Comic book odd: Superman, you’ve got a point there

lois lane 63

How amazing is this?

How many of us have joked that it seemed unlikely that Lois Lane – not to mention Lex Luthor and everybody else in the world – wouldn’t recognize Superman just because he wore a pair of glasses as Clark Kent?

I vaguely remember a Superman comic that explained that Superman’s super-vision, when filtered through Clark’s glasses – produced a kind of Super-hypnosis that made everyone see Clark as a little old man.

Yeah, I didn’t believe that one, even as a kid.

But I had no idea that DC addressed the problem – and even early on, in February 1966 with “Lois Lane” 63.

I don’t know if the story inside is the Super-hypnosis one I’m thinking of.

Wonderful cover. And what an attitude Supes has.
