Okay, I actually must give Superman kudos in this story. Afraid that his relationship with Lois Lane is placing her in harms way, Superman takes it upon his self to find Lois a husband, thus severing their relationship and removing her from danger.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not giving him any credit for going to such a length to keep her safe. Though it is surprising considering what a complete selfish bastard he is. What I find amazing is that he doesn't seem to hesitate to pick her a man that is oh-so-much hotter then himself.



What is it about the Daily Planet that attracts these eccentric string tie wearing types? I swear his is not the first.

I just want to say here that there was a time when I worked for a big research and development organization. One of those places where you were almost as likely too see army fatigues in the corridors as you were to see lab coats. I wouldn't say it was like the Umbrella Corporation or anything but I wouldn't say it wasn't like them either. I bring this up because all of the time I worked there, I assure, you I never saw a scientist that happening.

Breath taking indeed!

  Superman looks none too pleased.

I think the two broads on the bench should stay out of my, I mean Lois', business and get back to trying to marry off their granddaughters.

Perhaps the camera reveals a images of someone not nearly has attractive of the person you're taking the pictures of.

Yeah, we all saw this coming.

That totally blows. They finally offer up a romantic interest for Lois that I can totally get behind and they kill him off in the first story. The man even looked good while dying! Seems like a complete waste. Surely he deserved some sort of superhero spin off. Obviously there is always room for one more lab created scientist/superhero comic out there.

I'm in the WRONG business.

Back in school I had a professor try to encourage me to pursue writing as a career. I had no real interest. I had already made up my mine about the career path I planned to follow.

Well I was obviously wrong.

If I had had any idea that a career as a journalist on a big city newspaper would possibly include being asked to attend the grand opening of a wax museum AND then to try on my choice of clothes off a waxed figures back, I would have made a completely different decision.

Well, in Lois Lane -- Queen and Superman -- Commoner! our favorite girl reporter is asked to do just that.

We all know how great Lois looks in a calf-length skirt and pillbox hat, just imagine how great she'll look in a farthingale and ruff.

If the dagger is supposed to be cursed why is it on display with the a wax figures? I would think that dusty little curio shop from Friday the 13th - the series would have been a far more appropriate place.

You'll pose as King Henry VIII, who was a famous glutton! Really, that is what you're going with. Not the six wives thing? Not separating the Church of England from the Catholic Church and papal authority thing? Just the obesity. Seems a little too obvious. But, you're the reporter.

How come I don't get calls this exciting from my sister? She normally just calls to borrow something from me.

Seeing Lois in the whole Cleopatra outfit makes looking at Princess Leia in her slave girl outfit feel about as exciting as looking at your sister, doesn't it boys?

I don't understand why Superman even stopped by.

As Lois' performance reaches a climax ... That's it. I just wanted to repeat that.

Ah, with your glasses off, you look handsome. Yeah, I can see how those glasses might throw you off.

Wow, I believe a very similar scenario played out after the release of Troll 2.
