Who's to say Luthor WASN'T in orange, purple, and black or something like that? Earth-3's blue might be our RED, their yellow might be our GREEN, and so on.

Think about THAT for a minute. ;\)


What is interesting to me about Earth 3 Luthor's original red blue and gold costume is what those colors traditionally mean. The color code would seem to indicate that Red and Blue, the colors of courage, sacrifice and nobility, mean heroism, while Green, the color of money and of jealousy, means villainy:

Heroes, whose colors are predominately red, blue, or gold:
Spiderman
Superman family
Mon-El
Atom
Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl
Flash
Robin
Aqualad
Speedy
Captain America
Fantastic 4
Earth 3 Luthor
Captain Marvel family
Thor
Iron Man
Ant/Giant Man
Doc Strange
Wonder Man
Cyclops
Angel
Scarlet Witch
Daredevil
Guardian

Villains whose colors are predominately green, or green and purple:
Luthor
Joker
Doom
Mandarin
Green Goblin
Sandman
Doc Ock
Jack'O'Lantern
Loki
Brainiac
Metallo
Parasite
Hulk, a villain quite often in the beginning
Abomination
Magneto, has red but also has purple, AND he flips back and forth...hmmmmm...
Red Skull, Predominately green but has red, NEVER flips
Diablo
Baron Mordo
Dormammu
Desaad
Deep Six
Cobra
Wrecker
Titania
