While it was nice to have Luthor back, it was a shame that he was Legionless. Instead, the cue-ball teamed with "sun creatures" to turn the sun red in order to weaken Superman. But when the conquers decided to go for broke and burn down the planet, Luthor had to free the rest of the defeated Friends to save the day. I would be harder on the plot, but All Star Superman pretty much did the same thing, but brilliantly.
The episode also introduced a sidekick for Lex. His name was not Otis, but it might as well have been. The stooge even used a holographic projector to spring Luthor from jail and to capture the Super Friends. In all, not a bad episode and even the Twins were kept to a minimum.
