Bios - Brainiac

Voiced By: Corey Burton
First Appearance: "Panic in the Sky"
Position: Dead (This Copy, anyway)
Bio: After Amanda Wahler destroyed the android shell in which Lex planned to live in for all eternity, Brainiac finally revealed that he had been operating within Luthor for years, having placed nano bytes in his body years earlier, subtlety influencing his decisions since he took over.

Healing Luthor of his Kryptonite induced cancer and given him the super strength needed to defeat The Question, Brainiac accepted Luthor's offer to live beyond his programming, and merge into one being that would not only collect the information it gathered, but rule it.

Having absorbed all the information from the Dark Heart, Brainiac and Luthor created a device that they hoped would absorb all of the information they required before the Justice League stopped them. Having destroyed the machine, The Flash then completely separated Luthor from Brainiac, killing him. Given the nature of Brainiac's programming, there's no telling whether or not he is still alive, somewhere.

Brainiac has been a mental blip in Luthor's mind ever since the two separated. Egging Luthor on to find pieces of Brainiac so he could be re-activated, Luthor was never successful until Tala found a vision inside a piece of leftover Brainiac. Projecting this vision to Lex, Tala was able to recreate Brainiac's last minutes and by this vision Luthor was able to plot a course to it. Traveling through space, Luthor found Brainiac's resting place, but instead of resurrecting Brainiac like he intended, Luthor brought back a pissed off Darkseid, bonded with small remnants of Brainiac.
