Superhero Clubhouse

Welcome to the Superhero Clubhouse, a Legion of Superheroes blog! The LoSH is a 31st century superhero group comprised of idealistic teenagers from across the galaxy! I'm Qulore Dox, the daughter of Brainiac 5, and I've decided to come back to the 21st century to explore the heroic deeds of the Legion and other superheroes in order to one day join the Legion myself. Feel free to look around and leave a comment or two!

Who's Who: Brainiac 5

Once a week I'll be posting a Who's Who in the Legion of Superheroes - if you want to request someone, feel free! Make sure to ask anything you'd like about these profiles as I'll go back and edit them to add in important information I may have overlooked. First up is Brainiac 5!


Light Lass: "Twelve doesn't sound like a lot. Didn't you once say Earthlings were a nine?"
Brainiac: "No. I said Earth was a nine. The whole Earth. In total."

Triplicate Girl: "Intellectually, compared to Brainy, the rest of us are lima beans."


Given Name: Querl Dox
Home Planet: Colu
Eyes: gold
Hair: blond
Appearance: average height, light green skin, somewhat athletic, usually in deep concentration
First Appearance: Action Comics #276

Brainiac 5 first appears as a Legion hopeful along with Supergirl. This is Supergirl's second attempt to join the Legion as last time she succeeded in her task but Red Kryptonite made her temporarily too old to join the superheroes. Brainy takes an instant liking to the girl of steel. During the middle of their trials he saves Kara's life by giving her his force field belt This gives her protection from a green kryptonite meteor which she summarily dispatches. Brainiac 5 receives Legion membership not only because of his exceptional abilities, but because he was willing to put his own life in danger to save Supergirl.

Abilities: 12th level intelligence

*notable creations*
flight ring
force-field belt
COMPUTO
anti-lead serum

A *VERY* Brief History

Querl Dox is the descendant of Vril Dox, the founder of L.E.G.I.O.N. and the adopted son of Brainiac. Brainiac 5 originally joined the Legion because he wanted to do good make up for some of his ancestor's past deeds. His major flaws are his inability to foresee how his experiments could pose a danger to others (such as his creation of COMPUTO which resulted in a robot revolt) and his unstable emotions. In Mark Waid's Legion he recently became obsessed with bringing Dream Girl back to life and while it seems that he may have succeeded - to an extent - his team mates are now concerned about his place amongst the team. He even revealed that he had a way to neutralize every Legionnaire.

Personal Notes

Wow, Dad can be pretty arrogant sometimes. He still regrets how much damage COMPUTO caused, especially the death of 1/3 of Triplicate Girl. Still, I think people forget that he really does care. It's thanks to him that Mon'el was cured of lead poisoning, and the invention of the Legion flight ring really advanced Legion tactics. Mom's death hit him pretty hard, and he really does try to better the world he lives in. I hope I can be half the Legionnaire he is because even that would be a fantastic accomplishment.
