Playing the Kryptonian Race Card

The Lex Luthor of Earth-23 really hates misconceptions about the nature of his irrational hatred of Superman.

Speciesist? Yes. Xenophobic? Yes. Racist? HELL NO.

This breakdown in interplanetary racial relations courtesy of Action Comics #9 (July 2012) by Grant Morrison, Gene Ha, Art Lyon, Rags Morales, and Brad Anderson.

    All I can think of when I see Luthor is, that one of his origin stories is he hates superman because Supes is the reason he is Bald. That just makes me giggle.

    Ah yes, the classic Silver Age origin story! It was actually a bit more than Superboy inadvertently causing his baldness, as I recall. He made Lex Luthor look bad because he was forced to stop several of his malfunctioning inventions that wreaked havoc on Smallville, causing Old Baldy to become convinced that he had it out for him.
