* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Not everyone is happy about Luthor's transformation from a high-tech inventor criminal mastermind to a CorruptCorporateExecutive. Creator/NeilGaiman (who wrote this version of Luthor in his ''Black Orchid'' miniseries) laments that Luthor has become a "skinny ComicBook/{{Kingpin}}"[[note]]"I liked him better as a bald scientist. He was in prison, but they couldn’t put his mind in prison."[[/note]]. Fans of the Franchise/{{DCAU}} version noted that Luthor became more dangerous, intimidating [[EvilIsCool and cool]], when he shifted from TheEighties Luthor businessman getup to his Silver Age MadScientist shtick.

** Under Creator/JohnByrne, Luthor engages in quite a lot of ForTheEvulz manipulations of women, most infamously his "game" of finding married working-class women, offering them million sin exchange for one month in Metropolis as his consort, and then deliberately leaving ''before'' they can decide so that they'll be tormented for the rest of their lives. And as the head of Lexcorp, he's shown intimidating attractive women in his employ to sleep with him.
** During Comicbook/TheDeathOfSuperman storyline, he murders one of his martial arts trainers for knocking him down during a sparring session, reveling in the idea that Superman's absence means he can get away with anything he wants.

Oh, and just for added kicks, he makes sure an ex-con janitor at Lexcorp will be framed for it.
