...you know, when he was dating Matrix-Supergirl.
She (the martial arts teacher) later came back as some sort of undead personality-copycat or some weird thing like that in one of those Bloodlines annuals.



"Ladies and gentlemen! You've read about it in the newspapers! Now, shudder as you observe, before your very eyes, that most rare and tragic of nature's mistakes! I give you... the average man!"
(by Joker, from The Killing Joke).

Since Lex is now most likely NOT old enough to have had a 21 year old son at that point, and since at least one flashback seems to have shown the usual adult bald Lex being the source of Kon-El's human DNA, then it seems Lex Jr. may have been edited out of the timeline.

I think even the "Look....Up in the Sky..." documentary shows some panels from back during the Lex Jr. period, and the pictures seem to have been reworked so that Lex is BALD in them, with Matrix inches away.

Oh well, I guess if she could fall for him in a beard and think he looked like her creator (the Pocket Universe Lex), I guess she could also fall for him BALD and think the same thing.
