The trade collecting issues #1-5 of Lex Luthor: Man of Steel (also known simply as Luthor) tells the Superman story from the perspective of Lex Luthor. And from his perspective, we see Superman from another angle; we see him as an alien who has essentially invaded Earth, a threat to humanity. Likewise, we see how Lex Luthor views himself not as a villain, but as a hero of humankind, the only person willing to stand up to this seemingly unstoppable alien threat.
So, as he is wont to do, Lex Luthor creates a master plan. He “recruits” a scientist from Russia, manipulates Bruce Wayne into giving up technology, and bullies a union while creating his new Science Spire in Metropolis
