  • Lois has been saved by five different members of the Justice League: Superman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Watchtower and Hawkman.
  • Lois is a third degree black belt, and is sometimes able to subdue her attackers. But her confidence in her fighting ability often results in her getting in over her head. For example, she ends up taking on two Kryptonians in Arrival, fighting a Zoner Titan in Combat, getting shot by Gina in Descent, and being stabbed by an armed guard in Phantom.
  • Clark has saved or helped save Lois' life eleven times without her knowledge. He's accomplished this by using superspeed, by saving her while she was unconscious or incapacitated, or by saving her while out of sight.
  • So far, Lois has almost died 64 times so far since her first appearance in Crusade.
