I mentioned this yesterday when I posted the first chapter of my new WIP "The Light and The Silence" and promised scans of. It's an Elseworlds Superman story, but with additional Batman. Sadly, it is also from the nineties.
Plot: "I'm a little matter-of-fact about planning the genocide of my race..."
Art: The Nineties. Do not click if you fear Leprechaun!Lex and grinning Batman.
Fashion: This makes Superman's suit look very fashionable.
Narrator: Shut up
Dialogue: Snarky!Lex for the win.
The whole thing makes very little sense, but it makes up for it by having a non-evil Lex. Which is a true rarity. I think the equation goes like this:
Superman + Peaceful times = evil Lex
No Superman= 50/50 evil/good Lex
Superman + Alien invasion = good Lex + team-up
So all Smallville needs is an alien invasion.
(Disclaimer: I neither own this nor scanned it myself. I figure it would probably be quite hard to get.)( Ten large scans )
As you can see, this story has inspired my fic quite a bit. The Kents as servants to Kal or the Els (I don't know which), Kryptonian fashion, the invasion, Bruce as terrorist. However cool this Lex was, though, he has pretty little to do with the Lex in my fic and neither has the plot.
