Love is in the Air… Superman & Lois Lane

DC Comics Volume.1, No. 7, February 1959. Featured month for May in our 2018 Vintage Superman Calendar.

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.”
