|Speeding Bullets (1993)|
Last week it was announced that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2 (aka Batman vs. Superman). Immediately complaints poured in about him being too skinny and not being bald enough. What Culture wrote a whole article complaining about him being too young, too short and not bald enough. But they forget Lex Luthor hasn't always had the bald head and gut.
Here are 10 of the most memorable appearances of Lex Luthor.
1. "First Appearance" Action Comics #23 (1940)
2. "Brute Lex Luthor" Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again (2001)
3. "Cyber-Link Luthor" Superman & Batman: Doom Link (1995)
4. "Lutor" Superman's Metropolis (1996)
5. "Reverse beard Luthor" Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl & Batgirl (1998)
6. "Lex Lemur" Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew (1983)
7. "John Byrne Luthor" Man of Steel (1986)
8. "Soviet Luthor" Superman: Red Son (2003)
9. "Reverse Gender Luthor" Superman/Batman (2005)
10. "Lex Joker" Superman: Speeding Bullets (1993)
So you see? Jesse Eisenberg will be fine as Lex Luthor because it's not just about the bald head. Feel better? You're welcome.
