Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #82

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #82 On Sale: February 13, 1968) has a cover by Neal Adams.

"The Tragic Fate of the Superman Sweethearts" is by Leo Dorfman, Irv Novick and Mike Esposito. Lois Lane is transported to the future after boarding a time machine space ship. She arrives in the year 4068 and learns that she is destined to marry Superman. However, the marriage is short-lived when the couple is killed on their honeymoon by the Executioners.

Lois then returns to her own time period. Superman proposes to her just as history had shown. She reluctantly accepts, but tries to avert their tragic deaths. Lois's seemingly fails to change history when Superman is exposed to Gold Kryptonite and the newlyweds' plane crashes.

The couple survive because Superman suspected trouble and took a Gold Kryptonite antidote prior to exposure (Same bat-time! Same Bat-Channel!). Lois then returns to the future with Superman and learns that the people of Katraz are actually criminals. The version of history Lois saw on her previous trip was rewritten to suit the criminals' wishes. When Lois and Superman return home, they agree to get an annulment of their marriage.
