Lots of Lois Lane Lookalikes!

In Drawing Crazy Patterns, I spotlight at least five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Note that these lists are inherently not exhaustive. They are a list of five examples (occasionally I'll be nice and toss in a sixth). So no instance is "missing" if it is not listed. It's just not one of the five examples that I chose.

Years ago, I did a Drawing Crazy Patterns about Lois Lane lookalikes and you know what? There are so many of them out there that I have enough to do a whole other edition of Lois Lane Lookalikes!

In Superman #55 (by Bill Woolfolk, Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye), Mary Jones is the personal secretary for a really rich dude who has fallen in love with Lois Lane. Like, he's totally obsessed with her and he sets out to win her love by competing with Superman in a bizarre spectacle that basically revolves around the idea of him being able to outdo Superman just using his fortune versus Superman's superpowers. His secretary, of course, is madly in love with her boss...

Later, Mary tries to kill herself, but it seems like it is a bit more of a traditional cry for help than anything, as she tells Superman about it before she does it, which suggests that she wanted Superman to save her, right? Anyhow, once he rescues her, he figures out that she is actually Lois Lane's exact double and when her boss THOUGHT that he was obsessed with Lois Lane, it was actually his secretary that he was nuts about!

Six issues later (no credited writer, but Boring and Kaye on art duties), Lois Lane sees Superman save a blonde actress at a play and she gets so jealous that she decides that she might need to dye her hair blonde to get his attention. Amusingly, no one can recognize her with her new hair color. Later, she dyes it red and she now looks exactly like the movie star, Bonnie Ames (how does this work, exactly? Seriously no one noticed the resemblance until she dyed her hair?), and she almost causes a deadly accident as fans at a baseball game run to see her...

In the delightfully bizarre "The Batman Nobody Remembered" by Bill Finger, Jim Mooney and Sheldon Moldoff from World's Finest Comics #136, Batman accidentally finds himself traveling to an alternate world where he never existed and Lois Lane on this world is Vicki Vale...
