A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 215
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at an interesting Lex Luthor moment from early in John Byrne’s Superman run…
Okay, so in Superman #2 (written and drawn by John Byrne), Lex Luthor has been doing a mysterious project and it involved computers and information gleamed from Lana Lang, who Luthor knows has SOME connection to Superman (and through Lana, they got information from Ma and Pa Kent, as they figure that Clark Kent must also have connection to Superman).
So we get the reveal of the project…
This was a very nice piece of characterization of Luthor by Byrne (well, a nice piece of characterization for Byrne’s Luthor, at the very least).
