Don’t Send Me No More Letters No – Defending Superdickery

In this feature I spotlight responses that amuse me for whatever reason by Mort Weisinger to letters fans wrote in to the Superman family of titles back in the 1950s and 1960s. Here is an archive of past installments.

In this latest installment, Mort actually prints a criticism of Superman’s behavior by a reader!

In the letters column of Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #14, a reader attentively points out that Superman can be quite a dick to Lois sometimes (the story being referenced was in Lois Lane #10. I’ll feature it in a future edition of I Love Ya But You’re Strange eventually – suffice it to say that it was yet another example of Superman not letting Lois know that he’s on to a scheme of hers and instead just messing with her to teach her a lesson)…

I am actually just kind of impressed they even printed the criticism!


I don’t think listing “attractive” as Lois’ first good quality helps their case.

In a nutshell, “The Crybaby of Metropolis” has to have the most bizarre ending of a Lois Lane comic… ever!
