Behind the Scenes
|First Appearance||Dredd (2012 film)|
|Portrayed by||Langley Kirkwood|
Judge Lex has worked as a street judge for the Mega-City One Justice Department for over twenty years. Over this time he became dissilusioned with the city and justice system leading him to become a corrupt judge who works as a mercenary for hire for crime lords with the funds to purchase his services.
One day Ma-Ma bribes Lex and other corrupt judges Alvarez, Chan and Kaplan to kill the renown Judge Dredd. Their cover was blown when Chan attacks, and is killed by, Dredd. Dredd then kills Alvarez but runs out of ammunition, and Lex shoots him in the torso. Lex moves in to execute Dredd, but Dredd stalls him long enough for Judge Anderson to arrive and kill Lex first.
- "Lex" is the Latin word for "law."
- He states to Dredd that he's worked as a Judge for 20 years, implying that he used to be an honest Lawman before the crime rate disillusioned him.
