What's even lamer than Superman? His supporting cast, of course!
Check out Jimmy Olsen. He had his own inexplicably successful title back in the day. Here's Pimp Olsen from Jimmy Olsen #76:
Yeah, she'll be tearing that "latest style dressing robe" right off you with her teeth. Poor girl doesn't stand a chance.
Sometimes, the boredom factor was so painfully obvious that the writers would slap a ridiculous suit on him and give him the powers of Elastic Lad. Note how the full name "Elastic Lad" was written on the front and back of the costume. That way, when a bad guy was smacking the life out of him, he would correctly remember to say "Take that, Elastic Lad!" instead of "Take that, Jimmy Olsen!"
It looks to me like, in this particular picture, the bad guy could just jump over the maze. I mean, it's maybe waist high.
From the groundbreaking Lois Lane #50: Lana Lang gushes over a contest where the objective was to see who could kiss Superboy's ass the most effectively.
Also from Lois Lane #50, Lois herself:
Wow, Lois, I don't know what you have in mind, but I feel like someone should be calling the cops. I'm also a little concerned that Mr. Harmless Scientist has all that stuff handy. When she asks for duct tape, a chainsaw and some bleach, I'm outta here...
Cripes, Lois, now what's with the dagger and semi-automatic handgun? And how am I supposed to practice this at home? I didn't know that offensive weapons commonly used in murder/suicide pacts were required materials for this course!
This is really one scary chick. Nothing personal, Lois, but I'm not turning my back on you. Ever.
