I Can’t Cover What I Am – Did Superman Just Kill That Guy?

I Can’t Cover What I Am – Did Superman Just Kill That Guy?

In this feature, I spotlight comic book covers that follow a specific theme. Here is an archive of all the cover themes we’ve spotlighted so far.

Today we look at examples of Superman seemingly killing his friends, typically Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and Batman, but also some other folks mixed in!

Enjoy!

You don’t get much more direct than this 1970 Swanderson cover from Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #102…

Superman just rubs it in on this 1973 Bob Oksner cover from Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #135…

Superman is more sympathetic to Lois’ death on this 1959 Curt Swan/Stan Kaye cover to Superman #129…

This 1972 Oksner cover to Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #128 is a bit unclear whether it is REALLY Superman’s fault…

Neal Adams leaves no doubt about Superman’s intentions on this 1968 Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane #81 cover…

This Kerry Gammill/Dennis Janke cover for 1988’s Superman #25 isn’t explicit that Lois is dead, but it is close…

Both Lois AND Perry White get it on this 1968 Superman #203 cover by Swan and George Klein…

This one is a bit tricky. This Swan/Klein cover to 1965’s Action Comics #328 has Superman destroy ALL of Metropolis, so surely that counts as killing Lois Lane, Perry White and Jimmy Olsen, right?

This classic Neal Adams 1968 cover to Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #115 has Superman ready to kill either Jimmy Olsen or Aquaman…

Superman drops the OR part for this 1965 Swan/Klein cover to World’s Finest Comics #147, as he is trying to kill both Robin AND Jimmy Olsen…

What I love about this 1970 Swanderson cover for World’s Finest Comics #195 is how Superman actually brings up his code against killing in this context…
