My DC: Brainiac September 18, 2011

My conception for Brainiac is a compilation of several of the different incarnations we have seen throughout the years.

In appearance he would be like the Bronze Age version, metal body with the honeycomb brain case.  His signature three diodes would be a symbol embossed onto the metal forehead.  He would command a fleet of skull ships.

My idea, rather than being a scientist who opposed the computer tyrants of Kolu . . . he would have been one of the computer tyrants.  Kolu would have been ruled by a council of AI’s that reached logical consensus.  Brainiac wound up seeking more, seized control of the council, and had his rivals destroyed.  His obsession is perfection, and perfection in a machine mind is to know all.  He sends his fleets out from Kolu on missions of learning (which take the form of conquest).
