>>77895659
yes

>>77895659
Try reading comics sometime.

Does someone has the picture where he watches Grodd in the airlock?
I could need that

Watch All-Star Superman seeing as I don't think you read it.

I'm gonna hijack this thread for just a second, if you guys don't mind.

When I showed my girlfriend the new BvS trailer, she asked "who's Lex Luthor again?"

What's a good scene from the animated series I can show her that really captures who he is?
>>
>>77896078
Fuck you. Make her read Lex Luthor: Man of Steel.

>>77896078
>What's a good scene from the animated series I can show her that really captures who he is?

The one where he bodyswaps with the flash and finds out his identity
>>
>>77895829
You can see Lex Luthor in comics.
>>
>>77896078
The "Do you know how much power I'd have to give up in order to become President?" one
>>
>>77896030
He was good but he was pretty much a continuation of the STAS version with some added gadgets. Not sure if he counts.

Clancy Brown is undefeated in most villain roles.

The real question is if we're ever going to see a better Deathstroke than Pearlman.

>>77897015

>>77895659

Yes.
>>
>>77895659
Smallville is considered a really good portrayal. If you take into account the differences in power, money, influence/access due to age and other circumstances, I would agree, although I did like the DCAU version a great deal.

I agree with >>77895747, I think ASS is probably the best portrayal, but you should read the trades.
>>
>>77896030
Is that one voiced by Clancy Brown?

>>77897073
DC you're sitting on a goldmine here!

There really isn't debating that Luthor was black in DCAU. You whites can have all the other characters but we got Lex

Just kill her.

This is really the only Lex I know since i grew up watching the Justice League cartoons.

Bald and mulatto.

>>77895803
He was meant to be black? I've assumed he's Hispanic or just Greek/Italian in the DCAU

Fifty Two and Forever Evil versions of the character are superior to this one.
But that's a pretty cool version.

looked just like 2face from BTAS,was this a

>>77896078
The only right answer is lending her Lex Luthor: Man of Steel.
>>
>>77898200
No. it's just that the way he looks on TV, well you don't really think about it but, if someone told you he was black you could kind of believe it since he's bald and not yellowish-white skinned like you'd usually see. Of course with that someone could post that image where they compare Super Man's skin with Lex's.
He's of Greek descent.

Best Luthor is Red Son's Luthor.

>He think you read illustrations...

>>77898374
I thought Luthor was black when I was a kid.
>>
>>77895659
Unfortunately, probably. DCAU Lex was god-tier and it's unfortunate that casuals don't really care about him, or DCAU Lois Lane, or Tim Daly and George Newbern as Superman, when they were all some of the best takes on the characters really.

The DCAU was fuckin' based.
>>
That's just because DCAU Lex was really good
>>
I was always a really big fan of Lex in the All-Star adaptation. Even if the movie as a whole fell flat in a number of places, his scenes were all great

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZCNDwKgi7o
>>
>>77895659

The DCAU remains probably my favorite "distilled" versions of the DC comic characters. I don't see that changing anytime soon.
>>
Until they decide to hire Mark Strong for the movies, yes.
>>
>>77901223
It helps that they don't have to deal with keeping continuity straight in every iteration of a DCAU show or movie. They can just make a movie about Superman or Batman or the Just-Us League or whatever and let it stand on its own.
>>
>>77898297
Isn't the Rock samoan, hawaiian or something?
>>
>>77900834
Lex and Supes get gayer with every animated appearance, I approve.

Half Samoan, Half African-American.

>>77895659
Eisenberg might be better, we will see.
>>
As far as adaptations of the character from the page to the screen, he's definitely in the top tier.

But given the competition that really isn't all that much to brag about.
>>
>>77901605
>Half African-American.
So half African? I can maybe kinda see using "African-American" to describe a person but to use it to describe their genetic lineage is retarded.
>>
>>77898200
nah, he's not black.

>>
>>77902107
>So half African? I can maybe kinda see using "African-American" to describe a person but to use it to describe their genetic lineage is retarded.

Not really, since "African-American" is pretty much a grab bag. Most African Americans are a mix between Africans, Whites, and Native Americans (since the slavery of NA's overlapped for a time with that of Africans).

>>77898313
The Johns version is just a more unhinged version of this one though. Tve influence is so obvious. Not saying that's bad, or even that it automatically makes the DCAU version better I just don't think you can talk about the Johns version withouttalking about this one.

Xanatos is capable of love, though. I really don't see YJ Lex being able to love anyone.

Again, he does hate Superman, but he's not shouting it at the top of his lungs either. He could've used any other person to stabilize Superboy's Kryptonian DNA, but he chose to do it himself. That's a huge "fuck you" to Supes.

Well, for most of last century we weren't really welcomed as white. Then I think whites wanted us to be some kinda buffer zone against the darker skinned folk. Hell, even here in the Northeast, my family told me how we weren't allowed on some whites only beaches.

I can't be the only one seeing Marvel's Arcade when I look at this Lex.
>>
It's the perfect Luthor voice. Like other people I can't help but hear his voice when I read him in comics.

I do think the Superman TAS version suffered from being the John Byrne/Marv Wolfman version who was pretending to be a good guy. He was a fantastic villain but because he couldn't be publicly known as a villain, he couldn't play as big a role as he should have.

Which is probably why the Justice League Unlimited version kept pushing him closer and closer toward the Silver Age mad scientist version. That and SA nostalgia.

considering all he's been in is shitty movies as of late...why the fuck didn't they think of him. this totally could be his come back role.
>>
I've always felt Luthor should be more like Doctor Doom. That he hates Superman but loves mankind and actually is good if not blinded by his xenophobia. That a world under Luthor's rule would be a better place because he is so pragmatic and logical, like Von Doom's world was a better world without the need of superheroes. But Luthor had the world and/or the US and only persisted as a one dimensional bad guy taking any chances to do bad shit and eventually get superfucked.
I don't understand what anyone sees in him, but then again I probably never read the RIGHT super selected elite issues.

Germans and Scandinavians weren't considered white by the Anglo-Saxon establishments in the UK and US until after the Nazis succeeded in changing that attitude for the rest of the 20th century. The whole "Northern Europeans" concept is basically Nazi fanfic.
