DC COMICS POWER COUPLE: Superman & Lois Lane
"Superman and Lois Lane refuse to tolerate bullies, and will always stand on the side of the oppressed. They believe in Truth and Justice with capital letters and fight for them every day. Lois does so without superpowers or a secret identity, as Clark hopes he would, even without his incredible gifts. Unlike everyone with power (physical, financial, political, intellectual) that Lois has ever encountered, Superman’s the only guy on Earth with enough power to save the world actually jumping at the chance to do so. Incorruptible power meets fearless mortal. Marriage ensues. They’re the best romance in all of superhero comics history and only make more sense the more you think about them." - Dean Trippe

Relish in a lovely picnic under vivid autumn maples of New England or a crisp morning stroll surrounded by golden aspens of the Mountain West. You can also count on exceptional fall colors along almost any section of the 2,184 mile (3,514 km), 14 state Appalachian National Scenic Trail from Georgia to Maine, but just about every state has some special place for you to discover the beauty of fall.Click here to see a list of places you can experience autumn in the great outdoors on any of the federal public lands!Photo of Rocky Mountain National Park by Steven Sawusch

Poehler and the show’s writers could have chosen to make Leslie comically strident, which in turn, would make her feminist stances outsized and rife for mockery. And that would be a real drag, truth be told. Instead (thankfully), Leslie’s feminism is marbleized into the show’s narrative, making her desire to advocate for gender equality, to encourage women to support one another, and to teach girls how to empower themselves, organic. There is nothing surprising about Leslie bringing her girlfriends together on February 13th for Galentine’s Day, a day to celebrate and honor the great gal pals in your life. She and her best friend Ann (played by Rashida Jones) are equals. They show up for one another and stick to the “ovaries before brovaries” code while other characterizations of female relationships inevitably show women pitted against one another in pursuit of boys, jobs, or other women. Even the show’s male figures like the human puppy dog, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) and Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) align themselves with feminist ideals. Andy’s foray into college finds himself drawn to a Woman’s Studies class; Ron acknowledges the influence of strong women upon him and finds his romantic match in a self-reliant, smart, successful woman played, unsurprisingly, by the badass Lucy Lawless.

Superman, more like Superfeminist!

I found a reprint of the original story from Action Comics #1 today, and I thought I should point out that over the course of the comic Superman 1) Saves an innocent girl from the electric chair 2) Saves a woman from her abusive husband 3) Saves Lois (LOIS!!!!!…

Done and done.

(Not pictured: “Butt window”, but trust me, it’s there.)

You have no idea how much this cheered me up just now.

I for one, think this is a major improvement. Look how empowered he is! And it’s relevant to the character as someone who is powered by the sun, he’d want to maximize the amount of sunlight he receives, right? It’s not like it makes sense for him to cover himself from chin to toe.
In fact, I think some strappy sandals might be an improvement.

strappy high heeled sandals would increase his height making him closer to the sun. and if wonderwoman can fight in heels it can’t be that hard, right?

SO EMPOWERING

Felt a dire need to contribute to the hilarity.

Now I can tell right away he’s a strong male character. Whew! No more confusion.
