Brainiack should slowly evolve into something terrifying to look at.

Gieger helped create one of the most Iconic Alien designs ever. Biomech is the way to go.

Maybe he rebuilds himself throughout the film and by the end he shows up looking terrifying.

Pre-Crisis? He shrunk cities to populate a planet that he would rule. Why steal cities instead of just conquering a planet? So he could steal cities and have them in bottles, I guess. After his defeat by Superman his motivation was to defeat Supes obviously.

Its cool but not very Brainiac looking. I'd like a combination STAS and General Grievous for Brainiac

The one that's used in the comics now, a modern spin on pre-crisis Brainiac, none of that animated series kryptonian A.I. stuff, no thanks.

So Brainiac is confirmed for the first movie? I haven't paid much attention to Superman news for awhile.

That's good news. I'm actually more excited for this than the Spider-Man reboot. Has there been a release date annouced?

This is the version I have liked best so far personally.

This version reminds me of this guy:

So they never gave a new reason for his city-collecting once they retconned him? Oh well. I guess then what I'd like to see is a STAS style Brainiac, absorbing all the information from a world and then destroying it, except have him be from Colu. I just think that the character should retain atleast some of his comic background. And even then, he could still be responsible for Krypton's destruction, possibly tampering with Jor-El's findings so that they wouldn't try to evacuate.

well that is why i would go with a mixture of colu and kryptonian/STAS take.

Definately think they should use this version instead of the robot because it makes him a lot creepier. The way they did silver surfer in fantastic four reminds me of brainiac. Especially when it was just the make up and not CG, you colour that green and put those plugs on his head, it would look great. Someone should do a manip if they could.

yea i would perfer to go with a real actor in makeup/costume-posthestic suit. Over it being a full on cgi character.

I like the design of the Johns/Frank Brainiac too. I like the scenes of Kandor being bottled by Brainiac's robots in those comics. Those robot probes would look cool in a movie.

Maybe all the current comic stuff, with Brainiac, Kandor, Zod, New Krypton etc. is the "huge Kryptonian mythology" the rumors are referring to. If there really is no origin then they still have reason to show Krypton- the Brainiac flashbacks- and can still explore the mythology if Kandor is restored.

Still, I wouldn't mind exploration of Krypton life before it exploded, like in Byrne's version.

Agreed.

I can't name a single comic, other than this one, in which I have a solid memory of Brainiac.

I'd go with a combination of the Animated Series (in terms of what he does and how he does it), the '90s Brainiac (his normal appearance) and the '83-'86 Brainiac (as a battle body or something cuz it looked awesome).

It should be established early on that in that body at-least, that should he and Superman come to blows, he could really hurt our hero just like Darkseid or Doomsday.

I would rather Krypton's destruction be of natural causes and their races demise to be due to their unwillingness to listen to Jor-El. The most I would want to see Brainiac worked into the Death of Krypton would be if his shrinking of Kandor (which was the capitol) took away people who would have heeded Jor-El's warning.

As for which version/visual, Robotic Coluan all the way. You want the creepy green skin and the electrodes. Alien looking version could be incorporated in some way too.
I know a lot of people would disagree with me on this, but I actually kind-of like when they do that. I mean, in Batman, when they made the Joker the guy who killed the Waynes, I wasn't bothered so much by that, but by how they did so little with it. "You made me/ I made you." Woo.
