Synopsis for "The Mermaid from Atlantis!"

This story is reprinted from Superman #138.

When Perry White sends Lois Lane and Clark Kent on an undersea assignment, Lori Lemaris telepathically taps into Clark's thoughts and decides to trick him into proposing to Lois.

While on board the ship, Lois tries to out scoop Clark by going underwater in a mini-sub to take photos. The sub becomes imperiled by a giant sea-beast, and Superman comes to her rescue. Afterwards, Lori uses her telepathy to order Superman to kiss Lois. However, he only kisses her on the nose instead of the lips, causing Lois to be mad at him.

Later, a castaway with amnesia is rescued by Lori. When he is safely on board the ship, she telepathically makes him propose to Lois in the hopes of making Superman jealous. This doesn't work, as Superman recognizes him as a foreign prince and thus, brings his father to the ship. The prime minister informs everyone that his son cannot marry Lois because he's already prearranged to marry someone else back home.

Finally, Lori tries to get Superman to see nothing but Lois's face everywhere, but this also fails.

While resuming his guise of Clark Kent, Superman is knocked overboard, and calls in Aquaman to save him so as to protect his secret identity. He then realizes what Lori was doing, and meets with her. He tells her to stop meddling in his romantic life and let him pick his own wife. Back on the ship, Clark wonders if Krypto will try to marry him off to Lois next.
