LOIS!!!

It just broke that Margot Kidder has passed away at the age of 69.

Kidder was Reeve's Lois...and very much my generation's Lois Lane. She was definitely the Lois I first saw as a child and despite echoes of hypnotic kisses and turning back time by flying around the planet very quickly in reverse direction (I don't want science in my supers, but...) her face is still what I see when I think of Lois Lane (not to knock the various actors cast since).

She was in numerous other critically acclaimed films, but fought the demons of bipolar disorder and paranoia for much of her life, including faking her death and hacking off her hair.

(Her death was not related to mental illness but was apparently from complications of influenza).
