This is the week that has many DC fans sharpening their pitchforks and lighting their torches. Among the many, many changes in DC's New 52 Reboot - de-agings, old characters returning, newer characters demoted, miracle healings for the crippled, pants/no pants, etc. - the Supermarriage of one Lois Lane and Clark Kent is no more.
Personally, I don't have a problem with that. If DC is going to wipe the slate clean (or at least "clean-ish") with this reboot, the Kent/Lane relationship will need to start over too. On the plus side, readers will get to witness the couple's inevitable courtship all over again.
Then again, I'm not a regular reader of the Super titles, so far be it for me to begrudge a fan their issues with getting invested in a couple of characters and their marriage, and have everything swept under the rug (Spider-Man readers nod their heads knowingly, and are ready to counsel their DC counterparts). I can appreciate both sides of the issue.
Now, as for Barbara Gordon being able to walk again...
But hey, comics. No one stays dead, married or in Arkham Asylum very long, right?
Anyway, I originally intended to submit this to the Covered blog, [link]
but after re-reading their submissions guideline, they don't do straight parody there. And this is straight, not-so-subtle parody. (God I hope Jim Lee and Dan Didio have great senses of humor). The original cover to Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane #80 is by the great Curt Swan and can be seen here: [link]
