What's wrong with how this was done? I've got a sad feeling it was done less as a motivation for Superboy and more as a wish by the editors to just discard cast members as they were coming to the point of cancellation for the Superboy series.
Worst, she may have bitten the big weenie because she's not literally Lois Lane.
