The fact that Lois Lane outed that secret identity to the world isn’t a surprise as that is how the Superman run began post Convergence with Superman / Clark Kent in hiding and de-powered.

Wow, that New 52 / DC You 2015 Lois Lane seems more vengeful than her 1991 counterpart. Superman revealed his secret identity in Action Comics #662 which carried into Superman #53 at the time. It was a different tone between two lovers.

Its hard to argue that 2015 has a darker tone to its core Superman book. Clark Kent has a buzz cut, in hiding and de-powered. Lois Lane outed him out of anger or professional obligation or to spare him from Hordr’s secrets trade, but feels remorse – somewhat – as we saw in the Free Comic Book Day 2015 DC offering / Convergence month preview of the arc for Superman #41 post writer Geoff Johns.

Not sure how I feel about this new Superman era, but I’m curious what Lois Lane has to say for herself when Superman #42 hits stands on Wednesday.
