Lana's connection with Clark is revised in Mark Waid's 2003 limited series Superman: Birthright, which revises Superman's origins once further. This plot, which is inspired by the TV program Smallville (such as the presence of Ma and Pa Kent), also depicts Clark and Lana having a shared love connection when they were younger. However, after Lana's father dies, she moves away from Kansas to pursue her career as a photographer.
However, years later, after meeting at a photo shoot in Metropolis, they fall in love again but this time it's Clark who leaves for New York while Lana stays in Kansas to start a family. But when Clark returns five years later, he finds that Lana has been killed during a small plane crash. Devastated, he decides to take up residence in Kansas to protect anyone else like Lana from dying. He builds a new life for himself as Jonathan Kent and starts dating Jane Lane, whom he meets when she tries to help him deal with his grief.
Clark learns that Lana is still alive but paralyzed from the waist down due to a meteorite strike. Desperate to save her, he sets out to find the source of the rock while developing powers of his own. Once he does, he uses his strength, speed, and abilities to protect everyone around him including Lana. The two eventually marry and have a son named Lex Luthor.
Lana helps raise Clark's children after he puts them in danger by going into battle more often.
I apologies if this has been asked before, but I'm new here and haven't done any googling. I know Smallville doesn't exactly follow the comics, but the authors not only made Clark a wuss who constantly falls for Lana, but they also made Clark lose his virginity by sleeping with Lana. Three times! First to Lex, then to someone named "Mike", and finally to someone named "Carrie".
Now, I know that Lana's mother is dead and all, but she wasn't exactly a virgin when she died. So who was this guy and why didn't he show up until now?
Thanks for reading!
Lois and Clark are based on Superman being a member of Generation X. Clark, somewhere in his twenties, must go through life as a pre-thirties student. As always, Lois stands at his side at the Daily Planet, bringing that oh-so-romantic element to his existence. Lois and Clark's relationship is platonic yet on the verge of wild love, as it usually is.. with the exception that Lois does not have any other relationships during this time.
Also like Superman, Clark struggles with his identity as an alien while trying to fit in with his new found fame and responsibility as Earth's greatest hero. He also faces pressure from some members of the media and the public to use his powers for evil instead of good.
Finally, like Superman, Clark has no real family of his own; he's always relied on others to raise him. His parents are dead and he has a brother who doesn't know he exists. This fact adds more weight to why he must hide his true identity from everyone else in order to keep peace between himself and his family back home.
In conclusion, Lois and Clark is a great show because it portrays a young couple in love while having to face extreme challenges such as being superheroes for a living. It also shows what it means to be a man today - alone or with someone by your side.
Lana became a contender for Superman's devotion as an adult in several 1960s storylines, frequently appearing in the Lois Lane comics book Superman's Girlfriend, Lois Lane. Lana co-anchored the evening news on WGBS-TV in Metropolis with Clark Kent throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. She also had a role as Secretary of State in several episodes of the short-lived 1978 series Superman.
Lois Lane is Superman's girlfriend/secretary/sidekick/ally. The two characters have been associated since they first appeared together in Action Comics #1 (1938). Although she was originally intended to be a temporary companion for Superman, Lois has remained by his side ever since. She is one of the few people who know his secret identity.
Like many other superheroes, Superman has had many allies over the years. Some have been friends, others foes, but none of them have shared his secret with anyone else.
Superman's origins are somewhat mysterious. He is believed to have been born on April 4th, 1938, in Smallville, Kansas. His parents were Jonathan and Martha Kent, farmers who taught him to value honesty and truthfulness. They also taught him to always do what it takes to protect those who cannot protect themselves. An infant Superman's powers would not become fully developed until he reached puberty. By then, he had already saved the world from destruction on at least five occasions.
Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) was Clark's main love interest for the most of Smallville, although she didn't discover his secret until the final season. Clark ultimately revealed in the season 6 finale that he was an extraterrestrial from Krypton, after Lana had witnessed him utilizing his talents in secret for a several episodes. She decided to stay with him despite knowing his identity.
They began dating at the end of season 6 and ended up getting married in the season 7 premiere before separating later that same year. They have one son together named Jonathan who was born in April 2012. In October 2013 it was reported that Kristin Kreuk has exited the series due to her contract having expired. It was also confirmed that actress Chloe Sullivan will be replacing her as Lana.
It is strongly implied that Clark tells Lana about his powers early on in their relationship but he does not reveal his true identity until much later. Although they are married, they do not appear to be working on any cases together or even talk about them afterward so it can be assumed that they decide what role each other will play in their lives.
Yes, Clark does tell Lana about his abilities eventually. In fact, he uses them to win her over by saving her life when she was drowning during a camping trip and going further by protecting her from Bizarro when she was attacked by him during a party at Lex's mansion.
Clark displayed his genuine affections by kissing Lana for the first time when under the effect of red kryptonite; she was both astonished and engaged by their moment together. Calling-Lana wishes Clark a happy birthday. They kiss again in the same episode, reaffirming their relationship. When Lana is kidnapped by Lex, he uses this as an excuse to break up with Clark because he believes that if Clark loves her then he will stop searching for him. However, this plan backfires when Lois finds out that Clark has been missing for three days and decides to search for him herself. She tracks down Lana and uses her relationship with Clark to find him. At first, she thinks that he is dating another girl, but when she sees them kissing she realizes that it's actually Clark who is doing the kissing and not some other guy. Hurt by this revelation, she leaves him alone. However, once again, fate intervenes in the form of another woman: Lois discovers that Clark is suffering from amnesia and that he believes that he is still searching for Lana instead of being with her. Realizing this, she returns to help him remember the truth about their relationship.
They reunite once more when Lana returns home after being held captive by Lex. She tells Clark that she loves him and that there is no one else for her. This makes Clark realize that he does indeed love Lana and that she is the only one for him.
