His CareBearStare proves useful, though... as a distraction, so the rest of them can rip him apart.

* In the "[[ComicBook/TheBlackRing Black Ring]]" storyline in ''ComicBook/ActionComics'', Lex Luthor releases the Zone Child (a creature that intended to purge all negative emotion from the universe) from the Phantom Zone and defeats it.

Luthor learns that he can only keep his newfound power as long as he doesn't do anything negative, [[StatusQuoIsGod so]] [[HisOwnWorstEnemy of course the first thing he does is try to kill Superman]]. This led to the Joker, of all people, commenting about how Luthor, with his pettiness, squandered the ultimate power to do good.
