Working for the Daily Planet, Lois Lane has become an investigative journalist of international renown. She is known for having a close friendship with Metropolis' hero Superman, though most don't know that she is also his wife in his real-life identity of Clark Kent. Lois is an immensely capable and determined woman, who has earned the enmity of many powerful people, not least Lex Luthor - she rightly suspects that when Luthor was president, his appointment of her (now late) father in his cabinet was a move designed specifically to irritate her.
