You'd have to look very hard to find someone on the planet Earth that hasn't heard of Lex Luthor. Metropolis' favourite son and (formerly) known as the Man of Tomorrow, Lex and his company Lex Corp's influence is felt around the world, a person could (and many do) wake up in a building built by LexCorp, get into a car designed by Lex Automotive, fill up at LexCo gas station on their way to their job at LexCorp or one of its many subsidiaries, and on the way home stop at a LexMart for groceries before settling in to watch one of the LexCorp family of channels and streaming services on TV. Even the less fortunate are helped find housing through the Luthor Foundation and medical care at one of the many LexCares Free Clinics.

As for the man himself? He's something of an enigma, widely hailed as a 'genius' and touted for his philanthropy, there are still all those pieces in the Daily Planet that paint Lex, less like a 'billionaire saviour' than a ruthless corporate raider with good PR.

Timeline:
1980: Lex Luthor is born in Metropolis. He grows up in the Suicide Slums with abusive parents and his younger sister Lena born five years later.

1990: Already interested in science and technology Lex steals money from his parents and travels alone to New York City to attend the opening of the Baxter Building. He witnesses the battle between the Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom, and is inspired to model his life after both Reed Richards and Doctor Doom.

1996: Lex is accepted to MiT at 16 with a full scholarship, though before he leaves for school his parents suffer a fatal car crash and he becomes the beneficiary of a large life insurance policy taken out in their name. Lex successfully emancipates himself and is granted guardianship of Lena.

2000: Graduates with a masters in programming and engineering. Joins a business venture with some classmates using a new investment algorithm. It is successful and they each make their first millions, though Lex uses legal trickery to gain the patent on the algorithm and outst his classmates from the company that becomes LexCorp.

2000-2008: Under Lex's leadership LexCorp acquires tech, petrochemical, manufacturing and media companies exponentially expanding the company's reach. Most of these businesses are moved to Metropolis to the delight of city politicians. Additionally Lex, now a billionaire at 23, founds the Luthor Foundation which does charity work worldwide; the foundation along with his lawyers and PR people keep the ruthlessness of the expansion out of the press and courts.

2008: The engines fail on Lex's flagship sub-orbital plane the Constitution and he and the other passengers are saved by Superman in front of a massive crowd at Metropolis' 350th Anniversary celebration. LexAir fails as a result of the near crash and LexCorp stock dips for the first time since its incorporation, Lex revolted and intrigued by this alien superman and it becomes an obsession.

2009-2010: Lex is forced dabble in criminal enterprise to cover losses due to the Constitution disaster, and his shady dealings begin the longtime cat and mouse game between himself and reporters Lois Lane and Clark Kent of the Daily Planet. Lex is never fully able to silence them and they are never fully able to prove he had knowledge of the dealings they uncovered. At the same time Lex begins schemes to test the abilities of Superman and determine his secret identity, none of them succeed but neither is there enough evidence to convict Lex of any wrongdoing.

2011-2013: LexCorp bounces back due to Lex capitalizing on first the tidal wave caused by the battle with Zod and Annihilus and then again a few years later with the attack by the Dominators. LexCorp leads the redevelopment of the damaged areas (save for Gotham's No Man's Land) gaining mountains of good will from the public (and buying up the land for fire sale prices), simultaneously he heaps millions in aid on the survivors of the attacks through the Luthor Foundation.

Timeline2:
2014-2018: Lex's schemes move from testing Superman to destroying him including the creation of Metallo from shards of Kryptonite recovered after the Zod incident. None of the schemes succeed nor are they definitively linked to Lex. However LexCorp continues to thrive, moving more heavily into arms manufacture when Stark Industries unexpectedly stops arms production leaving a void to be filled. LexCorp focuses on anti-superhuman weaponry in both the lethal and non-lethal variety donating millions in the latter to the State of New York following the Mutant Felon Resettlement Act. In 2018 Lex donates funds to erect the Superman memorial in Metropolis and attends the ceremony.

2019-2020: Lex gives an infamous TED Talk about how the world is better off without Superman, hailing it as an opportunity for all those born without god like abilities to stand up and be counted and make a difference in the world. He follows the 2019 talk a book "Building Tomorow" which lays out his thoughts about a world without Superman. Starts 'Tomorrow Grants' to educational and athletics programs across the US, while the Luthor Foundation's 'Lex Cares' programs help provide healthcare to America's poorest citizens.
