Lex has a number of complex's [is that how you say it? lol]

The defence mechanism kicks in, he has a superiority complex. He needs to prove it constantly, because he does feel inferior to Superman. Otherwise he wouldn't keep trying and would be content with life.

He also has the edifice complex, like many rich people. The need to create buildings that suit is own taste in architecture, that makes him feel empowered.

He feels the need to leave his mark on the world, a huge one at that. Perhaps because he felt inferior in his youth?

And finally, how about Karl Urban as Lex?

4. Joker being the big bad in Batman: Arkham Origins
5. Green Goblin not wearing a mask and being mutated
