Lana was first introduced in ''Superboy'' #10 (September/October 1950). As Clark's next door neighbour in Smallville she was mostly depicted as equal parts close friend and nuisance, being determined to prove Clark and Superboy were one in the same. In keeping with the tradition set by Lois she was attracted to Superboy but had little time for the timid Clark (romantically anyway.) During the SilverAge Lana would prove nearly as much a WeirdnessMagnet as ComicBook/JimmyOlsen himself, going through many transformations and gaining or losing powers as the plot demanded. After gaining a "bio-genetic" ring from an alien she even had a few adventures as a superheroine using the name "Insect Queen" and ended up a reserve member of the ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}.

* GeniusDitz: Silver Age Lana was notoriously reckless and lacking in common sense ''even'' for the SilverAge but in her quest to prove Superboy was really Clark Kent she could be incredibly cunning and inventive.

[[CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Post-crisis]] with Clark's time as Superboy retconned away Lana's role was altered into being Clark's UnluckyChildhoodFriend and SecretKeeper, largely keeping her characterisation from ''Film/SupermanIII''. She appeared occasionally in the Superman stories and had a rocky few years, marrying and then divorcing fellow Smallville native Pete Ross and never quite getting over Clark. Later on she returned to prominence as a surrogate mother/big sister figure to ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}.

Lana Lang is Clark Kent's high school love interest and one of the most prominent supporting characters in the Franchise/{{Superman}} mythos. She was originally created as a teenage CaptainErsatz of LoisLane to complicate things for ComicBook/{{Superboy}} the way her older counterpart complicated the life of the adult Superman.

Meanwhile Lana had started to appear as an adult in ''Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane'' (while still appearing as a teenager in ''Superboy'' stories). Many Superman tales of the 60s dealt with the Lois/Superman/Lana triangle. Later, in the [[BronzeAge 70s and 80s]] she was Clark's co-anchor on the WGBS-TV's evening news.
