"wouldn't it be far more fitting and interesting, having Lex as evil, manipulative businessman?"

He kind-of is--remember, he's with the military because they hired him as an outside consultant to take down Superman. Plus, later on in Justice League we do see Lex Corp buildings being built.

By evil bussnessman, I mean his behavior and personality. I enjoy this version, but the whole "Greatest criminal mind of all time!" shouldn't be something, to which thousands of people are introduced as arch-nemesis for character, whos rogue gallery has already pretty weak reputation.

He's never introduced himself like that, though--he's called himself the "greatest scientific mind of all time," and I think whether he's the Byrne Kingpin-lite or the silver age mad scientist, he should consider himself the greatest something or other of all time.

I was referencing the movie. This Luthor is clearly inspired by that version.

I don't think he is--I mean, he contacted an alien force, but that's about the only big similarity, and he hasn't even asked for Australia. This take does strike me as a sort of entrepreneur scientist, a mix of the mad scientist in the Silver Age and has the potential to become the rich industrialist of the Byrne era.

The way you say (well, write) "he hasn't even asked for Australia" sounds (reads) almost like if he would ask for it, you would be just a little bit suspicous :-)
