He no longer needs to hide his ruthlessness.

 

Yeah, but I kinda feel like he's been turned into the Joker minus the white-face and rictus. I know that the Joker is DC's most popular villain, but does that mean every DC arch-villain must ultimately become an avatar of him?

Well, I don't think just being a ruthless killer is enough to draw equivalency to the Joker. Quite apart from their respective motifs, Joker's crimes are the equivalent of someone shooting craps. Luthor's crimes are always a chess game.

His ability to formulate, prepare, and execute phenomenally intricate plans in The Dark Knight notwithstanding, I get your point.

 

I guess I view such a casual disregard for killing anyone and everyone who is even remotely "in the way" to be a psychotic Joker trait rather than a ruthless Lex Luthor trait. When they both get painted with the same extreme sociopath brush, the finer distinctions become harder to discern, at least for me.

Lex Luthor has taken President Baker's place.  During the Red Daughter attack he switched places explaining him loosing Agent Liberty on the Alien Population to cause chaos. 

 

Just a theory.

 

That sounds like a pretty good theory!

 

I just wonder how they're going to get rid of Red Daughter after this season's story arc is done with her.

The Harun-El is unstable and she may explode like the Nazi Version did in Crisis on Earth X.

I find myself thinking of the Lois and Clark episode where Lex Luthor created a clone of Superman (who was misguided, having been brainwashed by Lex Luthor).  In the end, the cloning process made his physiology unstable and he died.

 

Edit to add:  The funniest thing to me was seeing Lex give Superman a piggy-back ride and reading him bedtime stories.

Lex also created a clone of Lois when he kidnapped the real Lois.

"Cloning" in comics isn't cloning in the scientific sense. It is a borrowed term that actually means "magical duplication". As such, it is impossible to predict how these so-called clones will behave since the "process" that made them is based entirely on handwavium and writer fiat.

Lena knows but I think she'll get over it.

 

The Monitor brings back Lex so he can hopefully take part in Crisis on Infinite Earths.

 

Next season Leviathan, a group of assassins led by Talia al Gul may be the main villains, and hopefully she'll be played by Lexa Doig.
