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.
Yeah, and a Luthor who could've been humanity's savior if he wasn't so wrapped up in his own hatred for Superman is interesting as well. I'd like a Lex that's a hybrid.
