The adage tells us that knowledge is power. If that truly is the case, then the entity known as Brainiac is on his way to becoming the most powerful being in the universe.
Cold, calculating, unfeeling and absolutely single-minded in his goals, the aptly nicknamed Collector of Worlds journeys across the universe gathering information and knowledge from every civilization he encounters. But enlightenment isn’t Brainiac’s goal. Instead, he seeks the superiority that comes with knowledge. But what power does knowledge truly hold if everyone can obtain it? While more benevolent minds might be content to learn and share new knowledge, when Brainiac encounters a new civilization, he captures and bottles entire cities full of people and technology as samples—before destroying the planet and moving on, leaving little more than rubble in his wake.
Brainiac is vastly intelligent and driven by pure, unwavering logic. Superman must utilize all of his powers when battling against the villain and his army of robot drones, but any chance at defeating Brainiac requires brains as well as brawn…and outthinking, out-planning and outwitting one of the smartest beings in the universe is a task few heroes are up to.
Brainiac's power and intelligence make him one of Superman’s most dangerous foes—both as a direct threat and as a constant reminder to the entire world of just how big a danger an alien presence can truly be.
