Synopsis for Lois Lane: "Unhappy Anniversary"

For the past sixteen years, while raising her (non-super-powered) daughter Laura with husband Clark (Superman) Kent, Lois has been working as a columnist instead of an investigative reporter. Today, on her weeding anniversary, she plans to resume working as a reporter, but then she gets (unspecified) news from her doctor which may change those plans. But before she can process the news, Lois discovers the dead body of her artist friend David Angel, and also discovers that Angel has sculpted/programmed a hologram that shows that he knew that Clark Kent is Superman! Lois hides the hologram, and then solves the murder, which also leads her to discover that the hologram that seemingly revealed Clark's secret was really just an accidental merging of two separate hologram programs.

Synopsis for Mr. & Mrs. Superman: "Celebration"

As the anniversary party nears, Lois reveals the news she got earlier to Clark -- she is pregnant, and, since she wanted to resume her reporting career, is driven to tears by the turn of events. After some discussion, Clark solves the problem by saying he will give up his reporting career to be a full-time father (and super-hero), and Lois will be the reporter in the family. Laura Kent, in the meantime, realizes she now has super-powers, and is thrilled. Everyone is now happy in time for the wedding anniversary party attended by all their longtime friends and colleagues.

Notes

  • This book was first published on December 6, 1979.
  • All the stories in this issue are set in the same future (described to be around the turn of the century, so approximately 20 years from 1979), and the stories all revolve around Clark and Lois's wedding anniversary that year. The introductory page says this future "might or might not be".
  • In this future, Linda (Superwoman) Danvers has a serious boyfriend (he sleeps over), but his identity is deliberately obscured. Various hints to his identity point to Dick Grayson, but this is never confirmed.
