Villain Overview

Maybe not the Lex you know. The multiverse is a way of lining fates. I am here for you. (Clark: Whoever you are, I'm just a guy working on his farm.) You will always be my greatest enemy on any earth. It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this earth, Clark Kent... is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses.
~ Lex Luthor confronting Earth-167 Clark Kent.
I was rooting for you, Lena. But, I have to agree. Humanity can't be fixed. They need to be controlled. Leviathan may be our biggest threat, but they were right about one thing. Humanity needs a firm hand to guide it. To lead it. And not some arrogant alien. It needs to be human.
~ Lex Luthor

Lex Luthor is a major antagonist in the TV series Supergirl, serving as an unseen antagonist in Season 2, one of the two main antagonists (along with Agent Liberty) of Season 4, a major antagonist in Season 5 and the main antagonist in the first episodes in Season 6. He also appears in the crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths as a supporting character.

He is the former CEO of Luthor Corp (later L-Corp), the archenemy of both Superman and Supergirl, as well as the half-brother of Lena Luthor, and the son of Lillian Luthor. He is obsessed with destroying Superman by any means necessary as well as removing all aliens on Earth to prove himself as the superior individual.

He is portrayed by Jon Cryer, who also voiced Freakshow in Danny Phantom and ironically portrayed Lenny Luthor, the nephew of Gene Hackman's version of Luther in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

Personality

Narcissist, sociopath, evil genius: there are a lot of ways to describe Lex Luthor. But I find douchebag to be the most descriptive.
~ Ryan Choi

Like most incarnations of DC, Lex is a human supremacist who genuinely believes his crusade against aliens to be a righteous one, as he committed unspeakable acts in his attempt to protect Earth from alien invaders, also a narcissist and a sociopath, with a complete lack of awareness, empathy, and remorse for their actions.

According to Lena, Lex has always been a lunatic and because of this is willing to do anything or hurt anyone to achieve his goals. He schemes, manipulates, tortures, and kills without principles or mercy for his victims. Infamous for his extreme callousness towards the well-being of others as, despite claiming that he wants the best for humanity, he displayed no qualms about murdering millions in order to accomplish his goals, considering himself the real "Man of Tomorrow" being so misguided in said beliefs that he was sure, in the end, people would understand and thank him for his nefarious actions.

But, the difference between their incarnations, is that Lex was once Clark Kent's best friend (under the personality of Superman) as the two initially tried to work together to repel the threat of alien invasions, but their methods were much more cruel than Clark's, despite the fact that Kal-El did his best to trust Lex, defending him from the accusations of others and continuing to give him various opportunities to atone for his wrongdoings; The two eventually got into a fight and became bitter enemies once the Paragon realized their true nature.

For his part, Lex came to believe that the Superman was the cause of the alien attacks, prompting him to declare war on Superman, committing unspeakable crimes in his relentless crusade to end the Kryptonian. Lex is ruthless not only towards aliens and humans in general, but also towards members of his own family.Due to Lex's profound upheaval, he is unable to form any real bond with those around him and will do anything to complete his goals.

Despite Lex's intelligent and calculating traits, he is extremely arrogant to the point of deluding himself, as Lex believes himself to be the most intelligent individual on the entire planet, completely ignoring the fact that Clark (under the personality of Superman) is a little smarter. that he; which ultimately led to his downfall at the hands of the Kryptonian, even after being defeated by Clark, he still believes himself wiser than the latter; a sign that Lex is not only unable to recognize his mistakes, but is also incapable of learning from them.

Powers and Abilities

  • Lexosuit Applications: Lex Luthor has built himself a technologically advanced exoskeleton which he uses during his crusade against Kryptonians and other extraterrestrials. While wearing the Lexosuit, Lex displays a strong mastery of its combat functions and weapons usage, when compared to other uses of his Lexosuit. The exoskeleton has the power to materialize and de-materialize on him upon his command. The Lexosuit greatly enhances his physical strength and resilience to the point where he can go toe-to-toe against solar-powered Kryptonians. The Lexosuit even possesses onboard technology which projects Kryptonite-based energy beams and can manifest energy shields.
  • Harun-El Mutation/Enhanced Physiology (formerly): The Harun-El serum he injected himself with has given Lex great superhuman physical prowess.Lex could levitate by using his flight abilities and block a punch from Supergirl without suffering damage. He was able to physically block Supergirl's punch, lift the entire Daily Planet globe and smash it down on Supergirl. The Harun-El serum he injects himself with has even granted Lex the power to regenerate from his failing health and even cure his self-inflicted cancer and even save Red Daughter from Harun-El withdrawal, by giving the cure to her through a blood transfusion. He lost these abilities when Lena took the Harun-El out of his system with an anti-serum.
  • Genius-level Intellect/Master tactician/Leader: Lex's primary asset is his astounding genius-level intellect, which even amongst the Luthor Family is unrivaled. Lex Luthor has passed a genius-level intellect from a young age, making him a child prodigy during his youth. Lex was personally trained in playing chess by a chess grandmaster named Anatoly Karpov, which he mastered enough to transfer the knowledge of checkmate to even dimwitted prison inmates. An extremely skilled tactician capable of devising extremely complex plans that are backed up further with long term plans. Lex was eventually able to successfully escape his imprisonment.
    • Master scientist: An extraordinary scientist, Lex is a genius expert on multiple scientific fields such as bio-engineering and biology. He was capable of injecting himself with Green Kryptonite and understanding the Harun-El much faster than Lena did. His mastery of extraterrestrials, especially Kryptonians, is even acknowledged by the governments of the world, is perhaps the greatest expert in the world.
    • Master Engineer: Lex is a brilliant inventor with great specialization in multiple fields of engineering that Lena admits to surpass hers, being able to design many sophisticated devices such as an "earthquake machine" that triggered a fault line in California, a device to turn Earth's sunlight red, a warsuit to argument his physical attributes, and secret computer room inside his cell. He is also a master computer programmer, as he was able to turn his watch into a miniaturized computer with which he could seamlessly take over multiple complex devices.
    • Master of Deception/Manipulator: Lex is an extremely skilled manipulator, capable of manipulating and deceiving others, Lex was able to first deceive Superman for years of his true nature and then stalemate him in their war for an extremely prolonged time before ultimately getting outsmarted and imprisoned.
    • Mentoring Capabilities: Lex is a capable teacher and has even spent his prison sentence, mentoring prison inmates to pass on some level of intelligence to them, particularly in playing chess. Lex even mentored red Daughter by sending her books and teaching her chess as well as honing her accent to speak English in a more Americanized accent.
    • Miscellaneous Abilities: In addition to Lex's scientific and tactician abilities, he also possesses other remarkable intellectual skills. He is an exceptional businessman, with his success in maintaining Luthor Corp's standing as a multi-billionaire corporation being famous throughout the world, and was able to continue this up until his arrest while also engaging in war with Superman with no problems at all. While not known to have either an M.D or doctorate, Lex was a sufficiently knowledgeable and skilled medic to be able to correctly diagnose his condition and heal himself. Lex speaks a variety of languages, particularly English, Latin, Kaznian, Russian, and has even managed to master Kryptonese. Lex also has incredible artistic skills, which he used during his prison sentence to sculpt impressive images on the walls to pass the time due to boredom, with him even noting painting was a mere geometry to him.
  • Network: Even after Lex's incarceration into a maximum-security prison, he has somehow maintained his dense network of commodities, assets, influence, information and connections throughout the world. He was able to arrange for issuing assassination contracts and even manipulated the government to give his sister a position within the D.E.O..

Quotes

List of Quotes by Lex Luthor
He is not a man! I was the Man of Tomorrow! Not him! NOT! HIM!
~ Lex angrily expressing his hatred of Superman to his sister Lena prior to his arrest.
Superman made me do it. This is a paradigm shift. Aliens are among us. And for the rest of human history, there will only ever be "before Superman" and "after". I am protecting mankind from an extinction event. And if this pearl-clutching jury of my... peers... wants to put me behind bars for it, they are welcome to try. But know this. I will always have my thumb on the scales.
~ Lex Luthor's statement to the court trying to pin his actions on Superman.
Unnamed Judge: Alexander Joseph Luthor, you've been found guilty on all counts and will serve 31 consecutive life sentences. [she begins coughing and choking]
Lex Luthor: Maybe we should make it 32.
~ Lex Luthor's conviction as he poisons everyone in court.
Prison is the greatest alibi ever created.
~ Lex on why he chooses to stay in jail between his leaves.
Lex and Lena Luthor, teaming up to save Superman's best pal. What would Mother think?
~ Lex Luthor working together Lena Luthor to save Jimmy Olsen.
Supergirl: You have powers?
Lex Luthor: I have powers.

How do you think I did it? I'm Lex Luthor.
~ Lex to Supergirl
Can you believe it, sis? Three Luthors in the Oval Office. Only in America.
~ Lex Luthor to his family.
Your friends have been lying to you from the start. Your boyfriend, Jimmy. Alex. J'onn. That little alien runt, Brainy. Even your own mother. They mocked you, humiliated you, betrayed you. Every... last... one. Denial's a very powerful thing, isn't it? It's been standing right in front of you all this time and you chose not to see it. Kara Danvers is... Supergirl. I'm about to die, but at least I lived without ever being a fool. You're left with no one and nothing.
~ Lex's last words to Lena before his death just as he reveals Supergirl's identity to her.
Lex Luthor: Checkmate, again. Finally, you've returned. I don't know if anybody's told you this but the Feng Shui of this place it's stale.
Monitor: I brought you back because the universe will need a mind like yours.
Lex Luthor: Someone who can checkmate anyone?
Monitor: Time has come for you to fulfill your destiny, Lex Luthor, you could now become the hero that you longed to be.
Lex Luthor: I've always been the hero. Happy to help, but first we have to discuss my sister.
~ Lex Luthor and the Monitor making a deal.
Lex Luthor: Maybe not the Lex you know. The multiverse is a way of lining fates. I am here for you.
Clark Kent (Earth-167): Whoever you are, I'm just a guy working on his farm.
Lex Luthor: You will always be my greatest enemy on any earth. It's written in the stars and in this book, or I wouldn't know that on this earth, Clark Kent... is Superman. Where I come from, that would be ridiculous. He can't see past his glasses.
~ Lex Luthor confronting Earth-167 Clark Kent.
Well, I held the Book of Destiny and I saw you seven Paragons due to be stranded at the Vanishing Point and I thought destiny could use a little a rewrite... So, what do we do now?
~ Lex making himself a Paragon to save his life but kill the Superman of Earth-96.
Supergirl: You know what, whatever it is you're planning, I'm gonna figure it out and I'm gonna stop you
Lex Luthor: I doubt that. In a contest of mind over muscle, mind wins every time, but here, let me make it easy for you. Ask me what I'm up to. Go ahead.
Supergirl: Alright, what are you up to, Lex
Lex Luthor: Universal domination, of course.
~ Lex arrogantly revealing what he's up to.
Oh; I probably should've mentioned that I gave myself a few upgrades when I checked the Book of Destiny out of the library.
~ Lex Luthor giving himself power from the Book of Destiny.
You just ruined a perfectly good bad guy plan. You know that, new guy?
~ Lex Luthor after Ryan Choi and Supergirl ruined his plans.
Idiots! If anyone is gonna take over the universe, it's gonna to be me!
~ Lex fighting alongside the Paragons and destroying the Shadow Demons.
I didn't just save the world. I made a new one.
~ Lex Luthor on his life Post-Crisis.
Lex Luthor: You should have known the moment you decided to steal from a Kryptonian that Non Nocere was doomed. Kara Danvers will never see things your way. She'll always work against you.
Lena Luthor: Oh, right, so you'll be my friend now?
Lex Luthor: The world is ours now, Lena. You don't need a robot, and you don't need friends. You need a partner. Imagine what we could accomplish together. Why not give it a go?
~ Lex manipulating Lena with kindness into doing him.
Lena Luthor: You think this is your world now? You were just a puppet on a string for Leviathan before. What makes you think this time will be any different?
Lex Luthor: What the hell is Leviathan?
~ Lena Luthor reveals to Lex Luthor that his actions during the Human-Alien Crisis were a manipulation.
Lena Luthor: Will you truly be on your best behavior? No homicides?
Lex Luthor: No unnecessary homicides.
~ Lena to Lena.
Since I have been on this Earth, I have done nothing but 'protect and serve'. Judging me for the crimes of another Earth's Lex, now that's not fair, is it?
~ Lex Luthor to Supergirl about his past Earth self.
Work with me, and no home will be without Obsidian Platinum.
~ Lex offers his help to Gamemnae.
I was rooting for you, Lena. But, I have to agree. Humanity can't be fixed. They need to be controlled. Leviathan may be our biggest threat, but they were right about one thing. Humanity needs a firm hand to guide it. To lead it. And not some arrogant alien. It needs to be human.
~ Lex Luthor
HOW DARE YOU!? I gave you the world! Everything! I supported you! I sabotaged nothing, touched nothing! I set aside my own goals for you! (whispering) Because you needed to see your little project fail with your own eyes. To know the true depravity of humanity. To know that my way was the ONLY WAY!
~ Lex's villainous breakdown to Lena when she decides to abandon him and redeem herself.
You know, I pride myself on seeing things, connections where others only find coincidence.
~ Lex to Gamemnae
Lillian Luthor: Are you all right?
Lex Luthor: [crushing a metal tube] I'd say I'm more than all right.
~ Lex Luthor after infusing his DNA with Rama Khan, Sela, and Tezumak.
I told Lena that she had it right. Aliens shouldn't be Earth's saviors. A Luthor should. And now I will be. Leviathan is gone. Next, I'll get rid of the Kryptonian and all her friends, and then the non-believers. And once I fix this planet, I'll do what the Anti-Monitor failed to do. Fix every other planet in the universe.
~ Lex Luthor planning to fix the universe after receiving his new powers.
Lex Luthor: I knew that fixing this planet would require big moves that not everyone would appreciate. So I took the advantage of Lena's delivery system to make sure that everyone in VR would always appreciate me, no matter what I do.
Lillian Luthor: And what about the people who were not in VR? The ones unenlightened to the goodness that is my son?
Lex Luthor: The satellites I launched during the Obsidian world tour are armed with sonic weapons poised to obliterate the minds of anyone who didn't get the I Love Lexi upgrade. My satellites will be aligned to beam the kill frequency in about five hours.
Lillian Luthor: I assume I will be safe without being brainwashed to love you, since I already do.
Lex Luthor: Course, Mother. There's a special doohickey with your name on it.
Lillian Luthor: And your sister. You can't kill her, either.
Lex Luthor: Why not? She killed me first.
~ Lex intending to kill everyone who won't follow him including his sister, but Lillian won't let him.
Lillian Luthor: You aren't actually considering going to the Fortress, are you? Of course it's a trap.
Lex Luthor: Ah, no. I'm taking advantage of an opportunity. Supergirl hasn't seen new, improved me in action yet. I will destroy her.
Lillian Luthor: And while you're doing that, her friends will be busy undoing all your hard work.
Lex Luthor: With Supergirl out of the way, her friends will be easy targets. And even if they're successful at stopping my satellites, I'm a god, Mother. I'll have plenty of time to fix what they mess up. Oh, uh... and silver lining, if Supergirl's friends go behind my back and take down my satellites, you don't have to worry about Lena. See? It is time to celebrate.
~ Lex taking advantage of the opportunity to kill Supergirl and her friends.
Lex Luthor: What, no pleading, no hopeful pontification about how I can change and learn to be a better person... [blabbering] That's your problem, Kara. You, Leviathan, you're all the same. Pushing an agenda, trying to make humanity bend in ways that it just doesn't want to.
Supergirl: Yeah, like you tried to bend Lena, pitting her against me? You're a man with alien DNA coursing through him, thinking he knows what's best for this world. Sound familiar?
Lex Luthor: Sounds like someone willing to do whatever it takes to save humanity.
~ Lex taunting Supergirl.
I won.
~ Lex beating Supergirl by sending her to the Phantom Zone.
Hmm. About that... I'm not going anywhere near a cell. Unless you want me to reveal Supergirl's identity. She may be gone, but she still has an awful lot of enemies out there. It would be tragic if Mama Danvers or your lovely Kelly Olsen were to become the target of one of...
~ Lex threatening to reveal Supergirl's identity before being slugged by Lena.
Your damn right I can! I have always taken the big swings you never would but I supported you because you're a Luthor, I kept you close by my side but you were too timid and weak to do what was necessary. It takes guts to wield power and I wield my power to make the world better. So did I help develop Non Nocere? Yes. And yes, Non Nocere failed? Yes. Boohoo. It happens but instead of accepting that humbly, my sister blames me for it. It's no surprise this entire case has fallen apart, when every single charge hinges on unsubstantial hearsay of bitter woman like my sister and Eve. Woman mind you who could have committed these crimes themselves, as could any number of other suspects that the prosecutor has overlooked in her obsession with targeting me. And why? Because I am powerful. So let that be a lesson to you all. If you try to build a good life for yourself, there always somebody to tear you down and punish you for your greatness. But I accept you I am. I like power. And I have the guts to do something with it. I did not commit the crimes of which I stand accused. But if I had, who could blame? If push came to shove, you'd have done it. The defense rests.
~ Lex to Lena and the jury at his trial.

Trivia

  • Luthor's previous friendship with Superman mirrors the same relationship his counterpart had with him in the Smallville series.
    • Interestingly, Lex would go on to try and kill the Smallville's version of Superman during the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
  • Long before he appeared in the series, he was repeatedly referenced and mentioned by many heroes and villains, and he was best remembered for his crimes of terrorism against both human and alien life as well as his rivalry with Superman.
  • Although he only appeared in three episodes, Lex ultimately outranked Ben Lockwood, the Children of Liberty, Red Daughter and President Phil Baker as the true main antagonist of Season 4 when it was revealed that they were pawns in his plan the entire season.
    • Lex was also behind the formation of the Children Of Liberty and turning Ben Lockwood into Agent Liberty through Mercy and Otis Graves.
  • He also knows Kara Danvers is Supergirl, which he later uses to his advantage. During the season finale, he revealed this information to Lena just before his death, ultimately driving a wedge between the two best friends. But in the Season 5 finale, Lena and Kara will reconcile, becoming best friends again and Lex's plan will fail. In the Season 6 premiere, Lena erases Lex's memory as well as Lillian Luthor and Otis Graves about Supergirl's identity to protect her friend.
  • When betraying and destroying the Kaznian army during the Season 4 finale, Lex is singing "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, which also played during the flashback of his trial.
  • There were only two archnemesis that ever got to Lex Luthor. The first one is Superman and the second one is Batman.
