Brainiac is the knowledge-obsessed alien conqueror from Colu.
Having bonded with his highly advanced ship, Brainiac roams the cosmos, hoping to study and exterminate everything in the galaxy.
Many years ago, Brainiac caused the destruction of the planet Krypton. Kara Zor-El, who was a teenager during the attack, was able to remember the invasion that only she and her baby cousin Kal were able to escape from.
Years later, after Kal had landed on Earth, grown up, became the hero Superman, lost his wife Lois to the Joker, and attempted to set up a new regime before being overthrown, Brainiac arrived at Earth and had analyzed that Superman's rise and fall had irreversibly compromised Earth's defenses, making it a prime target for invasion.
Brainiac contacted the super-intelligent gorilla leader named Gorilla Grodd, and the two formed a partnership. Grodd's task was to organize Earth's villains against any heroes that would challenge Brainiac in the form of what Grodd would call "the Society".
Hacking into Batman's security program known as Brother Eye, Brainiac was granted complete control of all of Earth's electronics, thus initiating his invasion. Earth's heroes, with Superman's help, managed to successfully defeat Brainiac but, since the alien had abducted major cities and kept them trapped on his ship, his fate - whether he was to live or die - lead to another conflict between former super-friends Superman and Batman.
Possible Post-Braniac Epilogues
This section of history takes place in a timeline outside that of normal Injustice canon.
Upon beating "Classic" mode in Injustice: Gods Among Us or "Multiverse" mode in Injustice 2 with any playable fighter, the player would receive a possible alternate ending to the game's story featuring their fighter. These alternate histories should not be seen as relevant to future sequels or comic adaptations.
In one scenario, if Batman were to beat Superman, Brainiac would be apprehended and kept alive. Superman would be sent into the Phantom Zone, and Batman and Earth's other heroes would attempt to continue to fix the world, one of those tasks being freeing Brainiac's trapped cities.
In another scenario, if Superman were to defeat Batman, the Kryptonian would execute Brainiac and bond with his ship, therefore becoming the new Brainiac. With Brainiac's intelligence and powers, Brainiac-Superman would mind-control Batman to be his mindless servant as he set out to fix his former regime.
