Alexander Luthor, Sr. or also called Luthor for Earth-Three is character and a Prominent Protagonist from the DC Comic Book's Crisis on Infinite Earth, He is the Father for then hero Alexander Luthor, Jr. and sole hero form Earth-Three before his Destruction.
Alexander Luthor, Sr. was born on Earth-Three. Finding solace in deep scientific research and invention, Alexander created many notable and advanced devices which brought him public notice. But it was not until his native world became the target of his extra-dimensional counterparts, the Luthors of Earth-One and Earth-Two that he decided to openly fight as a champion for his world. Realizing that he could not win the day alone against such odds, He recruited the help of his counterparts' greatest enemies, the Supermen of Earth-One and Earth-Two.
After bringing the Supermen to Earth-Three, Alexander enlisted their aid to directly confront his villainous counterparts, who planed to use his world as a base from which to destroy their own home worlds. They had recruited Ultraman to act as the muscle in their scheme. Since he was powered by kryptonite, he was easily able to overpower his extra-dimensional counterparts. This spurred Alexander to don a suit of powered armor and confronted Ultraman. Using his advanced weaponry, he was able to defeat Ultraman by temporarily "de-phasing" him. This allowed the two Supermen to recover and defeat the already squabbling Alexei and Lex Luthor.
With Alexei and Lex defeated, Alexander returned the two Supermen to their native dimensions and Ultraman to his prison. Inspired by the encounter, he decided on to remain an active and open heroic presence to his world. He later married Lois Lane and fathered a son with her.
Over the intervening years Alexander would face and defeat Ultraman and the Crime Syndicate many times. This continued up until the Anti-Monitor's energy wave appeared and started to sweep through the Earth-Three universe. To halt the wave, he was forced to join forces with his enemies. Despite their combined power, they were unable to stop the advancing wall of anti-matter. Alexander and his wife were only able to save their son from the complete destruction of their reality by placing him in a capsule which would take him to Earth-One.

- A similar version of this Character appear in the 2010 DC animated movie Crisis on Two Earths, This verison of Alex Luthor was the leader of the Justice League on the Earth universe inhabited by the Crime Syndicate. However, the decimation of his team by the Crime Syndicate left him and the last known surviving member of the Justice League, the Jester, to break into a Crime Syndicate stronghold to steal the quantum trigger, a device that the Crime Syndicate intended to use with their quantum-powered nuclear missile to destroy all known life on Earth. Lex Luthor used a transdimensional device to transport himself to the universe inhabited by Superman's Justice League to get his team's attention and help in defeating the Crime Syndicate. Luthor hid the quantum trigger on board the Justice League Watchtower satellite in the hopes that the Crime Syndicate would never find it. However, Superwoman used a copy of Luthor's transdimensional device created by Owlman to transport over to that dimension and retrieved it. Luthor later explained to the Justice League that without the quantum trigger, they would have had the upper hand against the Crime Syndicate. When Owlman transported the quantum nuclear missile to Earth-Prime in the hopes of destroying all realities, Luthor and Johnny Quick helped Batman cross through dimensions to stop Owlman, having him and the missile be transported to a cold desolate Earth universe where it would destroy that Earth without harming anyone.
