You know what happens when you take on Lex Luthor? The same thing that's gonna happen to Superman!

But with him around you're a parody of a man. A duller, a cripple. Next to Superman, even Lex Luthor's greatness is overshadowed!

Alexander Joseph Luthor is a supervillain appearing in comics published by DC Comics.

Background

Lex Luthor was born and raised in the poverty stricken area of Metropolis called the Suicide Slum, raised by abusive parents, with the desire to better himself. As a teenager, one night, he dismantled the breaks in his parent's car, causing them to die in a car crash. Lex then used his parent's life insurance to get himself out of the Suicide Slum and start his own business, known as LexCorp, which practically ran all of Metropolis. Though everything changed once the Man of Steel arrived. Lex saw Superman as a threat to humanity, fearing that humanity would grow too reliant on this alien savior and stop thinking for themselves. Despite being only human, Lex dedicated his life to removing Superman from the equation, even going as far as to form his own organization of supervillains known as the Legion of Doom.

Powers & Abilities

  • Basic Hand-to-Hand Combat: Lex was trained by personal Amazon fighting instructors, though they only consider him sub-par at best. He managed to beat Nightwing in a fight, though only because he drugged him beforehand.

Equipment

  • Kryptonite: Lex always keeps a stash handy should he find himself face to face with Superman.
  • Warsuit: Lex's warsuit is a modified version of battle armor forged in Apokolips. The suit is designed to be on par with Superman, and is durable enough to take him on. The suit and it's weapons are fueled by Kryptonie, which gives him a better advantage over Superman.
    • Flight
    • Force Field: The suit is completely surrounded by an invisible force field that increases it's defenses, and protects Lex's exposed head.
    • Energy Projection: Fueled by Kryptonite.

    • Kryptonite Energy Spikes: Under armor of the right arm.

Weaknesses

  • Arrogance: Lex is very full of himself and is unable to understand his opponents. Even after being horribly disfigured and damaged, Lex still refused Superman's help out of his own stubbornness.
  • Weapon Power: Lex's warsuit's arsenal is all fueled by Kryptonite, allowing him to have an advantage against Kryptonians. Though against other opponents, these weapons would only do normal damage or not be as effective.
  • Only Human: Without the warsuit, he isn't really capable of much, though he can still outsmart his opponents.
