Metropolis … Or Not Interested, Thanks

DC & WB have announced their intent to do a Superman prequel series centered around Lois and Lex called Metropolis. I guess they like what Gotham has been doing and want more of that.

Me? I love Superman and his mythos but have always considered Lois Lane as the least interesting character in his supporting cast. Regardless of what they do with her, she ultimately remains the damsel in distress relying on Superman to pull her out danger and I find that stunningly dull. There are only so many times you can have one of her investigations put her in dire mortal danger only for Kal to blur in and rescue her. This was fine for storytelling in an earlier age, but now … now, there needs to be more.

Unfortunately, there really isn’t more you can do with her. I’m tired of her … but truthfully, I’m probably more tired of her fans…
