chorale just spoke with a customer service rep named "Alex." I referred to the rep as "he," and she corrected me: Alex was a woman. This led to a brief discussion of gendering of names, in which she remarked that comics fans would naturally think of "Lex" as a man's name. Now I want to see the Lex Luthor of an alternate timeline, the brilliant woman who's Superman's archfoe.

Or maybe archfoe/love interest? perhaps in the style of Batman/Catwoman, or perhaps in that of Dagny Taggart/John Galt? Superman has never had that sort of dynamic with anyone that I know of. . . .
