Lex Luthor: Envy of Superman by ZacPensol Lex Luthor: Envy of Superman by ZacPensol
A drawing I did of Lex in my free time at the Metropolis Illinois Superman Celebration this year. Colored in Photoshop. I cheated a little bit by using a photo of myself that I smooshed around for his face, but then painted over considerably.

I drew a bit of inspiration from the Grinch in Lex's overdramatic grin, bulging eyes and eye-brows.

Changed the title (before I saw your comment) to be a little more punny (Envy of Superman, kind of like 'Enemy of Superman'). The thought of Lex's envy came as an after thought, but you hear the term "Green with envy" and "The green-eyed monster" in regards to envy, both which I thought were inadvertently 'said' in this picture (or, perhaps, subconsciously).

As far as who he envies... well... Superman, right? I guess that could be a subject of great debate, whether he truly dislikes Superman as a mockery of the weakness of humans, or whether there's a more deeply-rooted jealousy buried down in there.
