* WeAllDieSomeday: This is more or less Death's response when Luthor points out how often super-people come back to life. A few people might get an extra handful of years, but ''eventually'' they're all going to die for good. For someone who's basically as old as the universe, it doesn't make a lot of difference.

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]], ComicBook/VandalSavage, ComicBook/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.

* VillainousBreakdown: During the final confrontation between him and Superman, Luthor tries to break Superman by showing him painful moments from his life, thinking that Superman ''has'' no feelings. He shows him his death in front of many, the destruction of both Krypton and New Krypton and the sacrifice of his adopted son Chris Kent. But, when Superman shows him the most painful memory he has - the death of Jonathan Kent, who had a heart attack when Brainiac invaded awhile back - Luthor promptly ''loses it.''

* 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.
