    I'm sorry, but I like the idea of a Lex Luthor that's the same age as Superman, simply because he's better when he is one than when he isn't (seeing him kick the crap out of Superman when Superman has no powers is always great; check out part 7-8 of the Up, Up And Away story line in Action Comics for what I mean.) Having Superman defeat an older man sounds too much like an human crushing an ant.

    I remember that Billy Zane used to be suggested in the old Wizard Magazine Casting call for Lex. He would be great.

    I don't think Cheney can act that good.

    And, see, I don't think Luthor is *that* evil.

    From Luthor's POV, Superman just appeared on Earth and starting doing good for no reason. The alien clearly has a secret agenda.

    Also Luthor always considered himself the top dog, until the god like being appeared in HIS city. He can't stand the fact the public is so behind Superman.

    Now I can't help but picture Cheney doing the Bergess Meredith Penguin laugh.

    It is very well done, and suits him. I'd also like to see Darth Cheney live up to his name and play a Sith Lord :devil:

    ^Good. Hopefully, the bitchers, moaners, and whiners can have a nice cup of shut the frack up and stop complaining.

    Because it made money, that means it's a good movie?

    Good is relative. Success can be measured by dollars.
