* ''Superman's Girl Friend, ComicBook/LoisLane'' has a story in which Lois loses her eyesight after her eyes get grazed by a mugger's bullet. Her doctor helps her see again by having her undergo cataract surgery. Unfortunately, the new corneas came from a convicted murderer from Gotham City. This causes Lois to have visions of random Gotham residents silently screaming in horror before getting shot. Lois eventually figures out that [[spoiler:the visions are actually illusions created by {{Mooks}} trying to keep her from speaking against their crime boss in court]], but right before she reveals this to Superman and a judge, she sees ''herself'' in the position of one of the murder victims.


* Just how ''bizarre'' the Silver Age stories were, due to a combination of the Comics Code, and trying to write around Supermans ridiculous power. Imagine being a normal person who lives a normal life up until Superman appeared, then suddenly, because you're in his life, your own becomes an endless surreal acid trip of dangerous nonsense.

But today, along came ''TearJerker/InjusticeGodsAmongUs''...


* If you count the number of times Comicbook/LoisLane has been nearly murdered in horrible, horrible ways by super-villains, crooks, Eldritch Abominations... you'll wonder how she stays sane.

* All the times Lois had her mind erased or changed for the plot of the week. MindRape is only scratching the surface, no wonder she became increasingly ditzy.
* The cover where Superman finds a whale with Lois face on it, it's extremely disturbing, especially the face's SlasherSmile.
