Alexander Joseph 'Lex' Luthor (DC)(Post Crisis)

Search for 'Alexander Joseph 'Lex' Luthor (DC)(Post Crisis)' on Amazon

The modern version of Lex Luthor is still brilliant, but his business acumen and political savvy is emphasized to a much greater degree than it ever was. If it can be said that John Byrne's revamp of Superman in 1986 has largely been recanted by 2005, his new spin on Luthor has been celebrated and emphasized by subsequent writers. The "new" Lex Luthor is a multi-layered threat to the Man of Steel, and, indeed, the whole of the DCU. It is probably no exaggeration to say that Lex Luthor--having now been head of the DCU's single most powerful corporation, leader of several crime syndicates, and President of the United States--has appeared in or influenced events in just about every super hero title that DC has put out since 1986.

This version of the character is quite unlike the previous version in that (arguably until 2004) very few ordinary people in the DCU had any notion that he was evil. Indeed, he was able to portray himself as a friend of the people, get elected, have generally high approval ratings, and even convince Clark Kent's boyhood pal, Pete Ross, to become his Vice President.
