Same here.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Actually, you could explain that by saying that youth was what made Kal "soft." He was more idealistic as a kid, as many of us are.


So the Silver Age was his second childhood? Smiley

Good analogy.

There are two (of many) possible explanations for why there are multiple Lois Lanes.

First, and this one is potentially the most problematic: the Lois we see in the Golden Age is in reality, Lana Lang and in the comics they gave the wrong name as a result of "errors of reporting." This works well with Superboy; Superboy was Lana's girfriend from the 1920s, and later on went with him to Metropolis. It is LOIS, however, that is his girl from the 1950s to the 1980s. In the period between the 1950s and 1960s the pair would overlap, around the time of Lois Lane's comic. Provided she has good genetics, Lana would be in her forties or fifties, which is possible given good genetics and a healthy lifestyle. Perhaps Lana was youthened somehow come the 1970s and 1980s, which may account for why she was used so much more in the Wolfman years: with the vigor, energy, and passion of renewed youth she could be a much more credible rival to Lois Lane.

This could explain why, occasionally, Curt Swan and Wayne Boring's Superman is visibly shown as older man in the 1950s and 1960s with a receding hairline: as a result of the fact that he "ages" himself to fit in with his Lady Love, Lana.
