Lex Luthor first appeared in in Action Comics #23 and was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Originally a pulp magazine-inspired mad scientist known only by his surname, he was later rewritten as Lex Luthor, an inventor and former friend of Superboy. After losing his hair in a laboratory accident, Luthor holds Superboy (and later Superman) responsible and turns to a life of crime. Following the 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths, Lex Luthor was re-introduced as a Machiavellian industrialist and white-collar criminal, even briefly serving as President of the United States. In recent years, various Writers have revised Lex Luthor's classic origin from the 1970's, though the canonicity of these stories is uncertain.

Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe


Injustice: Gods Among Us

I never followed the Superman series (any of them), so I don't have much to say about baldy here. I'll assume he's a really cool villain in the comics, but as a fighting game character, his debut in MK VS DC was so-so at best. I'm sure I'd appreciate the character a bit more if I followed the Superman series, but from my "fighting game connoisseur" point of view, he's kinda boring to me.

His appearance in Injustice was definitely a hell of alot better than his MK VS DC incarnation. There's a lot of cool things about his Injustice moveset, even though some of his animations are kinda sketchy. On a side note, I think his in-game fighting attire is pretty... silly. He spent all that time designing that high-tech suit of badass armor... but forgot... a helmet. I mean seriously, his shiny bald head popping out of that armor is just hilariously stupid to me. In theory, all he needs to do is fall forward on his face, or get shot in the head... and he's dead. Yep, you're some genius, Lex Luthor. lol.
