Reviews for Lex Luthor, a true Patriot
Rick James chapter 1 . 7/4/2013
Probably the worst piece of fan fic I've ever read. Terrible plot, pacing and development. Please don't write anymore stories as no one deserves to have their IQ drop 30 points from reading such mindless dribble.

You know, this is one of the first fan fictions I have read, I was so used to all those terrible ones people do as parody that result in readings by different youtube personalities, but THIS, is sublime so far!
One nit picky thing to note is this though:

"Damn!" Snake thought to himself, "getting old sucks,".

I have not played MGS4, but I can imagine he would be used to this enough to not say something like "getting old sucks," not just for snake, but anyone in general.
Instead, maybe he could say something along the lines of:"being old is getting old." though that's a little bit too (corny?) for snake (or anyone for that matter), so I'm not a big expert sadly.

That's my only complaint out of all these 3 amazing chapters so far! I hope there's more! It's a real page turner, so awesome! I'm into this!

I always thought that MGS fits better in the Marvel universe, regardless this is interesting. I'd pay to see Superman and Wonder Woman's expressions if they found out that the American way they fought for was actually bullshit the Patriots came up with in order to control the masses.

Well, I'm hooked. I believe crossovers should be handled with care, so as to avoid creating plot holes when crossing two universes, but so far you've done a good job and this is well within believable boundaries. Also, I really like your writing, with good stealth scenes from Batman on this chapter and a great interaction between Snake and Luthor.
I'll be on the lookout for future updates. It's definitely a fic worth continuing. So, do update, buddy. See you soon.

A world fusion with MGS and the DC universe isn't plausible by any stretch of the imagination, due to all the plot holes that form. And please use past tense...this isn't even a frame narrative. It's your omniscient narrator trying to speak in present tense for some reason.
Guest chapter 2 . 7/1/2012

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

It's like bread and circuses style of governing though it's more like having something worth ruling over like strong brilliant people rather than starving beat down idiots not to help people but to prove how much smarter he is than everyone else

A man's motives are second to his accomplishments say you want to make a statement about the third of the world that is starving to death so you light yourself on fire in front of an embassy but you don't actually help a single person, but if you go to one of those places and offer them jobs to make money and provide for themselves you actually to help and improve their standard of living

Sometimes it's better to deal with one tyrant rather than the other or be left at the mercy of every thug and psychopath sometimes the greatest good for the greatest number just means the least amount of suffering

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

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

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
