It’s not just DC’s superheroes that are getting makeovers in the new post-Convergence comic books, dubbed “DC You”; the villains are too! Just as rumors have begun to swirl that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will don his iconic green and purple powersuit in Batman v Superman, the comic Lex is upgrading to look that’s a bit more cyberpunk.
The revelation comes from one of DC’s latest preview comics for their post-Convergence publishing shakeups, this time for Batman/Superman, which sees Superman and the new Batman come to blows following Superman’s identity crisis. Eventually, Lex steps in to offer help, revealing his nifty new look:
Half-fingerless robo gloves? Bulky powersuit replaced by a trench coat? Fabulous neon green shades? Lex just got the call that cyberpunk is a hot aesthetic right now, and he is loving it.
Is it just me that the gem-like look to those shades make it look like they could be Kryptonite-lensed? Which, if true, is the exact sort of dumb comic book thing I can get behind.
