I mean, he's AI. He doesn't have a 'personality', or any quality I've ever particularly found enjoyable in stories.
Yes, he's a formidable opponent and could have an 'army'. But personally I just find him kind of boring
Maybe I just haven't read/seen the best stories. I dunno.
Because Brainiac poses a a different type of threat to Superman. He's not Zod, he's not Metallo. Superman's powers won't do him any good against a foe like that. I'm curious to see where they could take it.
I say the second film should feature Lex and Brainiac.
