"Superman is about someone trying their best to save the world, one day at a time. And it’s about that person’s love for that one whose intellect and emotion and sheer bloody humanity completes him. It’s about Superman, and it’s about Lois and Clark. And that’s all there is. That is the spine. That must be protected, to the death." - Warren Ellis
Clark is “obsessed” with Lois and their initial attraction and admiration is formed on the basis of their writing rather than anything superficial like looks or powers.
"I like writing. It’s like, it doesn’t matter how strong or smart you are. Finding the right words is always a challenge." —Clark Kent, Action Comics v2 #6
