Lex Luther: Man of Steel – Brian Azzarello

Not everyone I know was thrilled by this account of Superman’s nemesis that attempted to give some depth to Luther’s insanity, but I enjoyed the madness behind Lex’s methods, especially since the only other account was that Superman made him bald. It’s not perfect; Azzarello attempt to give Luther some virtue with a connection to a janitor is weak and the Batman-Superman fight takes pointless to a whole new level. Lee Bermejo’s unusual art takes some getting used to, yet wonderfully creates an “evil alien” image of the silent Superman.
