      It's not even that. It's that his villains are just seething hate letters to Superman and the only rebuttal is "lol no lazer eyes" or "lol no american way" or "lol no I'll just fly really really fast, turn the earth backwards, and defy the laws of time."

      Imagine if they tried to do one shots of supe's baddies similar to how they did those batman ones last year. Def not as interesting.

      Batman's villains kind of suck. None of them are on the level of someone like Lex.

        Batman's villians get their own spinoffs. Nobody is making box office movies centered around Lex Luthor.

          Joker's movie had nothing to do with the character besides wearing clown make up (that doesn't even look like the Joker's make up)

            It’s just a new origin they made for the same sequence of events. Killing Joke did that, Dark Knight did that.

        Any good character moments for Lex you'd like to talk about?
        Like I can name at least 1 for every Batman villain. Penguin had a story of loneliness and his oedipal attachment in 'Pain and Prejudice'. Scarecrow occasionally feeling remorse in between kidnappings when he realises he's just perpetuating what was done to him. Joker letting his guard down for the first time and feeling sad with what became of his life. Bane never being able to recapture his victory since Knightfall and wanting to die rather than keep living as a lifelong failure.
        Lex just seems annoyingly one-note whenever I read him. He never seems to have anything to his character but "petty and hates Superman". The only things about him I ever see people talk about is "he was so petty and hated Superman so much he did screwed the universe over cause he's so petty and hates Superman", like he has nothing else about him as a character. If that's Lex's "level" then I agree, most villains are way above Lex.

          Byrne had a bit where he propositioned some married waitress to be his kept woman then left her hanging before she could answer, for the lulz

          This only works with his 80s Trump style Lex though

      I think he has underrated rogues. No one compares to Batman but compared to capeshit over all I think he's pretty solid.

      because most of his villains, while undeniably iconic in their design, are just portrayed as being assmad about superman or seething in general

    too strong, and his weakness is a nonsense gimmick. Why does anyone even need Kryptonite anymore? Lexcorp and Wayne Industries have both studied it. Everyone knows what wavelengths of energy it radiates. Just make any old energy gun shoot those wavelengths and goodbye boy scout.

        His weakness is inconsistent just like everything else in capeshit history. Nothing makes any damn sense in the big 2.

          How is it different from every other super hero story? Or hell any other action-oriented story?
          Do you read Dragon Ball for the moral quandaries it poses?

    honestly I think were nearing the point where superman is more of a character similar to Frankenstein or Dracula

    It's because he doesn't have enough personality. He's blandly likable, maybe a little dorky in some versions, sometimes stern and stiff, but never are any of these traits emphasized enough to make him interesting, to make him feel like a real person or character. People compare him to Goku and focus on power or morality but the biggest difference is Goku has a ton personality. Not very original by modern standards or even all that likable after Super but very well defined and characterized in comparison to Clark.

      The best take on Superman's personality is when it contrasts Clark Kent, lovable dork, with Superman, implacable do-gooder. There's enough complexity there for fun and even angst, honestly it's more personality than Batman.

      I think it's a very easy fix, just make him sarcastic. But of course WB won't allow it because all they care about is making him a god.

        I don't think making him a sarcastic wiseguy is all that great an idea because the MCU and shit has run this character type into the ground for superhero movies, and it's a difficult line to walk anyway, making a guy as strong as superman a smart ass without making him incredibly unlikable.

    I hate superman because i sympathize with lex more. superman lies to everyone on a daily basis as clark kent, a fake persona. he affects incompetence, bungling, homosexual like mannerisms. its repulsive to watch and see in action. he does not naturally behave this way. his "best friend" jimmy olsen only knows this fraud. this pretend human. its malicious. it offends me deeply. his closest friends and coworkers never met clark/kal/superman. they only know the fake. they love and respect him and he lies to them every day and is happy aboit that.

    take batman for same universe. bruce is a fake persona. batman is who he is. very similar dichotomy to superman. however, batman ALWAYS brings his clisest friends and confidants and love interests i to his life. he tells them the truth. he cant lie to them forever and welcomes them into his life and holds nothing back. superman has only ever done this for lois. he continues the act with perry, jimmy, etc. it disgusts me.

        NTA but I haven't watched the show in years. But a young teen who was told by his parents to not tell anyone otherwise he could be taken away by the government is understandable.
        Also Lex lied quite alot in that show.

    The only people that insist "Superman is boring" are powerscalers who DEMAND that his power level be consistent with that one time he shattered a multiverse with one punch. Normal writers scale his strength up and down depending on who he's fighting, and it's NEVER been an issue with them.
