OK, I was reading something where someone suggested that Clark/Superman saving Lois 3 times in a film was a record. I though "no way, he clearly saves her life more times than that in Witness." So I decided we should try to come up with how many times Clark/Superman saves Lois's life. I will make a separate challenge for other life saves.

1- Witness - Clark Saves Lois from being pushed into traffic by a skateboarder.

2- Witness - Clark catches the bullet fired by Finn at Lois.

3- Witness - Clark chases off Finn disguised as Mr. Tracewski when he is trying to suffocate Lois.

4- Witness - Superman saves Lois on the roof of an office building in a weird sequence that seems a lot like he is using her as part of a wack-a-mole game.

7. ASU - Superman saves world from Nightfall, i.e. therefore also saves Lois.

I'm guessing you want actual "rescues" here and won't count, something like HoL - Lois's love of Clark saves her from a life (or death) as Lex Luthor's wife. wink If you, John, as moderator feel as if this counts. Please add a number to it. laugh

Well, if we want to get to 100, we will probably count non-standard things, plus they are more fun, so the love from Clark saving Lois from marrying Lex counts as #8.

9. "Ordinary People" - Superman rescues Lois from a falling flagpole.

10. "We've Got a Lot to Talk About" - Superman rescues Lois from the exercise bomb.

11. "Don't Tug on Superman's Cape" - Clark stands between Lois and the killer helicopter sent by the Lakes.

Sorry, I got confused. I fixed it. I guess I should have done it faster and not added some more.

13. "Stop the Presses" - Superman throws the missile into the mile-deep whole and covers the blast, thus saving Lois, because she would have died in the nuclear blast.

14. "Lucky Leon" - Superman sends a nuclear missile about to blow into space, thus saving Lois and everyone else in Metropolis.

15. "Stange Visitor" - Superman catches Lois mid-fall from the plane.

16. "I'm Looking Through You" - Superman breaks the vault just in time so Lois does not suffocate.

17. "Requium for a Superhero" - Clark (I think) creates an "earthquake" so the bad guys go away and do not find Lois while B&E.

22. "Ordinary People" - Clark saves Lois from drinking poisoned water by using his superpowers to make a well (thus for the second time loosing the bet). Hmm, "Ordinary People" does have Clark save Lois 3 times.

24. "The Return of the Prankster" - Superman saves Lois from the exploding power plant.

45. "I've Got You Under My Skin" - Clark (in Woody Sams's body) shows up at their townhouse and saves Lois from breaking her marriage vows. OK, so with how long it took Woody to get back in Calrk's body and how odd he was acting, she would have probably noticed even if Clark had not showed, but still.

46. "Soul Mates" Charles "Lone Rider" Reid saves Lulu from the clutches of Tempus Tex. I figured I had to give him a name, so make it sort of like the Long Ranger.

47. "Seconds" (I think that is the name of that Wedding Aargh episode) - Superman saves Lois from Luthor's collasing lair (although not her memory).

48. "Forget Me Not" - Superman saves Lois from becoming an assassin.

How about Charles "Lone Rider" Knight? Then his initials will still be CK.

Yes, I like that better. Although maybe we should be a bit more creative and call him Clarence "Lone Rider" Knight.

50. "Wall of Sound" - Clark beats Lois in the competition for a Kerth and saves her career from atrophying with no competition.
