Not trying to be irrational but he does need work. For example I could hit deathstroke with an CC or standing 3 and try to throw an orb. I'll get it out but I'll take damage from gun shots easily. That just doesn't seem right. I can't knock my opponent down throw out an orb and block from across the screen. Even if it was a force block I could live with it.Again, I can not disagree with this more. I think the start-up on all of his gadgets is just fine. If you try to just throw them out without any thought, then you get interrupted and punished, which you should. He's a set-up character that requires thought and strategy. You gotta pick your spots. I'd go through through 3 or 4 matches in a row without getting anything interrupted.
People don't realize how much of a beast Lex is when he gets his trait up and his toys out. If he could just get that going at will without working for it, he'd be dumb and boring.
