The thought of Lex beating Superman grew more and more ridiculous until I got to the point of "it's plain stupid", all Superman needs to do is use his super breath to freeze Luthor in place
President Luthor I can view as a threat, constitution blah blah citizen hitting the leader and that kind of BS

Though things like the red sun watch shouldn't be beyond Lex's ability to create.
A woman can move a lot faster with her skirt up than a man can with his pants down.
We know that in "Last Son", Lex had a Kryptonite laser rifle and pistol. He also had a red sun flame thrower. According to the JLA tie-in issues of "Return Of Doomsday", Dick stated that Bruce had a cache of weapons made to deal with Kryptonians. This was obviously done between the conclusion of "Last Son" and before "R.I.P." and "Final Crisis", since Bruce didn't have them when Zod and his crew took over.
neither one is a real threat to Superman. He could kill them with ease if he wished too.
The only reasons they are threats is because of kryptonite. And y that logic any genius with some kryptonite is a threat to Superman. But odds are Superman should best them 90% of the time

"No weapon formed against them could prosper."
Kryptonite is a threat. So is red solar energy and magic. Not to mention using something that would physically wear him down, like Doomsday did.
2) Unlike Bruce, killing "the alien" is one of Lex's main objective sin life.
3) Kal and Bruce are friends.
4) However, there's the whole Tower Of Babel thing. Who's to say Bruce doesn't have a "backup plan" this time around?

Goodbye León (november 16th, 1993 - june 12th, 2009). You were, are and always will be the best friend I ever had. I will always love you and never forget you. And please, please forgive me.
Thank you for teaching me about love, patience and caring. Rest in Peace, my friend. I hope that wherever it is you are now, you can run and play as much as you want.
That's the point. Clark told Bruce to make sure that if he went rogue, or became a danger that he would do what was necessary. So Bruce did spend his time working on ways to take Clark down. And as soon as he lost the ring, Bruce went and began looking for alternatives. Considering how well Bruce multitasks, it's not unreasonable for him to spend a good amount of time on that. Even Lex had other things occupying his time.Originally Posted by 666MasterOfPuppets
