Quote1 Relax, Lois. Relax. You were beaten to it, that's all. Happens to the best reporters. Used to happen to me all the time. And you might as well take a good look at the fella who got the Superman story ahead of you. He's joined the Planet staff, as of today. Lois Lane, meet Clark Kent! Quote2

She finally has the scoop on Superman only to find out she was beaten to the headline by the new reporter, Clark Kent.

After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 1985-1986 maxiseries which completely reset the continuity of the entire DC Universe, all of DC's major characters and franchises needed to be updated to reflect the changes in the events of their lives. Multiple story arcs were put out to explain these rebooted versions of popular characters.
