"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
In this feature, I spotlight five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Here is an archive of all the patterns we’ve spotlighted so far.
Today and tomorrow will spotlight patterns involving Lois Lane. Today, just like how there are a lot of exact doubles of Clark Kent/Superman running around, so, too, are there a lot of Lois Lane doubles! Here are five!
I like how even as early as World’s Finest Comics #40, crooks were figuring out how repetitive the Lois Lane/Superman relationship was…
In Action Comics #195, after seemingly see a crook who looks just like her kill Clark Kent in front of her, Lois gets temporary amnesia and tricks herself into thinking she IS the crook!
Oh, temporary amnesia, is there any plot you CAN’T make better?
In Superman #57, Superman goes to the future where he meets a descendent of Lois Lane’s who, naturally, looks exactly like her…
In Superman #158, Superman is in the Bottled City of Kandor, where, naturally, Lois Lane has an exact double…
She showed up a number of times during the Silver Age.
Finally, in Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane #1, Lois proves that with a wig, any woman can look like any other woman out there…
While not as messed up as some Lois Lane stories, this one was still pretty messed up in Superman deciding to teach Lois a lesson for her having the audacity to dress up like a famous movie star to get a story.
