Earlier this week, you found out that Brainiac would be starring in his own one-shot during Villains Month this September.

We already know that Brainiac has been collecting worlds. But why does he do what he does? Surely this psychopath must have motives beyond just trying to save the civilizations being threatened by the 5th dimension – but what are they? What will happen when a new superhero discovers the truth? And how will her startling revelation impact the rest of the DC Universe?

Kick off your weekend by checking out this all-new character design for Brainiac, which shows him both as a doctor experimenting on his son, and as the maniacal villain we all know after he’s mutilated himself into his present look.

See you next week,
