Brainy's greatest pleasure is reminding the other Legionnaires of the fact that he is considered a prodigy in a world of superminds, at every turn.
Brainy has also invented the flight ring technology.
Querl has at different times made attempts to usurp the Legion leadership from Cosmic Boy.
Brainiac 5, in a manner different from earlier renditions of the character, develops a close relationship with Dream Girl, who once stated that they would wed some day in the future. At first his attention consists of anger towards her powers and their unpredictability, but it develops into a close relationship and Brainiac 5 becomes infatuated with her and becomes truly caring. Brainiac 5 is visited by Lemnos, a space criminal who has the power to make you forget him completely. Brainiac 5, doing justice to his name, sends himself a picture of Lemnos so that he will never forget his face.
Brainiac 5 then takes a team of Legionnaires to his home planet of Colu. Upon their arrival they find that something is very wrong. All of the Coluans have had their brains erased... Brainiac 5's entire race has been turned stupid. Brainiac 5 visits his mother only to find her mind has been wiped as well. A monster attacks and during this attack Brainiac 5 discovers the true cause of the genocide of his race... Lemnos. Brainiac 5 sees his face and remembers their entire encounter the first time. Lemnos escapes for now.
Brainiac 5, after broadcasting a conversation between Cosmic Boy and Sun Boy, causes a fight between The Legionnaires on his side and Cosmic Boy's squad. Cosmic Boy is called back to his home planet and Brainiac 5 assumes leadership of the Legion. Before Cosmic Boy can get there, Terra Firma attacks Helegyn and Cosmic Boy returns to the Legion to help defeat Terra Firma and capture Elysion. Brainiac 5 accepts this and they move forward as allies.
When Dream Girl was crushed to death by Elysion, Brainy places her body in stasis, hoping that he one day will find a way to resurrect her. She appears in Brainy's dreams for awhile. Later, he clones Dream Girl's body, and she returns to it from the subconscious state after Brainy meets with her and proposes. When she's finally back in her physical form, Brainy and Dream Girl tell the other Legionaires that they are getting married (this is at the end of war with the Dominators).
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Genius-Level Intellect:Querl has a "12th-level intellect", which grants him superhuman calculation skills, amazing memory and exceptional technical know-how. This increased intellect gives him superior calculating abilities, an encyclopedic memory and innovating scientific knowledge. By concentrating the power and disciplined nature of his mighty mind he safely operated the extra-dimensional device known as the Miracle Machine, which converts thoughts into reality. Using it, he successfully repelled the Dark Circle armies - repairing all the damage caused by the invasion - and completed the construction of the new Legion HQ. He has played three-dimensional chess against three powerful computers, added up every number in a math textbook in seconds, retained his memories and clarity of thought after being de-aged into a tot, resisted illusion-assisted brainwashing, resisted hypnotism and adapted many inventions and experiments. By comparison, 20th century Earth as a whole constitutes a "6th-Level" intelligence. 31st century Earth as a whole is a "9th-Level" intelligence. Although most Coluans have a "12th level" intellect, Querl is considered a prodigy, that possibly comes along once in a millennium.
Average Creativity and Original Thought: While Brainiac 5 possesses a great intellect, memory and scientific knowledge, he is still limited by his human creativity and ability for original thought.
