Source: Who's Who 3rd Edition; 2nd Edition Background/Roster Book, page 92; Superman: The Man of Steel Sourcebook, page 40

Ed's Notes: Arguably the most well known supporting character in comic book history. (Maybe tied with Commissioner Gordon?)

2nd Edition rates here Detective Skill at 2. The BG/R Book boils her Drawback into a Catastrophic Irrational Attraction to getting into trouble. Which seems... Unnecessarily vague to put it charitably. Other than the Detective of 2, the MoS sourcebook is identical to the Who's Who, describing her Drawback the same way as is done here, only rating it as a Catastrophic Irrational Attraction.

And, since it was still pretty recent (less than a month ago) at the time that I'm writing this... 

RIP, Margot Kidder (1948-2018)

  1. I don't know, the drawing of Lois Lane above, for me comes close to Attractive advantage, I don't know about you all. Sometimes they portrayed her really sexy!
