Due to complex storylines involving time travel, cloning, and revisions of DCs continuity, several variations of Brainiac have appeared. Most incarnations of Brainiac depict him as a green-skinned being in humanoid form. He is bald, except for a set of diodes protruding from his skull. The character is the origin of the informal eponymous word which means genius. The name itself is a portmanteau of the words brain and maniac, with influence from ENIAC, the name of an early computer. In 2009, Brainiac was ranked as IGNs 17th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time. Brainiacs first appearance in Action Comics #242.
