Not sure how I feel about the Lombard situation. Never thought about it until I read this but you're right. Lombard's tom foolery would land him in hot water in the work place. It seems like Clark is the only one who is having trouble with it. Lois' comment lead me to believe that she doesn't take it seriously. I realize that this was years ago, but it got me thinking. Maybe there's more story to this and a chance for Steve Lombard to grow as a character. I'm going to have to go back now and read the issues before to see where Steve is now. Great fight. I did get lost a little when Lana got to the apartment building a couple of times I had to reread to figure out what had happened. I like the way that you have reconciled Lana's feelings toward Clark. It read like a natural growth to the character. Favorite line
