According to the Superman Homepage website http://supermanhomepage.com, Lucy Lane’s accepted birthday is July 25. She is the younger sister of Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane. This episode explores Lucy’s silver age and post-Crisis histories and some of her earliest stories.
Lucy Lane first appeared in SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 36, April 1959. This story was reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. III. Since I only have the first volume of this reprint series, the plot synopses I use in this episode come from MIKE’S AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS at http://dcindexes.com.
Next Episode: AN IMAGINARY SUMMER 2010, PART II: WAVERIDER AND THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN ANNUAL 3, 1991!
