Lex Luthor as he appears in Smallville fan-fics.

PersonalityEdit

Lex's personality is usually manipulative and certain he's in the right, though in some fics, he manages to maintain his status as Clark's friend and becomes an ally to the Justice League.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Thanks to the 1989 Meteor Shower, Lex has a heightened immune system that protects him from disease and has saved his life more than once. Also, due to the neural toxin Tess used on him, Lex's already above average intelligence has increased due to an increase in brain activity. He's also skilled in hand-to-hand combat thanks to the aid of an old chauffeur.

WeaknessesEdit

Lex has most weaknesses as a standard human, but he is still immune to most diseases, and it seems impossible for him to bleed to death due to his accelerated white blood cell count.

HistoryEdit

Conner KentEdit

SuperboyEdit

Lex Luthor (Smallville)24

Lex greets Tess after his memories are restored.

A few months after Clark became Superman, Lex went up to Tess as she was looking over the blueprints for rebuilding the Mansion, commenting, that he can't say he approves of what Alexander did to the Mansion to show Tess that his memories had survived. He also claims that he had an antidote to the neural toxin handy, saying that the Master Work was more than just various pieces of clones, claiming to have survived the explosion of his truck and simply having the pieces of his clones grafted onto his ruined body, aided by Helen Bryce, using the time everyone thought he was amnesiac to position himself exactly where he needed to be for the coming events, choosing to be a better hero than Clark after hearing about the future from Pax, telling Tess that she'll see what his master stroke is and that he's still counting on Clark being there to stop him. Lex then meets Conner and notes how he says his name the same as Clark. He then explains what he explained to Tess. He then gives Conner the same speech he gave Clark, enjoying how Conner doesn't have patience with it. He also inquires about Alex, though assuring them that he doesn't plan on recruiting him. He also reveals that he let Alexander leave Cadmus with Tess and gave Oliver access to Clark's ship for his fight with the Unholy Trinity and taking credit for pushing Clark into becoming Superman, brushing off Conner's claim that it was Jonathan Kent with Lex calling Conner a brother, getting his goat. Lex then leaves and returns to Metropolis.

PoisonedEdit

At Cadmus, Lex is overlooking a child's room with his new chief doctor, Helen, where a prototype of LX-15, a clone of Emily with Clark's DNA as a stabilizing agent was until her super speed developed recently, and she escaped. Lex insisted on not telling Alex of the situation as Emily was his prototype before walking off.

PrototypeEdit

Before Emily developed superspeed, Lex talked to her, saying that he thinks they got off on the wrong foot. When Emily asked where Lana was, Lex assured her that he and Dr. Bryce would take good care of her before he walked off. In the present, Lex walked in on Tess trying to get Alex to come back to the Mansion, asking why he'd want to do that. When Tess snaps that Lex will just turn Alex into him, Lex pointed out that Tess was already doing a good job of that. When Tess said that Lex destroyed everything good in his life over a need for control, Lex pointed out that she did the same thing. He then asked what Alex had that he didn't, which was a brother. However, Alex seemed to choose Lex, so he left with Alex, noting how you win some, and you lose some.

Zod possesses Lex.

Later, Lex was abducted by Brainiac and given Kryptonian powers. Unknown to Lex, he was chosen to be the vessel for General Zod, and Clark was told by Jor-El that he had to kill Lex in order to prevent Zod's return. Lex confronted Clark at the Kent Farm. He then attacked with his Kryptonian abilities, and Clark reacted to it, letting Lex know that he had the powers as he did. Eventually, the fight led to the Fortress of Solitude. Clark showed Lex a Kryptonian dagger Jor-El gave him. However, he tossed the dagger down as a sign of possibly starting their friendship over. Brainiac then grabbed the dagger and used it to open the portal for Zod. When Zod possessed his body, Lex became dormant and his spirit seemed to be "dead." After trapping Clark in the Phantom Zone, Zod posed as Lex for the time being, kissing Lana when she came to see what happened.

ZodEdit

Lex Luthor (Smallville)8

Lex managed to get free from Zod when Clark returned from the Phantom Zone and used the Crystal of El to separate Zod's spirit from Lex's body, restoring Lex back to normal with no recollection of the destruction he caused while possessed by Zod until he and Clark talked, and Clark revealed his secret to him, and they restarted their friendship.

Lex remembers the truth about his first arrival to Smallville and of the Veritas Society.

Lex learns that a man claiming to be his twin brother was actually someone from an alternate reality where Clark never came to Earth, which Lex mused that he's not shocked by that fact considering all the weirder things. Lex also theorizes that they have to learn of a way to reveal that Earth-3 Lex isn't Lex's twin. Once the group met up, Lex learned the whole story of Clark's alternate universe journey and thought it was interesting, agreeing that his alternate self was a jerk. He then rushed out with the others when Lana confronted Clark about kissing Lois. Lex later saw a news report of Lionel apparently committing suicide, which Lex immediately didn't buy, believing that the other Lex had killed him. Lex then agreed to talk to Dr. Swann, and he revealed the truth about Veritas, which was why Lex and Oliver would often meet at the Queen Mansion. He then agrees to help find the Orb before the other Lex, working with Kara to retrieve the missing pieces. While they were away and Lana was made catatonic, Lex promised that he helped her. Lex then attended Lionel's funeral with the others, and he joined Clark in sprinkling dirt on his father's grave.

He then went to the Fortress to stop his alternate self where he was met with Clark. At the Fortress, Lex shot at him several times, but Luthor set off the Orb as the Fortress began crumbling. Desperate to save his friend, Lex dragged Clark to the transporter which miraculously transported the two away as the Fortress crumbled on Luthor.

OdysseyEdit

After the Fortress's collapse, Lex went missing and was presumed dead.

A month after his disappearance, Oliver found Lex and a powerless Clark in Russia being used for manual labor. Oliver managed to rescue the two as Lex reunited with Kara and introduced her to Tess, whom he explains had been working for him after he saved her life. He then went to LuthorCorp and retook control of the company, warning the board to wait until a body was found for them to claim he was dead again. He then revealed the other Lex as a fraud, made easy as he had recently bought the Daily Planet.

Lex was in a board meeting at LuthorCorp, discussing the Red-Blue Blur stories in the Daily Planet as well as discussing mysterious murders all over the city, justifying the story's credibility by Lois' reputation for telling the truth and reports of the Batman in Gotham, when Tess arrived and told Lex he had a call where Oliver explained how Clark, Kara, and Lois had gone missing, causing Lex to adjourn the meeting. Lex then arrived and inquired where Chloe was when she arrived and explained that she knew Lex's old friend Davis Bloome. Back at LuthorCorp, Lex was overlooking some files when Tess arrived and explained how Clark, Kara, and Lois returned, but she also explained how Davis Bloome was something called Doomsday, which Lex recognized as the Ultimate Destroyer from the Veritas Journal he inherited from Lionel. He then read aloud how Doomsday will beat Clark to death when Clark arrived stating that they can't give up on Davis as well as introducing Lex to a dog he found in the Phantom Zone, Krypto.

RequiemEdit

Lex Luthor (Smallville)23

Lex goes after his alternate self.

At the mansion, Lex learned with Tess that LuthorCorp had somehow lost a deal to Victoria and LexCorp. Realizing they were bugged, Lex and Tess began looking with the bug being found by Kara. When Krypto arrived at the Mansion with Clark and began pulling at Kara's skirt, Lex insisted that Kara go with them as it seemed important with him and Tess keeping in touch via Watchtower before joking with Tess about how she secretly liked Krypto. A short time later, Oliver confronted Lex over Lionel arranging the plane crash that killed his parents. Lex advised Oliver not to dwell on it, drawing experience from when the other Lex killed Lionel. It's shown that Lex also has a picture of himself and Tess from before the Meteor Shower. When an explosion occurred at LuthorCorp that took out the board of executives, Lex and Tess survived as they were running late due to traffic. When Clark discovered the cause of the explosion was a toy monkey, Lex realized that it was an ex-employee named Winslow Schott, presuming he was hired by a recently revealed to be alive Lex from Earth-3. Lex then apologized for what his alternate self did, forcing Lana to break up with Clark. Lex then assisted the League in the search for Schott, also assuming that as the other Lex is alive, he is presumed to know everything about Clark. Lex later learned from Chloe that there was a bomb on top of the Daily Planet, deciding it was time to finish this with Tess and Oliver. They then meet up with Clark after Lana used a recently gained powersuit to absorb the Kryptonite radiation, explaining they were going to bring the other Lex in when his truck mysteriously exploded. Scanning the remains, Lex confirmed that it was the Lex from Earth-3. After Lana left once again, Lex checked on Clark and agreed with Clark's idea to continue to pursue his relationship with Lois and look to the future with Lex wondering what happened to the other Lex.

On his first day in Smallville, Lex was driving on the Loeb Bridge when he lost control of his car and accidentally hit Clark Kent; they both fell into the river. Clark used his powers to save Lex from drowning, and so began their friendship and Lex's obsessive investigations, with Lex repaying Clark by taking him down from the scarecrow poll a few nights later.

After examining Lana Lang's Meteor Rock necklace, he went to talk to her. Resulting in him leading Lana to realize Whitney lost her necklace. Once at home, Lex joked about Clark making a career out of saving people after having saved Whitney from an unknown attack.
