Superman has been called many things, from the defender of truth, justice and the American way to the Big Blue Boy Scout. In LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, he is called something he has never been called before: a threat to all humanity. Brian Azzarello and artist Lee Bermejo--the acclaimed team who brought you the best-selling JOKER--deliver a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Superman's longtime foe. MAN OF STEEL reveals why Luthor chooses to be the proverbial thorn in the Man of Steel's side: to save humanity from an untrustworthy alien being.

I wasn't sure if this was an alternate-world story or not when it began, but it took a narratively ambitious goal of diving in to the mind of Luthor and the full reasons he hates Superman, making them understandable and almost relatable -- until the end, which is a conclusion true and tragic. True to the integrity of Lex Luthor as he fits into the Superman (and DC) world.
