Lex Luthor was portrayed as a playable character in the crossover video game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

In the story, Lex was first working with Darkseid while ensuring humanity survived. When the Apokolips ruler was presumed killed, Superman turned the Lexcorp owner to the authorities. After escaping, Lex went to the Special Forces base and found their portal technology, but was forced to the base's jail by Jax.

He and Catwoman break out and head for Oa. There, Green Lantern defeats Lex before deciding to work with him. In his ending, Lex Luthor had kept stolen Special Forces data to breach the barrier that kept the two worlds separated, forming a Deadly Alliance with Quan Chi.

He was voiced by Joe Thomas.

Now the Earth is doomed, and people say I'M the villain!
~ Lex Luthor to Superman

Alexander Joseph Luthor, also known as simply Lex Luthor, is the secondary antagonist of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. He is the archenemy of Superman and the DC equivalent of Jax Briggs.

Story Mode

After Darkseid was defeated by Superman, Lex Luthor was arrested shortly after by the Man of Steel as being one of Darkseid's accomplices. As Luthor was arrested, Darkseid attempted to escape through a boom tube, but with no prevail, as Superman blasted him with his Heat Vision, causing Darkseid and Shao Kahn (who was just blasted by Raiden at the same time) to merge and form Dark Kahn.

Shortly after, the Justice League turned their attention to the potential uprising of Darkseid as "invaders" (Mortal Kombat characters) start showing up. Meanwhile, Luthor somehow escapes from prison and leads a small group of villains, consisting of Catwoman, Joker, and Deathstroke.

Eventually, as Darkseid's uprising grows, Luthor's posse is forced to join forces with the Justice League. They eventually succeed in defeating Darkseid's "Forces" (Mortal Kombat Characters) and defeat Darkseid, who was merged with Shao Kahn.


  • Lex Luthor's ending is a reference to the Deadly Alliance, as he teams up with Quan Chi.
  • Luthor shares many moves with Sektor, specifically the flame thrower and the missiles.
