Lucy Lane grew up on the Lane family farm in Pittsdale, Iowa. Always living under the shadow of her more popular sister, Lois, Lucy often found herself involved in Lois' affairs. Upon visiting Metropolis, she met cub reporter Jimmy Olsen, and the two became romantically involved with one another. Lucy obtained a job as a flight attendant, and moved to Metropolis (although her job kept her out of town often).
After several years of on and off dating, Olsen broke up with Lucy.  Lucy moved out of Metropolis.
