"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
Lois is the human soul of Superman’s increasingly superhuman world. In a universe that only widens, only becomes more extraterrestrial, metahuman, parahuman, superhuman, she is the “merely” human center of conviction, compassion and resolve that anchors our world — but what a wonderful thing humanity seems to be, through her.
