CGC VF: 8.0
Brainiac is a super-intelligent alien android who has a penchant for shrinking cities down and storing them in bottles. In his first appearance he captures Metropolis, but Superman escapes his imprisonment only to find that the villain has also stored his Kryptonian home city of Kandor in his menagerie in this important issue that looms large in Superman lore. Brainiac would go onto become a major player in DC's stable for years to come.

This spiffy 8.0 QES Certifed copy boasts white pages, sharp corners, and a deep, purple color strike.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF (8.0) value = $8,400.
