Such folly and futility in the grand design.

Biography

Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the “Last Son of Krypton” have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton -- and discovers a new world worthy of his collection.

Ending

Brainiac: Obviously Batman and Superman have many questions. Where did I come from? Why am I here? Am I friend or foe? It is time to reveal the truth.

Brainiac 5: I'm Brainiac 5. A descendant of the original Brainiac, but without his homicidal tendencies. In the future, people fear Coluans because of my ancestor. So I elected to come back in time and fix that. Now that I'm done, I'm going back where I belong--the 31st century. The Legion of Super-Heroes will grill me for "borrowing" a time bubble. But all they really need to know is that I'm on their side, and always will be. Long live the Legion!

Trivia

  • Brainiac's descendant, Brainiac 5, is mentioned in Ares arcade ladder ending.
  • Brainiac's voice actor Jeffrey Combs, best known for playing the lead character Dr. Herbert West in the Re-Animator horror films, previously voiced Scarecrow in one episode of Batman The Animated Series, but was replaced by veteran voice actor Jeff Bennett for the character's following appearance.
