Re: The Official Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 6
Perhaps Lex is just having the concern against Superman in his head, to hide the fact he hates him out of jealousy.
People out there use excuses all the time to hate someone, and the excuse they use blinds them to what the real reason is to why they hate that person in the first place.
So Lex's hatred towards Superman stems from him [Superman] making Lex feel inferior, but he uses the excuse that Superman is a threat to hide it. Perhaps even to himself? Because is obsessed with destroying Superman, the thing that's making him feel inferior. But in his mind, he won't allow him to think he's inferior. So as a defence mechanism in his already complicated mind, he uses another excuse to hate Superman.
