New 52 Lois Lane is Dead

SWloisdies

They never wanted me  to exist!

Well, the DCE cabal finally got their wish.  No new 52 Lois Lane.

In a bait and switch, Lois Lane is not Superwoman (when she says it, it is in small print).  Lana Lang is Superwoman – when she says it, it’s in 3D red and yellow.  The DCE mobsters wanted a character written and they hired Phil Jimenez to write blahna (aka Lana) as Superwoman.  He’s giving her an extensive group of co-stars including her producer.  Why would an electric engineer need a producer?   blahna is a science reporter for the Daily Star.  Yea, that’s right, new 52 Lois was barely allowed to write anything (or appear in books).  BUT blahna gets a crew, a family (with a brother who had been military), and the supersuit.  blahna remains Lois Lite but now she’s gotten her own SERIES on the corpse of Lois Lane.

New 52 Lois Lane barely thrived under the current DCE regime.  It’s a wonder we got to see her at all.  In the main books, she was not allowed in Action Comics (Lois’s birthplace) during Pak’s stint.  That’s when electrical engineer blahna showed up.

Lois appeared in Action, Superman and Superboy #1s  of the new 52.  Remember there was a five year gap between Action and all the other #1s (except for JL which had the same 5 year gap between issues 6 and 7).  This means that any character development we could have seen was kept from us.  What was happening with Clark/Lois/Superman in that five year gap?   What story did Lois win her Pulitzer for?  Was it putting Lex in prison?

We were told at the beginning of the new 52, Superman would have no human tethers.  Meaning no Clark Kent, the Kents, Lois Lane, and the peeps at the DP.  Now it appears according to Superwoman, it was blahna who trained Clark to be Superman & not the Kents.  Even though they died when Clark was 18.   New 52 Kents were apparently loafers.   Let the neighborhood girl do it.

Remember Andy Diggle taking over Action after Morrison?  He wrote one book and Tony Daniels finished the 3 book arc.  Why did Diggle leave Action so quickly?  At New York Comic Con he was excited to write Lois.  Wanted her with Clark and not Mr. Cardboard JonathOn Carroll.  DCE told him to write the fauxmance (DCE’s idea of a power couple), so he left.  In a writers ‘vetting’ process, he had to submit a year’s worth of storyline.  So DCE was aware of Diggle’s love for the true mythology.  But as we know,  DCE has more dirty tricks than any con artist.

If you have read this blog previously, you know how Lois Lane’s solo book got sabotaged by removing her PR team a month before publication and didn’t bother to tell the creator.

Superman’s 75 anniversary was poorly planned.  If it wasn’t for Scott Snyder, there would be no Superman Unchained.  This had Lois Lane as a key character in the story.  Snyder had finished his work on time.  Artist/co-pub Jim Lee undermined the highly successful book by doing his cancel and re-solicit routine (he had perfected at Wildstorm) only publishing 9 books in 15 months.  At the beginning of the new 52, Lee said books would go out on time no matter what.  As you know that did not happen with a 75th anniversary celebration book featuring Lois Lane.

If you have a mind to, go back to my blog post regarding Jim Lee’s opinions on Lois Lane and Clark Kent excerpted from his website.  He doesn’t think Lois is hot enough.  Thinks Clark as the nurturer is wrong.  In other words, he doesn’t get Clark Kent or Lois Lane and so the new 52 was pretty much void of both characters.

Lois fans begged, cajoled, insisted new 52 Lois Lane get her due.  With Rebirth, DCE seemed to answer that call.  Here!  Here’s Lois on the cover of Superwoman!  As I stated in the opening paragraphs, this was another filthy deception.  A bait and switch.

As we have said many times in the new 52, Batman gets everything, Superman gets nothing.  Now it appears blahna gets everything (including many of Lois’ attributes) and the new 52 Lois Lane is dead.

Phil Jimenez is not to blame.  He was given the character by the DCE kingpins.  This is what he has to work with.  It’s a job.  He is a wonderful writer and he is developing a world – in my opinion – for the wrong character.  blahna has done nothing in the new 52 that Lois didn’t do better.  But new 52 Lois Lane has always been the DCE racketeers favorite punching bag.  (Literally, blahna suckerpunches Lois Lane before Rebirth.)  And therefore, her fans receive the blows also.   The bait and switch proved how thuggish the DCE mafia is and probably will remain so.  Was it vindictiveness because their power couple became known as the fauxmance? Are they that petty?

So the fight continues.  New 52 Lois died pretty much in the same manner as Loser new 52 Superman.  Her last words were about understanding and “Clark.”   (see panel above) So maybe there’s a glimmer of hope.  But in the meantime Lois fans are being asked to withstand the blahnafest after being deliberately blind sided at the end of Superwoman #1.

Personally, I don’t buy books with a dead Lois in them – especially by this regime.  I’m keeping my money.

Just remember there was a reason for Rebirth – the name ‘new 52’ became a scourge in comics.

Rebirth has brought back other couples: Green Arrow/Black Canary, Nightwing/Batgirl, Barry/Iris, Wally/Linda, Arthur/Mera (now engaged) – but there is no new 52 Clark and Lois.  They’re dead.

THE couple that built many ages of comics.  THE couple that was on all the Earths (one and two) during the Bronze age.  THE couple that every crisis was about. GONE.

The new 52 was a dismal failure and needed a Rebirth because the DCE ‘caretakers’ of billion dollar IPs ignored their legacy and reveled in destruction of characters and mythologies.  Change for change sake (and DCE execs prejudices) with a big dash of death culture.

While the rest of the DCU seems to be experiencing a Rebirth, Clark and Lois are dead and the mob at DCE thinks suckerpunching their fans is the right thing to do.

Let me know when the resurrection and revitalization of the greatest love story in print begins.  New 52/Rebirth is going to have to prove they can give the most iconic couple a great modern story.  So far they have utterly failed and disenfranchised fans AGAIN.

BTW, August 17th is Lois Lane’s birthday.  The bludgeoning continues.
