|“||I see the end. The end of our potential. The end of our achievements. The end of our dreams. You are my nightmare.||„|
|~ Lex Luthor|
|“||Until now, I always thought I hated you as much as any one being could hate another! But I was wrong... until today, I didn't even know the meaning of the word! I'm coming for you, Superman... and I have only just begun to hate!||„|
|~ Lex Luthor|
Lex Luthor, since his first appearance, has been the most consistent adversary of Superman. His origins have varied somewhat, from the son of an abusive household to the childhood friend of a young Clark Kent, but upon reaching the city of Metropolis, he used his genius intellect and scientific knowledge to become a highly corrupt businessman, and eventually the head of his own corporation, secure in his position as one of the most powerful men in the world.
When Superman arrived on the scene, however, he became consumed by jealousy and vindictiveness and decided to kill the alien to resume his place at the top. Luthor has quested from the depths of Hell to the highest seat of office to beyond the furthest stars to find some way to kill Superman, even to the point of selling his soul. Though he favors more intellectual machinations, he has designed a warsuit to confront Superman on physical terms.
