Twitter is officially convinced that Jeff Bezos is Lex Luthor living in the 21st Century.

The 57-year-old tech mogul recently addressed his employees in an official note. Jeff Bezos revealed that while he would still stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives, he will be stepping down as he transitions to the role of executive chair in the third quarter.

Taking over the mantle from him will be the head of Amazon Web Services, Andy Jassy, Bezos' colleague for the past 24 years.

As the industrial world grappled with coming to terms with this announcement, Twitter decided to add a whole new spin to the narrative.

Elucidating upon Jeff Bezos' uncanny resemblance to DC supervillain and arch-enemy of the Justice League, Lex Luthor, several Twitter users hilariously claimed that he can now finally fulfill his lifelong goal of becoming Luthor. However, there is one possible obstacle in the way: Elon Musk as Batman!
