Default Re: Who should be the villain in the sequel for Man of Steel?

For me, the appeal of Brainiac is partly visual. I like the concept of him being symbiotic with his ship. You have the sense of him being an infinite intelligence residing in both an alien mechanical body and in an infinite robotic mass. I think you should get a sense of wonder and terror from Brainiac's ship, in the sense that your surroundings are in themselves an intelligent, sentient being. Everything is unknown, and watchful, like the derelict spacecraft in Alien.
