| Mousebird chapter 1 . 7/9
This was very clever. :) I really enjoyed reading it, especially since you did such a good job of balancing Lois, Batman, and Superman. It's tough to do justice to all three in a story. Luthor was also satisfying in that he was clever but not quite clever enough to outwit Batman. And the Super Dick statue had me laughing out loud. Poor Nightwing! ;) But kudos to Batman for repurposing it. The awkwardness of the statue's shape would easily discourage idle or even mild curiousity. Most people would give the statue a wide berth or laugh nervously at it, not inspect the right testicle! Thanks for writing and sharing.

I like your versions of stories. I liked Batman's protectiveness of a friend even more.
| Teri chapter 1 . 1/27/2005
Just re-reading some old favorites. I still love the way Lois interacts with 'Matches'. Wonderful story. Lois is right Clark is lucky with friends.
| Beetlecat chapter 1 . 8/4/2004
Really great. Better than the comic version for sure. Batman was more proactive (as he would be) and Superman did not compermise his morals (as he shouldn't). I love Lois/Batman interactions done this way. No one ever seems to think they can just have a relationship based on friendship. And it's so true how he puts others' safety over his own, even Superman's. I'm glad you didn't overlook this trait like so many others do. A sequal would not be amiss.

Your characterisation of Luthor and Batman is great. I loved the kids-table approach to the ring and how they squabble over it It's a welcome change from the tnese, full-of-hot air threats we've seen so far.
Congrats on a finely crafted story.

This was a damn good story. Well thought out and brilliantly written.
I loved it!
| Teri chapter 1 . 3/12/2003
Bravo! Very nice. I love your take on Batman!
| Janet chapter 1 . 4/1/2002
Wonderful. I've always liked stories with both Batman and Superman together. And you did a great job of showing a friendship that Batman doesn't want to admit to. :-)
| Kali1 chapter 1 . 3/23/2002
Very interesting story. Love the way you handle the Lois/Bruce interactions.
| Gaeriel Mallory chapter 1 . 3/22/2002
This was great! I loved every single word. I can't wait to see what else you will do in the Bat-universe. (A not-so-subtle hint! )
| Evon chapter 1 . 3/19/2002
Great story and I love the twist at the end. What would it take to get you to do more?
| Hangar 18 chapter 1 . 3/17/2002
Wow. This really blew me away. Great storytelling, dialogue, and suspense. Simply great. Lois rules.
Of course, DC would never do anything like this. They'd have to give Batman a sense of humor.
| Mick chapter 1 . 3/17/2002
really, really fantastic work. I'd be interested in seeing this become a series - Batman, Superman vs. Luthor with supporting characters - you do an excellent Lois.
Thanks for the read.
| MrManiac chapter 1 . 3/17/2002
