Really unique story. Update soon.

Some thoughts - does Superman wear a special suit? Lycra didn't exist back then so I am curious as to his "Superman" clothing. Plus norms in those days would not allow him to wear a skin tight and very revealing suit in public.

Luthor discovered a lot from the ship. No mention is made of kryptonite and how it is lethal to Superman and all Kryptonians.

With the ability to build machines based on Kryptonian technology maybe that is what Luthor meant when he said he knows how to beat Superman.

Really unique take on the legend!

Life began on earth, ancient humans were the settlers of Rann, Thanagar, and Krypton

I like Lex being a self made man from the Suicide Slums of Metropolis, he's the reason Metopolis has such a high standard of living, his inventions and leadership got it out of near fatal poverty

When you live in a world of such technology and people with four digit IQs why in the nine hells haven't you solved the world's problems of poverty and disease

A hero teaches the people to take care of themselves, everyone should be given powers and tech, if it's you don't have a four digit IQ so you'll end up blowing up the universe there is no reason those with four digit IQs can' put saftey measures on the tech, it's like the heroes care more about playing Mr. Son of God than helping improve the life of the common man

I like to think Lex like Adrian Veidt in Watchmen can go toe to toe with any non powered hero develop his own fighting style and workout program in addition to being scientific/business/political overall Renaissance man, that his white suit as powerful as his power armor

In the comics Mercy is an Amazon as in Wonder Wonder Woman can go toe to toe with Supes and she has a partner Hope I like to think they're from the Citizenry space Amazons ruled by Wonder Woman's aunt Astarte with guns as powerful as green lantern ring

In my head in addition to Mercy and Hope Luthor also has robots like his power armor and nanotech (Exobytes) to make him like the Darkness and Spawn, and Doomsdays (maybe weredoomsdays) Equus(es?) and Bizaros maybe as well I like him being both tech and biological means to take on Superman and hordes not just one, and all under his thrall with programming, and maybe some 5th dimension imp like HP pixie from Fairly Oddparents

As president Luthor eliminated the national debt, brought unemployment to almost zero, it was HIS leadership that got us through two alien invasions and even the heroes admit without it we would have fallen

You've got a great start for what could prove to be a very interesting story. I'm also glad to see someone else writing fics set in the late-1800s (I crank out mainly Westerns, myself). You've got an anachonism or two in there (pretty sure you're about a decade early for automobiles) but overall, I like your style. Hope you produce another chapter soon, I'd like to see it!

I will always prefer villains who at least have a point and frighteningly may even be right about everyone being better off under their benevolent dictatorship (of course make education great so the common man does know what is best for him and his children's children and democratic republicanism can work) like Ra's al Ghul if the environment isn't brought into balance no matter the means or cost the future for the human race will be worse than any dystopian fiction and will lead to the extinction of the human race not through misadventure but suicide through stupidity or Lex Luthor who as he says if he was calling all the shots could end famine and cure cancer and he could his mind is capable of anything perhaps give everyone ultra high-tech non polluting technology and maybe even superpowers (without the White Martians ancient experiments all humanity would be like the Kryptonians or Daxamites) lead humanity and the rest of the universe to unimaginable glory remember Red Son he united all humanity and led us to a golden age that lasted millions of years, no poverty, disease, war, crime, terrorism, or environmental problems and science and art advance, he’s about the advancement of the human race by any means necessary it’s not that he’s a good man he’s not but he’s right about most things he’s too smart not to be

A lot of villains seem unaware that if they used their mind and/or other talents for legitimate business causes or the government could be far more profitable than any crime spree

Luthor has fanatical Nietzschean beliefs, that Superman undermines humanity’s worth and accomplishments

Of course vigilantes can be sanctimonious hypocrites judging others and letting themselves go unscrutinized condemning others when they do the same thing for less reasons I think it is disgusting they don't share their scientific breakthroughs (of course inventors should be well compensated) with the scientific specifically medical community or their skills with law enforcement agencies far more good than beating up thugs and psychos fight crime at its source ignorance and poverty. I realize due to rarity and complexity mass production may not always be possible or at least cost effective and due to difficulty not all could take brutal training but a little bit could go a very, very long way. A hero doesn’t just save people a hero teaches the people to take care of themselves. The ability to think of future generations when calculating pragmatic utilitarianism is what separates us from the animals. The world is not the way it is because of thugs and psychopaths, corrupt businessmen/politicians (which contrary to fiction are the exception not the rule) but because most people are too stupid to know what is best for them the extreme left and extreme right get caught up in their ideals and refuse to acknowledge brutal facts of reality no real world understanding of the extreme complexities of politics, economics, technological logistics, and how they’re all interconnected in the long run. People want everything right here right now the whole world just handed to them on a silver platter think just by complaining something will happen without a tangible plan. Such a plan will require a lot of long, hard, boring work all day every day for generations.

There will always be some exploitation, the best and brightest will elevate themselves over the common man, it’s nature, best for the species, it improves the standard of living of the human race as a whole, as long as they don’t kill anyone or otherwise actively oppress, free trade and enterprise is the only thing that has ever led to long lasting meaningful peace

I'm glad the government has Suicide Squad, Cadmus, Checkmate, the Elite, Amanda Waller, and the new female Spy Smasher, Cameron Chase I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting accountability from Superheroes, having checks and balances on these living breathing weapons of mass destruction seems quite reasonable to me, one will go left when they should go right and innocent people will die it WILL happen, not saying black ops don’t have their necessity, they can be used as a force of good

Have you heard of The Boys

Say you’re Harry Truman do you drop the bombs or do you drown the home islands in the blood of U.S. Marines, BATMAN has no answer to that question, people hire soldiers so they never have to use moral courage themselves Some villains do need to be put down permanently if they keep escaping and butchering innocents
