What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!

Batman has gotten involved with many strange women over the years. But none has been as delightfully strange as Patricia Powell, Policewoman...

The Mighty Marvel Superhero's Cookbook!

Yes.

Winter (or Summer, for you Australians and nearby) holidays are, I think everyone can agree, are a time for food. Delicious food.

And so, my gift to you is this: Food, and cooking, the Marvel way. Have you ever wondered what type of cake Hulk likes best? Thor's feelings about cabbage or what sort of finger food might be available in you were asked over to T'Challa's place? Do you pine to know the best way to cook a meatball if Captain America's in town? Or Tony's second favourite type of engineering?

As an avid Batman fan, I do think that there are several reasons why the Bat-verse stands so high among readers and is a source for so many great stories, and while the most important reason is up to everyone's own opinion, I think that it is hard to argue that one of the most important reasons isn't the supporting cast, their relationships with each other and the very world they inhabit. They all share a depth and complexity that is unfortunately relatively rare in such abundance in comic books and perhaps even more importantly, they can all be wrong in something. Especially Batman, as he has often been. They are flawed individuals, who just struggle to overcome those flaws and just do the right thing, not always succeeding, and to me makes them so relatable and even more heroic to me.
