So why did they start trending Luthor back to a villain? Over the last few years I felt Jurgens had done a great job of developing him away, and now it seems it's been switched back. He hasn't gone full villain like before, but whatever little trust the two had built seems to be gone. And Superman just writing Lex off as evil and not capable of change in the Superman Special seems very un Superman of him.
THIS!

Bendis hasn't turned Lex evil. It's Scott Snyder for his Legion of Doom story.

Yeah, I knew it wasn't in a Bendis comic that it started happening. I brought it up here because I thought of it as a general Superman topic. It was in the Action Comics 1000 issue that introduced Bendis' Man of Steel series. And since that issue was kind of a mark for a jumping on point for a new direction, and Man of Steel is supposed to be kind of setting the new focus, I kind of associated Bendis with the cause of it.
