Alexander Luthor is the Green Man, a former advisor to the Wayne Royal Family and an enemy of the House of El.

Luthor was King Thomas' chief advisor. He was considered a wise and knowledgable man but was in fact arrogant and superstitious. One day, a masked man came to him and warned him that Mount Kristoff would explode in a few days, providing him with detailed plans on how to avert disaster. However, Luthor's pride would not allow him to accept the stranger's advice and he never informed the Waynes. A few days later the mountain did explode and the stranger, a man from the stars with godlike power named Jor-El and his wife Lara saved the kingdom and denounced Luthor to the Waynes, revealing that he had ignored their warnings. Luthor was banished, as his arrogance had almost destroyed the kingdom, and Jor-El and Lara took his post as advisors to the king. Angry and bitter, Luthor journeyed to the erupted mountain and found a magic ring, which granted him great power but also left him disfigured and insane.

Some years later, Luthor attacked the Wayne's and the El's caravan as they journeyed to Amazonia. Luthor intended to kill the El's but destroyed the Wayne's carriage instead. Thomas and Queen Martha were killed but Martha's bastard son Bruce survived unscathed and was merely knocked unconscious. Jor-El chased after Luthor but he managed to escape.[1]

Jor-El and Lara succeeded Thomas and Martha as Bruce, being illegitimate, was ineligible for the throne. Years later the Els' rival King Jefferson approached Luthor to kill Jor-El. He used the ring to enchant an arrow so it could fly for miles and harm the otherwise invulnerable Kryptonian. An archer named Oliver fired the arrow from Hobb Forest to the Castle of El and hit Jor-El in the eye, killing him instantly. Green Man departed, leaving him to the Bat-Prince's wrath.[2] He returned to the Kingdom of Storms and informed Constantine that Jor-El was dead.[3]

Luthor claims that ring speaks to him and told him how to save the world. In the present day he appears to be emotionless and fully controlled by the ring rather than the laughing madman he was in years past.[2]
