Lex Luthor Explains His Mid-Life Crisis in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #4 [Preview]
Lex Luthor has really been going through some stuff recently, completely changing his look, handing out his "dark gift" to pretty much everyone on villain Tinder, and attempting to remake the entire universe in his image.
What's been going on with him?
In this preview, Lex explains how he's basically going through a mid-life crisis.
Nothing seems to work to combat Lex's feelings of inadequacy.
But he's hoping this will finally fill the gaping void in his ego. But there's just one problem standing in his way.
The stupidest character ever created in all of superhero comics: The Batman Who Laughs.
Hell Arisen #4 hits stores on Wednesday.
YEAR OF THE VILLAIN HELL ARISEN #4 (OF 4)

This is it! Lex Luthor has gathered a strike force of villains he's leveled up to be the baddest bad guys around-Captain Cold, Oracle, Solomon Grundy, Black Manta, and Lobo, each and every one a recipient of one of Lex's dark gifts.
But the Batman Who Laughs has his own army of infected heroes. Six hundred sixty-six of them, all transformed into their worst selves.
It's a final showdown between two of DC's most iconic villains, all to curry the favor of Perpetua. Whoever wins will take over the Multiverse alongside her. Does Lex ascend, or does he get laid low? Does the Batman Who Laughs finally remake the DC Universe in his own image? Either way, life for our heroes will never be the same.
