All the best superheroes these days have got serious daddy issues. Batman’s current story arc is culminating in a showdown with his alternate universe daddy who teamed up with Bane to pretty much ruin his entire life. Superman’s daddy took his grandson to outer space and lost him in an alternate dimension where he aged into a teenager, and then Jor-El had to be sentenced to death for crimes against the universe. Aquaman is currently facing off against a villain literally named Sea Daddy. And things are no better over at Marvel, where The Hulk’s daddy is a literal demon and Ironheart’s daddy is a high-ranking member of the Ten Rings.
But eventually, you have to put those daddy issues behind you if you want to move on as a hero, and since she’s starring in her own book, it’s time for Lois Lane to do just that. Of course, her daddy is dead, which makes it easier, the victim of the need to kill off characters for shock value in a super-mega-crossover event. And in Lois Lane #6, we see Lois hold a funeral for her daddy.
Check out the preview below. Lois Lane #6 hits stores tomorrow.
