So Is That a Jewish Name, Or...?

Since you're all basking in the glow from last night's bout of crayonic genius, allow me to phone this one in:

This, gentle reader, is an imaginary story (that may not happen, etc.) detailed in Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane #46, wherein Lois marries a reformed Lex Luthor, resulting in the birth of Larry, who grows up to be known as Black Luthor. Surprisingly, he's not the private dick that's a sex machine to all the chicks, but rather the galaxy's most feared space pirate.

Naturally, the only thing that can reform him, aside from the mind-altering anti-evil ray that the other space pirates get a taste of, is the love of a good woman. And in this case, the part of Good Woman™ will be played by daughter of Superman and Lana Lang, whose plot to ensnare Larry with a kiss full of "evil-removing chemical" lipstick fails rather miserably. Fortunately, they hit it off despite his plan to shoot Earth into the Sun, and as we all know, love conquers space pirates.

But all that is only barely relevant to the fact I'd like to point out about Superman's daughter: Her name--her full name, mind you, as revealed in the story...

...is Joan Superman.

So with this dream we see why Lois never went into creative writing.

If DC really wants to do something different, they should get the balls and make some of these old stories happen!

I dunno, would she really need to at that time? "Today, Superman's head became a lion's and Jimmy Olsen fought pirates! The end!"

Also: am I the only one seeing a little Jaime Hernandez in the figure on the far right?

... does Lana start wearing a Superman costume after they get married as shown in the panel?

Cause that's the only thing that could make this better.

Actually, I'm getting a Hernandez vibe from both redheads in that panel.

Plus, from what little I can see, that's a cute little number Joan Superman's wearing.

I just got done looking at all the Lois Lane, Superman's Girlfriend covers and I've never laughed so hard. Who was the target audience for this comic?

Aren't all the best super-heroes (tm) Jewish.

The Supermans, the Spidermans, the Batmans?

It's better if you say it outloud and pronounce it Supermin, Spidermin, and Batmin.

Both Joan and Lana Superman are sporting Superman costumes, being that Superman himself (who I presume is referred to now as Superman J. Superman) cooked up a serum that gave them powers.

But they have to take it every day. Because, you know, otherwise Joan couldn't get kidnapped.

I'd like to point out that in the imaginary story where Lois grows a mustache, Lois and Superman's baby is also named "Larry".
