Yeah, I think so. Part of the beauty of that story is it's got a timeless feel to it, and can always work with whatever continuity that may come along. Not sure about bringing Hope back if it's not as a villain; then again, maybe just leaving her be altogether is the better option, to bring her back may soften the dramatic impact of her story
BTW It's one of my favourite comics, when the Delux Hardcover 'Luthor' came out, I snatched it up almost immediately. It's a perfect portrayal of Lex, often making him chillingly empathic, combined with a riveting story, breath-taking visuals and an unforgettable ending. Not to mention a haunting angle to the Lex/ Superman relationship. Essential reading :)
I'd say yes for the reasons stated by the above poster. As much as I ultimately loathed "FOR TOMORROW", Azzarello knocked out out of the park here. Loved his take on Lex.
Also looking at Lee Behemjo's rendering of the costume...the resemblance to the DCnU version is quite evident. The seams, the metallic sheen on the 'S', the longer ends of the sleeves...drop the trunks and raise the collar, and there it is. That IS the DCnU suit way back in 2004. Me thinks Jim Lee took a lot of inspiration from this.
Good story, but it doesn't really matter to me whether it's part of continuity.

Still love that line. And the amazing thing is, Kal wasn't lying.
