Early life[]

At a young age, Lois' mother left her and her sister, Lucy.[2] Throughout her life, Lois realized that her father's job was his number one priority. Accepting that wasn't easy, but she learned to live with it and somehow even came to respect him because she believed he was trying to do the right thing and thought that once she had a family, he could change and start to put them first.[3]

When they were young, Sam liked to tell Lois and Lucy that he set two state records in his senior year. At some point, Lois and Lucy snuck out with Sam's rum. Later, they took a sketchy bus back to base only to find him waiting for them and he got pissed.[4]

When Lois was 15, she only dated guys who would piss off her dad. At some point, she started dating a guy named Dave, who played in a Primus cover band. She found dating him awful and hasn't told any other guys she dated about it.[5]

The two introduced themselves, to which Lois stated she had never met a Clark before, though Clark said he only knew one Lois. Just than Ron Troupe arrived to excitedly remark that Superman's arrival was his path to a Pulitzer, showing Jimmy Olsen's pictures of the hero. Lois wasn't as excited, which led Clark to ask her if she thought heroes were a good thing; and she said Metropolis has many systemic issues beyond simple rescues.

At some point, Lois began investigating a case of an arsonist attacking and defacing minority-owned businesses with Nazi SS symbols. Clark was surprised not to know this and Lois pointedly said that Superman's arrival had drowned out her coverage of the situation; so Clark offered to help.

Sitting in the office of the Daily Planet, Clark complimented Lois' journalism before telling her that he had to get going. Lois jokingly asked if he had a big date, though Clark dismissed the idea. Before Clark moved to leave, Lois offered to ask Perry to give him his own beat in something such as local politics, but Clark declined and wished to stay alongside her.

The next day, Lois left to confront one of their suspects, Henry Miller. Miller revealed himself as the arsonist and was going to attack her, until she was saved by Superman, who froze the flamethrower and Lois could knock Miller down with a tazer. As Lois approached Superman, she asked for his name, suggesting "Mister Metropolis" or "Red and Blue Man". Superman said she'll come up with something and left, leaving Lois to decide upon dubbing the hero as "Superman".

Lois and Clark at Kent Farm

Lois and Clark move to Smallville.

Lois and Clark were getting ready to go out to celebrate their wedding anniversary when Jordan commented on why they were celebrating just four days after their actual wedding day date. Lois and Clark then told the boys the story of their first anniversary and Clark flew Lois to Hawaii.[9]

Lois and the Kent family moved to Smallville to the Kent Farm; Lois thought that this was an opportunity for new family memories and to fall in love with Clark all over again. After a long day, the Kents ate take-out for dinner, while the boys discussed their problems with going to Smallville High School; namely, Jonathan had not gotten the football playbook from Coach Gaines and Jordan did not like his selection of classes. Clark and Lois then told Jordan that one reason they moved to Smallville was to have a safe place to train him in his power usage and going to regular school is not a good idea. Dinner then ended, as Jordan runs from the table, upset, and Jonathan left to talk to with his girlfriend Eliza.

The next morning, Lois drove Jonathan to school as Clark took Jordan to the Fortress of Solitude to investigate his newfound powers. As Lois sat in a diner researching Morgan Edge's past dealings with New Carthage, she noticed that a woman is watching her. Lana Lang and Kyle Cushing enter the diner, greeted Lois, and invited her to the Cushing family barbecue. Kyle noticed Lois' work, but when Mayor George Dean walked past, Kyle was distracted from arguing. Lois then learned of the city council meeting.

Lois received a call from her father that he was coming to the farm. As the sun set, Clark hugged Lois happily; Clark and Jordan were closer as father and son. As Lois told Clark about the council meeting, Clark heard the approach of Sam. Lois volunteered to take their sons to the meeting so the men could be alone.

At the meeting, Lois told the boys to behave and that they would not be there for long. Lois confronts the woman from the diner; she is Chrissy Beppo of the Smallville Gazette and she has admired Lois for awhile but was too scared to introduce herself. As the meeting starts and George Dean introduces Morgan Edge, Chrissy told Lois that she could write for her paper anytime. Morgan promised over 600 jobs, but Lois wanted to know if that number is an estimate or not, because Morgan failed New Carthage when he went there with promises of opportunity. Morgan let the citizens of Smallville know with an backhanded compliment that he is Lois' boss, before he had the people see him as a provider who has the option to change his mind if Lois pursues her questions. The meeting concluded, with Lois sitting quietly.

The next day, Lois listened as Clark tells of his battle in Mongolia. Lois begins her article on Edge and the research that she did. Clark reminds her that she is writing negatively about her boss; she tells him politely to do his thing as Superman, while she does hers.

The boys wanted to know what was the most embarrassing thing Clark heard, but Lois insisted that the conversation stayed age-appropriate. Switching the subject, Lois and Clark talked to the boys about not drawing attention to their father's secret identity or even Jordan's sporadic powers.

The next evening over dinner, Clark and Lois talked about the twins' reaction to Clark's eavesdropping; she reminded him that he almost lost her because of it when he eavesdropped on her when they were first dating. Back then, Clark spent two-weeks' pay on flowers to win her back; Lois said that the promise to stop was more important and asked him to do the same with the twins.

The next night, Lois listened as Clark confronted Jordan about joining the Smallville Crows. The conversation became heated and the twins were sent to their rooms. As Lois prepared to see Sharon Powell in New Carthage, she told Clark not to think so much about Jordan's anger. She borrowed Clark's truck to travel to New Carthage, joking about her burned car.

Lois arrived to a motel in New Carthage to meet with Sharon. She noticed the door ajar, but entered anyways; there is evidence of a struggle. Lois then saw a tall man and immediately ran but he stopped her. Lois stabbed him in the ear with an ink pen but he was not deterred. Lois uses the ELT; Superman was there in seconds.

Lois felt that Edge was there, pretending to care about the citizens. Sam approached the women and became upset when he realized that Jordan was demonstrating super powers.

Lois and Sam went to the farm to discuss the possibility that Jordan had powers when Clark arrived and defended his wife against her father. Sam realized that the Kent family moved to Smallville to develop Jordan's powers. Sam explained his situation about Intergang and Thaddeus Killgrave to the Kents but Clark retorted that his sons were his top priority. Sam decided to send the weekend to understand the family's choices better.

Lois went to the Gazette to talk to Chrissy about her article against Edge when Leslie Larr arrived and reminded Lois that she has a contract with the Daily Planet that Lois cannot defame Morgan under penalty.
