Lois? I hesitate to say that she is a “strong female character” because she means much more to me, both as a fan and as a writer. Lois Lane is cool and confident when she needs to be, and vulnerable when she wishes she wasn’t. I like to think Lois represents humanity, the fantastic and the flawed, and how you don’t need to be a superhero to make positive changes in the world. You just have to be the best person you can be.
Isn’t that what we try to do?
So Happy Anniversary, Superman and Lois! Here’s to many more!
