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 multi-billion-dollar corporations on the planet.

Two of its subsidiaries are the D.E.O. and Luthor Foundation.


Luthor Corp was founded by the Luthor family in Metropolis. At some point the company was passed on to Lex and Lena Luthor, albeit the former acted as the main representative and CEO, while their mother, Lillian, became the director of Luthor Foundation, and practically acted as one of Lex’s accomplices.[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]
