Western Animation: Superman: Brainiac Attacks
Superman: Brainiac Attacks is a Direct-to-Video movie, created to cash in on the mild-success of Superman Returns. Very heavily criticized for poor writing and acting. Needs Wiki Magic Love.

Provides Examples Of:

  • Grievous Harm with a Body: There is something weirdly funny seeing Brainiac smacking Superman around with Lex Luthor in his battle suit...
  • Large Ham: Lex Luthor.
  • Mythology Gag: Lois mentions "That Green Lantern guy" would stop Brainiac if Superman doesn't do it first.
    • "Look! Up in the sky! It is Superman!"
  • Oh Crap: Lex Luthor shouldn't have expected to be able to plant a self-destruct mechanism on a kryptonian supercomputer without it noticing...
    Lex Luthor: Oh boy.
    • Lex Luthor is practically doing this for the whole movie.
    Inform my attorneys. All of Them.
  • Same Character, But Different: It was not written to be part of the DCAU, but the Superman: The Animated Series art style was used, so it was quite jarring when some characters acted nothing like you expected, with Brainiac himself a powerful but standard-issue bad guy, and Lex Luthor being basically his old-school-film-series self.
