Written by Brian Azzarello
Art and cover by Lee Bermejo

Superman has been called many things, from the defender of Truth, Justice and the American way to the Big Blue Boy Scout. In the new 5-issue miniseries LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, he’ll be called something he never has before: a dangerous threat to all humanity!

Fresh off his dynamic run on SUPERMAN, Brian Azzarello teams up with Lee Bermejo (BATMAN/DEATHBLOW) for a bold story in which readers get a glimpse into the mind of Lex Luthor. Long considered one of DC’s most vile villains, MAN OF STEEL reveals why Luthor chooses to be the proverbial thorn in Superman’s side — simply put, to save humanity from an untrusted alien being. Or, as Azzarello himself puts it, “In this story, Superman is the villain.”
