Contessa Erica Alexandra del Portenza

Little is known about the Contessa del Portenza. While some whisper that she is several hundred years old, these assertions have never been proven. The Contessa and Lex Luthor first met over two decades ago, each impressed with the other's business savvy. When Luthor was in hiding, the Contessa bought controlling interest in LexCorp International and named herself CEO, returning the company to prominence. Upon Luthor's return, the two rekindled their relationship and were married. Soon the Contessa became pregnant. Immediately following Lena Luthor's birth, Luthor held the Contessa prisoner at a private medical facility. Ever resourceful, the Contessa escaped and has been taunting Luthor ever since. Lena Luthor is not the Contessa's only child - she had son, Luca, in the 19th century whom battled Superman at the dawn of the 21st century. It's possible she may have other children scattered all over the world, each gifted with their mother's ruthlessness and mysterious gifts.
