Lyla is my favorite.

What the.........Huh??

Ok, I've read that Luma Lynai story more than once, and never noticed how extremely weird the cover was. So why didn't he just marry Supergirl...oh yeah, because of that Kryptonian law binding on Earth that forbade cousin-marriage!

The writers were having too much fun with Supergirl, having her wish she could marry her Cousin, her marrying her pet Horse, go-go Boots, etc Wink

As I've said in other threads, I love Lana.  Not sure any girl is right for Kal, honestly, but I'd have liked Lana for myself!

I am not a Lois fan and never have been.  I'm probably the poster Captain Kal is referring to having said Lois is Superman's "greatest enemy." Certainly in decades' worth of stories, she was presented as the woman who would domesticate...no make that neuter...Superman if she got him.  It was made clear that if Superman and Lois tied the knot, his freedom, and thence the fun, would be over.  In fact it's a wonder we young male Superman readers didn't all grow up to be hard-core misogynists.

Lana, on the other hand, was the friend, the pal, the sweetheart.  Maybe it's because I mostly remember her from Superboy stories, where boy/girl relationships were presented as flirty, harmless fun...as they usually are at that age.  No chance Lana was going to manuever Clark into matrimony at age 15, so that negative spin is gone from their relationship.  Lois, though, represents the writers' notion of a grown woman...the time for no-strings attached flirting is over, mere friendship can never be enough...she needs commitment and she needs it now.

Tormentor to Clark, conniving threat to Superman...no, there's not much to like about Lois in the classic comics.  (Except for Maggin's great four-parter "Who Took The Super Out of Superman?").  

I have a soft spot for Lori Lemaris, but honestly it's hard to wish for a "happy ending" that puts Superman underwater the rest of his life.

The page where Clark and Lois are on dating at Clark's house is my favorite pre-Crisis moment! I didn't really cared for Lois until I read that page... Something similar happened to me when I read SUPERMAN #212 (chapter 9 of the "For tomorrow" saga).

Silver age Lois stories:
1) How to prove Clark Kent is Superman
2)How to get Superman to marry her (or romance her)
3)Fight with Lana Lang
4) be a good reporter

Number 4 are the rearest of SA stories but boy are some of them good. And even Lois prtended to be a Jungle Queen to help Lana get her novel published so not all 100% shrewish but sheesh...

which is why "Superman  II" drives me NUTS!!!! :evil:
