    He can claim "No no, I'm a GOOD alien, I wasn't with those BAD aliens" all he wants, but he'd be hard pressed to be trusted without a few years of cred built up first.
    You are Lex Luthor.

    That is basically his "public" reasoning for all his actions against superman. Look what Superman could do, how could we trust him.

    As stated, I doubt we go into this movie and Superman has not been seen since the last movie. He will have been doing good deeds, much like all the good deeds he had been doing before doning the cape.

    Except that's NOT Luthors real reasoning for hating on Superman.

    It's better than punching the guy through a wall. But I kind of prefer this not PERFECT Superman. He was raised as Human, its unreasonable to expect him to not ever do something petty like that Semi thing.

    Come to think of it, he's really more like Godzilla. Only without the excuse of being of a gigantic unbridled monster.

    Didn't Godzilla cause less property damage and civilian death usually?

    Yet he had the maturity to let his father die to satisfy his dad's martyr complex?

    How does Luthor provide threat against Superman?
    I know he's a hugely wealthy, smart, sly villain, gets Krypton all the time, but I just don't see the threat with this character (never read the comics).
    Does he scheme against Superman and have an army of royal henchmen to gang on him? Because that doesn't really work...
    Superman being a Kryptonian, he would be a complete retard by Kryptonian standards for him to be less intelligent than Luthor.

    Not to mention the physical prowess. One glance and Lex is a toast.

    Lex is a supergenius with a fortune behind him, and Supes doesn't kill people. Its not about a physical contest between those two. its about integrity and public perception and who is right. (Except when Lex has power armor, and thats almost always dumb.)

    The big problem with Luthor is he was generic supervillain in the 70's when the first movie and Superfriends was made, so that's sort of what most people still carry with them as their image of him. But after Crisis he became a buisnessman, and is far, far more interesting as a result.

    So he doesn't go fist to fist against Superman?
    Yeah he is certainly intriguing but I'm not so sure how he will be a villaim that can challenge Superman in a blockbuster film.

    So is Lex umm well liked by the public?
    So much as to be super wealthy and still get away from trying to get rid of Superman?

    Rather than the comics, I'd try to watch some of the animated DC movies or Superman the animated series/Justice League. Luthor is one of the biggest businessmen, also the smartest, has his hand in every shady or violent enterprise and has the whole world fooled or bought.



    This is a sampling sure somewhat out of context, but it shows off some of his great moments.

    Truth. Superman should have his faults, but he shouldn't be Emo Boy/Ruthless Jerk either.

    Oh heck, we all know how the Superman and Batman encounter should go.

    I knew something was seriously wrong with the movie when Superman saved people in the first five minutes. This was supposed to be his origin story, it should have been a big moment later down the line instead of casually happening in the beginning of the movie.

    Wasn't Luthor's real reason for hating Superman because he blamed Superman for losing his hair?

    In the 50's maybe. Hasn't been that petty for a long time.
