Anonymous - How can Lex Luthor, who has no powers, be Superman's arch enemy?

Muhammad Rasheed - Lazy, hack writing. That’s all. There is no other explanation.

Superman clearly has superhuman intelligence, at bare minimum needed to negotiate the world as he’s moving at super-speed. Obviously, he has the ability to take in, process and analyze information far beyond the capabilities of any earth mortal. His insight, understanding, wisdom, and strategist abilities are superhuman. The very IDEA that this “Lex Luthor” is the “arch enemy” of the Superman is so far-fetched, it challenges my genre fan willingness to suspend belief to the point where I absolutely CAN’T. It’s just too stupid.

The most credible way to write Superman stories is to use your embarrassingly dormant IMAGINATION to friggin’ INVENT appropriate challenges that match the Kryptonian’s power levels and push all of the mere mortals to the back of the stage to sit in their proper place as props and doorstops.

MEDIUM: Scanned pen & ink cartoon drawing w/Adobe Photoshop color.
