Strangely, the characterization of Lois is amazingly like the real-life personality of my lovely wife.Joe Shuster based Lois' physical appearance on a model name Joanne Carter.Shuster's depiction of Lois was based on her hairstyle and facial features.Carter later married co-creator Jerry Siegel in 1948.What inspired me in the creation was Glenda Farrell, the movie star who portrayed Torchy Blane, a gutsy, beautiful headline-hunting reporter, in a series of exciting motion pictures.Because the name of the actress Lola Lane (who also played Torchy) appealed to me, I called my character Lois Lane.In the 2006 film Superman Returns, she was played by Kate Bosworth.
Aspects of Lois' personality have varied over the years, depending on the comic book writers handling of the character and American social attitudes toward women at the time.
