The Brainiac-last survivor of his alien race Colu-is one of the main villain appearing in DC comics aside from the Lex Luthor. His real name is Vril Dox having extraordinary intelligence. He is a robotic computerised supervillain. We are all aware of that the Krypton destruction happened because of Brainiac’s invasion on the krypton planet.
So in this article, there are top 5 things about him which you didn’t know about
1. HIS BRAIN HAVING 12TH LEVEL INTELLIGENCE
As the name having brain words itself suggest he possess extraordinary knowledge about everything. The normal human being has 6th level effector minds, but Brainiac possesses 12th level of effector mind. Despite of having 6th level intelligence, Luthor seems to be smarter than the Brainiac who can do anything possible using scientifically.
2. ONCE HE WAS AN ALIEN KIDNAPPER
This sound weird but yes, it’s true. When Brainiac first debuted in the action DC comics of issue #242, he was also the last survivor his alien race. That’s why he shrinks the other cities and imprison them into the bottle to repopulate his planet. That what we have seen in the Injustice 2 video game.
Once he made Earth his next stop but unfortunately stopped by man of steel. Superman couldn’t break his indestructible force shield. So he gets injured and finally shrunken himself along with his city Metropolis. Later he found out that there are other cities also. One of them was Kandor city who was taken from Krypton planet before invasion of Krypton. After that, it was stalemate for Brainiac who put himself into the suspended animation for about 100 years home trip. That’s gives Superman chance to free his city along with Kandor-his home.
In the DC’s Action Comics #276, Supergirl joined the Legion of Super-heroes in the 30th century. In this team, there was a boy who looks exactly like Brainiac who is a supervillain in the silver age comics. That boy is none other than the Brainiac 5 who was a descendant of Brainiac 2. His real name is Querl Dox. Actually, he hates for the crimes and finally falls in loves with Supergirl.
Using his intellectual brain, the Legion has created a force field belt from his ancestor’s force field.
How is there descendant possible if Brainiac was computerised humanoid robot??? Yes, this is possible in Superman issue #167. This all started from when the Coluan computerocracy send original Brainiac out for the spying of others universes. But they think it would be less suspicious if he will be a family man, hence they send additional Coluan boy with him as Brainiac 2. This kid privately used Brainiac’s technology to give himself a 12th level effector mind and return to Colu. By doing so, he made up into the Tyrants who’s having the 10th level effector minds. So the Brainiac 5 was his descendant, not the original villain Brainiac.
5. JUSTICE LEAGUE CINEMATIC UNIVERSE MOVIE MAY BRING BRAINIAC INTO LIFE
The Brainiac first appearance in the movie Superman 3 in 1983. The initial script had been that Brainiac would split Superman’s mind into good and evil. But Warner Bros thinks this script too much sci-fi and stop the project.
Next came Superman Reborn film in 1990 which included the LUTHOR, DOOMSDAY and BRAINIAC. Recently there was a rumour around that Brainiac would play a role in the Batman vs Superman movie. Now the same happens with the Justice League movie. The one possible theory is that Brainiac would come from the Lexcorp neural network computer system. But likewise, this would also be the rumours.
So what do you think? Do you know Superman’s other Foe??? Who would fit in the movie Justice League 2017 movie as a villain?
Will Bizarro the good one as a villain???
