Smallville - Special section on the Superman series from

Lex Luthor

Lex as a child - with hairIn the future, Lex Luthor will be one of Supermanís greatest nemesis...but now, heís a teenage friend running Lex Corp. in Smallville. He was five when the meteor shower struck the town and caused his red hair to fall out leaving him permanently bald. Growing up as a rebel, his father sends him off to Smallville to run the plant and hopefully learn a bit more about business and responsibility...though it seems Lex knows more than he ever let his father suspect.

One of the most interesting characters in the series, small traits keep being revealed about Lex and we get the feeling there is much, much more to him than anyone suspects.
