Take a look at the newest version of the 1950's DC Comics' supervillain 'Brainiac' (Blake Ritson) from the upcoming live-action superhero TV series "Krypton", debuting March 21, 2018 on Syfy:

"He traverses the universe in a gigantic 'skull ship'", said Ritson about 'Brainiac', "ripping cities out of planets, miniaturizing them and placing them on board. 

"But he does so in the spirit of 'Noah' plucking out two of every animal to ensure their survival, even while knowing that others must perish."

Created by writer Otto Binder (of "Adam Link" fame), 'Brainiac' debuted in "Action Comics" #242, July 1958.

In storylines involving time travel and cloning, variations of Brainiac depict him as a green-skinned alien android from the planet 'Colu'...

...capable of manipulating computer systems, exerting control over time and responsible for shrinking 'Kandor'...

..the bottled, surviving capital city of Superman's destroyed home planet 'Krypton'.
