Brainiac Origins

#1 Posted by Bad_People (163 posts) - - Show Bio

Brainiac is probably my favorite Superman villain and he’s one of the characters who’s had a great number of origins over the years. So my question is, which do you think is the best?

I personally kind of favor the “Superman: The Animated Series” origin in which he started out as a Kryptonian supercomputer who lied about the possibility of Kryptons destruction(and may have had a hand in it).

I enjoyed the Superman Animated Series origin as well. I think that Grant Morrison tried to channel that with his Brainiac origin. The entity was Brainiac on Krypton, Computo on Colu, and Internet on Earth. I really got a kick out of that.
