I'd prefer Lex to be bald, but if he's well written, acted and his part in the story well thought out, then how he looks just won't matter that much.
I agree. I thought Jon Shea was perfect as Lex. He was a refined and wealthy business man, but shrewd and evil.

Mad scientist style Lex is too easy for Superman to thwart because all he has to do is find him. The L&C Luthor was a much better foil for because he neutered Superman. His vast power was useless against a man who could hide behind a popular public face and an army of lawyers and corporations.
