Re: Michael Rosenbaum - Lex Luthor : The Villain of the Story
What they should have done was give Lex a proper exit at the end of season 7. But since they didn't, they should have just left it alone until they knew 100% for sure Michael would be returning. The easiest solution was to just say Lex disappeared after the FOS fell and was taking the time to heal.
