Why do people think Lena will be evil? Of all the Lena Luthor versions just one is really a villain
Why do people always say that Lena has to be evil
if they follow the Comics when she isn’t evil in most of them? And she isn’t
evil in other TV appareances either. Let’s see what we have here:
In the comics
Was first introduced in Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane #23. This
version of her has psychic abilities thanks to one of Lex’s experiments. She
wants to work wih the FBI but they don’t let her because of her past. She joins
a band of criminals only to bring them back to justice and after Supergirl
discovers this she tries to get her that job with the FBI. She’s good and she loses her abilities later.
She first appears in Superman: Secret Origin and then in Adventure Comics. This version of Lena is
paralyzed after an accident. She’s a single mom, she has a daughter, Lori
Luthor. Lex cures Lena but then uncures her and won’t reveal how he
did it until Superman is dead. She’s not evil in this
She’s in The New 52 era
of the DC comics. This version of Lena suffered from G.B. syndrome and when Lex
tried to cure her faster he left her paralyzed. She works in the labs of
Lexcorp and she helps it become a global powerhouse. After a lot of stuff happens
she turns against Lex and becomes a supervillian, Ultrawoman. She gains powers in this version too.
She’s from Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in
the Eighth Grade. She’s Linda (Kara)’s best friend. They attend
the same boarding school. She’s 13 and she’s super smart. She’s actually really
nice and a really good friend, she’s a little antagonistic, not really a
villain though. She blames Supergirl for what happened to Lex but after some
things happen she changes her mind.
I don’t think
Lex’s daugther, Lena Luthor II, counts because that’s not really the same
character. In that universe Lex did have a sister named Lena, who was killed by
their foster father, and he named his daughter after her. His daughter, Lena, was controlled by Brainiac.
In TV shows
She was in Superboy, a TV show
from 1988. Lex and Lena were abused by their father all the time when they were
kids. Lex kills their parents and some years later Lena fakes her death to
escape the Luthor name. When Lex finds out she “died” he tries to destroy the
planet but Lena, who was found by Clark and Lana, stops him. She was good.
She appeared in Smallville initially
as Tess Mercer, who later discovers she’s Lutessa Lena Luthor. She’s the
illegitimate daughter of Lionel and was left in an orphanage when she was five.
She works a lot with Clark and is part of the Checkmate organization. She seemed antagonistic at first but she was good.
And then, we
have our Lena and so far she seems to be nothing but good, and Katie has said so, she’s genuine and honest, what you see is what you get. So I don’t really
think they will turn her into a villain
