Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #74

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #74 (On Sale: March 23, 1967) has a strange cover by Kurt Schaffenberger. Who else thinks the Bizarro Flash looks like a Mexican wrestler? He is...El Flasho!

Inside we have the cover story, "Superman's Unbeatable Rival" written by Leo Dorfman and drawn by Kurt Schaffenberger. An alien space capsule lands on Earth containing a comatose costumed man. Lois Lane manages to awaken the man with a kiss (man is she asking for it!). She finds the man known as Hero to be attractive, and he possesses super powers. Hero acts strangely, but he does act heroically. When he confronts Chopper Blade however, Hero attempts to use Lois as a human shield. This story had it all, Lois, Superman, Jimmy, Perry and Lana. Not to mention the JLA (Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Atom, Hawkman and Green Arrow), Bizarro, Bizarro-Batman and Hero.

The second story is a reprint from Lois Lane #22, "Sweetheart of Robin Hood" is by Kurt Schaffenberger. Lois and Clark visit a display of relics from Robin Hood in an English museum. Lois is cut by a legendary arrow and passes out. When she awakens she is in the past with Robin Hood.
