To me we have never seen the Lex I want to see, the version from TAS. The mega rich business man who is in bed with the military when it comes to developing cutting edge tech. To me that version fits right in with the destruction of Metropolis and how we'd want to become better prepared for anymore alien threats given how easily they took care of the military and the fact the government still wont fully trust Superman, they'll always have a "What if?" scenario in mind.
