  • The company that would eventually be known as LexCorp was a company based in Metropolis that was founded in 1970, and by 1988 was owned and operated by Lex Luthor, who branded the name "LexCorp," after his first name. Luthor gained control of the company after reforming himself as a legitimate businessman. LexCorp manufactured the Defendroids, and other state of the art equipment.
  • LexCorp is a company created by Lex Luthor.
  • LexCorp is the company founded by the late Lex Luthor, Sr. and owned and run by his son Lex Luthor, Jr.
  • Through LexCorp, Lex Luthor uses the corporation's limitless resources to finance, support or even create his various plans to feed and further his ambitions whether it is to further a community service project to swing the public's opinion in his favor or to build a new weapon to crush his Kryptonian nemesis; Superman.
  • Originally organized as an aerospace engineering firm, LexCorp has become one of the world's largest, most diversified multinational corporations. Under the astute - some would say, ruthless - management of its founder, Lex Luthor, LexCorp grew and prospered, absorbing scores of smaller businesses. In time, LexCorp gained controlling interest in no fewer than three banks - the Metropolis Mercantile Bank, Commerce Bank of Metropolis, and First Metro Security - and moved into all the major financial markets, absorbing new holdings worldwide.
  • LexCorp was headquartered in Metropolis, and military contracts seemed to be one of the company's main foci. LexCorp military technologies have included the Lexo-Skel Suit 5000, and another prototype battlesuit, eventually used by the hero Steel. Luthor once said that nearly two thirds of the citizens of Metropolis work for him whether they know it or not, suggesting LexCorp held more businesses than was widely known.

  • Originally organized as an aerospace engineering firm, LexCorp has become one of the world's largest, most diversified multinational corporations. Under the astute - some would say, ruthless - management of its founder, Lex Luthor, LexCorp grew and prospered, absorbing scores of smaller businesses. While still in its original offices on the top floor of Metropolis's famed Daily Planet building, LexCorp made its first acquisitions of two then-struggling airlines, Inter-Continental Airlines and Atlantic Coast Air Systems (since renamed LexAir). As LexCorp subsidiaries, the airlines began to prosper and when rising profits were threatened by fuel shortages, LexCorp bought out Southwestern Petroleum, now known as LexOil. For a brief period, the Daily Planet itself came under the ownership of LexCorp, but Luthor quickly became disenchanted with what he considered the low profit margins of the newspaper business. He moved LexCorp's offices into a new high-rise building and began buying up downtown properties in preparation for the day when LexCorp would build its own corporate headquarters. LexCorp soon bought out a Metropolis television station and acquired a satellite transmission company, linking both under the corporation's new LexCom subsidiary as SuperStation WLEX. With a potentially worldwide electronic communications outlet under the LexCorp umbrella, Luthor soon sold the Planet, building and all, to TransNational Enterprises. In time, LexCorp gained controlling interest in no fewer than three banks - the Metropolis Mercantile Bank, Commerce Bank of Metropolis, and First Metro Security - and moved into all the major financial markets, absorbing new holdings worldwide. LexCorp dominated the commerce of the city - and, indeed, of much of the world - from the 96-story L-shaped building which towered above the Metropolis skyline from the eastern tip of the borough of New Troy. It was estimated that LexCorp at its height, either directly or indirectly, employed nearly two-thirds of the city's 11 million people. A majority of local businesses were wholly- or partially-owned subsidiaries of LexCorp. Among those many subsidiaries are such diverse businesses as Advanced Research Laboratories, Secur-Corp Armored Car Service, North American Robotics, Hell's Gate Disposal Services, and the Good Foods Group, owners of Ralli's Family Restaurants and the Koul-Brau Breweries. In addition to its many properties in the greater Metropolis area, LexCorp has domestic holdings in Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, New Orleans, Chicago, Gotham City, and Boston. LexCorp currently maintains financial institutions, research facilities, refineries, and/or manufacturing plants in a score of countries, including Australia, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, France, the Union of South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Singapore, and the free market of Hong Kong.
  • LexCorp was headquartered in Metropolis, and military contracts seemed to be one of the company's main foci. LexCorp military technologies have included the Lexo-Skel Suit 5000, and another prototype battlesuit, eventually used by the hero Steel. Luthor once said that nearly two thirds of the citizens of Metropolis work for him whether they know it or not, suggesting LexCorp held more businesses than was widely known. Luthor was eventually caught and convicted for his numerous criminal activities. During his incarceration, LexCorp was headed by Mercy Graves. Mercy took a more cavalier approach to management, pointedly ignoring Luthor's style and laying off employees (such as Professor Ivo) to save money; by the next time she and Luthor met, she had managed to raise the stock 38%. After he was pardoned by the President during the Justice Lords incident, Luthor regained control of LexCorp. The LexCorp Tower in Metropolis was destroyed by Brainiac when he had his spaceship take off from inside the building, destroying the upper half of the tower. The company's status following Luthor's arrest after the Cadmus Crisis is unknown.
