Clancy Brown's Luthor from Superman the Animated Series is about as close to giving a rat's ass about this character that I've come.

The Luthor half is pretty good but doesn't quite make sense. If Hope is a robot then why did Luthor need a medical cure for brain problem? Did Superman just kill a cyborg? Did Superman just beat up Batman because Batman had some kryptonite? It's established that Batman has kryptonite and Superman deals and even if this is some alternate reality...then Superman just crushed a container of Kryptonite, getting the dust all over his hand. Which doesn't make sense.

As for the Joker half... well that

Ottimo, bellissimo il modo in cui è esposto il punto di vista di Luthor nei confronti di Superman, disposto a sacrificare tutto pur di far aprire gli occhi alla gente nei confronti dell'alieno. E poi il Joker, bhe che dire ?!? semplicemente folle !! 5 stelle meritate !!!
