10 Best Superman & Lex Luthor Stories Ever Written

The best of enemies, to the bitter end...

DC Comics

Every hero needs a villain. An arch nemesis to butt head with on a regular basis and, on occasion, to throw through a building or two but it can be a hard thing to get right. Get it wrong and you end up with someone like the Rainbow Raider who's only real power is to be able to see in bright colors but if you nail it, then you can set in motion a rivalry that lasts for decades.

This is what Superman and Lex Luthor have had for nearly eighty years now as these two have gone head to head time and time again. Lex is driven by an unreasonable hatred for Kal, seeing him as nothing more than an unwanted alien who is trying to take over his planet. This means that he is always planning and plotting to destroy the Man of Steel with varying degrees of success.

But which stories from their illustrious past are the ones that you should check out? And which of these truly deserves the title of the greatest story ever written? Read on to find out.
