A lost poem written by Vladimir Nabokov about Superman — in which the Man of Steel envisions a tragic wedding night with Lois Lane and longs to be a mortal man — has been published for the first time. Written in June 1942 and rejected by the New Yorker , " The Man of To-morrow's Lament " was penned two years after Nabokov emigrated from Russia to the U.S., with the Lolita author focusing on the American cultural icon — he read the comics to his 8-year-old son — and jumping into one of the biggest debates in comic book-dom: Whether or not Clark Kent and Lois Lane could have a sexual relationship. In the poem, Clark Kent ruminates that while he loves Lois Lane, "marriage would be murder on my part," as his wedding night coitus with Lois would likely result in her death, as well as the destruction of both the big hotel they're staying in and "the smaller one next door."
