I Love Ya But You’re Strange - That Time Lois Lane ALSO Made Out With Supergirl's Horse

Every week, I will spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories (basically, we're talking lots and lots of Silver Age comic books). Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature.

Today we take a look at Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #92 (written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Curt Swan and Mike Esposito, not a pairing you normally see), where Lois Lane falls in love with Supergirl's superhorse, Comet...

As established in the previous edition, when a comet passes by Earth, Supergirl's superhorse, Comet, turns into a human being (after first turning into a centaur, which is what he originally was before taking a magic potion centuries ago, courtesy of some jerk named Malador).

Naturally enough, that is what happens in this issue (not before he first saves Lois Lane while as a superhorse - her incredulity at the existence of a superhorse is kinda cute), and (going by his real name of Biron) he gets work as a magician at a hotel Lois Lane is staying at...

They flirt a little and Biron uses his telepathic powers to save Lois's life. Then he makes the big confession...

And she's surprisingly cool with it...

They try something that you really have to wonder why Biron didn't try earlier...

Uh oh!!!

The bad guy meets up with Lois and turns HER into a horse!!

She rescues Biron...

Then the comet finishes its journey and Biron becomes a horse again. He and Lois frolic together as horses...

Eventually Superman comes by and "saves" her...

Lois' memory wipe doesn't take away her knowledge of Biron's secret identity, though (which makes you wonder why partially wipe her memory at all)...

That is quite a story! I think they should reveal that this is who Lois is dating in the new DC Universe.

Note: While I was always planning on featuring this issue as a follow-up to the Supergirl adventure, it is worth noting that a commenter named brian did mention this story the other day.
