Lena Luthor is Lex Luthor's paraplegic sister.

When Lex Luthor was seventeen years old, his sister grew ill. Though he hoped he could save her, his attempt failed, consigning her to a wheelchair for life. Rather than face his failure, he told others that she was dead, and that he had been too afraid to fail in an attempt to save her.[2]

However, Lena was alive and kept in Lex's personal, secret lab at LexCorp. She was introduced to Bruce Wayne there after her brother became a member of the Justice League. After joining that team, Luthor claimed to Wayne that he planned to cure his sister, a change from his previous behavior of leaving her alone to ignore his failure. When Neutron attacked LexCorp, an explosion rocked the interior of the headquarters, and Lena was caught in the blast. Though she was knocked unconscious, Lena survived and her brother told Wayne to get her to safety.[3] Twenty-four hours after the outbreak of the Amazo Virus as an unintended result of Neutron's attack, Captain Cold had gotten Lena, apparently not infected, to safety from the outbreak.[4]

During the start of the Darkseid War, while presumably being controlled by Apokolips' forces, Lena shot her brother and used a Mother Box to send Lex and Superman to Apokolips.[5] After that, she went into a coma. Lex unsuccessfully tried to wake Lena up using his own Mother Box.[6]
