I didn't like the concept of Superman X but liked the suit design. As for Lex...I wish we could have had the corporate mongrel/mad scientist (like what Paul Cornell is writing in Action Comics and Grant Morrison used in JLA) Luthor instead of the scheming petty criminal who's obsessed with land and real estate. One of my problems with the film versions of Luthor was that he came up with all these grand plans but what they all ultimately came down to was overblown real estate schemes!!!!! At least in "Superman Returns" you had Luthor show a little of his viciousness in the scene where he attacks and stabs Supes with the broken piece of Kryptonite. I like the idea of a film where Luthor is present back in the background or not vital to the story.
