DC Comics, Lex Luthor, #15

And... done! This is my last Lex ficlet for the philosophy_20 challenge. So I just leaved plausibility at the door and wrote for the sheer heck and joy of it.

Title: Finale
Fandom: DC Comics
Prompt: #15, Infinity
Word Count: A hundred and change.
Rating: PG13
Disclaimer: Lex belongs to DC Comics. DC Comics belongs to a
company that belongs to a company, etc, that Luthor bought once with
spare change.
Summary: It's a life's end.


He had worn unique, exclusively designed suits. He had worn battle armor forged in Hell. He had worn other people's bodies, and other people's wills, and once, even, he had worn a demigod's golden skin.

Now he was standing naked on the edge of the tallest rooftop of Metropolis, the city's daytime hustle roaring up to him with an added, if not unusual, note of joy. Last night, Superman had saved the world yet again.

It didn't occur to Luthor to either leave a parting word or plan a last attack against anybody. He was done with the world and everybody in it.

Luthor jumped from the rooftop.

His ascending trajectory accelerated quickly, taking him to the stars.

.finis.
