Lex Luthor Makes His Debut

Let’s go back to the 1978 movie Superman, where we catch our first glimpse of the supervillain Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) in his own underground lair. He’s preaching about the supremacy of land, while ensconced in a hideout some 200 feet below the surface of Park Avenue in New York City.  Valerie Perrine co-stars as Eve Teschmacher from the shadow organization Leviathan and Ned Beatty as Otis.

In the original comic books, we learned how Eve grew up in North Carolina, where she served as Junior Miss North Carolina. In her high school years, she spent her summers working at a children’s theme park as a bunny mascot.

According to the Arrowverse Wiki, “A woman of prodigious intellect, Eve went to college early and studied at Yale University. However, when she was 16, both of her parents died, leaving Eve depressed, desperate, and piled with debt. In this time, Eve was recruited by the mysterious organization known as Leviathan, who promised to fix all of her problems if she joined them. Later at Yale, Eve studied nuclear physics with Jen Steinmetz-O’Grady. She graduated at the top of her class, majoring in physics and literature. At some point in her life, Leviathan ordered Eve to get close to Lex Luthor so he could ‘move the needle.'”
