There's no question about it; Flashpoint's offshoot titles are doing exceedingly well. Not only are they selling better than many retailers anticipated, but they have actually been quite good. Many of the new interpretations of familiar characters have been completely altered- which is what's making these stories so exciting. Earlier today, DC revealed their preview to Flashpoint: Lois Lane and the Resistance, giving CBR the preview. What will happen to Lois Lane when she's caught in the midst of a war between the Atlanteans and the Amazons? And why the decision to give Lois the spotlight in her own three issue mini series?

“Lois is a great character – one of the rare iconic characters in comics who have no powers. This series makes her the eyes on the ground in the middle of war between SUPER superpowers,” writer Dan Abnett told us. “Should a reporter cross the line and get involved the story? And if they do, can they make a real difference when the other players are demi-god superheroes?”
It's often the job of the reporter to cross between the lines and put themselves in danger in order to bring the full, real story to the people- so it's pretty cool to see Lois do this in her very own Flashpoint mini series. It's also great to finally see Lois Lane receive recognition and be given her own book where she can independently flex her muscles without being a prop for Superman- which is usually what ends up happening.
With the official solicits for the #1 issues of Action Comics and Superman due to hit stores this fall as part of DC's revamp, there has been no mention of Lois Lane. Many readers have been speculating about Lois Lane's future, whether she and Superman will be together and whether or not she will have a place in the revamped DCU at all. Between her absence from the recent Superman story arc, 'Grounded' and the rumors of DC's plans to split Lois Lane and Superman, what does Lois' future hold? DC Co-Publisher Dan Didio recently stated in an interview with NBC that the relationship between Lois and Clark is being "reexamined."
“Let’s just say it's being reexamined,” says Didio, “because it's something that I think is something that is so valuable to the character's story that you really want to explore all facets of it. Not just as it exists currently.”
While this in no way explains what the future holds for Lois Lane, it's safe to say that based on what Dan Didio has to say, things will likely not stay the same for the heralded reporter. Even though we don't know what will happen to Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Lois Lane, the most well respected journalist in all of the DC Universe, at least it's nice to enjoy her in her very own Flashpoint mini-series; something I think a lot of fans can appreciate. What do you think of the preview to Flashpoint: Lois Lane and the Resistance? Are you looking forward to the revamp of the DCU, and if so, what do you want to see happen to Superman and Lois Lane?
