Superman And Lois has been the best DC television we’ve had in a long time. The show continues to impress week after week, and so far we’re loving it. Now Superman And Lois introduces another big DC character to its roster!

Superman And Lois 1×07 spoilers from this moment forward

Tonight’s episode of Superman And Lois was another exciting one! It also revealed a huge twist to the series. Fans have believed for weeks now that the mysterious stranger was actually an alternate Lex Luthor. It made sense, he was being called Captain Luthor after all.

Why is this a problem at all, you may be asking? The issue is that the Arrowverse has established that Crisis has eliminated doppelgangers. It’s impossible to have multiple versions of the same character in one universe.

For those of you just tuning in this world already has a Lex Luthor. Jon Cryer has been portraying Lex Luthor on Supergirl for quite some time now. He’s been phenomenal in the role, as well.

That’s why this alternate Luthor thing had some holes in it. It was always possible it wasn’t Lex. It could have been someone other than Lex, that’s true, but that still would have been a strange decision.

Now we know that this character isn’t actually a Luthor at all. Captain Luthor is actually John Henry Irons. You may recognize that name from DC Comics. He is the hero known as Steel and emerged after Superman was killed by Doomsday.

He was one of four people who tried to claim the Superman mantle after Clark Kent’s death at the hands of Doomsday. He went and created a suit of armor and was the only one to not claim to be the new Superman.

Instead of trying to be the new Superman, he just embodied the Man Of Steel’s ideals. He did his best but unfortunately wasn’t exactly the most powerful of the new Supermen.

It’s pretty exciting that there’s another big DC character on Superman And Lois. We can’t wait to see what happens with Steel going forward!
