I've never seen Lex impress me with his intelligence really. People say he's very intelligent all the time, and he's definitely done science-y things, going back to his mad science roots, but it never seemed to me like he was any smarter than the average mad scientist, if that means anything. A "modern" lex twenty years ago was an evil businessman, one step ahead. A modern lex now should be ten to twenty steps ahead.
