DC Antiquity - Lex Luthor by dustsplat DC Antiquity - Lex Luthor by dustsplat
-Wanted to take the iconic DC characters and redesign them to fit in a more medieval antiquity world. Thinking what type of characters they would grow to be if they had to deal with the morals and ways of living of that era-

Continuing my DC Antiquity series. Decided to do some villains.

The character of Lex luthor is the quintessential white collar criminal. So of course when depicting him in a more medieval setting, i saw him as an Aristocrat, a position where his devious whit and sharp tongue would feel quite at home.

Other characters in the series

Is part of his arm gone to reference when he lost his hand due to Kryptonite exposure?

I'm surprised he's not wearing one of those leafy headdresses the Roman's wore, I could definitely believe he's the ruler of some primitive culture, Czar, Pharoh, Emperor, Viceroy, he's decked out for any position

Awesome work, but isn't Lex's full name Alexander?

He seems like he could fit into those old medieval high royalty court power struggles. Or something like Game of Thrones, something. He just looks so comfy in that costume.

Gorgeous version of a medieval Lex! He'd definitely be a force to be reckoned with in that world.

He was always my favorite villain. Not the Gene Hackman/Kevin Spacey version (too CORNEY) I liked the animated versions. EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT, COLD CALCULATED, JUST COOL. Love the medieval versions line of characters. Let's see more!
