Luthor Corp or LuthorCorp is a company owned by the Luthor family and run by Lex Luthor. It is one of the main businesses of both Metropolis[1] and National City[2], as well as one of the most powerful multibillion-dollar corporations on the planet. Two of its subsidiaries are the D.E.O. and Luthor Foundation.

History

Luthor Corp was founded by the Luthor family in Metropolis. At some point, the company was passed on to Lex and Lena Luthor, with the former acting as Luthor Corp's main representative and CEO. Their mother, Lillian Luthor, became the director of Luthor Foundation, one of the company's subsidiaries.[2]

Since the D.E.O. is a subsidiary of Luthor Corp,[3] J'onn J'onzz uses that as partial inspiration to create the Tower.[2]

As an employee of Luthor Corp, Querl Dox answers to Lex Luthor; when Brainy discussed the destruction of D.E.O. National City headquarters with his boss, Lex laughs, saying that it is little more than a tax write-off.[4]

Lena reasons with Andrea

Via transit, Lena and Kara Danvers arrive here so Lena can make a protective suit for Supergirl. They leave before the suit is finished. When they return bringing Eve Teschmacher, Supergirl goes into Obsidian Platinum to dissuade people from using it. As she was helpless with her mind in VR, Lena protected her from attack from Acrata. Supergirl then reunites Eve Teschmacher's mother with Eve, as Lena and Kara reconcile their friendship and decide to try to stop Lex's schemes.[5]

During the trial of Lex Luthor, Lillian sold her shares of LuthorCorp to Lena, giving Lena majority control of the company. After Lex was acquitted,[6] Lex attempted access to his files, but Lena and Querl Dox set programs to deny him, causing Lex to get a favor from the State Attorney that the top lawyer would investigate Non Nocere. In order to stop the investigation and to purge herself of the resentment she held for Lex, Lena acquiesced and gave Lex full control of the company.[7]

John Henry Irons, upon meeting Lois Lane in Smallville, tells her that he is Marcus Bridgewater and once worked for Luthor Corp.[8] Lois, however, questions the story [9] and has Chrissy Beppo research it.[10]
