"This was supposed to be my crowning achievement. A perfect marriage of architecture and technology. The biggest, grandest, most highly advanced structure in Metropolis."
Lex Luthor[src]

LexCorp Tower is the headquarters of LexCorp Industries, located in downtown Metropolis.

History

Creation

In 1974, LexCorp was founded by Alexander Luthor Sr., an immigrant from East Germany, and had its headquarters built in downtown Metropolis. In the year 2000, he passed away leaving the company in the hands of his son, Alexander "Lex" Luthor Jr., who had managed to turn the company into a massive corporate giant researching in the latest of technology.[1]

Battle of Metropolis

Following the Showdown in SmallvilleGeneral Zod and his forces of the Sword of Rao had regrouped and deployed both the Black Zero and the world engine with the Black Zero landing in Metropolis. Zod had begun to terraform the Earth and turn it into a new Krypton when Superman arrived and managed to defeat Zod's forces with the help of the United States Military. Eventually, Zod and Superman engaged each other in a one on one battle and they soon wound up fighting atop the half-built LexCorp Tower. The construction site, which had been labelled accident-free for over 106 days was subsequently destroyed in the ensuing fight.[2]

Reconstruction

A day after the Battle of Metropolis, Lex Luthor announced his plans to immediately proceed with the reconstruction of LexCorp Tower.[3] In connection to this, he also revealed his intentions to invest in more properties within Metropolis.[4]

In the immediate aftermath of the battle and Lex's announcement, the Daily Planet reported that Lexcorp Tower's Construction had projected it to become the tallest building in Metropolis upon completion.[5]

Sometime later, Lex stood amongst the ruins of the LexCorp Tower and conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for the building's reconstruction, where several reporters were present, asking him about his plans for the city and the reactions to his decisions.[6]

By 2015, the tower was completely rebuilt and served as Lex's main headquarters. In his machinations to turn Superman against Batman, Lex kidnapped Lois and lured Superman to the LexCorp Tower, where he offered his ultimatum to kill Batman in exchange for Martha Kent.

Later, as the Showdown in Gotham Port commenced, Doomsday leapt from Heroes Park to the top of LexCorp Tower to wreak havoc on Metropolis. Military helicopters arrived to fire upon Doomsday, but he adapted his physiology and emitted a shockwave that heavily damaged the LexCorp Tower before Superman flew him off into space.[7]
