    Interesting story, but it could have been a lot better.

    Beautiful art and a compelling story make for a great comic. It is a short read, but would probably have been less impactful if it were longer.

    This is not the Lex I know. The character of Lex Luthor fascinates me, and this work does a good job of exposing his current utter ruthlessness and the depths to which he will descend to get what he wants, but it ignores Luthor's tortured past. Lex Luthor is not pure evil for evil's sake - there are motivations for his actions, possibly so deep in his subconscious by now that even he would be hard pressed to identify them, but they do exist.

I resisted purchasing this particular Lex story for a long time, but half-price day at the comic book store did me in. This is an interesting little murder mystery, but adds nothing to the appeal or intrigue of Lex for me.

    HQ muito bom contando a história de Lex Luthor, de sua infância até o rico doido que quer superar o superman. O trama é muito bem contado, não é uma narrativa contada pelo próprio Luthor mas sim o que seria uma biografia feita por um jornalista. O jeito que a biografia é escrita no HQ é muito boa, com uma pegada de detetive (poderia ser um HQ noir). O ponto fraco é que a historia é bem curta, é possível ler em menos de 1 hora, mas mesmo a historia é bem desenvolvida, vale a pena.

    The graphics adds a lot to this oneshot.

    Solid exploration of Lex's character, though doesn't quite reach the heights of Lex Luthor: Man of Steel, either in art or story. Solid exploration of Lex's character, though doesn't quite reach the heights of Lex Luthor: Man of Steel, either in art or story.

    Yes, this is a one shot 'prestige' style comic book. Yes, it was admitted by the creators to mirror trump's art of the deal. Yes, it is very very good. It's essentially a modern origin for Mr. Luthor. In the silver age Lex was a Smallville resident like Clark Kent/Superboy. One day his lab caught fire and Superboy's superbreath spilled chemicals that made Lex's hair fall out. It may have made him extremely vain also; not sure. After this he vowed vengeance on Superboy for the loss of his hair. Yup. Yes, this is a one shot 'prestige' style comic book. Yes, it was admitted by the creators to mirror trump's art of the deal.

After this he vowed vengeance on Superboy for the loss of his hair. Yup. He became a mortal enemy because of hair loss. That origin changed after John Byrne's mid-80's reboot. This origin is more wicked. Lex is born with hate. Hate for his parents, his station in life, everything. So, he's smart and does something about that. He then builds an empire and hates Superman because the public likes The Man of Steel more than Lex. Oh, well. Recommended. Find this in comic book stores or amazon.

    Not a great story, but it was ok. An ok read. For a character book, this seemed quite light on the character part of the story. It's done in a noire style but runs light enough of the development of the personalities to seem more of a caricature. Overall, if it's cheap and you don't have high expectations, sure.
