Crossover Month: Brutal Brunettes

You can't get much more coarse during the silver age of comics than these two ladies. Already crowned as the primary love interests of their generation's biggest stars in hero and teen comics, Veronica Lodge and Lois Lane always had a paranoia about them when main rivals Betty Cooper and Lana Lang came knocking. Meanwhile, Archie and Superman reaped the benefits of such adoration while continually having to reaffirm their love for these high-maintenance gals.

Could they have been related somehow? Their tenacity, cutthroat demeanor and intoxicating allure on men was near unmatched among their contemporaries. Good thing they never met.
