“Noel Neill is a living legend,” said Matt Solberg, Convention Director. “Anyone who loves Superman knows who Lois Lane is, and Noel Neill is Lois Lane.”

Neill played the role of Lois Lane for over ten years. Later on, she would continue to appear in Superman productions, playing roles such as Lois Lane’s mother in the 1978 Superman, and had a cameo as of dying widow Gertrude Vanderworth in the more recent Superman Returns.

“Phoenix Comicon can’t wait to present Noel Neill,” said Kate Davids, Communication Manager. “She’s an integral part of Superman’s history, and it will be fantastic to see her in Phoenix.”
