The Wikipedia article on Black Lightning (Jefferson Pierce) mentions that he was appointed to Lex Luthor's cabinet as the Secretary of Education. However, I wasn't able to find out who else held similar positions.

Did Lex Luthor appoint any other notable DC characters to cabinet positions during his presidency? If so, who?

  • I wanted to ask the very same question a few weeks ago. Thanks! I think one of Clark Kent's friend (Pete or Jimmy Olsen) was Secretary, or maybe Vice-President

There were a few others that we know of.

President Lex Luthor 2001–2003
Vice President Pete Ross 2001–2003
Secretary of Defense Sam Lane 2001–2001
Secretary of Education Jefferson Pierce 2001–2003
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Frank Rock 2001–2003

Lex Luthor - Wikipedia

If this is hard to read the list went as follows: Pete Ross, Sam Lane, Jefferson Pierce, and Frank Rock. These are all the appointments that he made that we know of.



Amanda Waller: Secretary of Metahuman Affairs Samuel Lane (Lois Lane's father): Secretary of Defense

He also appointed the former Sgt. Rock as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Cat Grant as his Press Secretary. (And as mentioned Pete Ross was his VP).
