Four pages from ACTION COMICS 900's main story, the conclusion to Lex Luthor's "Black Ring" storyline...

Using his new godly powers, Lex turns the universe into a paradise.



However, the power comes with a catch.





Yeah, doesn't take a criminal genius to guess what he picks.

This is, let's not forget, the same Luthor who moments later gives up the chance to make the entire universe blissful and content forever and ever and ever because he can't stand the fact that his mortal enemy will ALSO be happy and contented.

He's a bit of a cock, is what I'm saying.

(Also, he's only had that power for a few moments at this point -- he might not have figured out how or gotten around to it yet.)

Now there's an interesting metaphysical conundrum; Can omnipotence have a learning curve? :)

If the original Infinity Gauntlet is anything to go by, yes.

Yes. Omnipotence does not equal omniscience.

Sorry, I meant to type "Omniscience" :)

It's the old conundrum about infinities. Are there things bigger than infinite? I mean, numbers divisible by two are infinite, they just go on and on. But all the numbers are also infinite and encompass the aforementioned.

So it depends on how the universe in question sees this. In Marvel cosmicdom they have degrees of omniscience/-potense, and the example above has been used to describe it. It hasn't really been established how it works in DCU proper, I think.
