9781563896019: Superman: They Saved Luthor's Brain (Superman (DC Comics))

The story of the twisted scientific resurrection of Superman's most formidable enemy.

After a cancer-ridden Lex Luthor dies in a fiery plane crash, a charismatic and young heir suddenly appears to take over the bald megalomaniac's empire. Sporting a full head of vibrant red hair and a thick, authentic Australian accent, Lex Luthor II uses his charm and personality to win the trust of Superman and the affections of Supergirl. But as the city of Metropolis embraces its new son, little do they know that their celebrated savior is in reality a recently cloned body possessing the brain and will of the original Lex Luthor.

Collecting stories from Man of Steel #4, Superman #2, 19, and 21, and Action Comics #600, 660, 668, 670-73, and 676-678.

Written by John Byrne and Roger Stern, and illustrated by Byrne, Jackson Guice, Dick Giordano, Kieron Dwyer, and Bob McLeod.

Review:

"This outrageous pastiche of B-Movie shockers is in actual fact a selective collection of tales that highlight a period of superb creativity from the post-Crisis Superman reboot.  By taking pertinent episodes from a seven-year sub-plot, the assembled creators played with all the comic-book clichés and produced a terrific tale of villainy that perfectly defined the arch-mastermind who will always be Superman's greatest foe." -- Win Wiacek, comicsreview.co.uk

"I have to ask you, is it humanly possible to have a cooler [title] than that? When I saw this baby ... I just had to have it. It's as cool in person as it is in this picture." -- Erin, goodreads.com
