Have you heard? Superman and Lois Lane are finally getting married… and you’re invited!
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, the live action television series, ran for four seasons from 1993 to 1997 and is most famous as the catalyst, both on screen and in print, for the wedding of Clark and Lois Kent. Although you won’t be able to see the wedding itself without springing some cash, the first three seasons of this revolutionary series are completely free, courtesy of TheWB.
Maybe more importantly, Lois & Clark was the first mainstream medium to portray Clark Kent as a dominant personality and Superman as a persona – a trend which continues to this day. Even if the ticket to the big show isn’t available, though, seeing all the events which lead up to the proposal is a thrilling ride, and Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher are no slouches in their leading roles.
Of course, you’ll still get the usual good vs. evil, Action Comics sort of stuff – Luthor, Metallo, Toyman, the Intergang, The Prankster, and others all show up – and we also get some fun original characters like the fan-favorite Tempus (and even, at one point, a time-travelling H.G. Wells).
If you’ve never glanced at this important part of Superman lore, well, there’s no time like the present. Happy viewing!
