Not Feminist Enough.

Harry Knowles on Lois Lane in his review of Man of Steel.

No pretty little lies about attraction triggers for females Man of Steel, but I doubt the feminists will take much time to complain about this. In previous adaptations Superman proved himself to be a mix of alpha and beta for Lois Lane, but this movie seems to emphasize once again that the initial cause of her attraction to him is his raw alphaness. As she becomes more of a feminist, kick-ass herione in later versions, hypergamy is made even more extreme. Who can satisfy Lois Lane? No mere human male; only a superhuman alien.
