    Lex Luthor

    Character » Lex Luthor appears in 3894 issues.

    Lex Luthor, Superman's arch-nemesis, is one of the most brilliant men alive, whose hatred of "interfering aliens" pushes him down the path of a sociopath. Known for his "ends justifies the means" approach to life, his single-minded and often brutal focus puts him at odds with The Man of Steel. Luthor is arguably DC Comics' most iconic villain.

    Do you think lex luthor is black in justice league cartoons?

    Uh, why does it matter? I think many people just saw him as Lex Luthor and his race was never brought up so again why does it matter?

    ummm IDK maybe it feels good to be represented in comics??? my 10 year old dominican self always thought he was black. i don't see the issue as to why he shouldn't be black since he already has the characteristics (as if they weren't there on purpose but I guess for those who want him to be white) also how far is greece from africa??????? *is dominican growing up in a hispanic/greek community* yeah think its ignorant to think that representation in media is not important so...... yeah he is fucking black. bye.

    He had tan skin so no. If he's black then Idc seems kinda random.

    No. He was based off of actor Telly Savalis, specifically on his performance in "Her Majesty's Secret Service".

    Telly Savalis was a white man of Greek descent.

    He had tan skin full lips and a more african american sounding voice.. I thought he was half african american. He's just white I guess.

    @nerevarine_11: i know he was voiced by a white american but the tone of his voice in the show sounded.. I can't describe it, I always assumed the show made him biracial.
