Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
A man like Lex is too smug to admit anything like that to himself. His actions are combined of those that seek to maintain their superiority, and terminate those that put their superiority in jeopardy. Lex feels superior to everyone else, but inferior to Superman, hence Lex trying to sort that out by seeking to destroy and surpass him in any way he can. It's not just a common battle Lex has going on with Superman, it's something deeper to him.
