Graphic artist Boss Logic decided to have a little fun with national headlines this week when he mocked up a piece featuring Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as Lex Luthor.
Zuckerberg really does have a Lex Luthor look with his head shaved. I really like what Boss Logic does to his eyes, giving them a green flare, Luthor’s iconic color. I like the choice of the blue suit jacket with the purple tie even though it is what Zuckerberg was wearing at his Senate hearing on Tuesday. The color scheme somehow makes his eyes and facial expression look even more menacing.
I also like how Boss Logic did some work on the people sitting behind Zuckerberg. The man particularly looks evil with those red emblazoned eyes. He almost appears to have Venom-like veins taking over his face as well. It looks truly sinister.
The decision to turn Mark Zuckerberg into Lex Luthor makes a whole lot of sense given that DC Comics, DC Films, and Zack Snyder casted Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the DC Films Universe for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Eisenberg would reprise his role in the end credits scene of Justice League.
Eisenberg previously portrayed Mark Zuckerberg in 2010’s The Social Network. The film followed Mark Zuckerberg from his time at Harvard and through a number of controversies as he turned Facebook into the technology giant that it is today.
What do you think of Boss Logic’s Mark Zuckerberg inspired Lex Luthor? I know I’m a fan.
