Injustice 2 Gets New Trailer All About Brainiac

Today, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer NetherRealm Studios released a new overview-like Injustice 2 trailer that introduces the previously confirmed character: Brainiac.

For those that don’t know, Brainiac is DC Comics supervillian that first appeared in Action Comics issue 242 in July 1958. Commonly an adversary of Superman, Brainiac is typically depicted as an extraterrestrial android. He is one of Superman’s primary enemies, and is responsible for shrinking and stealing Kandor, the capital city of Superman’s home planet Krypton.

Here’s an overview of the character via NetherRealm:

Brainiac is a megalomaniacal genius who roams the universe, collecting knowledge to increase his intellectual and scientific prowess. Obsessed with establishing his superiority, Brainiac captured Krypton’s greatest cities, then eradicated what remained…or so he thought. Tales of the “Last Son of Krypton” have reached far into the stars. Now, the Collector of Worlds comes to Earth to finish his accumulation of Krypton — and discovers a new world worthy of his collection.

Injustice 2 is set to release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 16, 2017. Below, you can check out the new trailer and Brainiac:
