Yeesh, I didn't mention The Outhouse in the article at all. It's on my personal blog and not an op/ed on here for a reason.

Staff page, past articles you have had done on your blog linking to OH. All in all traceable.

Inaccurately to boot. Some posters certainly have issues with that site, but the majority of the comments on this thread have either been neutral or disagree with the premise of Punchy's blog post. Victorian Squid even had some nice things to say about their Lois Lane coverage (which I have to echo myself).

Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive about this stuff! Punchy was tweaked because a couple of people had the gall to celebrate the anniversary of Lois Lane's creation rather than Superman's (I have seen no evidence that anyone has claimed that she is or was a more important character than him), his distractors totally lost their shit over what was really a pretty silly blog post, and now we're being attacked based on the comments of a couple of posters despite the fact that more of the posters here seem to agree with DCWKA.

Of course she is. How boringly predictable some people truly are.

No matter what good we do she'll always think of the one lone article which we were joking and fully blame us all for things that we are not.

Going back a bit, but...

Victorian Squid wrote:I never would have checked out their site or coverage if not for Shitlord's internet-wide exposure as a creep and a misogynist like this, but actually I think their coverage of 75 years of Lois Lane and the interviews they got with creators about it is pretty cool. They did a good job, and there are plenty of other sites talking up the angle with Pajama Man. Particularly I was struck by how many comics creators look to Margot Kidder in the first 2 Superman films as their first real memory of Lois Lane.

You know, I never liked Margot Kidder's portrayal of Lois Lane (but then, I really don't like the Superman movies that much anyway). Lois' DCAU portrayal has always been my favorite.

Agreed. I'm not sure any live-action film or TV show has actually got Lois right yet - certainly Teri Hatcher was as bad as Kidder.

I think the best live-action Lois may actually be the one from Smallville, she was pretty good.
