Eve Teschmacher is a supporting antagonist from the Superman film series, appearing in the first two Superman films. She is the girlfriend and assistant of Lex Luthor. Despite this, she has feelings for Superman, and later saves him from drowning after Luthor outsmarts him with kryptonite.

She was portrayed by Valerie Perrine.



In Superman, Eve worked with Lex during his scheme to use two nuclear missiles in order to destroy much of western California in order to create valuable real estate on the east side of the San Andreas Fault. However, Luthor had the second one programmed to head toward the town where Eve's mother lived. Fearing for her mother's life, Eve rescued Superman from drowning when he had Kryptonite on a chain wrapped around his neck, with the promise that he would rescue her mother first. Prior to his departure from Luthor's underground hideout, Eve gave Superman a kiss.

Superman II

In Superman II, Eve helped Luthor escape prison by rescuing him in a hot air balloon. Eve then flew the hot air balloon to the Fortress of Solitude, where Lex learns of Zod, Ursa, and Non, three Kryptonian criminals trapped in the Phantom Zone that, should they be freed from it, would have the same level of powers that Superman has.
