Lois Lane at 22


Since comics characters age slowly if at all, most companies go out of their way to avoid mentioning characters' ages but here's an ad for the first issue of SUPERMAN'S GIRLFRIEND, LOIS LANE from 1958 in which National trumpets to the world not only our intrepid girl reporter's age but her weight as well!

I remember that. What is really a bit strange, is that in a letter-to-the-editor some years later, it was mentioned the the presumption of Superman's age was 28.

Times do change.
