Lois has to be hot? I mean, I guess so, because plain women aren't allowed near cameras, and the porno movies comic book artists trace from tend to be your standard Brazzers-type productions. People say that Superman, being the world's most desirable man (which isn't true, there's no particular reason to believe he even has a normal dick, and more seriously he's a pretty inaccessible mate, especially when JMS is writing him) needs the world's most desirable woman. Here's why that's stupid. Superman is unlikely to care about looks at all. To him, we are all just piles of infrared-radiating meat and organs with bone inside. I bet he spent the first month of having x-ray vision willing himself unhorrified. I really doubt he cares about wrinkles or love handles, you know? He can see your shit. Before you shit it. Also, crucially, a lookist Superman is all kinds of wrong. But anyway, if I were casting, I'd pick Zooey Deschanel. Pete Woods did, and it seemed to work out okay. But I'd also put her in a touch of age-makeup, because at 30 she's too young. I might also send her to acting school, but just being able to say the lines in The Happening probably deserves its own special kind of Oscar.
