    Interesting insight on his work. No matter what a person believes, God or gods will always be a part of story telling, and Whedon, whether or not he believes in one, does a good job of still exploring what others believe.

    Although I’m not as big a fan of Mary Jane as I am of Lois, I think that Mary Jane does deserve some credit as well. All of the superheroes’ significant others deserve some.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! And I’ve never heard of that poem, but I can’t wait to read it. I love the points you made, also. Thanks for sharing!

    Very good point about Mary Jane. I think what’s interesting, concerning these two characters is their connections with their superhero husbands, and how they deal with the threats they’ll face. And the points that you made that they discuss with Spidey-absent partner, ramifications-any partner of a superhero will face that, and they each deserve credit, but I wanted to focus on Lois for now because of the negative light she’s usually put in.

    Yes, she seems to be one of the few women on the planet who can take care of all the craziness that comes with being Superman’s girl.

    I didn’t really reference any other media version of Lois, only focusing on the comics. Since they’re the source material, I thought it would be best to do that. It would be interesting though to compare the current film adaptation of Lois Lane to those before her in all forms TV, film, comics, etc.

    It would be. Something that I’ve thought about is Hollywood’s hesitancy in making a super heroine film, although considering the past attempts I can see why. I think they need to try again, though. Thank you for reading this!
