Re: Can Metallo character work in a Superman movie ??
John Corben is a soldier or pilot who was gravely wounded during the Battle of Metropolis in MOS. In order to save his life, Lex turns him into a cyborg. Corben blames Superman for his injuries, and Lex equips his cybernetic body with advanced weaponry (and maybe Kryptonite if Snyder/Goyer choose to introduce it). Lex and Metallo then form and alliance and Metallo attacks Superman physically while Lex pulls the strings. Superman cannot simply fight his way out of this situation like he did with Zod. He would be forced to rely on his intelligence and quick thinking in order to survive.
