As Lex Luthor recruiting drive for Year of the Villain takes center stage in more DC Comics, the resurrected supervillain may have found someone he can't convince in an exclusive preview for Action Comics #1013, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Szymon Kudranski and Brad Anderson.

Crimelord Leone, a relatively new character, previously purchased the Daily Planet. Luthor attempts to give her an undisclosed gift when she calls her security to assist her.
