AKA: ALEXANDER JOSEPH LUTHOR, MOCKINGBIRD
When you�re as strong, fast, invulnerable and flat-out powerful as Superman, it�s hard to find a nemesis of sufficient menace to actually provide you with a workout. Enter Lex Luthor, the bad guy�s bad guy. He doesn�t (usually) have superpowers, but then he doesn�t need them, even against the Man of Steel. No prison can hold him, it seems, no setback is too great to overcome, and there�s pretty much no scheme too outlandish for his considerable brain power to cook up. Since Superman remains reluctant to just break Luthor�s neck, there�s always tomorrow for this perpetual rebounder. Talk about try, try and try again � Robert the Bruce�s Spider had nothing on Luthor.
