A Matter of Character...  
So.  This is your friendly neighborhood co-author (and sometime Voice of Doom), once again stealing Lois' journal.  We've gotten some questions recently about certain characters in LS, and I thought we'd answer them as best we could.

The following characters are Superman canon, owned by DC Comics and/or Warner Brothers.  Some are from the Reeve/Kidder Superman films, some are from Superman Returns, and some are from the monstrous collection of Superman comics that Lois owns.

Lois Lane
Perry White
Jimmy Olsen
Lana Lang
Martha Kent 
Lex Luthor(and yes, I know these seven are a big fat DUH)
Kitty Kowalski
Jonathan Kent
Lucy Lane
Ella Lane
Sam Lane
Ron Troupe
Jason (White in SR, but Lane for LS)
Richard White
Ben Hubbard
Police Commissioner Bill Henderson
Maggie Sawyer of the Metropolis SCU
Tobie Raines (and yes, I know now, having actually BOUGHT the miniseries comic, that I've been misspelling the character's name.  Blame wikipedia.  Oh, and while you're at it, if you've been wondering why a reporter like Tobie is living with Lt. Sawyer, go wikisearch Maggie Sawyer.)
Loueen (who's also misspelled; she's credited as Leueen, but I loathed that spelling and it wouldn't stick in my brain)
Gil and Judy
Bill Freizon
Steve "Grizzly" Lombard

I think that's all.  One of our brilliant readers will surely inform us if we've screwed up.

Now, characters who are ours.  This'll be a longer list, because we invented a lot of characters.  Especially in about chapters 17 through 25, when we were handing out walk-on roles to all our pals.  In those cases where the character is a clear tribute to one of our readers, reviewers, or friends, it should be obvious.

Kala Lane (OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!  So much so she won an award.  Best OC Movieverse 2007, y'all!)
Dr. Arnaud
Dr. Schuler
Elliot Marrin
Caroline Biste
Rhea (writer of the Eclectic Reader column)
Vanna of Vgerland Real Estate
Brian Beateau
Mel (the horse-fancying Texan who rescued Kitty.  Hello, Mel!)
Nurse Tage
Dr. Donner
Dr. Shelby Patterson
Mankiewicz, Daily Star photographer
General Joffrey Unsworth
Officers Smith and Davis (not named for anyone, Smith was just a jerk and Smith's a common name.  Sorry, Brian.  Notice that Beateau above, if pronounced in French, sounds like Beeto.)
Abigail Montgomery
Babette from Accounting
Gwen (the obnoxious nurse)
Barbara Thomas and family
Mrs. Mosley
Vera (the obnoxious secretary)
Sophie Noux
Dr. Saavikam
Mrs. Mackenzie
Michelle Troupe, Ron & Lucy's fourth child (we also named Little Sam, Nora, and Joanna, but STM proved their existence)
Wade Carmichael and family (you will see his younger siblings later in LS and in Intimidation.  Plus, Wade himself will be back very soon.)
The Smallville Geezers Convention (who are all, in some way, named after the quintessential old fart, my dad.  Except Ellzey, who's named after my awesome boss, a self-described old guy)
GAZEERA!!!!  (Yes, we know it's spelled Gojira, but Kala named the lizard)
Captain Jack the Ferret
Barkley the Beagle and his untold descendants, including Bagel

There's lots more we're forgetting, but it's 4:30 AM.  And if any of our regulars have been left out, fear not, you shall appear.  Particularly Kat (you got a restaurant named for you, but not a character yet), Lea (wanna be the hot blonde Richard dated in college?  Hmm?), and 7crazyread, whose real name I don't know (that makes naming a character for you pretty hard).  We also need to get laramary in there, too.

I figured you wouldn't mind that. Actually, we were going to make you the blonde cousins that Lois is always giving him hell for. XD

Rachel should work perfectly fine, then. Sorry, sweetheart. We had that little problem with Barbara and Barbara earlier in the series.Thank God one of them goes by Babette! *LOL, hugs both*

Yeah, that was subtle, huh? *snort* And don't forget the Troupes' two Kats. ;)

That's a lot of characters. I'm won't be surprised if you missed any at 4:30 am. Can you even think at that time? I always hit the wall at about that time and need either caffeine or sugar to boost my energy.

I myself slept until 3:30 today, while Anissa got up early for once. 'Nuff said. ;)

This list is awesome! Humm! Do you know someone else named Babette?! Or could it be?? *scurries away* Thanks so much for putting this together.
Lois: Lana Talk To Mekalalanekent on September 18th, 2007 09:40 pm (UTC)
Nope, that was you! I can't believe you didn't know that!

And you're welcome. We've been planning to do that for a while. It's like the timeline. That's about half-done. Got to get enough time aside to finish it.

Color me a ninny! I can't believe I didn't pick up on that. I only recently started using the nckname 'Babette,' so it just slipped right by me. Meh! Thanks for the nod!

I used it back when you were reviewing at BT, love. It was a while back, so don't beat yourself up. *kiss*

I love you guys...that's all I wanted to say...and I loved being Nurse Tage. You have fulfilled all my hopes and dreams :D I can die peacefully now!!!

*big hugs*
Lois: Kal-Elkalalanekent on September 18th, 2007 09:41 pm (UTC)
...that I've seen Superman in the all-together under the propriety of a sheet. *snort* Love you, too, Tage! Miss you!

"Leueen"?! That's disgusting.

And I love Gazeera! I'd get a lizard just to name something that, lol
Lois: Lois Perplexedkalalanekent on September 18th, 2007 09:44 pm (UTC)
I know, right? I never liked the spelling and when Anissa spelled it wrong, we just went with it. Besides, I think I like the way we've expanded the character, anyway.

And if you like Gazeera, we'll have more of his scaley little behind when they get home. There is still a scene in the works that we refer to as Lois Lane versus Godzilla, Round Two. ;)

Hee hee!!!! ^_^ I'd almost forgotten about Dr. Saavikam. :p

I have a list of characters in Aftermath, too, but haven't put it on the comp. yet. Oy, it's gonna be long. O_o
Lois: Loiskalalanekent on September 18th, 2007 10:37 pm (UTC)
I know! Just compiling this one was difficult and I just know we're missing a few. Oh, Dr. Saavikam will make a couple of more appearances before we're done.
