Lois is busy trying to prove that Superman is District Attorney David Prentice...

...while Lana already knows he's Clark Kent. She saw him change through her telescope, you see. Because Lana carried a telescope, of course. What television journalist worth her salt doesn't? But her broadcasting days will soon be over. One thing she does not want to do is tell the world Superman's secret. In fact, she begs Superman to use his super-hypnotism on her to wipe the knowledge from her memory. That's what lights certain... feelings in Superman.

Too bad for Lois, but Lana has won. Her wedding gift from Kal-El? A formula that gives her super-powers permanently! This way, she can't be harmed by his enemies. To add insult to injury (at least to the Lois fans who are buying her comic, after all), we're told the formula only works on blood-type A, and not Lois' blood-type O. Oh, and he also has to trash the shrine he keeps to Lois, obviously.

Where will they live? The Fortress of Solitude has the wrong NAME, and Clark's bachelor pad would blow his secret identity. So how about a floating estate with a garden of alien flowers?

However, all is not well, as a new gang in Metropolis has a huge supply of Kryptonite, which gives them the perfect defense to Superman. Lana, however, has gained all of his powers, but not his weakness to Green K, enabling him to save his bacon. So everyone's happy, right?

Oh, wait. This is the sixties.

Umm... Yeah.

Anyways, for a change of pace, Lana brings her super-husband to Africa to see her archeologist dad's newest finds. Except the artifacts seem to be made of Red K which, in this case, turn Superman into a rampaging villain.

I mean, who throws endangered species around like that? Only a rampaging villain, that's who. Super-Lana has to fight him for the requisite duration. He comes to just as he reaches Metropolis, but to his bewilderment, his wife is packing her bags. Be prepared for the worst, Clana shippers!

Another relationship destroyed because the woman made people sorry for the man. Don't be mightier than your man, ladies! Tough lessons!

(Presumably, Superman was dead by the end of the week from Kryptonite that Lana couldn't protect him from.)

I really love the craziness of this story. Especially the wtf expression s on the animals as Superman throws them.

Newsflash, Supes. How many husbands are their wife's hero?

Ahhh, the sixties and Silver Age silliness. A fun story simply because how attitudes have changed.

Ah, the Silver Age. I just picked up a bunch of random Supergirl stories from around the era, and... Seanbaby really wasn't kidding. Kryptonite was fucking EVERYWHERE, and the writers had no problem with hurling a Kryptonite meteor out of nowhere for cheap drama. Hell, in one story a ring of Kryptonite dust suddenly decided to surround Earth for no reason whatsoever.

It kind of makes you wonder whether Krypton hated being colonized by the Kryptonians and is actually seeking them out to kill them all off...

See, its not the omnipresence of Kryptonite that throws me. I mean I presume Kryptonite was a big planet, so it would have a lot of material for Kryptonite.

No, what throws me is how EVERY SINGLE PIECE of it somehow inevitably finds its way to Earth. All of it. Somehow finding its way to the same planet as the only person in the universe that can be hurt by it.

In another universe, Superman is truly invincible, and on some alien world there are a shit ton of green rocks that no one knows what to do with.

Marty Pasko actually addressed that. Jor-El's rocket was experimental. It opened a warp between Krypton and Earth---

But the warp stayed OPEN for a while, because the process was experimental.

And a lot of Kryptonite in Krypton's solar system went through the warp and fell on Earth. Much more than other worlds in the universe.

Ah, sixties DC Superman. Written by bitter women-haters for eight year old boys who were supposed to think that girls were icky.

Something tells me the Smallville writers were familiar with this story. I hope Lana found fulfillment with someone who appreciated her. (I know Lois is, was, and always will be endgame, especially as she was created first, but Lana touched my cold heart with her selfless sacrifice in "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?")

I am here for this ship, and the Sealand-style matrimonial home. Not happy with the ending, though. I guess it's nice that it leaves a Clark/Lois endgame open, but it's a drastic overreaction on Lana's part.
