Lex Luthor was a brilliant scientist who admired Superboy and had even developed an antidote for Kryponite. However, when a fire broke out in Luthor's lab, Superboy used his super-breath to put out the fire. Unfortunately, the chemicals in the lab caused Luthor's hair to fall out permanently, which he blamed on Superboy, claiming that he was jealous of Luthor's genius. He constantly contended with Superboy even into adulthood when the latter became Superman, and became the main villain of the Super Friends, plotting various schemes both by himself and with the Legion of Doom to destroy both them and his main nemesis Superman.
