During the events of ''Blackest Night'', Luthor had briefly served as an Orange Lantern. Infected by the Orange Light of Avarice, Luthor finds himself unstable and unsatisfied without the [[GreenLanternRing power ring]], and sets out on a quest, not to regain what he has lost, but to gain a greater power still, by tapping into the energies of the Black Lantern Rings. His quest takes he and his allies around the world, as they seek the energy spheres containing the rings' power, and come into conflict with foes including, but not limited to, [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Mister Mind]], ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}, [[TheFlash Gorilla Grodd]], {{Vandal Savage}}, TheJoker, [[Franchise/GreenLantern Larfleeze]], ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}, and even [[ComicBook/TheSandman Death herself]]. The arc explored Luthor's relationships with these other villains, doing its best to define the Post-Crisis, Pre-New 52 Luthor as a character, and as a major figure within the DC Universe as a whole.

* GodTest: LexLuthor meets ''[[Comicbook/TheSandman Death]]'' and he immediately demands proof. She softly pokes the tip of his nose, and it turns grey and begins cracking.

* CallingYourAttacks: Luthor does this during his battle with Brainiac in order to psychologically trick Brainiac into doing the same. This allows Luthor to Brainiac's defences, since he can hear and plan around his vocal commands.

* EvilIsPetty: Luthor gives up omnipotence and the chance to give everyone in the universe eternal bliss all because one of the conditions of keeping that power is that he can't do anything negative with that power such as, say, destroying Superman. To Luthor, godhood is meaningless if he can't use it to crush his greatest foe.

* OathboundPower: The ''only'' condition for Luthor to keep the Zone Child's powers is that he must not do anything negative with it. Too bad for Luthor, trying to destroy Superman does qualify as something negative.
