Lex Luthor obtained a sophisticated alien battlesuit on his adopted home planet of Lexor while he was living there shortly before its total destruction. Subsequently, Luthor used the Lexorian armor in many battles with his archenemy, Superman.
The original Warsuit was a LexCorp prototype that Superman was forced to fight. However, due to he fact that the untested weapon drove its user insane, Superman was unable to pin anything on Luthor and was forced to pull back.
Years later, Lex Luthor obtained a specially made Warsuit built on Apokolips and used it when his plan to blame Superman for a falling Kryptonite meteor failed. The suit made him even with Superman, but the Man of Steel was able to fight back and disable it, though Luthor used a Boom Tube to escape capture. A second suit found itself in many hands before Luthor regained it. However, it was destroyed by Superboy-Prime.
Luthor would design one last sleeker design in his attempt to hunt down the Black Ring.
- Super strength, durability, flight, force field generation all across the armor and seemingly unprotected head from the torso of the powered armor, Kryptonite energy blasts, energy blade in right gauntlet. 
- Green Kryptonite energy generator in right forefinger, red Kryptonite energy generator in middle finger, blue Kryptonite energy generator in ringfinger, and black Kryptonite energy generator in pinky finger. 
- Blue energy blasts from left gauntlet (which went clean through Starfire's right shoulder), super strength and durability, and energy shield in the left gauntlet. 
- Sharp, green Kryptonite energy spike from right arm's under armor, flight at super speed due to jets in boots, and electrical surge generated across armor by pressing button on left palm. 
- The original warsuit was introduced in Action Comics #544. The Post-Crisis version of the suit debuted in Man of Steel #5.
- Lex Luthor's warsuit is not to be confused with the LX-20 Body Armor worn by Lex during the years when he was masquerading as his own son, Lex Luthor the Second.
