Lex Luthor is the CEO of LexCorp. After the Atlantean invasion, Luthor went to Belle Reve Prison and spoke with Orm. Luthor introduced himself and offered a proposition. General Sam Lane decided to save the life of a dying solider named Corben because of his perfect record. Lane contacted Lexcorp and Lex Luthor agreed to help. Corben was rebuilt as a cyborg soldier powered by Kryptonite. Then it became something else, he would be the first of a new kind of hero designed to stop Superman if he went on a rampage. The power was too much for Corben and he went crazy. Luthor continued to seek out allies and formed a group of supervillains called the Legion of Doom. With Solomon Grundy, Cheetah, Weather Wizard, and Toymaster, Luthor launched a surprise attack on the Justice League's Hall of Justice in Metropolis on the night of its unveiling to the public. Luthor wore a Lexcorp warsuit and fought Superman one-on-one.

After Luthor pinned Superman under his foot, Superman punched him into a parking lot. Superman then punched him into another building. Luthor asked if this was how he treated his guests. Superman remarked he crashed the party and called them even. Luthor uppercut him into the air, flew up, punched him twice, then threw him into the Hall. Back outside, Superman and Luthor locked hands. Superman noted to Luthor he was smarter than conducting a brazen assault. Luthor insisted superheroes attracted supervillains and he was just an innocent industrialist caught in the middle. Superman wasn't amused and emitted precise heat vision blasts all over the warsuit. He ripped the suit's arms off and the suit itself powered down and fell to pieces. Luthor vowed he would pay. Superman remarked he probably had the suit insured.
