History[]

Lana Lang interviewed Superman and it was obvious to a jealous Lois that Lana had made a play for him. The girls argued over Superman, and to teach them a lesson, he posed as 'Ideal-Man', an alien superhero from the Planet Knarp. Lois manipulated the situation so that Ideal-Man and Lana fell in love, only to find out at the altar that Ideal-Man and Superman were one and the same. He would not marry Lana, and Lois was horrified that she had almost lost her chance with Superman. Despite the cruel prank, both continued to love Superman.
