    I'm not much of a DC guy, but wasn't Clark forever tossing corny one-liners to Lois and Jimmy?

Yeah, I've been thinking about Superman from the perspective of our discussion here. Certainly the classic Adventures of Superman television series had plenty of humor inserted into the melodrama. I highly recommend the first season of that show. Each successive season was more juvenile than the one before it, but the first season was reminiscent of the radio show, and truly was some excellent television.

Bronze Age Superman would also have humor amidst the melodrama. I would actually say Bronze Age Superman was the most Marvel-ous comic DC ever published.

I often felt Bronze Age DC was consciously mimicking Marvel in a number of its titles.
