Re: Lex Luthor Casting Thread - Part 5
^ The evil bad@$$ MAKES the tragedy. Imagine a person who could spend all his technology and resources on making the world a better place, instead of discrediting or attempting to kill an alien with positive motives. But Luthor shouldn't be all mopey and sad, even if there were a tragic backstory (I'd rather not have a backstory for Luthor. Too much screentime, and it takes the mystery away.)
He should be likable on the outside, cold on the inside, but with flashes of anger.
