Awesome / Brainiac

  • In his first appearance -Action Comics #242-, Superman was unable to beat Brainiac. Superman threw chunks of planetoid at Brainiac until he ran out of planetoid. The whole time Brainiac just stood still, grinning and letting his deflector shields take the blows.
  • His androids and machines nearly manage to destroy both Superman and Supergirl during the Brainiac story arc.
