Superman and Lois not together anymore....

#1 Posted by Wolfrazer (6502 posts) - - Show Bio

Does that bother anyone else? It seriously bothers me because watching the first Superman movie, then the next, next, next, watching the tv shows and all that. Always it has been SupermanXLois, and now at the relaunch they aren't together anymore? Thats like separating peanut butter and jelly....you shouldn't do that at all, it really bothers me that they aren't together anyone else feel the same?

They will be back together eventually, it's only a matter of time.

@Z3RO180:  Why can't they be together, and have her still be a strong character? Wouldn't be hard to have both things. Now not saying they should get married, just be together.

@Wolfrazer:cause they are trying to do something new if they were just going to end up puting them back to gether why bother rebooting them. Also i think both characters anchr eachor down.

@Z3RO180:  They don't have to anchor one another down, writers can change things now that they both are rebooted. But I guess its up to them weither or not they are going to do so.

They separated them so that they could make Superman more relatable to a younger audience, however in my opinion, disconnecting him from Lois also disconnects him from humanity. Ironically, this makes the character tougher to identify with, and in the end, harder to like. Lois was his tether to humanity, and it is pointless to break them apart when everyone knows they will get back together again in the end.

They got this same idea from Marvel when they broke up Peter and MJ in Spider-Man. How Superman being not married to Louis, relates him to a younger audience is beyond me.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Chloe Sullivan be in the DCnU and him get together with her. Yes I was a supporter of that pairing.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: If they were going to bring her in then the New 52 would be the perfect opportunity. I loved the Chloe/Clark relationship, but I never thought it should be romantic

@r3d_rob1n: Eh, to each his own. I just wanna see her as a reoccurring character at least if not a love interest.

I concur. Why must Superman be dating Lois Lane? Is she the only woman he can date?

Little known fact. In the Golden Age Lois was more like a sidekick than anything. She helped keep him up to date on disasters when he was Clark and he helped her out of rough spots as Superman, with no romantic feelings between the two. It was only during the Silver Age that she became the through herself into danger just to get Superman's attention.

I think it's a matter of what people are used to and the fact that they had one of the longest lasting marriages in comics up until the reboot, so people are having a hard time picturing him without Lois. I also site the cartoons and movies with keeping these Lois flames going. Don't get me wrong I like Lois, but Chloe won me over more in Smallville than Lois ever did in anything else.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: For me it was lana. Was never much into Clois as much as Clana.

@sethysquare: Never cared for Lana that much. She kinda reminded me too much of Mary Jane. The Smallville version was alright though.

I totally agree. Lois Lane was what made Superman more human.

No matter how god-like and extraordinary Superman was, Lois always brought him back down to earth. His love for humanity can be attributed a great deal to Lois, and he would be willing to sacrifice everything just to see her and to make sure she's safe. Their relationship was what made me admire Superman. His righteous morals and values can be reflected through his love for her.

I always feel great after reading a comic where Superman does something so amazing; such as defeating multiple doomsdays in space, almost dying, and saving the earth; but all he wants to do is go back and spend the rest of the day with his wife.

With so many player superheroes out there, isn't it a relief to know that there is atleast one hero that can stay with one woman and that their love can stand the test of time and multiverses? Superman and Lois Lane has become an iconic couple and I doubt the writers will keep them separated for good.

I do agree with both of you in a way.

But considering the fact that Superman was rebooted, its hard and/or strange to have him start the career being already in a relationship with Lois Lane. Besides, I feel like ever since Lois got married to Clark, she has been written alot more of a housewive than the investigative journalist that she is. I would prefer her to be written as a strong female character than a housewife. Not that marriage and career cant co-exist, but people just seemed to get more wrapped up in their love lives than her journalism. Plus the writers have not been writing her in that way ever since they got married.

That's true too. I think since it's just the beginning, they're going to give Superman and Lois Lane's relationship a bumpy start to bring more intrigue and give their love story more depth, but further in, they'll probably end up together. And when they do end up together, that'll bring a sigh of relief to many fans.

i hate the lois lane clark pairing i think he should fly solo and possibly marry maxima or wonderwoman some who he can have kids with plus this is a dude hu has the best power set possible u really telling me that hes just go find some chick and settle down i say they make him a bit of a playa hell lois is playin the field in new 52 so why cant superman this whole love her till the end if time crap is boring and it make superman lame

I don't think they split them up to appeal to younger readers. There's just more potential for good stories with them split up, Supes can have relationships with other characters for the first time in a while, and of course the retelling of how they end up together eventually could be very interesting.

Superman and Lois Lane are meant to be together, the will hopefully end up together again eventually, and Wonder Woman has the hots for Batman.

Lois Lane is the brand of Superman. I mean if they change who he dates or loves, it's like they're changing the brand. Plus, Superman will lose his originality. I don't mind the fact that Clark is currently dating Diana but they should not make it permanent. Just stick to 'Lois&Clark'. 'Diana&Clark' would sound rusty.

Also it would be seriously boring if we went into the new 52 and then just BAM yup every thing is how it was, Lois is with Clark, Barry is with Iris, Hal is with Carol, etc. etc.

...and Wonder Woman has the hots for Batman.

OH GOD NO!

Superman should be defined by humanity as a person from his own perspective not Lois, Lois ruins everything even the concept of the damsel of distress in a modern age where women are more competent without there male saviors makes the Lois and Clark dynamic more irrelevant since Supes is now with a women who can not only protect herself but stand on equal grounds, Plus I hate Lane's tsundere ness, without her there wouldn't be a bunch of them.

Lois can protect itself.
