Steve Lombard is the sports editor for the Daily Planet. A former pro football player, he often has clashes in personality with his more timid coworkers, like Clark Kent and Ron Troupe.

Steve Lombard quit college when he was 20 to accept a position for the Metropolis Sharks football team. When his knees were shattered in a car accident, he returned to college and got a degree in journalism, which he used.

Having left WGBS some time ago, Steve is now the sports editor for the Daily Planet in Metropolis. Lombard is known for his overbearing machismo and his tendency to belittle those whom he deems to be inferior to him. He particularly enjoys taunting ace reporter Clark Kent and has been known to admonish the editorials of fellow reporter Ron Troupe. During a staff meeting, Steve was leaning backwards in his chair when he made an unsavory comment towards Lois Lane. Clark surreptitiously used his heat vision to burn away one of the chair legs, forcing Steve to fall backwards onto the floor.[1]
