In Superman: Birthright, it starts out with him wanting to contact aliens, possibly as he believes himself to be to good for humanity ("...Only sane inmate of Asylum Earth."). Once he finds one (Superman, obviously), he's humiliated by said alien, and so his vendetta begins.
If I understood it correctly.
" So his goal is to kill Superman? I thought it was to become a GOD or take over the world? "Maybe a combination. He wants revenge on Superman, for taking Lex's self-appointed title as the "savior of humanity" (Lex has claimed, possibly on several occasions, that he'd be able to cure cancer for instance, if given enough time and effort). At the same time, in Superman: Birthright, he mentions that he wants to be "leader".
" Who is a better villian though Ras Al Ghoul or Lex Luthor? Have the two men ever met? "Well.. Ra's faces a peak human..
Lex faces a powerhouse who has defeated world threats.
But in they are the best in their specific fields
Luthor just likes to be worship and to be seen as a leader.

But who is better? What Ras want a peaceful world?
i believe the whole thing is is that he had goals to cure the sick rid the worlds need of fosssil fuels and take the world in to the next century making it a better place for all, all while getting his name put in the history books as the greatest man that has ever lived. He wanted to use his genius for good and during one of his big break throughs and tests (that had to do with the airplane Lois was on) the test malfunctioned taking down the plane. Thats where superman comes in and catchs the plane saving everyone on board, making Lex look like a mear normal human being, it hurt lex's ego and from then on anything lex created would never compare to the flying man that saves people and asks for nothing in return. Lex from then on devotes his life and knowledge to ruining the worlds image of superman (americas boyscout) and even killing superman for screwing up Lex's life (making him look dumb by Lex's standards;which is the average person) and forever making Lex envious of Superman for not sharing his abilities so everyone can be as strong and great as superman.
