Gene Hackman is a former American actor. Among other roles, he played Lex Luthor opposite Christopher Reeve as Superman in the Superman film series.


Gene AKA "Hack Man" attempts to persuade Christopher Reeve to stop sucking baby fetus stem-cells, which he uses to cure his paralysis. Christopher becomes a super villain and forms a Legion of Doom, out of his resentment towards Hackman's protesting of stem-cells research. Hackman uses the public's support to get a law passed through the US Government to ban stem-cells so Christopher cannot get them anymore. Somehow, Christopher gets imprisoned in the "Phantom Zone" glass pane and sent into outer space like the super villains from Superman II.
