Background notes: When John Byrne got the job of recreating Superman after Crisis on Infinite Earths from 1985, he recreated Lex Luthor as a ruthless businessman. He was still a major villain, but he always had someone doing the dirty work. Having him become a villain like the two previous versions did not occur until the crossover event 52 from 2006.
