    You're stating what I "want," and strangely enough you seem to know more than I do about that. :) I really don't know whether or not their relationship will be a good thing for these fictional...

    They would find comfort and strength in each other, one would hope; and why shouldn't that comfort and strength leave them better equipped to integrate into the rest of the world? Sure, it often...

    Blacksun,

    I'll let most of your points go to avoid going in too many circles, but I want to take up a couple of them.

    Wow--you're a real fan of making straw man arguments,aren't you? I, too, would refer her to a mental health professional if she were to fall in love with "every" man (or every woman) with whom she...

    This is a classic straw man argument; you're assuming the most ridiculous version of the counterargument or scenario that you're trying to critique. That way, your critique is easy to make; but it's...

    That might be the route they'd be most likely to take, but personally I'd prefer it if she just fell in love with an ordinary human. Maybe Lois takes a gig as embedded war correspondent in a war-torn...

    What if Lois has already moved on? Maybe she fell in love with someone else, and/or she and Clark decided their relationship worked best as a friendship. I know someone will say that no one could...

    OK, I forgot that. Thanks. I still say she has a pretty low profile in Greek myth and literature. Even in the Narcissus story, in Ovid's Latin version, she's minimally described: ""Then one of those...

    What about him? Or are you just calling me a name? I'm not really as good-looking as Narcissus. :)

    Yes--ultimately the "change" she would like to make to war from the inside is to end it. It's a little odd, if not exactly paradoxical; she wants to end the very thing she embodies. Is she suicidal,...
