-- Lois Lane src

Early Years

Lois Lane is the nosy, irascible and opinionated Chloe Sullivan's cousin and Clark Kent's love interest and eventually fiancée and wife (although she did enjoy brief romances with a blond-haired swimmer named Arthur Curry, and with the CEO of Queen Industries, Oliver Queen).

At the beginning she had no desire at all to pursue a field in journalism and had a kind of sibling-like rivalry with Clark, finding pleasure in needling him into fits of nervousness.

Later, Lois started to write for The Metropolis Inquisitor, lately, the newest Editor In Chief of the Daily Planet, Grant Gabriel, offered Lois Lane a job, and she took it. When Chloe Sullivan left the bullpen, Clark Kent took her desk encouraged by Lois. They began working side by side at the Daily Planet, exploring new feelings in their relationship, getting married after Superman revealed his existence to the world.

Justice League

After Superman's public career started out, Lois became a valuable insider and asset for the burgeoning super-team. She was the one discovered Tess Mercer's soul was stuck inside Lex Luthor's brain, which allowed the team rescue her and provide her with a robotical body. When Superman and Batman worked together to solve a case, Lois became friends with Barbara Gordon (Nightwing).
