>WHY DID LEX CREATE DOOMSDAY IF HE WAS GOING TO KILL EVERYONE?!!!111!!1
If you see "The Empire of Luthor" which is in the Special Features section of the DVD, you will see a version of Luthor's speech about Dooms which plays as such: "Ancient Kyrptonian deformity... Obeys ONLY ME... Born to destroy you........ Your Doomsday."
As you see, "Obeys only me" is replacing the "blood of my blood" line here, but also, it implies that Lex thought he was controlling Doomsday.
If we dig further into it, his thinking comes from him being submissive to his father during childhood, so it makes sense for him that "his offspring" (Doomsday; Blood of his blood) would be submissive to him, however, this backfires because the first thing Doomsday does was landing a punch on him.
Lex thought he was in charge of the situation and that because Doomsday was "blood of his blood" he would never harm anyone other than Sups; He didn't know he would go on a bloody rampage.
