Several actors have portrayed me in movies and on television, and while many were adequate, none truly ever captured my essence. How could they? Nevertheless, Creator/GeneHackman and Creator/KevinSpacey provided admirable performances, highlighting my under-appreciated comical side. Creator/MichaelRosenbaum brought a notable charm in portraying my younger years, and [[Series/LoisAndClark John Shea’s]] portrayal was sufficient. Creator/ClancyBrown was quite impressive in [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries several]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague animated]] [[WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanPublicEnemies portrayals]]. And my most recent portrayal by Creator/JesseEisenberg was … [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment interesting]].

For a more banal biography of my life, achievements, and yes setbacks, see ComicBook/LexLuthor.

Speaking of heroes, I'm sure you're aware that my arch-nemesis is {{Franchise/Superman}}, whom I refer to on this page below as "the alien." Our relationship is... complicated and my feelings for him are mixed. I do find him annoying, but it is difficult not to admire him -- even when he destroys one of my creations that was ''not'' meant to garner his attentions. AndThatsTerrible.

* CivilianVillain: I've faked reformation before, and will do it again. One of those times allowed me to be elected President of the United States.

* BadassInANiceSuit: Occasionally, I will put on my [[JusticeLeagueUnlimited power suit]]. I don't need a purple and green spandex suit to be a truly menacing SuperVillain.

* BodyHorror: I'd rather not think about the Luthor-Brainiac "team-up" in ''ComicBook/WhatEverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'', thank you. Or the one in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', for that matter.

* TheBadGuyWins: There have been occasions where I have triumphed over my enemies, however briefly--such as that time I trapped Superman in a [[VideoGame/{{Superman 64}} poorly coded simulation;]] even though he somehow managed to escape, [[KarmaHoudini I managed to get off scot free.]] There was also a non-canon Silver Age tale where I succeeded in killing Superman via a bout of feigned repentance and a kryptonite ray, [[PyrrhicVictory although I ended up being imprisoned in the Phantom Zone for it.]]

* SeriousBusiness: [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zlpKNeJMsgc In a classic ad]], my WesternAnimation/SuperFriends counterpart once captured Superman and left him powerless under kryptonite, all just so he could coerce the secret of why his brand of peanut butter tasted so great...it was a slow week for him, and admittedly it ''was'' rather good peanut butter.

* ShootingSuperman: Sometimes I have shot at the alien and others of his ilk, but not because I don't know better. I... merely needed to vent my indignation. In ''Action Comics #286'', I picked an ordinary machine gun and shot at Supergirl, sadly noting that [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/action_286_31.jpg my attack was harmless]].



* TeethClenchedTeamwork: [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker That clown]] gives me headaches, especially when for whatever reason I need him.

** Oftentimes the alien has mistakenly thought he was "saving" my life. How... cute, thinking that I need his help to save myself. Of course the alien god would condescendingly think we, poor mortals, can not get by without him.
** In ''Action Comics #286'', Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} saved my life. '''THAT ALIEN WENCH!''' And she delighted in declaring she "saved" me because she did not want me to escape my -completely and ridiculously unjust- life-term jail sentence through death!
