" What happens if illegal work is slow for Lex? It's a tough economy, super villians aren't going to be able to by that extra henchman a plasma tetrion gun he needs. "recession or not crime always pays...
That would require Lex being willing to sell since he always maintains a controlling interest

I'm pretty sure I've seen in a Batman Superman crossover how Lex was p!$$3d that he was unable to Match Bruce Wayne's bid on three previous occasions (after having lost to him yet again) and expressing so to Bruce at a socialite function with some vain threat that he might have to acquire Wayne Enterprises. Bruce's response was the customary yawn and or I might just buy every one of your suppliers for every industry and close the doors to you. Lex soon pulled his head in.
" Actually, it has already been confirmed in an issue of Batman/Superman that Bruce's wealth exceeded Lex's. EDIT: It was Superman/Batman #6 (The Public Enemies/President Luthor arc). "
Maybe I should just read an entire thread b4 responding half cocked.
theyve been reasonably even for a number of years.. due only to the Wayne enterprises has been around for a LONG time in terms of real estate, steel & shipping..while L Corps been around for arounnnd 10 15 yrs tops.. (obv alotta that growth is attributed to illegal or unscrupulous revenue streams..but still lol) so to even COMPETE with a company that is (apparently) an American Dynasty stretching back since the turn of the century &equalling in realistic terms to a combination of Slim Helu, Gates &Buffets companies..(with a little rockerfeller thrown in) is Amazing.
In terms of sheer holdings and diversity Wayne is off the charts.. whereas in terms of Rapid growth and tech innovation Luthers co. has a slight edge..but in an atypical new money vs old money ...Waynes old money with new age savvy beats Luthers new money hands down every time
