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

No spoiler tags above the line
Neither marriage had children, so far (except for their son in ''Film/SupermanReturns''). You also could count the adoption of Christopher Kent, a young Kryptonian boy who turned out to be [[spoiler:the son of General Zod]].

During TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, Lois had her own series, titled ''Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane''. Which lasted for 137 issues, from March-April, 1958 to September-October, 1974. In this series, which had a more humorous tone, Lois became a shrew who constantly tried to prove that Clark was Superman on the assumption that he would *have* to marry her then. Instead of, you know, simply courting him the regular way. (Note that Superman himself was openly courting her, but Lois apparently felt that she still needed to prove herself smarter than him. No wonder she became a target of his SuperDickery so often. It should also be noted that this was how most superhero [[LoveInterest love interests]] flew anyway). To be fair, they DID truly love each other, both just had a lot of quirks to overcome.

* WeakWilled: During [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks the Golden Age]] she was ''very'' [[HypnotizeThePrincess frequently (and easily) hypnotised]]. Oddly this was much more a trait of the Golden Age Lois who was assertive and had a very strong personality than the less feisty [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] version.

* {{Badass}}: Very much so. She's a crusading idealist who works as a reporter to bring down corrupt elements, and she's got the martial arts skills to back up her idealism. Lois is frequently shown to be courageous and often refuses to be intimidated by supervillains, resulting in several CMOA's for her over the years, one notable one being in SupermanUnbound when Brainiac is monologueing about how insignificant Earth and it's people seem to him, and Lois responds simply by giving Brainiac the finger, much to his confusion.

The first Lois died during the events of InfiniteCrisis (as did the first Superman) only for both to be brought back during the BlackestNight crisis as [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Black Lanterns]].

* BerserkButton: Don't insult, use Kryptonite on, or otherwise hurt Superman in front of Lois. You're talking about an unpowered human who has SeenItAll and is not intimidated even by the likes of LexLuthor and TheJoker. You do ''not'' want to be on the wrong end of her UndyingLoyalty to the Man of Steel.

Over the decades, Lois has been a symbol both [[GirlsNeedRoleModels for]] ''and'' [[StrawFeminist against]] feminism; while she is a career woman (an IntrepidReporter) who speaks her mind and goes for [[GoingForTheBigScoop the big scoop]] regardless of danger, she has also been the object of mockery for [[ClarkKenting not noticing that her fellow reporter Clark Kent]] is Superman. On this front she is normally joined by Clark Kent's other close friends, but she is closer to either of them than anyone else who does not know they are the same, and even in ''Lois and Clark'' where she does figure out the fact that Clark Kent is Superman before he tells her, she has made out with him on at least one occasion under both identities before that. She also gets marked down by some since she is [[DamselInDistress constantly getting in trouble that she needs to be rescued from]]. However at least in some incarnations this often involves her as a bold, fearless attacker who will grab whatever large object is around and go after the local evil force, at times when such a force is in the process of defeating Superman without the use of Kryptonite.
