Lex Luthor, Jr. was the son of Lex Luthor.
Lex Luthor, Jr. was born in Hong Kong. His mother died in childbirth and his father shunned the boy, because of his disfigurement. Lex, Sr. sent him to Australia, where Luthor was raised by servants behind closed walls.
In 1992, Luthor recruited a struggling actor, whom he reinvented as businessman Leslie Luckabee. Through Luckabee, Luthor built his own corporation. In 1997, Luthor headed to Metropolis with Luckabee. Taking out CEOs of various corporations, Luthor was able to rebuild LexCorp. However, just like his father, Luthor, Jr. was obsessed with Lois Lane. He wanted to possess her, so he kidnapped her. Luthor was ultimately killed by Luckabee.
