His adventures were popular and so the character’s mythos grew to include many details about Clark Kent’s early years in Smallville, Kansas. He was the sole survivor of Krypton no Supergirl , and he had never used the identity of “Superboy. In post-Crisis Legion continuity, Superboy’s role in the Legion was eventually replaced by Mon-El , a Legionnaire with nearly identical powers. In time it was revealed that there was a so-called “Pocket Universe” where the villain called the Time Trapper had in fact saved the original Superboy’s adventures and hometown. This Pocket Universe Superboy eventually died during a Legion mission. He also took the alias “Connor Kent. After the events of the Infinite Crisis , the DC timeline was reordered again, and in Superman’s history with the Legion and the original Legion itself was restored. He was from an original parallel Earth and survived the Crisis inside a sanctuary created by Alexander Luthor.
The Original Superboy
In the “now,” Lex keeps the wheels turning as he works his way back into Lena’s Katie McGrath good graces while maneuvering Supergirl Benoist and her team to take on Leviathan. But it’s the “then” that we’re really interested in, as we learn the backstory on how he because “new and improved” after the events of the mega-crossover event “Crisis. Speaking with PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing host Lola Ogunnaike , Cryer teased that some major production-delay related changes may be on the way for Lex by the end of the season: “The Supergirl folks have talked to me because we couldn’t shoot our last episode.
We had shot some of the last episode, and they’re gonna use some of that footage, but they’re writing a whole bunch of new stuff around it. Which is interesting because the way my character was thwarted now doesn’t happen anymore.

Superman is upset and mystified, even moreso when Batman then reveals that he is Clark Kent in front of Lois Lane. Superman gathers his friends, and talks them into voluntarily undergoing a mind-wipe of his secrets. They participate, but it has no effect on them. In fact, it seems to make things worse, as they begin blackmailing him. But this is all a huge scam by the Superman Revenge Squad, using a battery of androids.
Lois, Jimmy, Perry, Batman, Supergirl and Lori had all been captured before the events in the story began, replaced by androids. Superman became suspicious when tear gas did not affect them. He finds his real friends, captive in a cave, and releases them, messing up another overly elaborate and somewhat aimless plot by the Revenge Squad. Dorfman and Mooney put Lena Thorul through a lot in this tale. It opens as the FBI order her to write a criminology paper, as part of her application.
Lex Luthor is one of those she must question. Luthor has taken up raising flowers, and does his best to make a good impression on Lena, but her psychic powers reveal to her that they are siblings. Lena is so shocked she flies to Africa and loses her memory, living as a jungle princess for a while.
Supergirl comments on how Dreamer makes quick work of the aliens and apparently broke her record time in dispatching one. I got this. I want pictures. Supergirl then goes flying off before the DEA arrives with Brainy having an awkward hello-and-goodbye moment with Dreamer. When Nia goes home and decides to turn in after a day of superhero-ing, shes goes into full sweatshirt, jogging pants, and a tub of ice cream night in mode, which are more tell-tale signs of residual heartbreak over Brainy.
At the end of the night, Yvette is lured and beaten by Angus as Nia tries to comfort her afterward.
Due to her naivity, she fell under Lex Luthor’s influence for a while. Lex convinced Supergirl to be a hero of Metropolis and his personal body guard. Lex even sent.
Post a Comment. Tuesday, May 19, A Gross Imperfection. Once and a while you come across a comic book character who’s creators clearly had no idea what to do with. Sometimes that character dresses like a hawk or is a teenage Amazon or-in this case-is The Girl of Steel. It’s time to highlight a low point in Supergirl’s history with the character Matrix. However, writer John Byrne looped around this rule and created a new Supergirl in “Superman 16” in , a Supergirl who was neither Kryptonian or Superman’s cousin.
Okay, try to follow me on this. So on an alternate world-stay with me-where Superman died as a child and was not present to protect Earth from General Zod and his two Kryptonian goons, Lex Luthor created an artificial life-form he described as a protoplasmic matrix. He based this life-form’s appearance, personality and memory off his deceased wife Lana Lang.
Lex also gave her a physiology similar to Superman along with a Superman-themed costume and sent her to fight Zod, but she failed to match Zod’s strength. Still with me? Superman and Matrix were able to defeat Zod, but unable to save the alternate Earth.
Jon Cryer Debuts as Lex Luthor on ‘Supergirl’ — See the First Photo!
Not that he hasn’t had amorous attachments, but most have been ill-fated because he typically doesn’t view anyone else as his equal, but only as something to be used to further his various nefarious ends. Luthor has thanked the women who have come within his orbit by messing with their minds, stealing their power, taking their freedom and even ending their lives. To be fair, some of those people had their own less-than-honest motives for hooking up with Luthor and double-crossed him as soon as they could On the other hand, in some realities, Luthor’s better nature won out and he did know true, unselfish love for others.
Luthor also knew fatherhood, although sometimes he thought of his children as prizes rather than as people. Here are 15 of Lex Luthor’s romantic partners.

‘Supergirl’ Spoilers: Ep. 415 Introduces a Worthy Villain in Lex Luthor
Welcome back to Supergirl! Spoiler alert, I only like two things about this episode: The fact that Melissa Benoist directed it and beautifully , and one particular scene. We start this episode in the present day, 90 days post-CRISIS, with Lex standing over the body of the Leviathan woman, with everyone lauding him as a hero yet again. Supergirl arrives at the scene, confused, and William shows her that there was a video of the woman saying she was a follower of Amy Sapphire, the woman who wanted to break the VR servers.
Lena Luthor has fought her past since arriving on Supergirl, and Kara’s secret should not cause her to follow in her family’s Lena Luthor shouldn’t be another of Lex’s puppets for the rest of Supergirl. No premiere date yet!
In an alternate reality a “Pocket Universe” three Kryptonian criminals escaped the Phantom Zone , and tried to take over that reality’s Earth. There was no Superman in this reality his younger self, Superboy , having died before the criminals’ escape but there was a Lex Luthor who hadn’t gone bad. Using an artificial lifeform called the “protoplasmic matrix,” Lex made a red-headed woman who resembled his true love, the deceased alternate reality Lana Lang, even having Lana’s memories due to her synaptic pathways being copied into the creature.
This Lex had also patterned her physiology to resemble Superman’s, whom he had seen using one of his many inventions to look into the mainstream universe. Like Superman , the creature was superhumanly strong and fast and could fly, but also had the powers of shapeshifting, telekinesis, and invisibility. The girl, whom Luthor called Matrix, was given a feminine version of Superman’s uniform, shape-shifted into a young blonde woman, and fought the three criminals as “Supergirl”.
Her powers were no match for theirs, however. Desperate, Lex sent Matrix into the mainstream universe to recruit Superman. Her efforts were successful, and Superman did aid in stopping the Kryptonian criminals, but the alternate Earth had been ruined, and was now lifeless. Superman took the orphaned Matrix back to the mainstream DC Universe with him.
Lex and Kara
On the another hand, the foundations they were building their house on were very shaky, and clinging to them for so long brought the building down in a spectacular way. Matrix falling down in Luthor’s arms Post-Crisis Lex was real sleazy.
