Lex Luthor’s traditional birthday is September 28. To commemorate his birthday this year the feature of this episode is LEX LUTHOR: THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, written by James D. Hudnall, drawn by Eduardo Barreto and colored by Adam Kubert. Mike Carlin edited the book.

It is the story of down on his luck writer Paul Sands, who discovers the truth of Lex Luthor’s rise to wealth and power, and endangers his life, and the career of Clark Kent, in the process. It was published in 1989, on May 16th. It was 48 pages long and had cardboard covers, with the cover price of $4.95. I could find no reprint information for this book, so you will have to check the back issue bins of your local comic book store or on the internet.

Lex Luthor’s traditional birthday is September 28, the day after I celebrate my 48th birthday. Thanks once again to the web site http://supermanhomepage.com .
We’ll look at Luthor’s earliest adventures, why he went from having red hair to being bald, and some of his key battles with Superman. There is one planet where Luthor is a hero, but who is a hero to Luthor?
There have been several versions of Luthor in the multiverse of the 1960’s, as well as some interesting IMAGINARY STORIES involving Luthor.
