normal human weaknesses
Reporter at the Daily Planet, hired by Franklin Stern to write a conservative opinion column (MOT #6). He is decidedly right wing, and thus often at odds with Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Perry White. Although Armstrong jumps to conclusions, we've seen that he honestly believes his opinions, even when they are anti-Superman. He wrote a column proclaiming Superman a "super-menace" when Superman's powers changed (MOS #67) and a column defending Luthor's right to a fair trial (SUP #126). One of the few reporters not fired when Luthor bought the Daily Planet, he is currently working for LexCom. He is very protective of his daughter Ashbury.
