NOTE: As far as Superman goes, I'm going with the Smallville universe.I'm disregarding the comic books, and the movies.
In the Future.
I'm going to kill him. My physical strength is nothing compared to his, and I'm not really a match for his other powers either, but I will find a way to kill him. I'll see Superman dead at my feet. I swear it on the grave on my dead wife. She will be avenged. Even if it costs me everything I have. I lost the only thing that really mattered in my life, and he's to blame.
Her funeral was today. I had to stand at the coffin of the love of my life. I can't forgive Superman for that. I won't. He'll pay.
Clark was at the funeral. Chloe was there too, of course. After all, they had known her for years. Clark talked to me after the service. He tried to tell me that going after Superman was a bad idea. He's right. It is a bad idea. It could get me killed. But I don't care. I'm a Luthor. We get what we want. And I want Superman dead.
I still remember the day I met her. Every detail of it is clear in my mind. It was one of the most important days of my life. It was the day that changed everything.
