Synopsis:
None entered.

Reprinted/Collected in:
DC's Greatest Imaginary Stories (2005) TPB vol. 02

Notes:
The basic notion of Bruce Wayne as rival suitor is herein explored. A Batman/Lois liaison had been explored before, of course, but this is an early, rare example of the idea of Lois falling in love with someone she believed to be perfectly human. The basic narrative of the book would later be incorporated into the Emmy-award-winning "World's Finest" storyline in season 2 of Bruce Timm's Superman animated series. (It is not clear how directly this issue inspired the show's writing staff. However, remarks on the commentary to "Mxyzpixilated" on the Season 2 DVDs make it perfectly clear they were influenced to make their Mr. Mxyzptlk turn Lois into a horse in part because of issue #92, so it's not too much of a stretch to speculate they were influenced by this issue, too.)

Though an Elseworlds story, it's still a rare pre-modern hint that in order to get Superman, she's going to have to fall in love with Clark Kent. Note, too, that the the cover theme of Superman--or more accurately, Clark-as-Superman--expressing emotional vulnerability or a sense of "loss of Lois" is exceptionally unusual for this title. This title had often shown Lois pursued by this meta-human or that, but it took an ordinary mortal to really evoke some Super-angst.

We also see that, just as in the animated series, it was awfully tough for artists even of the caliber of Infantino and Adams to visually differentiate between Superman and Bruce Wayne.

Lucy Lane, Alfred Pennyworth, Professor Nichols, Aunt Harriet and Wonder Woman cameos.

Infantino provides cover pencils; Adams, the inks.
