Speaking of challenging Superman, the writers brought back Lois’ niece Susie Thompkins in Action Comics #68 (November 1943). Continuity problems already DC? For shame! Lois seems to have forgot that she introduced the two earlier in the year and Susie’s hair color has changed!
I also liked two things about this issue: 1) The banter between Lois and Clark and 2) The cover of this comic book actually depicts a scene from the story within, which was a rarity for DC at the time.
