My PurposeColu, my home world, is known for its brilliant minds. My people are considered to be the most intelligent beings in the universe. The Brainiac line was always their greatest achievement. They depended on us to carry them into an age of new discoveries and learning. Brainiac 4, my predecessor and mother, grew weary of a life of just accumulating knowledge. On the day I was born, she handed me over to the council members. She wanted no part of my upbringing. I was just a stumbling block to her creative pursuits. She was a disappointment to my people, but they took solace in the fact that I would one day replace her. I became a political pawn for ambitious council members. If I had succeeded in my duties, then the council members would be guaranteed lifetime council seats. Thus, I was isolated from the populace and practically raised in solitary confinement.
