Synopsis for "The Snoopiest Girl in History!"

Lois Lane snooped around Dr Evans' house to get the story on a time machine, outsmarted Superman, and ended up catapulted back in time to the Golden Age of Greece.

Lois appeared in front of Epiphemeus, and he proposed marriage, as he thought Lois was a gift from the Gods. Sure that Superman would find her, Lois accepted and visited Epiphemeus' brother, Prometheus. Part of the Greek wedding custom would be for her groom to choose a new name for Lois.

The brothers were scientists, and allowed Lois to explore their estate where her curiosity unleashed hybrid monsters and set the room on fire. An unlocked box marked "Not to be opened by anyone! Beware!" attracted Lois' curiosity and she, of course, opened it and released a plague of flies. Despite this, Epiphemeus would not punish her and still desired marriage.

After having searched for thousands of years, Superman found her and returned her to the present. Lois' film was ruined by a radioactive meteor, so her only proof was the wedding ring, in which was engraved "Epiphemeus to Pandora." Superman laughed, as Lois had become the Pandora of legendm when she opened the box of all evils.

Synopsis for "Lois Lane, Super-Telepath!"

Lois Lane poses as "Miss Telepath", a girl with supposed psychic powers, in a plot to trap gang boss "Long Odds" Larkin and his mob. Jimmy Olsen has lent her his Superman signal watch. But unknown to them both, Superman is in space at the time and cannot hear its signal. Captured by Larkin, Lois is forced to "psychically" detect secrets that will aid his robberies...and every one of them comes out correct! Superman finally returns from space and rescues her. When it is determined that neither Supergirl, Lori Lemaris, Comet, or a time-traveling Saturn Girl was helping her, Superman and Lois determine that Lois merely made four lucky guesses in a row...with odds of 326,454,839,047 to 1 against her doing so.

Synopsis for "Lois Lane's Super Gamble"

Lana Lang interviewed Superman and it was obvious to a jealous Lois that Lana had made a play for him. The girls argued over Superman, and to teach them a lesson, he posed as "Ideal-Man", an alien super-hero from the Planet Knarp. Lois manipulated the situation so that "Ideal-Man" and Lana fell in love, only to find out at the altar that "Ideal-Man" and Superman were one and the same. He would not marry Lana, and Lois was horrified that she had almost lost her chance with Superman. Despite the cruel prank, both continued to love Superman.

Notes

  • In older versions of the Prometheus myth; Pandora was sent with her Jar of evils, by Zeus to be Prometheus' wife. But he rejected her and she married his brother, Epiphemeus.[1]
  • The mutagenic meteorite collected by Prometheus had similar properties to Quixium.
  • "Lois Lane, Super-Telepath!" was reprinted in Superman Family #168.
  • In "Lois Lane's Super Gamble", Superman made up that Ideal-Man was from Planet "Knarp", which is "prank" spelled backwards.
