Clois Is My Fairytale

@CloisLover on twitter. Let's see, I'm a comic obsessed fan-girl. People have asked me before; Batman or Superman. I say don't let me pick between the ying and yang of my life. But I would have to say that my spirit animal is LOIS LANE. I'M A HUGE LOIS FAN! I do have to admit that I HAVE THE HUGEST CRUSH ON SUPERMAN! Team CLOIS 110%! I think Lois Lane and Superman were made for each other. They are soul-mates and one of my very first ships, and OTPs. There is a lot of love for this iconic couple. They are, to me, two halves and without each other they can never be whole, or complete. I think my Clois was personified in Tom Welling's Clark and Erica Durance's Lois. To me, they made me love and adore Clois.

But that takes nothing away from the marvelous Dean Cain & Teri Hatcher, George Reeves and Noel Neill, Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder, and Henry Cavill and Amy Adams. Well let's just say that where there is Clois, there is hot chemistry.

Some love me, some hate me. But they never ignore me. I make artwork, I reblog cool stuff, I post even cooler stufff. I also enjoy posting Vampire Diaries, Castle, Disney, and other random stuff. Like I said, I am a huge shipper of Superman and Lois Lane or Clark Kent and Lois Lane, so yeah on this blog you will find a lot of #TeamClois posts.

I’m surprised no one else seems to have noticed this connection yet.
The panel on the right is from another Jim Lee book “Superman: For Tomorrow,” in which Lois Lane along with a million other people mysteriously disappear while Superman’s distracted, and Superman has to spend a year without her, fearing she may have been killed, only to be triumphantly reunited after he discovers the truth of the disappearance.
The page on the Left is New52 Superman making out with Wonder Woman in the exact same pose, just to rub it in our faces that Lois and Clark are no longer together.



Maybe it’s just me, but these pictures side-by-side kind of sum up the differences between the old and new DCU for me. They are both by the same artist, I know, and there are lots of similarities, of course, but when you compare the two, I find the old one superior in just about every single way. 
I mean, don’t get me wrong, as a piece of comic art, the newer picture is fine. Indeed, I assume that in many technical aspects it’s the better piece. The line is tighter. The colour effects are vibrant. Clark seem to be a little more in proportion. But, to me at least, it’s missing… something. Maybe it’s in the way they are posed, with ramrod correct posture, like impossibly perfect manikins but with no nuance or humanity. Maybe it’s in the way they seem to only be touching where they have to touch, like two models who can’t stand each other, internally pleading for the photographer to call an end to the shoot. Maybe it’s in the rigidly enforced “sexiness” of the now compulsory butt-tilt/hip pivot of Wonder Woman’s. I don’t know, but I do know that it just seems so… superficial. All flash and no substance, everything done to present a sexy and dramatic picture, but the end result completely lacking in passion or heart. 
And then I look at the older picture. It’s rougher, no doubt. The colours don’t pop in quite the same way. Superman looks if anything, even more wooden and staid. But there is a something there. It’s in Lois, and the way she looks like a person. It’s in the life and movement and happiness in every line of her. It’s in the little human details, like one of her shoes falling away. It’s in the surprise in her expression and in those sweet, simple, and slightly hoaky words of Clark’s, that completely undercut his visual rigidity: “A man. I’m a man who can fly. But it’s this woman that sweeps me off my feet.” I mean, just look at those few sentences again. They are the completely unembellished and adorkably cheesy words of a selfless man, eternally entranced and utterly grateful to the woman he loves. It’s vintage Clark Kent and Lois Lane and there was, is, and never will be anything better than that.
I don’t know. It just leaves me feeling so empty when I contemplate how little heart there is left in the canon DCU any more. Maybe the old DCU’s continuity was discouraging to new readers. I mean, it wasn’t to me, (I love it, to be quite honest,) but I don’t claim to speak for everyone. But there wasn’t a single character in that universe who didn’t matter to someone. Now though, in the rush to prune “unneeded” characters and make those left more iconic and archetypal, we’ve lost so much, in characterisation, in depth, in diversity, in emotional resonance, in… You name it! *sighs* I’m starting to think the DCnU slogan should have been something like this: 
“The New DCU: An inferior copy of the original in every single way.”

Just a reminder that that original “image” was a copy of something far superior to begin with. Every word of this is still true.
