Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #75

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #75 (On Sale: May 11, 1967) features a Kurt Schaffenberger cover.

"The Lady Dictator" is by Leo Dorfman and Kurt Schaffenberger. In it a criminal called the Maestro uses a device to gain mental control over Superman. The device fails, but it does leave Superman with amnesia. Seeking to capitalize on the situation, the Maestro kidnaps Lucy Lane and her parents. He then forces Lois to work for him.

Lois finds Superman and tells him that he is really a criminal. Without his memory the Man of Steel doesn't know the truth, but he trusts Lois. The Maestro then sets up Lois as a South American dictator known as General Tigre.

With Lois's help, the Maestro plans to take over a country. Via Lois, he forces Superman to activate a weapon to destroy the rebel army that opposes him.
