Ten Moments that Mattered: Lex Luthor Joins the Justice League

From DC Comics / Author Tim Beedle

With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.

Since its introduction in 1960, the Justice League’s lineup has always been fairly fluid. It’s remained pretty consistent since the introduction of The New 52, but longtime readers knew that eventually the roster would change and new members would be introduced.

However, it’s unlikely anyone suspected one of them would be Lex Luthor.

Yes, as if Lex’s contributions in taking down the Crime Syndicate in Geoff Johns’ Forever Evil weren’t surprising enough, Johns followed it up with the Justice League storyline “Injustice League,” which found Lex joining the team. Is it possible one of the most destructive villains in the entire DC Universe has turned over a new leaf?
