“Who Is Superwoman?” part one! Lois Lane takes flight! Now powered up with the abilities of Superman, Lois pledges to carry on the super-legacy as Superwoman! There’s only one problem: Lois’ new powers are killing her, and neither she nor her friend and confidant Lana Lang know what to do about it. Will Lois even survive long enough to learn the deadly secret of Ultra Woman?
A woman? With powers? Pish tosh! That would be a Wonder: some "Super" girl to use her Power, like she's the Star of the show! Women ought to play one of two roles in comic book stories: either damsels in distress, or as the ugly, platonic, super-smart best friend for a boy superhero. What am I saying?! "Boy" superhero? I mean just plain old regular superhero, thank you very much! I mean, what is next, a super-powered gorilla? A flying cat? An inordinately strong animated piece of protoplasm??? Reel it in comic books, we don't necessarily need all of our heroes to be white or straight, but they should all have wangs dangling between their legs! If you need reference, check the internets!
