Lex was raised by his abusive father, to survive at any means. He also had lots of rage and anger inside him, that rage drove him to brutally beat his boarding school friend to a pulp. His desire to solve and understand Veritas (A way to control Clark AKA the traveler) drove him to madness, even to the point of killing his own father. Once Lex found out who the Traveler was he tried to control him, he thought he would be saving mankind from Clark, but instead brought the whole fortress down on top of himself. Lex came back paralyzed and hidden from society only to be killed by Green Arrow. Lex had cloned himself so that he could rebuild his body, in the finale he was rebuilt. In a meeting with Tess Mercer (Lex's Sister)he stabs her thinking that he wis saving her from becoming him. In her last moment she infects Lex with a neurotoxin that will erase all his memory, Cuts to a sequence of all his bad memories getting erased, his finale memory is Clark and him the fortress.
Now wouldn't Lex be a good man with everything that made him evil gone, tell me what you think.

The finale did kinda speculate that Lex could have had a second chance at living his life right but knowing Lex, he would have somehow probably went back to being his old self. He probably would have gone through the achives of his life, researching everything from his family to his business ventures and even his close calls of death. Chances are this would lead him to be the philanthropist that Metropolis loves after learning about Lionel. He would want to get on the people's good side. BTW, Lex's actual body was never inside the moving truck in the episode, "Requiem". Instead it was one of his early failed clones that was placed in as a precaution. The light that was seen at the same time on Lex as the truck exploded was an experimental healing procedure to heal his external and internal injuries. When it failed, he was put into a medically induced coma. That was when they decided to use what healthy parts of the clones that survived and surgically implant and transfer to Lex. His heart was badly damaged and needed to be transplanted and the rest is in Smallville history. Not many people know this.

wouldn't Smallville be better off if everyone forgot it?

At the end of the series, Lex was left a husk of a man due to the fact that he had all these negative emotions and no memory of why he had them. I think that it was these emotions that resulted in him becoming the man who he was destined to be.
Summary: Emotions are a B1t(h

I think throughout the whole series Lex shows that he wants to be good but he just can't . He wants to be like Clark, but he the bad always overcomes the good with Lex. So even with a clean slate, I think he would still be bad.

Well, with the evil alternate Clark, they hammered in the point that Lionels's influence is what corrupts. Lex doesn't have that anymore and he isn't just naturally evil. They had taken him all the way to being villainous Lex so I think it ws a bad decision. However, Warrior's explanation makes sense.

Didn't the real Lex Luthor (In this show anyway) get blown up by Ollie. So, to say whether or not this Lex is bad or not is irrelevant because it wasn't even the real Lex (HEADACHE)

@corndogBurglar

The show would have been better had it gone away after season 3. After that it just went stupid super fast (Pun intended).

Yea, I didn't really like that part either but I guess they had to do it so it lined up with everything else.

It would have been really cool to see a version of Superman though where Lex knows everything about him cause it would even the score a little.

Explanation: The smallville writing after season 6 is perhaps some of the worst thought out stuff ever.

@Deadshot....Best explanation on this thread, outside of CordDogBurglar's.
BarryKent - 7/12/2011, 10:39 AM
well I still think he is naturally evil, even clark luthor in the end became good, so on the other side is lex, just evil.

I'd like to think that Lex is more psychotic than evil. It makes him more interesing.

Would have been so much better if they let him keep all his memories. It would make him so much more complex if they decided to continue canon off of it in the comics (also explains why Cyborg's in the Justice League).

I think it was a good idea about the memory loss but I think the toxin should of just erased his memories of Clark so he doesn't remember him but he will still have the traumatic memories of his father. If Lex never met Clark I think he would of killed his father much earlier than Season 7 and then become the Lex he was destined to become.
