What is the most evil thing lex luthor has done.

#1 Posted by Leegar88 (85 posts) - - Show Bio

Major villians like Dr.doom, Red Skull, Darkseid, Joker, and Vandal Savage apart from the usual sinister plan do some pretty sick stuff. For selfish reasons and for fun. Luthor is a villian but he seems like the type with lines he won't cross. Don't get me wrong, he is evil and puts other people in jeopardy but villiany just seems like a 9 to 5 to him. I would almost say he is a lot like magneto, without the who revolutionary bit. I have not read a lot of his stories, so can someone tell me the most irredeemable thing he has done.

Hmm no slaughtering innocents, no rapeing lois lane, no killing sidekicks, no sacrificing the only person who loves him, etc. Just being a dick must be his main power.

lol wut. 
 
The guy has blown up cities, brainwashed people, tried to turn innocent people into superpowered slaves without them even knowing etc. etc. 
 
Magneto had a reason Lex just does it cause of his insecurities of an alien being better than humanity.

@SpiderMew: LOL. 
   

@Leegar88: In Superman Annual #5, he choked his fight (or maybe it was fencing) instructor to death, because in practice, she beat him, embarrassing him in front of someone who had come in the room. ...She came back to life, thanks to one of those Bloodlines aliens sucking on her spinal fluid and giving her powers, but still - he choked a woman to death.  At the time, they were writing Luthor to be a seriously demented woman-hater.

@Leegar88: Indeed.  He's had Mercy killed since then, and I think he did that himself, but I'm not certain - I havne't read that story.

How about the Rain of the Supermen. Where Lex Luthor gave a bunch of regular citizens superpowers. Lex made a fail safe where he could turn their powers on and off. While the would be heroes where showing off their power, Lex Luthor deactivated  their powers. The Everymen, as they were called, began to fall as their powers failed. One unfortunate hero tried to use his super strength to catch an overweight flier and was crushed. This is possibly the most evil thing he has ever done.

Depends, his actions during 52 were pretty despicable, most versions has him killing his parents, or how about the time he cured his sick sister just to do, then immediately make her worse because he's a royal b*stard

He's not mindless in his actions every "evil" act is done to prove that he's a WINNER

Lex Luthor is NOT EVEN CLOSE to being like Magneto! Magneto fights for an honarable cause, to protect an oppressed and hated group of people into acceptance. Infact, I consider him a misguided antihero. Luthor is just straight out evil. He's destroyed cities, turned innocent people into brainwashed slaves and even killed his own parents! If he did all those thing (minus parents part) for an honarable reason, I wouldn't consider him evil. In fact, I may consider him an antihero. But he does these things out of greed and power lust.

"Lex giveth, Lex taketh away."

He could easily cure his sister's disease, but leaves her in a wheelchair.

Pure EVIL.

Wiping out New Krypton was pretty bad.

A few issues after crisis he coerced an employee into sleeping with him. Might not be evil but it sure is creepy.

Around the same time, he also had Lana Lang kidnapped and beaten to gain info on Supes' identity. He also faked his death, pretended to be his son, seduced Matrix Supergirl and held back support for Superman during Doomsday's rampage.

What about the time, when Luthor paints Superman with gold paint

#29 Posted by AmazingWebHead (1808 posts) - - Show Bio

Didn't the Legion of Doom once wipe out all life on Earth with a solar flare? I'd have to go with that.

Oddly, the only thing I'll really never forgive him for is that time he beat up Supergirl (and calling her small-chested) but that's probably just because of my unhealthily obsessive crush on Kara

I vote the Kryptonian genocide

BY FAR, this is the most EVIL thing Lex Luthor has done.
