Lucille Tompkins (née Lucille Lane) is the younger sister of reporter Lois Lane and the mother of Lois's troublesome niece, Susie.

She was Lois's matron of honor at her wedding to Clark Kent.

  • Lucile Lane first appeared, unnamed, in Action Comics #98 (as Susie Tompkins's mother). She was named Lucille in Action Comics #484 as a variation of the name of her Earth-One counterpart Lucy Lane.
  • This version of Lucy/Lucille Lane, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths event and later restored following the rebirth of the infinite Multiverse during the Dark Crisis of 2022-2023. Even though other versions of the character may have appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
