Why Lois for Superman? Kurt Busiek Answers:
What I like most about it is the contrast — both of them are dedicated  to truth and justice, but she’s very urban, very city-sophisticated,  sharp-tongued and sarcastic, and he’s very earnest and solid and  affable. They fit together well, and play off one another nicely. (Comic Bloc Forum, 7 November 2006)I like Lois. I like her as a  character, and I like her in her role as part of the Superman cast. I  think it’s a very good idea, for the themes and context of the series  for Superman to be romantically attached to an ordinary human. An  extraordinary human, to be sure, but a regular, normal-type person, who  grounds him in his human identity and connects him to the adopted world  he loves so much. I think having Superman involved with a superhuman  like Wonder Woman is a fine idea for what used to be called “Imaginary  Stories,” and now are called “Elseworlds,” like Kingdom Come,  where Clark and Diana did, as I recall, get married and have a baby. But  I don’t think it’s a good idea for the ongoing series, because it  removes Superman from needing to be connected to ordinary people,  emphasizes the “super” part at the cost of the “man” part. I think both  of those aspects should be important to the Superman series, and Lois,  Ma, Jimmy, Perry and others are vital to the series for that reason. (Busiek.com, 21 April 2010)
