@Hunter114: Did DC ever explicitly explain the reason for all the L.L.'s

@the referee: 
I don't think that DC have, but there was something in one of the Superman books about it, I believe it was Ruin Revealed, where Clark and Mxy are in a diner and they talk about "LL" having something to do with the Kryptonian lettering which closely resembles the symbol for infinity... other than that I think there were rumours about alliteration being helpful to remember characters' names and it also being a running gag.

@the referee: 
The comic was actually Ruin Revealed, not Riot Revealed...

@Hunter114:
If you count the Smallville series as pertinent to the Superman mythos, you can add Lex's dad 'Lionel Luthor' to the list.

There was also Lorraine Lewis who tried to kill Superman using two giant letter L's (no kidding).

@Primmaster64: Darkseid's real name is Uzur (may not be spelled correctly).

yh i hope dc explains why all of Clarks supporting characters have the initials L.L and why every young person Bruce comes in contact with has black hair and blue eyes.
