Here's a little glimpse of Lois Lane's body issues, courtesy of Showcase v1 #9:
At first, I thought Lois needed some serious therapeutic intervention.
Then I remembered this post. And I also remembered that Superman is a colossal douche.
Female vanity is a gold mine to get around writer's block. There is hilarity, because fat people are always causing cars to collapse:
and even Superman isn't above making comments about a woman's weight:
Keep in mind, we've seen Superman of that era lift up entire buildings. He was clearly just being a jackass. Again.
Ah, that's entertainment! Thanks, Lois Lane v1 #5! Making fun of obese people is always a good read, don't you think?
So all things considered, Lois should indeed hop on the scale every time Superman seems to be giving her the brush-off. Lesson learned, girls?
See you tomorrow!
