If u guys go to like preclox, or even lex's page and other pages, the information giving and also given in the show shows that Lex Luthor, the true one that was killed by Oliver and the one that grew up with clark is truly dead its just a clone of him survived and is the lex luthor that fulfills the dark destiny as clark's enemy. I can give some more proff if i have to but if u look back at preclox info, lex luthor info and even watch the seasons again isnt the real lex luthor we watched for seven seasons still tetnically dead? its always going to haunt me whenever i watch about the show and truthfully i wish the writers didnt do that. To me it doesnt feel like the real lex exists. Maybe if we had michael for more episodes it may have been a little eaiser to fit in with but nope.
