* {{Pride}}: Supremely hubristic, to an almost Greek level. This affected even the Pocket Universe Lex Luthor in ''ComicBook/TheSupergirlSaga'', who, although he knew about the various Kryptonite isotopes hidden in Superboy's lab that could have stopped the Phantom Zone criminals before they started their reign of terror, refused to use them because he wanted the defeat of the criminals to be by his hand. He regretted this decision upon his death long after his Earth suffered a Class 6 on the ApocalypseHow scale.

Luthor has had various hats over the years. He was originally portrayed as a red-headed war profiteer who aimed to gain WorldDomination by playing various political factions against each other. He was then reimagined as a bald, egomaniacal MadScientist after an illustrator confused him with the Ultra-Humanite. This conception [[ThrowItIn of the character stuck]], and for the remainder of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} of comics, Luthor was written as a CardCarryingVillain who used his technological prowess to match Superman's physical might, regularly allying with other villains, like ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}, Bizarro, and the Joker in order to vex the Man of Steel and his allies. One thing that did change about Luthor was that as time went by, he became progressively younger and more physically active. The [[FatBastard paunchy man]] in his fifties was replaced by an [[BadassNormal exceptionally fit man]] in his forties, and was then retconned again into being only a few years older than Superman ''and'' possessed of a [[PoweredArmour warsuit]] that allowed him to fight the Kryptonian hand-to-hand. He also gained his own supporting cast, including his sister and MoralityPet, Lena, and the planet of Lexor, which hailed him as a hero after he saved it from destruction, and a number of alternate universe doppelgangers, including Alexei Luthor of Earth-2 (based on his original, GoldenAge appearance) and the heroic Alexander Luthor Sr. of Earth-3. This version of Luthor, along with the rest of the existing Franchise/DCUniverse, was erased from continuity following the ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''.
