Brainiac is one of the deadliest villains of the DC universe. Depending on what version of the DC-verse you are following, he was single handedly responsible for the destruction of Krypton, Superman’s home planet, and then for making his life hell for several years after that. Superman, I must remind you, is pretty much invincible, so that takes some serious skill.
Brainiac will also be in the upcoming Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. In what must be one of the most nerdgasmic plots for a video game about assembling tiny plastic bricks into the likenesses of popular comic book characters, the new trailer reveals Brainiac’s diabolical plan to shrink the Earth and take control of his enemies using the power of the Lantern Rings. Now, the super heroes of the DC Comics universe must join forces with the Legion of Doom on a journey across the Lantern Worlds to stop the nefarious evildoer from adding Earth to his twisted collection.
Yes, they are basically crossing over and going all out with the DC-verse stuff.
Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham launches on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and PC this fall.
