President Calvin Ellis Reveals His Most Annoying Infinite Frontier Villain

Calvin Ellis has to deal with an especially annoying version of Brainiac, but it’s the amount of time this takes away from leading Justice Incarnate that worries him.

Being Superman isn’t easy, but being both Superman and president of the United States of America is much harder. Calvin Ellis doesn’t simply try to be the example for the people of the world to follow, he tries to lead them there too. But he has to juggle being the head of a global power alongside the various threats that are native to his dimension and those outside of it while also leading Justice Incarnate. And one of his most recurring enemies, another version of Brainiac, takes more time out of his busy schedule than he can afford to give.

This particular version of Brainiac has a convoluted origin story. The Brainiac O.S. was corrupted by a weaponized algorithm created by its future and has since been a recurring thorn in this Man of Steel’s side. As Calvin put it, this thing only exists to cause trouble. And a Brainiac that only exists to sow chaos can get very creative with how it distracts its enemies. Some prime examples include sending a giant robot rampaging through the city and crashing a plane into a baseball stadium.

In fact, Brainiac O.S. attacks so frequently that Superman must now deal with them himself. Before that, he had managed to delegate the task of protecting the Earth to robotic duplicates while he dealt with greater threats. But Brainiac’s interference has severely diminished the amount of time Calvin has to devote between the government, the planet and the multiverse at large.

It has become such a problem that Calvin is even beginning to fear what could happen if he isn’t at the House of Heroes because of yet another Brainiac attack, which by all accounts, were becoming more frequent. While Superman is capable of many things, even he can’t be everywhere he is needed all at once. And considering the looming expanse of the Infinite Frontier and its darker side, this is a valid fear for Calvin to have.

In the short time since he’s joined Justice Incarnate, there have been several multiverse threatening extinction events, such as Gentry, Perpetua, and the Batman Who Laughs. After all of that, reality has been restructured and is still settling into itself. There has rarely been a time when heroes are needed to keep watch more than today. Calvin understands this and knows he has to manage his time responsibly or else everything could fall apart.

So while he is annoyed by Brainiac’s repeated intrusions in his life, he can’t ignore them or hand them off to someone else. It’s his problem to deal with. So he’ll take whatever time he has to spare to hunt down the rogue code hidden in the Shadow Web that continually harasses his Earth. It’ll take time, more than he’d like to give, but it has to be done. Just because he has a responsibility to protect the infinite versions of Earth that exist does not mean his duty to this Earth has diminished.

If anything, it has become more important than ever. Reality was almost wiped out completely and new threats and wonders are just waiting to be discovered. It’s tiring and thankless, but when has Superman ever done anything for a pat on the back? He wouldn’t be Superman if he did. Calvin Ellis will find the time to protect what matters, even if he has to make it himself. The only thing standing in his way is an especially annoying version of Brainiac.
