|Bios - Lois Lane
|Voiced By: Dana Delaney
First Appearance: "Last Son of Krypton"
Position: Newspaper Writer, Friend of Clark Kent
Bio: Lois Lane is the Daily Planet's star reporter. She's a
savvy, stubborn, sly newswoman who doesn't suffer fools gladly. She's
also a knockout, but you'd do well to resist telling her that. Lois
wants to be appreciated solely for her brains and hard work. As a
reporter she's a complete pro, never biasing her stories or slinging
mud. Though she takes big (some might even say outrageous) risks while
getting a story, they're always calculated.
She does not blunder stupidly into dangerous situations, she's well
aware of the hazards before she goes in. Owing to his super powers,
Clark will often spot danger that no one else can see and caution her to
watch herself. She takes his warnings as his attempt to sabotage her and
get the story for himself. She has a like/hate relationship with Clark,
always referring to him as "Kent", unless she wants something out of him
and only then does she call him "Clark". Deep inside she does have a bit
of affection for him, but their rivalry has her keeping him at arm's
length, And even if they weren't rivals, she'd still find him a stiff,
by-the-books kinda guy.
Lois has sources all over Metropolis, from high society industrialists
to the lovable Hobb's Bay fisherman Bibbo. Opinionated and quick with a
quip among the mostly male members of the Planet reporting staff, Lois
can talk rings around most men, her boss Perry White included. There's
only one man who leaves her at a loss for words: Superman and she could
kick herself for it. A million available men in Metropolis and she falls
for an alien.
But then, Lois has always had an attraction for danger. She always takes
the toughest assignment and would gladly infiltrate an arch-villain's
lair if it meant getting a scoop. Her affinity for danger extends into
her personal life as well. Lois has always liked edgy, mysterious men
who played by their own rules. She even dated Lex Luthor for a while.
But as soon as she learned Lex wanted her to write some pro-Lex Corp
pieces for the Planet, she dropped him faster than Superman would drop a
hunk of Kryptonite.
Being a reporter, Lois can't but help be a little suspicious of
Superman. Is he for real? Where did he come from? Is he really as good
as he seems? What does he really want here on Earth? There are a
thousand questions she wants to ask him and if she ever got that
interview, her Pulitzer prize would be assured. Although Lois will
initially take a skeptical, even cynical attitude toward Superman, the
more she'll see him risking his life to help others the more she'll be
convinced that he is "for real". She can't help but feel attracted to
She's always believed that no one ever gives anything away for free, but
Superman's selflessness is gradually changing her mind.
Bio (Cartoon Network): Lois Lane is the Daily Planet's top
reporter. She and Clark are always trying to scoop each other for the
best stories. The very stubborn and crafty Lois regards Clark as a
somewhat rigid goody-two-shoes. Yet she must admit that Clark is a darn
good journalist. For this reason, she also treats him with the respect
that any worthy rival is due. Lois employs equal combinations of daring
and cunning to get her stories, stopping at almost nothing to get
exactly what she wants. She is tough and opinionated and generally
regarded as one of the best in the biz. Lois is especially attracted to
Superman. The mysterious alien outsider gets this reporter's blood
racing. What's his story? What does he want? And who is the man behind
the cape? Lois is determined to find out. Of course, there may be a
more, shall we say, primal source of Lois' fixation with Superman.
