@modernww2fare: Yea and Superman originally had no problem drop a crook off a 20 story building. Characters change but Superman and Lois Lane have but the one thing that has never changed in all the years theough all the retcons and reboots is that Clark loves Lois. Maybe he isn't always open about it but its always there.
Lois is literally made to be Superman's true love. Lana was always meant as just a High School girl friend. Up until Smallville it was pretty well established that if forced to choose he will always pick Lois. In fact even now in the comics while he's in a relationship with Wonder Woman he's still got Lois on the brain because she is meant for him.
