So Jenny will assume the role of the clueless journalist who looks up to Superman but down at Clark?

I mean Clark does seem to have fit in as a child. The Junior Novel really underlines that fact and even Pete Ross has been re-imagined as one of his bullies. I know Clark will be finding larger acceptance as Superman, but I really like the idea of him finding acceptance at the Planet. It is a great way to show the theme of modern cities being big, diverse communities where everyone has a place and a group of people who are like them. They might pull that off with Jenny, but as I mentioned in my post above, I have little faith in Hollywood being able to handle platonic male-female relationships successfully.

Moreover, it is probably more empowering for Lois if Jimmy/Jenny looks up to her and is a man. It means that Lois is not just a role model for other women but that she has transcended gender boundaries and is a role model for all aspiring journalists.

Oh well. As long as they do a job with the relationships, I'll be happy. I just think it could have been better the other way around.
Totally with you. Glad to see someone else feels the same way about Jimmy as I do

And I do think the gender matters.

I've said it before, and i'll say it again - the kind of friendship that two guys have is just different from the kind of relationship a guy and a girl have. Even when it's totally plutonic, and even if the girl is particularly butch and likes doing manly things.

No, of course not. But she can be the person who sees Clark first and foremost. Not Superman.

I also wouldn't say Lois looks down at Clark, just doesn't really have time for him.

In some versions she does, in some versions she doesn't.

I kind of like the new Clark and Lois relationship in the Superman books. One of the things I think they have handled well. Going to be nice when she finally wakes up.

Thanks, Hopeful. I'm glad you agree. We have always seemed pretty sympatico on most issues since I've been here.

I have to agree on the gender issue. There is a certain difference in a friendly relationship where you know that both of you will never be attracted to each other. I have plenty of platonic female friends and I'm in a committed relationship, but even still, the "what if?" thought will pop into my head just out of curiosity. But maybe, I'm just an oversexed young man like DaJanksta.
