Reign of the Supermen #444: Superman-II

Source: Superman vol.1 #354-5, 364, 368 (1980-82)
Type: Alternate future
Jorel Kent, the son of Superman and father of Superman-III (AKA Superman 2020, though I suppose they're all operating in that year). He looks kind of like the Earth-2 Superman, with the distinguished graying temples. His powers don't seem all that diminished even though he's half-human. Can't say much else because while even Superman-I gets a story in the 2020 canon (and theoretically, is the same Superman active from the Silver Age up to at least 1982), Jorel is largely ignored by the strip. So what can we talk about? Oh, I know! How about asking who his mom is? Lois, right?
Hm, not sure! Those curly bangs look like they're strawberry blond! So... Lana?! Looks like Jorel then married someone who was a lot like his mom. His bride was also fair-haired.
Sorry Lois, you don't get to win this one in alternate futures like 2020 and 2012 (oh snap!).

I dunno, I always figured that was Lois with a flower on the side of her head, not hair.

I'm not saying you're wrong. And I'm not saying we see what we want to see.

It's Luornu, she got her man! Er, the light is shining on her light brown hair.

So one of her is with Bouncing Boy, the other with Superman. Naughty.

We can't see her feet either, maybe it's Lori Lemaris :-)
