That's not a Lex I want to see.
No, the killing himself had nothing to do with it. The idea was more of having a "genius criminal mastermind" that was actually a genius criminal mastermind. The BBC Sherlock version of Moriarty is about the best I've ever seen that role done.

A billionaire that just happens to hate Superman is boring. He needs to have motivation. And a genius like Moriarty who is psychotically and deleteriously bent on proving his brains over Superman's brawn would be very intriguing.
