Host Anthony Desiato digs into the mid-2000s era of Luthor, when Pre-Crisis elements of the character's history returned, with guest Bernie Gerstmayr. Anthony and Bernie discuss this melding of Lex as depicted in comics ("Public Enemies," BIRTHRIGHT, SECRET ORIGIN, and more) and television (SMALLVILLE and SUPERGIRL).

This is Part 3 of "The Villain of the Story," a multi-part event examining Superman's ultimate opponent, Lex Luthor, across time and media. Come back next Tuesday (6/28) for the conclusion as Anthony and guest Ralph Puma consider Luthor as an ideologue.

Digging for Kryptonite is a Flat Squirrel Production. Key art by Gregg Schigiel and theme music by Basic Printer.
