The >sob< Lois Lane >gasp< Emotional Trainwreck >choke< Week #4

So yeah, Lois was quite the emotional roller coaster during the Silver Age, but not always.

Every once in a while you got a gem of a story like The Satanic Schemes of S.K.U.L.! that showed her using all of her investigative skills to go undercover into a satanic cult that was hell-bent on killing Superman.

Nary a >choke<, >sob<, >gulp<, or >gasp< is to be found...except for the title page.

Lois is a team player. She knew that you had to lay the melodrama on a little think every now and again to help sell the story, even if you had things well in had.
