Posted in blackest night,Profiles,Sinestro Corps by mrread7 on November 11, 2009

 The current leader of the R.E.B.E.L.S and the former leader of the O.M.E.G.A Men. Who is this strange and magnificent bastard? let’s take a looksy shall we: Brainiac – originally known as the human, Milton Fine, a circus performer of negligible success and duplicitous nature. Fine’s life was forever altered when the alien consciousness of Vril Dox took control of his mind. Lex Luthor ultimately captured and revitalized Dox and used him as a weapon against Superman. Dox, however, was too powerful to stay under Luthor’s control – and ultimately broke free. Using a rejuvenated body, he eventually kept Superman at bay with his stunning telepathic powers – and fled Earth to an undetermined location.

The computer tyrants of Colu had been brain washing the populous of Colu for centuries, as a means of control. Every so often a genius was born that they would not brain wash unless he/she refused to serve them willingly (primarily because the brain washing could reduce the level of their intelect). Vril Dox (Senior) was one such genius who chose to willingly serve the tyrants.
Vril Dox Jr grew up was also spared the effects of brain washing as teh tyrants believed he would serve them to. He grew up watching his faher betray their race and despised him for it.   Studying his father’s technology,. However, Brainiac never much cared for the boy and considered him a poor prodginy. Vril developed a machine to increase his intelligence and soon was nearly as intelligent as Brainiac himself .The computer Tyrants gave him to the Dominators in order to cement an alliance between the two races when the dominators were begining the invasion of Earth.
Eventually, Vril rebelled against the Dominators, leading an escape from stalag and fought against them during their invasion of Earth. Vril then moved on to found L.E.G.I.O.N., an intergalactic police force. Using is vast intelligence, Vril became a cold, calculating leader, turning L.E.G.I.O.N. into a force to be reckoned with.  He briefly lost control of L.E.G.I.O.N TO HIS SON Lurl, and has recently lost control again to an unknown indivividual. After coming in contact with his wife, now revived as a Black Lantern he was in an area in which a Sinestro Corps member was murdered by another Black Lantern. When the ring started to search for a new host, it selected Dox, he now is part of the Sinestro Corps.
