Lee says that having a beautiful wife made it too easy for Superman, and they wanted to restore the idea that Superman can’t get everything that he wants.

Oh, FUCK THIS. FUCK THIS FOREVER.

You know why I like Superman, DC? You know who my favorite comic book character ever is? It's Lois fuckin' Lane, because she's *awesome* all on her own. She's a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, people give her respect because she demands and deserves it, her husband adores her and will never cheat on her and is also a superpowered boy scout at his other job, hell, even her IN-LAWS are cool. Fuck Superman-as-wish-fulfillment, Lois Lane is MY wish fulfillment, the character who inspires me, the character I admire and want to be like.

But DC doesn't care about all of that, now. Never mind that Lois has just as much history, is just as important to the Superman mythos as Clark/Superman is himself, is a character who has her own stories to tell. DC sees Lois as a Nice Thing For Clark to Have. Lois' relationships with other men aren't being portrayed as character development for her - they exist to stab Clark in the heart in a misguided attempt to make him 'sympathetic' and 'relatable.'

Great job at turning one of your legacy characters into a 'trophy,' DC!
