Lois Was Born to Be in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
27 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lois was a good soldier. As she travels with a man in a plane over a jungled area, the plane is shot down. She survives and manages to ditch a file of secret information. She is captured by Germans (I believe) who are disguising themselves as Natives (I guess that was the term for black indigenous persons). They seem to be wearing the conical white hoods that typify the KKK. I don't know if this was deliberate or not (hard to imagine that is wasn't deliberate. Anyway, Superman has to get into the act because Lois, refusing to talk, is going to be burned at the stake. Will he get there in time? How will he know precisely where she is? These issues haunt these cartoons.
