Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #89

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #89 (On Sale: November 14, 1968) has a cover by Carmine Infantino and Neal Adams.

"The Bride of Batman" is an imaginary tale by Leo Dorfman, Curt Swan and Mike Esposito. When Superman is away on a mission with Wonder Woman, the lonely Lois Lane begins dating Bruce Wayne. They eventually fall in love and decide to marry. Superman regrets his own missed opportunity with Lois, but he serves as best man at their wedding. After the marriage ceremony, Bruce reveals his secret identity to Lois.

The couple is happy and soon they have a son, Bruce Junior. As the boy grows older, Batman and Robin begin training him. Meanwhile Lois is captured by an underworld gang who want to learn Batman's secret identity. When threatened Lois tells the gang that Clark Kent is Batman.

Lois is released and tells Bruce about what she did. Lois and Batman then act to protect Clark, though he is really invulnerable. When the gang tries to kill him, Batman foils their plot. The crooks are apprehended and convinced that Clark is not the Caped Crusader. Later Superman explains to Batman that his fear of crooks making a connection between he and Lois was the reason he never married her.
