To be honest I wouldn't care if Lex wasn't bald. I mean look at Lois and Clark John Shea's Lex had a full head of hair and it never took away from who Lex Luthor was. So once again I could care less if he was bald or wasn't.

If I'm not mistaken, in MOS Lex does have hair but loses it. I'm not sure if it was Kryptonite poisoning or because of an accident. I gotta dust off the TPB and re-read it.

Its kinda silly to say I guess, but not every actor can pull off the bald look.

Actually no Lex Luthor was already bald after MOS before finding Kryptonite. It was reconnected later however that that was the cause of him going bald.

I'd like either bald from the start, or Lex gradually losing his hair like in Byrne's Man of Steel. I always liked that element...that Superman caused him such stress that he lost his hair.

Definitely don't want them to go the accident route.

My guess is Lex will be naturally BALDING, like in the MoS comics.

That seems to be the most realistic, less campy route.

So Lex may have some hair, but he'll be balding, like this:

I want a bald Lex and have no interest in how he lost his hair unless it turns out to be important to the story.

So Lex may have some hair, but he'll be balding, like this:

Don't confuse campy with sci-fi/modern. There are creative ways to make the story more interesting.

Bald from start is fine, but it would also be of interest for some people to have a reason.

What if being bald was a choice? Like, after meeting Superman he has a psychotic moment. Hear me out before flaming... He decides to cleanse himself, which includes shaving his head. We see him wiping the towel from his head and tossing it to the floor revealing his bald look. One of his workers ask him "Are you alright?" and he answers "I'm better than alright. Consider this my rebirth. I will rule without fear, I will make this Superman- a distant memory to the public. My power as a man will not be equalled even by the likes of him."

I agree I want to see Lex go nuts and cut his hair off...or at least give us some insight into why he chooses to be bald or became bald...Lex is actually a really interesting character if you want to flesh him out...I mean hell, he can go toe to toe with SUPERMAN!

I wasn't that far off. Thanks for clarifying.

EDIT: Why would someone wonder "why is he bald?" When the natural thought process would be genetics. So...they wouldn't put much thought to it. They'd accept it that he is a bald man.

I expect him to be bald from the start, no explanation.

I would WANT it to be the result of Superboy saving him during the lab accident, but I know that ain't even close to happening.

Lex loses his hair after radiation leaks from his broken powersuit after a fight with Supes. Thus Superman is the reason for him being bald.

The fourth option made me laugh. This is not 78, this is 2010. Everybody knows who Lex Luthor is. His bald head is part of his iconography.

Why waste time showing how Lex became bald when you can use that valuable time progressing the plot.

Bald, serious Lex is much more intimidating than the property developer comedian with wigs.

In Grant Morrison's JLA series, Lex admits to shaving his own head. I think that would also be an interesting route to take. He begins losing his hair (Thank you, Superman), and just decides to shave it all off, rather than risk the balding look.

While my favourite Lex was John Shea, I still think he should be bald from the start.

Since i'm kind of hoping the movie will take a lot from TAS, it just wouldn't work if he had hair... and wigs are just so un Lex Luthor to me... they kinda show someone who is too afraid to show himself... which he just isn't.

I'd like to see the accident route with Superman being involved, he tries to save Lex but burns his hair off
