Lois Lane, for anyone who has avoided pop culture for the last fifty years, is the main love of Superman. She has been more or less a constant presence in comic books for the last 70 years, making her one of the most published character of all time. She has appeared in movies, live action and cartoon shows, and even had her own comic book series. For a woman without superpowers, she is one of the well-known comic book characters of all time.
To be honest, last Sunday I saw Gail Simone (writer of two of my favorite series, Birds of Prey and Secret Six) post the comment saying "ME ME ME" about wanting to write the series. Detective Comics' Greg Rucka and The Legion of Superheroes' Phil Jimenez also threw their hat into the ring.
I personally love it when fans take it to a company and say, "We want this! Please!" In fact, in comic book publishing, fans have frequently gotten their way in this manner. Marvel's Spider-Girl, a spin-off series of a random issue of What If? featuring May Parker, the alternate future daughter of Spider-Man, remained in print for years and kept coming back based on fan demand and letter-writing campaigns. Spider-Girl went on to last over 125 issues - or, in other words, over 10 years of near continual publication.
I personally would love to see DC Comics, who seemed to smile and nod and acknowledge the surprising movement but didn't commit to even thinking about it, take Lois Lane on and see what happens. They've got a built-in publicity machine already built in with Twitter user @loislaneverse, and what's better than fan-based, free publicity? And frankly, if Simone and Jimenez did the series, I'd be there.
And I'm not even that big of a fan of Lois. Can we get a fan-based proposal for a Dazzler/Northstar series, too?
