He should be likable on the outside, cold on the inside, but with flashes of anger.
Yes, Lex should be likable on the outside, but inside he is and has always been a psychopath. That's what I want. I don't want any tragedy associated with him. He could be a good guy, but he's not. That's what I want to see. Someone is completely opposed to Superman's way of thinking.
