Re: [Earth-1 After the Crisis] Superman: The Unkindest Cut, part 25
- Sure, that makes sense, but is it in continuity? The average person most likely hasn't read one of those novels.. I know I hadn't.
The current Lex and Post-Crisis Lex is doing his thing on panal where the larger public can see it in the great wide open.
Not to mention this version of Lex appeals to a modern public who isn't all that happy with large corps or the gov... :)
Although I'm glad you pointed that out. It's interesting (and one of my gripes with the silver age for the most part) a lot of stuff was often over looked or left out. Comics seemed to leave a lot up to assumption.. and while I'm not all that happy with the senseless deaths in comics these days, I do appreciate the details modern writers bring to the field. Hell, you guys do that here and you're fans of the silver age.. I'm guessing you found this as a flaw too?

I'm not sure where I read it, but I think it was in one of Elliot S! Maggin's Superman novels. It explained that Lex Luthor had several hundred patents under assumed names or through dummy corporations, and that he was making millions on the manufacture of devices he'd invented including devices like the VCR, the microwave oven and the video game console.
Makes sense when you think about it.
