"Luthor's Day of Reckoning!": Lex Luthor marries Angela Blake, but it turns out to be part of a plot to trap Superman.

Quote1.png To think you were actually willing to turn yourself into an "unsuspecting victim" of your own insidious plot! To think you were willing to manipulate yourself into reforming... Giving up all your criminal ways... All for the sake of making your ultimate plan a lethal reality! And least surprising of all-- To think you'd be cold and heartless enough to extinguish the life of a terminally-ill 25-year-old girl with all the thought you might give to blowing out a match! Only then, once the cold-blooded deed was done... Only then did you apply your scientific genius to study the disease and discover the cure that would've saved the real Angela Blake! That, it sickens me to say, is typical of the true Lex Luthor... The Luthor I have grown over the years to despise and detest! Quote2.png
