The Man Of Steel 25th Birthday Celebration Week - The Intrepid Girl Reporter!

One of the more welcome changes that John Byrne brought to the Superman line with The Man Of Steel was an updating of the supporting cast. While Superman has arguably one of the best cast of players to interact with, they did need to be modernized just a bit.

Lois Lane benefited the most from the reboot, as she went from competent reporter to intrepid, persistent, confidant, reckless, and crusading journalist extraordinaire. Don't believe me? Then check out this panel...

That right there ain't your daddy's Lois Lane.

And while we're on the subject of Lois Lane...where's our Lois Lane comic book come September? I thought for sure after her co-starring role in Cornell's Action Comics (kind of) and her Flashpoint mini-series, that they were priming us for a new number one come September. Maybe with the second launch. I know that I would buy the hell out of a Lois Lane solo series.
