* MartyStu: Lex Luthor, '''holy cow'''. Smart beyond belief, multitasking while learning a new language, everything he plans works out, even if it makes no sense and would be utterly impossible. Moreover, he [[spoiler: singlehandedly defeats Red Supes and his whole empire at their own game; wins global power through elections that make a point of showing off how much he is utterly loved by crediting him with a 101% result; creates a utopia that will last millions of years -all thanks to an ideology named after him- and finally set up a bloodline that will always keep the power during those millions of years.]] This is a VillainSue that is (ab)using ArtisticLicense to oblivion and is truly and completely play the intellectual and political PowerFantasy UpToEleven.

** The idea of a Communist Superman is actually an incredibly interesting concept if the comic engaged with the real history of the [=USSR=] rather than retread tropes from anti-communist propaganda.

* CrazyAwesome: Lex Luthor's introduction. A top scientist at STAR Labs, he's taking a coffee break playing (and winning) [[SmartPeoplePlayChess fourteen simultaneous games of chess]] while reading Machiavelli's ''ThePrince'' and also listening to a teach-yourself-Urdu tape on a Walkman of his own invention "to keep my mind occupied". He designed and built the walkman only a few hours earlier.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: When Superman asks Lex how he managed to circumvent the Fortress' defences?
--> Defences? Oh, I just thought they were decorations for some cheap Russian folk festival.

* MoralEventHorizon: Luthor is portrayed as being a {{Jerkass}}, but basically an UnscrupulousHero...right up until he murders all his lab personnel because [[HeKnowsTooMuch they know too much]] about the creation of Bizarro.

** Superman is oblivious to Pyotr being a traitor to his regime in spite of the latter openly despising him, or Diana clearly being in love with him. This is a hint that this version of Superman doesn't see human beings as people so much as he does as problems that need to be fixed. When Pyotr drunkenly hints that he poisoned Stalin, Superman is too busy solving problems and averting crises to really listen. [[spoiler: Lex figures out this flaw and uses it to achieve victory.]]

* * ObviousJudas: Why is Superman so shocked when he finds out from Batman [[spoiler:before his suicide]] that Pyotr betrayed him? He made no secret whatsoever of his hatred of him, and even [[InVinoVeritas drunkenly admitted]] that he poisoned Stalin.
