Added DiffLines:

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: More modern takes on Lois portray her as serving this for Superman showing that he would fall apart, go insane or evil without her.
** This arguably began with ''Film/SupermanTheMovie'' where the finale showed that Superman would rather disregard his father's advice and turn back time then live without Lois.
** The ''Franchise/{{DCAU}}'' had one alternate universe, ''Brave New World'' show that without Lois, Superman would become a KnightTemplar puppet of Lex Luthor. When Prime!Lois accidentally visits this world, she sneers at this trope by mocking AU!Superman, "Look at you now, married to Luthor". A later AU however averts this, ''A Better World'' shows Justice Lord!Superman becoming a dictator while keeping Lois under house arrest.
** ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' takes this to the extreme with Injustice!Supes becoming a DarthVaderClone in grief over [[spoiler:The Joker making him accidentally kill a pregnant Lois]].
** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' has Superman telling Lois that she is "my world" and [[spoiler:a vision by Batman shows that in a BadFuture, Superman becomes a dictator in grief over losing Lois]].

** When DC launched their ComicBook/New52 program, Lois and Clark's relationship was retconned out of existence (to make room for a romance between Superman and ComicBook/WonderWoman) and Lois had a new boyfriend named Jonathan Carroll. He disappeared sometime prior to the [[ComicBook/SupermanTruth "Truth"]] arc, and as of ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' Lois and Clark are very much together.

* ParentalSubstitute: Earth-2 Lois Lane became this to Comicbook/PowerGirl when she and Clark took the young Kryptonian woman in. Post-Crisis Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} also became kind of a daughter to Lois.

* MamaBear: She proves to be this with her son Jonathan - when the Eradicator tries to kill him because of his half-Kryptonian[=/=]half-Human nature, Lois ends up discovering Batman's Hellbat Armor, a suit of armor designed to go toe-to-toe with friggin' ''Darkseid'', and using it to pummel the construct. Hell, Lois herself tell the Eradicator not to mess with the baby bear(her son Jonothon) when the mama bear(herself) is around as she beat him.

In 1974, the series, along with ''Superman's Pal, Comicbook/JimmyOlsen'' and ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'', was moved into the ''Superman Family'' comic series, where Lois got to strut her stuff in her own stories as a {{Badass}} ActionGirl reporter who managed to [[GoingForTheBigScoop get the big scoops]] while taking down bad guys without Superman's help throughout the '70s and early '80s.

* BaldWomen:
** This once happened in combination with MyBrainIsBig: [[http://www.politedissent.com/archives/615 here.]]
** Another Silver Age tale had Lois under the effect of Red Kryptonite, making her a monster under certain circumstances. One time, she turns into a monster after her sister Lucy brushes her hair and goes asleep. Monster-Lois uses a pair of scissors and hacks off all of Lucy's hair, leaving Lucy with a bald head ''sans big brain.''

* VitriolicBestBuds: In those continuities where she doesn't know Clark Kent and Superman are the same, she is usually this to Clark, enjoying a very friendly workplace rivalry with him and chastising him for his timidity. In the early [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] her dislike for Clark was genuine but their relationship quickly evolved into this trope.

Later, more often in the post-crisis stories this went even further as her teasing covered up a massive crush on Clark.
