Brainiac was the Kryptonian artificial intelligence created by Jor-El to help Krypton, and was corrupted by General Zod to help destroy it. Brainiac now serves Zod and works to bring him back from the phantom zone he was banished to. Eventually, he was defeated and rebooted into Brainiac 5, his heroic counterpart, who works for the Legion of Superheroes.
