Luma Lynai is a minor fictional character in the DC Universe. The character first appeared in "Action Comics" No. 289 (June 1962), in the story "Superman's Super Courtship!", she is one of the many women in the DC Universe to use the alias Superwoman.

Fictional character biography

In "Superman's Super Courtship", Supergirl tries to find a mate for the lonely Superman. After match-making attempts with Helen of Troy and an adult Saturn Girl fail, Supergirl uses the computer in the Fortress of Solitude and discovers a super-powered woman on the distant planet of Staryl named Luma Lynai. Superman flies to Staryl and the two heroes immediately fall in love. Unfortunately, Superman discovers that Luma Lynai's powers only work under the rays of an orange sun; Earth's yellow rays are as deadly to her as kryptonite is to Superman. Luma, realizing that Earth needs Superman, tells him he must leave.

In a later reprint of the story, Luma's home star is shown as being blue, since at the time of the reprint Superman's powers were now being depicted as much weaker under an orange sun.

Luma Lynai appears in "Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane" #97 (November 1968), along with Lori Lemaris and Lyla Lerrol. The story eventually reveals that the three women are actually aliens disguised as Superman's "L.L." initialled past loves.
