And yet, there is one man who can see what a threat the alien truly represents, one ''man'' who is willing to stand against the being who has been [[PhysicalGod compared with God]]: SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor. The battle will be ugly, but the truth shall prevail.

* KickTheDog: If read attentively, it's seen that Lex does this constantly, undoing his good deeds. An good example of this is when [[spoiler: Lex, through Orr and subtly himself, threatens the family of one of his leading partners, who disagrees with Lex's suggestions. While Orr, the man hired by Luthor, intimidates this partner under the roof, ready to kill...]]

Luthor doesn't show any hint of contempt for humanity in the final scene. He says that they all wanted to see Toyman die, but he doesn't act like they're reprehensible at all. Honestly, his speech is fairly consistent with his behavior leading up to it.
* {{Hypocrite}}: For most of the book, Luthor presents himself as an idealist and a humanist, championing the finest parts of humanity against a near-godlike alien who threatens to make them redundant. But even leaving aside his various actions throughout the book, many of which may be ambiguously interpreted if the reader is so inclined, his final monologue to Superman is all about how humanity is actually twisted, rotten and malevolent inside, suggesting his supposed veneration of humanity to be a mere act.

But even leaving aside his various actions throughout the book, many of which may be ambiguously interpreted if the reader is so inclined, his final monologue to Superman is all redundant, but he still has no qualms about how humanity is actually twisted, rotten and malevolent inside, suggesting killing people, or threatening their families to get his supposed veneration of humanity to be a mere act. way.

* SympathyForTheDevil: An ambiguous example. In their final encounter, Superman as ever looks like he's barely restraining himself from attacking Luthor and reducing him to a smear on the wall for the most part, until Lex delivers his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech about how Superman has been blinding himself to how truly rotten inside humanity is. For one panel, Superman looks at Luthor with a sad expression which suggests that either Luthor's words have touched a nerve, or that Superman for a moment actually pities Luthor for his twisted, nihilistic view of the world and humanity, or both.

It's symbolism: green eyes = prone to jealousy (hence the name of the trope to begin with)
* GreenEyedMonster: Lex's lovely assistant gets jealous of the attention he gives Hope.

* GreenEyedMonster: Lex's lovely assistant gets jealous of the attention he gives Hope. [[RuleOfSymbolism Somewhat tellingly]] Lex himself -- who, for all his humanist pretensions, is clearly also suffering a bad case of this trope towards Superman -- is depicted as having green eyes.

Green Eyed Monster emphatically has nothing to do with green-eyed characters.
* GreenEyedMonster: Lex's lovely assistant gets jealous of the attention he gives Hope. Luthor himself has green eyes.
