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 saying 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.

  1. Jesus! What a heartbreaking story. Don't you kind of hate Clark Kent a little at the end? Goody-two-shoes prick.

    I have to say, LL looked particularly hot this issue.

    1. Mykal: I always kind of hate Clark Kent.

      I agree Lois does look good except for the every first panel where I find her a wee bit frightening.

    2. Clark Kent didn't do anything but stay out of Lois' romance. I don't get the hate at all.

    3. Blues: You obviously are tuning in late. The hate is for fun!

      I don't really hate Superman and more than I want to jump on Lois Lane's crazy train.

      That Jimmy Olsen bastard is another story!

    4. I should point out though, ignoring the whole saving her life all the time thing, his is a crappy boyfriend.

    5. Blues: It's deeply confusing, I know, all this raw hate. Try this. Imagine that everything said in this post, and in the comments section, is exaggerated a bit for humorous effect.

    1. Richard, I'm being to suspect that there is a whole lot about science in general and Adrenaline X in particular that I just don't understand.
