While present-day Lex Luthor is busy fighting an array of the DCU's most vile foes over in ACTION COMICS, this annual takes a look back at two formative encounters Luthor had before he became the bald mad genius we know and love (to hate) today! Marco Rudy illustrates a story of young Lex and Darkseid, while Ed Benes tackles a tale starring Luthor and Batman foe Ra's al Ghul!

Luthor's first steps towards power 0

    Action Comics Annual 13 takes us on a whole new look on Lex Luthor as we see a part of his history that was never told but yet finds itself as being a valuable piece that helps to define Lex Luthor. As Lex Luthor takes us on an EPIC adventure with his quest for power in the main Action Comics storyline, now comes the Action Comics annual that not only lacks a Superman, but starring a young Lex Luthor who’s first steps into Metropolis was one moment that should’ve been told within this five ...
