1938 didn't have many strong confident women holding down the same occupation as a man (and doing a better at it) in real life. Having it in a comic was pretty cool.

That Lois mainly became nothing but a romantic interest after WWII doesn't erase the fact that before then, she empowered feminism before there was feminism.


Agreed.

But Superman's still better :wink:

And he's more important than Lois Lane, IMO.

I think we should introduce DC Women Kicking Ass to Zechs. It sounds like an eventful date.

Never said he wasn't :groucho:

But what I want to know is if anyone celebrated Sticky-Mitt Stimson's 75th b-day? (he was also in Action #1 as well as Zatarra, Tex Thompson & others)

Spare a thought for Jimmy Olsen, whose first appearance was on a fucking radio serial.

Yeah that doesn't seem a frenzy at all. I'm not trying to say that to belittle you but 49 people on your blog don't = people giving a shit.

Well, they seem to be giving him shit on his blog, so yeah, it might be a big deal to him.

But to throw it out like it's a national tragedy, arguing Lois Lane is more important is sort of like arguing which testicle is more important. Really I would just be happy something I wrote was being seen by 49 people.

I'm not saying it's a tragedy, at all. It just annoyed me.

And if it's a pointless argument as you say, we might as well shut down this website, because then all comics arguments are pointless.

Really I do not think this thread had an arguments, that is until now, but really asking a valid question based on a reaction of total strangers.
