Pretty much, but specifically "Did they think I was important enough to mention?".

Hi Madhulk,

"Lex: Did I merit a mention? Does it say anything about me?"

Both of Lex's comments here refer to the article that Lionel is reading in the newspaper or magazine "Tomorrow's Planet".

"Did I merit a mention" is just a different way of saying "Was I mentioned [in the article]?". That is, "Did the journalist consider that I was worth mentioning?".

Likewise, "Does it [i.e. the article] say anything about me?" is just an expansion of the first part of his comment.

As you see from Lionel's reply, he was mentioned, in the third paragraph of the article.

Edit: Okay, I see now! The text in blue is your own interpretation of Lex's comment....;-)
OK, so I was in the right track. Thanks, guys!
