There's this thing over in TV Tropes called "Reed Richards is useless", the idea being that despite all the overblown superscience avaliable in superhero comics, none of the spectacular advances made will ever impact regular folk due to the restraints of keeping the setting as close to reality as possible.

Thing is, there are numerous actual cures for the condition knocking about in the Marvel Universe, but unlike the Reed Richards is Useless trope, the reason why they're not available isn't because they're too impractical or expensive for the public market, it's... well, the people who discovered it are kind of tools.

but trust Lex Luthor to take it a little more literally than most

Back in 1972, Lex is in the middle of one of his daily rants about how much he hates Superman, when he's excited to hear a knock at the door.

Candygram for Mr Luthor! )
