I hate it. It is only my opinion and in no way reflects anyone else's views on this work of fiction. But I hate it just as I hate all other similar works in which Batman effortlessly beats Superman because he is "so smart". Why, oh why is it always the human captain of industry or the politician who decide who should or should not have this or that amount of power? I am sure if it was Luthor himself who wielded such awesome power as Superman's he would see himself as fully justified to it. And how in the name of Siegel&Schuster does every writer who takes this pathetic human aggrandizing route figure a mere human, no matter how smart or rich could possibly counter, much less outright beat someone with the powers and abilities of a Kryptonian? G'd! Super-senses, heat-vision, super-speed, super-intellect, flight, strength and invulnerability. And Kryptonite shouldn't even be an issue, because let's be honest, it is only through the stupidity of its writers that Kryptonians only use on power at the time (mostly). Flight, super-speed, super-hearing, telescopic vision and heat-vision; that right there is the combo solution to most opposition of a physical nature a Kryptonian could have. Find the problem, locate it, analyze the situation from a distance sufficient to negate that pesky Kryptonite (low Earth orbit, anyone?) and then vaporize said problem with heat-vision. Problem solved. This solution is valid for the likes of Luthor, Doomsday, Darkside and whatnot. Period. Good night.
