Following Cosmic Book News breaking the story that Doomsday will not be featured in Batman Vs. Superman, a fan theory has surfaced online suggesting OMAC will be a villain.
The gang over at the Super Hero Hype Message boards have put forth a rather convincing argument that Zack Snyder will be tying OMAC into LexCorp and Lex Luthor.
Perhaps one of the most visually compelling arguments comes in the form of the LexCorp logo from the trailer and the art of OMAC from the comics which share the same color scheme:
The recent Batman Vs. Superman LexCorp viral video also seemingly teases the involvement of OMAC :
At LexCorp Industries, we believe in technology that unites us, where inspiration, innovation and imagination all come together to create a greater tomorrow, today. Now, LexCorp is proud to announce Lex/OS the world’s most private and secure operating system. Engineered with the protection you need, and the freedom you want. To celebrate, please enjoy our free Lex Wi-Fi throughout this venue and visit our LexCorp booth for your free charging device. LexCorp and the New Lex/OS, providing the safety and confidence we need in an ever changing world. Let’s build a better tomorrow.
With Luthor stating:
We are on the cusp of unveiling a technology that will change the world forever. It’s about safety. This is a product that will protect you, and everyone, from threats you don’t even know about yet. I don’t want to scare anybody… much. But there are a lot of threats out there, and they’re here today.
In the comics, the OMACs are humans transformed by a Brainiac virus into living machines/cyborgs that are used to assassinate any and all beings with superpowers created by the Defense Department and LexCorp. In Batman Vs. Superman, it’s possible Lex may create OMAC with the use of Zod’s corpse.
