The daughter of General Sam and Elinore Lane, Lois was born in a U.S. Army hospital outside of Wiesbaden, Germany. Sam Lane had always wanted a boy and did not hide his disappointment from Lois, who became a model of self-sufficiency in response to her father's emotional distance. After high school, Lois moved to Metropolis and worked full time at the Daily Planet, rapidly becoming the Daily Planet's leading investigative reporter, winning many awards and a daredevil reputation.
Lois was the person who first named the superhero "Superman", due to the Kryptonian "S" crest on his costume. Befriending the superhero, Lois also gained a new partner, Clark Kent, whom she initially disliked; seeing him as a rival, but eventually fell in love and married. Only later did she discover that Clark and Superman were one and the same person.
