Yes, you read that right. In Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane #55, it seems that Superman and Supergirl have children together. Supergirl then proceeds to freeze Lois in a box “for a thousand years”. But you don’t care about that part, do you? You probably want to know the same thing I was wondering: Did Superman really sleep with his cousin?
Well.. no. These older comics tended to do this gimmick where they would basically lie on the front cover about something, and then come up with a ridiculous explanation to justify the lie. It turns out, Supergirl came in contact with red kryptonite, which causes Superman and Supergirl to have “unexpected effects”. In this case, the effect was for Supergirl to treat Lois like crap and make her jealous. And the kids themselves? Robots that Supergirl made. Yes, made. And to get Superman to play along with the story? Super-hypnotism. Yep.
This issue of Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane has three stories in it. Back then, the 12 cent price tag was some deal, I imagine. There is an advertisement in this comic for Silly Puddy. Remember that stuff? I used to use it to make Frankenstein-like creatures out of characters I would find in the Sunday comics strips.
This issue of Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane 55 is interesting enough to own, because what if Superman and Supergirl had kids? It is a question I used to ask myself when I was younger. Cousin or not, are you going to let your race just die? Comment.
