    As Sam Lane's daughter, she's probably taught some self-defense classes, for other women (and likely men too!) on the Daily Planet staff.

    The TV version of Superman was supposed to be about 25 years old when he moved to Metropolis in the first episode (1952). He would thus have turned 18 in 1945. Some 945K men were drafted in 1945...

    The Selective Service Administration has a separate record system, apart from Social Security, birth certificates, adoption records, etc. Every male (whether a citizen or not!) in the USA was...

    Even if the Silver Age Clark Kent were too young to serve in WWII, he surely would have been old enough to be drafted during the Korean War, and of course the draft persisted throughout the 1950s and...

    I could swear I read a story back in the 1950s where Superman (not Clark Kent) was considered ineligible to be inducted into the Army, because the doctors wouldn't be able to give him the required...

    Doesn't Clark have the ability to control his heart, to some extent? He could have faked an irregular heartbeat and failed the physical exam. (He had to be rejected before induction, or else the...

    The USA military draft age has always been 18, even in peacetime. Men were eligible to enlist younger than that, with parental permission.

    Ignoring for the moment all the times that Lois has been Superwoman (and ignoring the Earth-3 Lois who's the evil super-powered version), the "regular" Lois was trained by Sam Kent (who never got the...

    While we're discussing actual people as well as fictional characters, we should at least mention psychologist William Moulton Marston, creator of Wonder Woman, and psychiatrist Nicholas P. Dallis,...

    Sure, things are bad in 2020, but 1969 was a pretty turbulent year in America too, and this song helped get us through it. It hit number 4 in the pop charts.

    She can be, but she isn't. That was not the character that Siegel and Shuster created, and it's not the character that has been written ever since. After all, the story can be that Clark is in fact...

    I suspect it's a lot simpler than that. The Golden Age Superman started out as a vigilante because it was the Golden Age. Comic strips (and comic books, which were mainly reprints of strips)...

    The Lois Lane comics book ran for 137 issues and 2 annuals, between 1958 and 1974. It was the third-best selling comic book published in 1962. If that's not the mark of a star, what is?

    Lois is an exceptional woman, which is why Superman is attracted to her. Lana was Clark's girl-next-door, but he considers Lois to be the ideal female (and he is friends with Wonder Woman!). As for...
