"My brother hurt a lot of good, innocent people. My family owes a debt, not just to Metropolis, but to everyone. I intend to pay that. By renaming my company L-Corp, we will usher in a new age of cooperation and community. Together, we will chart a brighter future."
Lena Luthor[src]

L-Corp, formerly known as Luthor Corp, is a company located in National City, formerly located in Metropolis. It was founded by Lionel Luthor and run primarily by the Luthor family.

History[]

Luthor Corp was founded by Lionel Luthor in Metropolis. At some point after his death, the company was passed on to his son, Lex Luthor. Lionel's wife, Lillian, became a board member of Luthor Corp during Lex's tenure as CEO, and practically acted as one of his accomplices.[1]

In October 2016, following Lex's incarceration, his half-sister, Lena Luthor, took over Luthor Corp and moved its base of operations to National City. She renamed the company to L-Corp, hoping to make a better name for herself after Lex tarnished the reputation of the Luthor name with his criminal activities. Lena held an unveiling of L-Corp to the press, which was attacked by John Corben.[2]

Soon after the company renaming, Lena led the now-reformed L-Corp into one of its first business ventures; the development of an advanced, handheld alien detection device that she intended to supply to the public in preparation for the impending enactment of President Olivia Marsdin’s Alien Amnesty Act; the specialized contraption marketed by L-Corp would allow actual humans to identify human-esque aliens secretly living amongst them on Earth through a DNA test. Lena presented a beta version of the device to Kara Danvers during an interview with CatCo Worldwide Media since the prototype was still being developed by L-Corp's R&D.[3]

Around or after spring 2017, Lena acquired Spheerical Industries and converted it into L-Corp's nano-tech division.[4]

After Lena's purchase of CatCo Worldwide Media, she hired Samantha Arias as the acting CEO of L-Corp while the former became familiar with the media conglomerate.[5] Shortly after, Samantha transitioned to being the CFO of L-Corp, though still partially held the CEO position on Lena's behalf.[6]

Under Samantha's leadership, L-Corp completed a merger with JQB. Morgan Edge attempted to undermine the deal by filing an anti-trust lawsuit with the Federal Trade Commission, but Samantha was able to prevent this.[6]

After it was revealed that numerous children in National City fell ill from swimming in a contaminated public pool, L-Corp created a synthetic antidote, which saved everyone who was infected.[7] Lena's name was cleared over her involvement in the supposed connection with the lead bomb device that was used to defeat the Daxamite invasion.

Over summer 2018, L-Corp sold many image inducers to extraterrestrials under Lena's direction, in part due to the anti-alien sentiment sweeping through the nation.[8]

Erased future[]

In the 25th century, L-Corp developed a cure for lead poisoning, allowing Daxamite individuals such as Mon-El to live freely on Earth despite a natural toxicity to lead.[9]

Behind the scenes[]

  • In the DC comics, the company is owned by Lex Luthor and is named LexCorp, although the name "Luthor Corp" was also used in a few cases.
    • Also, in the DC comics, the company is located in Metropolis, though divisions of it exist in other cities.

Goofs[]

  • L-Corp is often pronounced as ”L-core” similar to the pronunciation of ”Marine Corps”. Since L-Corp is a corporation, not a military or service branch, it should be pronounced with a hard P.
