Superman #310

Not one of the happier moments for Clois (at least Lois and to a degree for Clark.)  It seems she has mentally chosen Superman and while she's tried to put her feelings for him out of the way to persue a relationship with Clark his need to leave in an emergency puts up a barrier for her that she just can't get rid of and she's made a decision that with inexorably alter their relationship forever (or at least that's the way it looks.)  She's resigning from her job at the Planet with the decision to move away.  Where?  The Comic never answers and I don't have the previous to subsequent comic to know.  Click on the pages to see them clearer and larger.  This is from sometime in 1977.

Reading these panels make me hate Pre-Crisis Superman comics even more.

Ouch. Could I ask why (or is it the maneuvers he makes to get out of there?)

There's good moments out there for the two of them (and comics that identify that there are elements of Clark that Lois likes in Superman (and that are sometimes lacking in him due to his "job" he won't tell her about but will as Superman.) I'm posting a page from one of them in the future.

It's mainly due to the fact that I don't like when Superman is the real identity and Clark is the secret disguise.

I've been introduced to the Supes-verse via LnC - and that's how I came to love the Clark Kent character and it's always been how I view Clark and Superman as "Clark is who I am, Superman is what I can do", and how it affects the Clois relationship for me.

That make sense. In that case you definitely wouldn't have liked a subsequent comic (I don't have it but I have a comic where Lois tells Lana of the changes in her relationship for Clark and which one it is so it's on my list to look for.) Basically it seems like Clark got desperate enough to attempt to marry her (he proposed as Clark) but Lois tried to get him to state/show he's Superman (I don't know the specifics beyond that and Lois feels awful about trying to get him to own up to it and it seems like he convinced her he is NOT Superman.) Believe me, this time in their relationship is among the darkest.

I came into Superman through a more traditional means (the comics from the 70s AND 90s as well as the Fleischer cartoons and the Animated series) so I was familiar with both dynamics and can seem to switch between them. I do have to say that LnC is among my favorites, just not the only favorite (as to which one is absolute? None of them but that's because I like all of them equally.)
