Lex Luthor

Okay, so here's the thing, I've never really been interested in the Super Powers armor that Lex Luthor wore. Quite frankly I think its ridiculous and if the Public Enemies storyline taught us anything, it's a bad idea. So when I decided to start filling out my DCUC Villains roster with iconic DC villains, I wanted a Lex Luthor without power armor.

That means either Business Man Lex, which was never made, or this guy, Superfriends Lex Luthor from the Gotham 5-pack Wal-Mart exclusive. So given that choice, I went with this one... on e-Bay. I like the overall design, but I've never understood what the cannisters on his bandoliers were for. I feel like if you're arch enemy can shoot pinpoint lasers, having gas cannisters full of nerve gas right under your face is a bad idea.

And why does he have them on his legs. But he's supposed to be a genius, so maybe he knows something I don't.

Maybe they're full of snacks. Because they don't have a grocery store near the Legion of Doom's swamp headquarters.
