“Superpussycat” (formerly Superman)

See the kryptonite cage. A dead giveaway that it's not an Earth cat.


Is Lois about to throw a hook or will she turn that punch into a straight right?

Not all print journalists are modest

I have never actually heard a reporter refer to himself or herself as “famous.”

But I've known plenty who assumed everyone read every word of each and every story they wrote. And they held fast to this magical thinking even after years of being confronted with ample evidence to the contrary.

I guess we all all fool ourselves in one way or another. 

Why didn’t Perry see it before it ran?

A) Under orders from on high to run whatever damn thing Lois Lane did on A1, Perry White had taken to spending most of his time quietly getting soused in his office. Go ahead and call him “Chief.” He didn't care. Just close the door on your way out. B) Starting around 1963, Perry pretty much just paid attention to the Planet's website. C) Clark is holding a page proof. Miss Lane's sensational story hadn't actually run yet. D) Other.  

The next Lois Lane

The versatile Amy Adams will play the intrepid reporter in the upcoming “Man of Steel.”

Do you approve?

Why is Lois dressed like Mrs. Claus?

Well, a somewhat younger and more skirtless version of Mrs. Claus than we usually see.

Not all reporters are neutral observers

And not all headline writers feel the need to make the lines come out even.
