Manic Monday Double Bonus--Woman Of Steel, Man Of Kleenex?!?

Linda Lee Danvers' boyfriend, Gary Sparks, is a two-timing rat, and she catches him:

So Linda makes the incredibly low self-esteem decision to pursue his love in a different manner:

Oh, Linda...

But it does work, as...

Guys, that really is how people proposed in the 1960s!! Just ask your parents!!

But wisely, even though she said yes, Kara still doesn't really trust Gary. So she uses the "Prognosticon," a "computer-predictor" she invented (!), to view their future life. Spoiler alert: Not good.

Gee, what a surprise.

So, "conning" him into breaking the engagement doesn't count as breaking your promise? Oh, those loose Kryptonian ethics!

And Kara's plan to "con" Gary? Multiple super-powered sexual assaults!!

It's fortunate that's as far as Kara had to go to convince him, if you know what I mean...

From Action Comics #370 (1968)

Acts like him too!
