Greetings Bat boys and girls. Time for a new match-up. Lex Luthor vs. Batman. Just to reiterate, we’re using the same criteria as Superman vs. Batman.
We’ll be looking at Jeph Loeb’s Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. If you’re not familiar with the plot, Lex puts a bounty on Superman’s head and Bats help Big Blue get out of trouble. Especially considering Lex is the President at this point in continuity. Now, to business kids.

There are times where you have to put your trust in "The Powers That Be" of any continuing interest of yours.
Be it a new front office regime of your favorite professional sports franchise, a new show runner and writing staff for your favorite television program or a new producer taking the reign of a movie franchise. Things have gotten bad, but give them time to turn things around and who knows, a championship run, a stretch of great shows, or the property soaring…
