Vril Dox was once a scientist on the planet Colu. Because of his genius, Dox was allowed to serve the planet's computerized tyrants. Attempting to overthrow the tyrants and rule Colu himself, Dox had invented a teleporter. Discovering his plan, the tyrants used the teleporter on Dox, apparently killing him. Dox's mind survived and travelled thousands of light years to earth. Using his vast telepathic and psychokinetic powers, Dox possessed the body of a sideshow mentalist called the Amazing Brainiac (Milton Fine) to become the power hungry villain known as Brainiac. Only Superman has stood in the way of Brainiacís many ingenious schemes.
