Quote1.png ...When we needed you most, your league was infiltrated and manipulated into unleashing these malevolent doppelgangers from beyond. You failed to stop yourselves on every metaphorical and literal level... which is why we're going to have to do it. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png Before your body was transformed into living nuclear energy, your name was Nathaniel Tryon. You were a security guard at the Metropolis power plant until a meltdown changed you into this. You hunted down those you blamed for the accident and tried to kill them, but Superman stopped you. You became a metahuman gun-for-hire. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png I - uhn - I softened him up for you. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png Your... "predecessor"... was an inspiration to us all, Superman. This cape and this shield mean something to people, but it is only a starting point. Metropolis will be inspired again. By a human being who can show them how to rise above. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png The question on everyone's lips... How is it possible that a hero declared dead... a man who'd proclaimed to be both Superman and Clark Kent... can still be alive as two distantly different people? Quote2.png

Quote1.png Superman is ours. The only way you get him-- is over OUR DEAD BODIES. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png It's so easy to resent him. Human beings are complex and confusing, they are a churning mass of desires and fears at any given moment. A white noise of bemusement. We are not binary. Good and evil would be blissful definitions. Unattainable certainty. Forever out of reach. He, however, is good. It is so easy, to resent him... Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png As for the so-called Superman - one never attacks a stronger opponent head on... you use his own strength against him. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png The fact is, Batman, there wasn't a single occurrence of metahuman violence or extraterrestrial or interdimensional incursion until you all showed up. When we needed you most, your league was infiltrated and manipulated into unleashing these malevolent doppelgangers from beyond. You failed to stop yourselves on every metaphorical and literal level... which is why we're going to have to do it. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png I may not be as strong or as powerful as you, Alexander... but I'm smarter. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png The Justice League needs to be prepared for whatever's coming from the Syndicate's world. If the Syndicate took the League down, they aren't. We need to make them ready. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png It's time for this universe to meet its maker. It's time for them to tremble at doom's might. Together, we will show them the meaning of faith. Now... hold the orb in your mind... and turn it. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png We should never have turned to the stars for guidance. If there is an answer, it's here on Earth with us. For years, I thought Superman was trying to be the answer to that infernal equation, and I hated him for that. But I see now what his actions say -- there is no answer. Figure it out for yourself how to be better, as he is trying to do... Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png Visitors? Finally. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png This is a tale of imperfection. It begins with an ending and ends with a beginning. A villain is the hero, and a hero is the villain. Its main character remains behind the scenes. It ends in birth, and it begins in blood. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png 'Ah, the "infamous" Lobo...bested by mere children. Quote2.png

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

--Alexander Luthor (Prime Earth)

Quote1.png We may have been opponents, alien. Even adversaries. But at the end of the day, even we know that Superman... is on the side of life. Quote2.png
