    I would point out here that the idea that Lois can’t both be “free” and be married to the man she has loved for 80 years is a strain of the exact sexism we are talking about though.

    This is a...

    I was the one that said that Siegel once said that he felt Lois couldnít work as a reporter if she got married. I distinctly remember reading it years ago in an interview with the Superman homepage....

    Yeah, color me confused here too about Lois’s age.

    Amy Adams is 45 years old and regularly shows up women half her age in terms of her appearance. Not to be crude but her cleavage alone is...

    You need to put Jerry Siegel’s words in the context and time from which they were shared.

    Siegel lived during an era where women were not really socially allowed to be both “Career gals” and...

    Ok I can’t believe I’m about to do this but I’m going to defend Bendis for a minute: I’m not entirely convinced this was his idea or his fault.

    I’m guessing he’s not really around which ....is unfortunate.

    And denying the misogyny that exists towards Lois and the marriage coupled with the reality that Clark being queer doesn’t automatically mean that he’s not married to her is also erasure

    Thank you. Exactly this. I refuse to be accused of something I absolutely did not say.

    An argument for Superman being allowed to be canonically portrayed as queer or an entirely different convo,...

    I feel like this exact convo is happening in literally 3 other threads and, to be honest, it’s starting to feel both tiresome and frustrating to have to re-litigate the exact same arguments over and...

    Nice to see Jody Houser as part of the team too. Great to have a female writer in there for once as a contributor.

    Yes, when I think of Frank Miller’s treatment of Wonder Woman or any woman really “dignified and correct manner” are absolutely the words that come to mind. ��

    I mean, I know that saying ďIíve been burned so much worse beforeĒ feels like faint praise. LOL.

    But I guess thatís where Iím at. I survived the new 52 treating Lois Lane like absolute trash...

    They definitely shouldn’t have been kissing in public (and then obviously spending the night together directly after) but if one is being honest...historically speaking Lois and Superman have a...

    Is this what I want? No. Would this be the story I would tell? Nope. Do I think this will be permanent? Nope. But, as Iíve said previously when this was first speculated, Iím fairly zen about...

    The crazy part is that this ::does:: read like it was edited. It feels like there are huge chunks of story missing which makes you wonder if his initial ideas for the women were even worse and then...

    Oh my goshóno worries! I didnít think you were mean at all. I was just sharing a different POV and why some of these convos take on a deeper meaning for someone like me.

    Yup. And the “I’ll show them all scene” completely fails to be any kind of genuine exploration of Clark feeling frustrated that he can’t show his true self to Lois because...umm...in this garbage...

    Every scene with Wonder Woman or Lois on page was embarrassing. Miller is terrible at writing and understanding women. He hasn’t changed at all.

    DC should be embarrassed to have published this.
