some parallels between lena luthor (supergirl) and lois lane (smallville)

  • L.L.
  • both defied their families and are forging their own paths
  • both LL’s were saved by their super counterpart from a chopper almost crashing
  • complicated relationship with sibling
  • constantly saving a super
  • constantly being saved by a super
  • encouraged the super to become a reporter/become better at it
  • likes to take risks and ends up in trouble in one way or another
  • supers always bringing them food (if i remember it right, clark occasionally brought lois coffee and well there’s the whole donuts thing for kara)
  • usually portrayed as damsels in distress but can actually kick ass
  • supers voluntarily exposing themselves to kryptonite just to save LL
  • was a super’s confidante/support system/best friend while said super was in a different relationship (clark x lana) (kara x xxxxxxx)
  • and of course, there’s the iconic bridal style carrying which is the most iconic love interest gesture in every superman franchise ever

these are just at the top of my head lol


Smallville 10.04  // Supergirl 2.01


A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about.
