"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
"They do have a connection — Superman and Lois— and that will never go away, but mostly I wanted to do a book where Lois had a big part because she inspires Superman so tremendously. She’s kind of his human counterpart. She’s always trying to do the right thing and pursue the truth even if there is great peril to herself. They have a connection that goes beyond the fact they want to hook-up or get together, which they do want to do, but also they have a deep admiration for each other and that’s part of what the story is about."
— Scott Snyder, writer of Superman Unchained
