According to reports, an iconic DC Comics' super-villain will be the main evil character in director Zack Snyder's "Justice League" feature, that will follow "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
The super-villain 'Brainiac' first appeared in DC's "Action Comics" #242 (July 1958), created by writer Otto Binder and illustrator Al Plastino, as an extraterrestrial android, responsible for shrinking and stealing 'Kandor', capital city of Superman's beloved home planet 'Krypton'.
Due to complex storylines involving time travel, cloning and revisions of DC's continuity, several variations of Brainiac have appeared, with most incarnations depicting him as a green-skinned being in humanoid form, with a set of diodes protruding from his skull.
His name itself is a combination of the words 'brain' and 'maniac', which squares him nicely into the super-villain category.
