** 1. Being in the systems doesn't mean that he looked at everything, and it's possible -- even probable -- that Bruce had ''extremely'' heavy encryption to keep people out of his Batman stuff. 2. Mind controlling =/= mind ''reading''. 3. He knew to have him call ''Bruce Wayne's family''. The message he sends is addressed to Tim, not to Robin.

** On a related note: how the hell did Brainiac not know Bruce Wayne was Batman? He was in the Waynetech systems where he could see all the equipment Batman uses, he had mind-controlling nanites inside Bruce Wayne, and he even knew to have him call Batman's allies to explain his absence!

* Why exactly would Bizarro's cells breaking down also cause his costume to change to a darker shade and his "S"-shield to distort?

** The impression I got was that Desaad was just lying about building a better machine to cover up his failure and Darkseid saw right through it.

** Villains only get an explanation for their return if it's important to the plot or if they'd been left in a state that was completely unfixable without significant help. Metallo needs his kryptonite piece to stay alive so even if they cut him off from it during the fight someone has to give him at least limited access to it so he doesn't die. He either bribed whomever was in charge of feeding him or they just made a mistake and gave him too much power.



*** You just said it yourself, most other aliens speak English. Someone seems to have spread it around the galaxy so that the various species could communicate. It was probably the Lantern Corps.



* How can Brainiac be fooled by Clark Kent's disguise? He is a super computer. In "Ghost in the machine" he actually believes Clark and Superman are 2 different people. If he is as smart as he says he is, then shouldn't he had deduced Superman's human identity long ago.

to:

** Because they're villains. Having the only other kryptonians around being people he has to keep imprisoned forever just isolates him more.

** Depends on what he bothers to scan for. The Brainiacs that show up on Earth are simply drones sent to collect Earth's data. Earth is a fairly primitive planet, no point expending extra resources on the really in-depth all purpose scanners.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0QVvbhMm24 this video]] from "The Main Man" Clark confesses his secret identity using a shield of sarcasm to troll Lois. Fair enough, but he uses the phrase "pretend to be a journalist." Huh? Clark ''is'' a journalist. He went to school and earned his credentials. Bending the rules with Superman powers once in awhile doesn't mean he's a complete fake, does it?

** That was part of the trolling and sarcasm.

** Why does it work against Electro? DCAU Livewire probably isn't an electric "elemental" like most versions; rather she likely still has to conduct the electricity through her own body. Water probably interferes with her ability to do so. In essence her entire body is an electrical appliance.

* Why is High Wire vulnerable to water? Water is one of the best conductors of electricity, like metal is, she can use water to transport herself as she use metal. I know that electricity cause short circuits to electrical appliances, but she is not one, the reason why electrical appliances are vulnerable to water is because water is an electrical conductor, not the other way around.

***** Actually it glows when The Joker discovers it's Kryptonite. Prior to that, the statue was portrayed as not glowing. The small pieces of the statue left behind were glowing a tiny bit but overall the statue appeared to be jade. It's a very curious property of Kryptonite that it doesn't start to actually glow until it's being used/acknowledged as Kryptonite. Happens on {{Smallville}} all the time.

*** Besides, you know, if his plan was successful, he could sell the first half too - AFTER he used it to kill Superman. Superman's death wouldn't turn Kryptonite into lead after all.
