Another one page glimpse of "married life" for Lois & Clark in the Silver Age. 

I present: Lois as dutiful housewife. Seriously.

From Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane #19



Wow. Just... wow.

90's (and current) Lois would incinerate this imposter on sight.

Ok, i can see a couple problems here . . .
1. I pretty sure that x-rays can't cook anything. I mean, I'm pretty sure anyway.
2. If those burgers were indeed cooked by x-rays, then they are now cancer burgers - way to go superman!

1) Yes they can, lethal X-Ray burns were being reported back in the 1920's

2) They'd be as likely to be anti-cancer burgers since they've just super-extreme radiotherapy, no?

I still wouldn't eat those burgers mind you... at least not until Superman can tell the different between his X-Ray and HEAT vision, which would be a darnisght more obvious.

Oh, that was just a silver age thing- it actually took a little while for Superman's heat vision to become a distinct power; for some time, it was just "the heat from his x-ray vision." Granted, I don't know how much x-rays work that way- I think it's possible to burn something with intense enough x-rays, but it was kind of stupid.

"Tonight, Superman and Lois are being played by Don and Betty Draper ..."

Oh, those women, they're so shallow and silly!

Well, at least this shows Supes actually cares about her, and isn't locking her up in his fortress every day.

.. These stories always leave me so speechless. (And yet I'm always sort of fond of the art.)

I wonder if Weisinger had a wife? If she did, what a life she must have led...

If HE did, that is. Freudian slip.
