    >he's no more a threat than the likes of charlatans like Thaddeus Killgrave (remember him?) or Emil Hamilton/Ruin.

    So are you saying no scientists can be a threat? I think it all depends on how they are written.


Right now Luthor is written as a disposable Killgrave/Ruin mad scientist, don't worry about the logic of their motives motives - they're just bad guys!
Mad scientists are stock villians in comics, whereas Luthor is supposed to be Supermans arch-villain, so to reinforce the characters credibility and effectivness you need to make his grudge personal and explain why it is he's a threat. Neither of these things exist at the moment and he's now more of an out-of-his-depth opportunist, in the same vein as he was in the first two movies.

I just can't take that treatment very seriously. \(fear\)
