"Smallville: Homecoming (#10.4)" (2010)
Brainiac 5: I'm only here for you. I wanted to slow things down. Make sure you can soak in this special moment.
Clark Kent: And what's so special about this moment?
Brainiac 5: This is the moment that your life changes forever.

Brainiac 5: Not every man is destined to find a woman like Lois.
Clark Kent: She's definitely one of a kind. I know why you sent me here now.
Brainiac 5: I had intended to be here *with* you, but you interfered with the ring.
Clark Kent: You wanted me to see how things would be with Lois and the... flying.
Brainiac 5: I wanted you to see that your darkness lies not only dwelling in your past, but in fearing the future.
Clark Kent: I've always hoped my life would be like this. With Lois and with all of it. I guess lately I've stopped believing that it could actually happen.
Brainiac 5: Well, that's up to you, isn't it? You don't need to worry about the future, Kal-El. You can see that it's just fine as long as you shed the weight of the past. Just next time you decide to defy me, don't strand me back in the dark ages.

Brainiac 5: It's time to move on from the past. Leave Clark Kent to me.

Clark Kent: I don't know if you're a ghost from my past or the darkness Jor-El that warned me about, but this will come to an end, just like I did the last time.
Brainiac 5: I hope so for your sake.
Clark Kent: *My* sake? You sent the person I love away. You tried to destroy Chloe, you tried to destroy the world.
Brainiac 5: And you saved me from all of that, Kal-El. I have come back to do the same for you.
[shows wearing a Legion ring]
Clark Kent: The Legion. You're from the future. What'd you do to them?
Brainiac 5: I joined them. In the 31st century, I'm known as Brainiac 5. The ring, time travel - all my creations. I brought the league into a new realm of heroism.
Clark Kent: I helped them destroy you.
Brainiac 5: No. They helped you cure me. The problem is Kal-El, you and I aren't very different. We were both created in one way or another by Jor-El, both intended to save civilizations, to bring peace to a brutal world. But neither was immune to corruption to darkness.
Clark Kent: What does that mean? All of sudden everyone's telling me that I have darkness within me. I don't understand what it is or how I'm suppose to change it. You destroyed cities. I may not make the right decisions, but at least I'm trying to save people.
Brainiac 5: Then let me show you, Kal-El. We can't always see it in ourselves, my corruption started with a nanobyte - smaller than the eye can see. But that's all it took.

Clark Kent: I guess you're right. I've been so buried by the mistakes of my past and so worried about the responsibilities of the future, I lost sight of the present.
Brainiac 5: A hero is made in the moment, not from questioning the past or fearing what's to come. Just remember that, Kal-El.


"Justice League: Far from Home (#5.10)" (2006)
[Supergirl, Green Lantern and Green Arrow have just arrived in the future]
Brainiac 5: [greeting them] I'm certain that this must be disorienting for you. My name is...
Supergirl: [viciously] Brainiac!
Brainiac 5: Yes, how did you...? Uh oh.
[Brainiac 5 shields himself as Supergirl attacks him]

Brainiac 5: Yes, I am a Brainiac, but I'm not a machine. I'm organic. The universe-conquering Brainiac you knew is my distant ancestor. Over time he learned to pass his code down biologically. I am Brainiac 5. Think of me as the black sheep of my family, dedicated to doing good to make up for my ancestor's legacy of evil.
Green Lantern: And you demonstrated that by - kidnapping us.

Green Arrow: Admit it, genius, you're in love with her.
Brainiac 5: Ludicrous, we've just met. Moreover, as a Coluan, I'm ruled by intellect, not emotion.
Green Arrow: So in love with her.
Brainiac 5: Increased sweat gland production, shortness of breath, inability to concentrate, I thought it was guilt... but I am in love. How did you know?
Green Arrow: Just call me Cupid, junior. I never miss.

Brainiac 5: What do you pilot back home?
Supergirl: Usually just a pick-up.
Brainiac 5: A pick-up, is that a type of star cruiser?
Green Arrow: Yes. Yes, it is.
