One ironic and unique thought that came into my mind was a “what if” moment about Lex Luthor doing what Superman couldn’t.
Could Superman’s greatest enemy manage to do a much better job at saving the world?
Over past few months of researching Lex’s unique history, I’ve noticed how this guy had numerous opportunities to do not only what was right, but capable of doing something that the man of Steel couldn’t do himself. If it’s one thing that I’m quite sure of, is that I can clearly view Lex Corp not only finding the cure for cancer, but also solving numerous world crises such as world hunger, poverty, and much more that Lex chooses to ignore because of his obsession to be the top man within Metropolis and to see Superman squashed beneath his heel. Now I know that Lex isn’t the criminal mastermind because of Superman as I once believed, seeing how he’s still a devious and selfish man before encountering the Man of Steel. But it’s the strong fact that a man like Lex Luthor could possibly be the icon not only within Metropolis, but within the world as well that surpasses him beyond all costumed heroes if his mind wasn’t so clouded with jealousy, hatred, and selfishness.
Of course Lex Luthor isn’t physically better than the Man of Steel, but knowing what opportunities there are for Lex Luthor to fully reach his goals of being the better hero than Superman or any other costumed hero can possibly label a man like Lex Luthor as being the better man than Superman. What’s funny, is that this is something I see within Superman’s character as well, that the connection he has with Luthor isn’t hatred, but pity for not taking the opportunity to do what’s right. For Superman, saving people and the world isn’t some petty competition or a title, but something that needs to be done. So with Lex here lacking to focus on doing what’s right, it only took Superman to fly in and capture the fumbling ball. And after seeing a super-powered individual doing something ten-times better, this is when we get introduced to the long and enduring dispute between both Luthor and Superman.
It's just the strong and very powerful theory that Luthor has all the tools to make this happen and he only chooses to use them in the wrong ways. With equipment and resources that possibly could help defend this world from universal threats, with possibilities of making the world a much more advance and peaceful enviroment, to cure diseases, world hunger, poverty, crime, and to possibly create a utopia like world where there possibly wouldn't be any war among nations or any other crises all thanks to Lex Corp and the Justice League that follows Luthors steps.
......and Luthor hasn't thought about any of this because he must be the Man of Steel within Metropolis.
