Lex Luthor's Power Armor is taken to the next level as he attempts once again to defeat the ever-elusive hero, Superman!
About this creation
Lex Luthor has built an even bigger and more dangerous Power Suit. Can Superman survive?
Ok, so now breaking the fourth wall:
This year for my birthday, I got set #6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex, and I thought it was a great set. However, I did think the "Power Armor" was just a little subtle for Lex Luthor--one of the greatest evil geniuses of all time. On top of that, I had just tried my first attempt at making a Mech, and thought I could use some of the comments I got on it to good use by trying again. Finally, to further the level of challenge, I decided to use all of the pieces in the set, the basic concept from the set, but just take them all to the next level (as if lex had gathered up the broken pieces of his failure and used them to build something even better!) And I thought it would be fun to present it in a tongue-in-cheek format--like a comic book.
In retrospect, it doesn't seem too original, but it sure was fun to build. I hope you enjoy. Below are pictures of the build.

Legs and hips.
Left arm (without green plating so you can see some basic machinery inside).
Thanks for stopping by, all feedback and comments appreciated.
