Cover by Curt Swan

When Brainiac first came on the scene, this alien from the planet Colu was the sole survivor of his world, which had been wiped out by a plague.  He was stealing whole cities with which to repopulate Colu.  Superman defeated him and restored all the cities but one - Kandor, formerly the Capital of Krypton.  There was not enough of the rare element needed for the enlargement, so for many years, the bottle-city remained in Superman's Fortress.

Then the idea came to alter the Brainiac legend, making him a computer.  The story that follows was the result and reveals his complete origin.  It also marked the first teaming of Luthor and Brainiac.

Incidently, this story also introduced Ardora, referred to in this first tale as "Tharla," who would later become wife to Luthor.

The art in this story was by top Superman penciller Curt Swan and his long-standing inker, George Klein.
