Synopsis for "Lois Lane's Kiss of Death!"

This story is reprinted from Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #7.

Three conmen named James Paxton, Jed Blanton and Pete Malloy decide to falsify their own deaths. In order to allay suspicion, they engage upon an intricate plot in the hopes of perpetuating rumors of a "Death Curse".

Lois Lane is drawn into the web of intrigue, and through the criminals' manipulations, she begins to believe that she has a kiss of death. The first incident takes place shortly after Lois kisses a dog. The dog runs out into the street only to be run over by a passing car. Several citizens witness the event and begin to believe that Lois truly is curse.

She comes upon James Paxton, unaware of his involvement in the scheme, and kisses him. James falls dead away – or so he would have Lois believe. She then meets Pete Malloy and kisses him yielding the same results.

Superman shows up and promises to put an end to this strange mystery. Lois kisses him, and suddenly Superman begins to fall ill. Moments later, a second Superman arrives and exposes the first Superman as a third conman named Jed Blanton.

To her surprise, it's just a rabbit in a cage and she wonders how is survived without air holes, she is shocked to see it chew through its cage. She finds a card inside from a Professor Morris who claims to have created a formula to turn the average person into an Atlas. Going to visit the professor, she sees his formula at work when he performs a number of tests on another rabbit exposed to the serum by shooting it and dropping a 1 ton weight on it and causing no harm. To make sure that it has no ill effects on humans, the Professor gives Lois a vial of the chemical to give to Superman for testing.

Getting home she finds Lana Lang waiting outside her apartment. She tells Lois that her apartment is being painted and can't stand the smell and asks if she can stay the night at Lois' place. Lois accepts and tells Lana about the Atlas formula, leaving it in the bathroom. Lana sees this as an opportunity to win over Superman and later that evening goes to take a bath. While in the tub, Lana pours in the Atlas formula into the bath water behind Lois' back, and later shows off her newly acquired super-strength.

Synopsis for "Lois Lane's Secret Romance!"

This story is reprinted from Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #14.

When witnessing Superman putting on a super-feat in which he pulls a series of models on water skis, Lois Lane begins to lament that she will never get Superman to propose to her. Spying on Lois with her x-ray vision, Superman's cousin Supergirl decides to try and help Lois out from afar.

She starts by using her super-powers to make bill boards and other pictures of women appear to be Lois Lane whenever Superman (as Clark Kent) passes by, hoping that constantly "seeing" Lois might prompt him to propose. The plan works initially, and Superman arranges a romantic dinner with Lois aboard a ship, however in spite of Supergirl's best efforts to make sure the evening goes off as planned, Superman rushes off to save a car from being struck by a train. When he finally returns their dinner has gone cold and the night is ruined. The night is a bust when, trying to make the evening more romantic by blowing in clouds, Supergirl blows a little too hard and knocks Lois off the boat. When Superman rescues her, he realizes that if they were ever to get married, her life would be at constant risk and decides to leave.

Undaunted, Supergirl tries to make Superman jealous by making it appear as though Batman is courting Lois by sending her flowers and a Batwoman costume. However, the rejected Superman accepts the fact that Batman has won her affections (although in reality, Lois too was hoping Superman would get jealous) and leaves. As a final attempt, Supergirl tries whispers subliminal messages into Superman's ears as he sleeps telling him to propose. However, this also backfires when Superman proposes to every woman he sees. When the story hits the radio airwaves, Lois is furious when Superman comes and proposes to her as well.

Giving up, Supergirl returns to the orphanage as Linda Lee where she finds Clark Kent waiting for her. Clark reveals that he figured out what was going on when Supergirl made a mistake in making a Batwoman costume with a bat emblem on the back, and other clues revealing that she was the mastermind behind it all. He reveals that he was awake when she tried to use the post-hypnotic suggestion on him, and went along with it to also promote a new movie called "King Solomon's 1,000 Wives" and used the royalty money to donate to Linda's orphanage. With everything explained, Supergirl decides to stop trying to get involved in Superman's romance life.

Synopsis for "The Kryptonite Girl!"

This story is reprinted from Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #16.

Superman returns from outer space with a lead box, and delivers it to the Daily Planet. There he warns Lois and Jimmy not to open the box until he gets back. Sure enough, as soon as Superman is gone, Lois opens up the box and begins examining the objects inside, which turn out to be strange statues.

Later, when Lois is visiting her sister Lucy there is a brief blackout and much to Lois' surprise her eyes begin emitting a green glow. Fearing that she has been endowed with Kryptonite vision, Lois is horrified and assumes that it's from her exposure to the artifacts in the lead box. She confides in Lucy and explains what she has done an laments over the fact that she will never be able to see Superman again without causing him harm.

Having to meet with Superman in a short while, Lois comes up with a temporary solution: putting bandages over her eyes she takes Lucy's dog Duke out and explains to Superman that she is writing an article about what it's like to be blind. This covers things until Superman leaves and Lois then rushes off to an optometrist to see what they can do. After examining her eyes they realize that she has been endowed with Kryptonite vision much like Superman has x-ray vision, however she cannot turn hers off. In order to help her cope with this they make her a special pair of sunglasses that filter out the Kryptonite rays.

Sure enough Superman comes back for the objects in the lead box, and Lois is startled by his arrival and drops her sunglasses. Superman becomes angry that Lois' impulsiveness has led her to become cursed with Kryptonite vision and he angrily ends their relationship. When Lois' eyes continue to be a threat, Superman tells her to leave Metropolis in order to avoid getting killed by her lethal vision. Lois relocates to an Eskimo community in the North Pole where her green vision makes the local Eskimo's believe that she is a goddess. When Superman is seen flying by, Lois realizes that she could be close to Superman's Fortress of Solitude and becomes even more distressed.

The next day, Jimmy Olsen and Clark Kent arrive to give Lois an antidote created by Superman. Realizing that she can confirm her suspicions about Clark being Superman, she waits until she can train her Kryptonite vision on Clark. When it has no effect on Clark, she takes the antidote and her eyes stop glowing. Returning back to Metropolis, Lois sleeps happily while Clark muses about how he contrived the entire ruse to teach Lois another lesson in not being so impulsive and that the rays that came from her eyes were in reality, harmless.

Lois Lane suspects that sculptor Raphael Byron is really the Wrecker, a terrorist who is blowing up statues in the City Park. To investigate, she gets Jimmy Olsen to lend her some of Professor Potter's serum which makes him into Elastic Lad. However, he only gives her enough for ten feats, feeling that any more would be dangerous. As the costumed Elastic Lass, Lois does indeed expose Byron as the Wrecker, who is dynamiting the statues in the egotistical belief that his own creations should be featured in the park. But before she can do that, she performs nine other charitable feats, including entertaining the orphans at Midvale Orphanage--and getting a secret hand from Supergirl.

This story is reprinted from Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #16.

Perry White assigns Lois Lane and Clark Kent to pose as a butler and a maid for horror movie star Carlos Floyd and his new wife Edna Van Cleeve III, who have just relocated to Skull Island just outside of Metropolis in order to get a scoop about their married life. As the two work on the site, Lois begins finding evidence that Carlos Floyd is putting up the illusion that his wife is present when in actuality she is not.

Suspicious that Floyd must have killed his wife, Lois begins snooping around and finds a dummy of Floyd's wife and various other contraptions to perpetuate the illusion that Edna is still alive and present in the mansion. Deciding to confront Floyd with the truth, Lois decides to dress up as Edna to try and frighten a confession out of her.

Much to her surprise, it isn't Floyd who confronts her but Sidney Willis, Edna's lawyer. He pushes Lois off the balcony but she is rescued by Superman and has his picture snapped by Floyd. Floyd explains that his wife was murdered at sea by some unknown party, and that he contrived the whole ruse in order to catch the man responsible, as it turns out Willis intended to murder Edna in order to inherit her vast fortune. With Sidney captured and with evidence showing him "murdering Edna" again, Sidney confesses and is turned over to the authorities.

Afterward, Lois thanks Superman for helping her get the scoop of a lifetime.
