Justice League: A Better World
The following are projects developed by Lex Luthor using Lexcorp resources to gain the ability to bestow metahuman powers to ordinary people. The information in this project was partially destroyed by Brainiac when he took control of the computers during the events of Brainac Year 2000 Virus. The Justice Lords seized the research and gave it to Cadmus Project to work on the Power Token Project.
The Everyman Project was a project initiated by Lex Luthor. Its goal was to grant super-powers to non-metahumans. This project requires an implant and a series of injections. Almost all powers granted were Physical Powers, like Flight, Invulnerability, Skin Armor, Super Strength and Growth. Using the implant, Luthor had the ability to send a signal that will strip the powers away from those he had granted them to. The total amount of AP’s of powers or attribute increases that the compound can bestow was 10 to 20 Aps (depending on the individual) that have to be divided between the different powers.

A parallel project of the “Everyman Project” was a pill called “5-U-93-R Pill” that was designed by Lex Luthor in order to gift ordinary people with extraordinary powers, specifically the physiology of Kryptonians. Anyone who ingested the pill was granted with strength and durability on the same level as Superman (under a yellow sun). This project wasn’t finished.

As part of these experiments Lex Luthor ordered the extraction of DNA from all his employees to study the probability of discovering a metahuman before they develop their powers. Employees and family members for a total of 1,373,462 subjects were screened and their DNA stored in one of Lexcorp facilities.
