Quotes: The Sociopath
Lex Luthor is Superman's sworn archenemy. If the alien Superman embodies selflessness, Earth's own son Luthor is selfishness personified. He uses his genius-level intellect and driving ambition only to advance himself and crush others. Even without superpowers, Lex is easily the most dangerous human being on the planet.
Head of the technological powerhouse LexCorp, Lex is devoted to ridding the world of Superman for the good of humanity - or rather, for one man: himself. His talk of empowering the common man is only a cover. Charming, fascinating, and utterly indifferent to the suffering of others, Lex is a true sociopath.

Alex Mercer: This... source. It's the key to genetics — but it's also a machine, churning out the worst viruses ever seen. Things that — if they got out of the lab — could literally erase human civilization as we know it.
Joseph Schulze: And how did that make you feel?
Alex Mercer: I wasn't paid to feel.

The man with the cold voice had killed a woman. He was talking about it without any kind of remorse - with amusement.

He knew he should feel bad for the dork, but he only felt annoyed. He felt worse about the fact that he didnt feel bad than he did about what hed just read.
Regent, Worm

Miles: "Corporal."
Strausser: "I'm a sergeant now."
Miles: "Well, let's be honest, you're a sociopath, is what you are. Before the blackout, you'd have been locked in a rubber room."

John: I've been clinically diagnosed with sociopathy. Do you know what that means?"
Rob: "It means you're a freak."
John: "It means that you're about as important to me as a cardboard box. You're just a thing - a piece of garbage that no one's thrown away yet."

"People are simply things to be used. Used and thrown away."
