Move over Big Blue a new Man of Steel is in town. Lex Luthor,now President of the United States has the resources of a entire nation at his disposal. But he knew his time as President would not last forever. So he devised a plan to destroy Superman once and for all. He gathered together the most brilliant scientists and brought them to LexCorp. They were told to construct an armored suit powerful enough to take down the entire Justice League. He convinced the scientist it was their patriotic duty to make the suit in case the League ever went rogue and threatened the United States. Little did they know they were creating the most powerful suit ever made for a madman with a vendetta against the Last son of Krypton.

While making this custom I ran into alot of problems, but none was bigger than his color scheme. Who besides the Joker would paint a war machine green and purple. I was tempted to paint him metallic silver and black but then it would not have looked like Lex's suit. So I decided to base coat the entire figure in black, then I drybrushed silver over it. Then for the green parts I used several coats of clear tamiya green and for the purple parts I layered just a little purple over the silver, so it still looks metallic but have a purple tint as well. Hope you guys dig him. Thanks for looking. Special thanks to countpinchula for the Monev figure.

Recipe:
Monev the Gale body and arms
Creech's gauntlets
Hulbuster Iron man legs
DC universe 2 pack Lex Luthor head

Very well deserved indeed I had to show this one to all my friends and they all thought it was amazing. My wife responded that is the Fig that they should have made for Public Enemies and that from a woman who hates superman. SO great job you got what you deserved congrats bro.

This is well deserved my friend. Not only its' one of the most imposing, it is the most appropriate as well. Lex really "Armoured-up" here! And the result is awe-inspiring. Cheers!

I can't believe I got third place!!! With such great looking customs and such tight competition I would have been happy ranking in the top ten. This is a total surprise. I am extremely humbled to be in the top 3 with FastFreddie and Loosecolletor who I consider master Customizers. Thanks to everyone that took the time to look at my custom and voted for me.

Lex Luthor has the power to bring down the man of steel and this armored up power suit proves the point! Fantastic custom and I wish I hadn't of threw my Monev the Gale away a few years ago, but he kept on taking a triple lindy off the top shelf. I love your combo of the parts to make this MASSIVE METAL MONSTER! Hope you win!

Now that is armored up! Not just a helmet or some shin pads. Full of win.
