NEW EARTH

In ‘Action Comics’ (2008) #868, titled “Brainiac (Part III of V) – Greetings”, Brainiac states an intelligence feat. In an attempt to stop Brainiac from invading Earth, Superman finds Brainiac’s Skull Ship. Brainiac awakens for the first time in three centuries and states his Coluan brain can process the knowledge of “over seventy times seven octodecillion beings.”1

How much intelligence does it take for Brainiac’s Coluan brain to process the knowledge of “over seventy times seven octodecillion beings.”1?

BRAINIAC’S COLUAN BRAIN CAN PROCESS THE KNOWLEDGE OF “OVER SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN OCTODECILLION BEINGS.”1

BRAINIAC’S 12TH LEVEL INTELLECT CAN PROCESS THE EQUIVALENT OF 1.225*10^75 BYTES OF INFORMATION, AND IS 1.0208333*10^57 TIMES MORE INTELLIGENT THAN THE INTERNET.

Brainiac stated a feat of intelligence to Superman: His Coluan brain can process the knowledge of seventy times seven octodecillion beings. For comparison, we used the data capacity of the Internet and of a human being.

We will use these facts to calculate how much information Brainiac can process in bytes and estimate his Intelligence Level.

NUMBER CRUNCHING

Seventy times seven octodecillion beings equals 4.9*10^59. According to ‘DC Day Explained: Brainiac’s AI Program Is The Digital Processing Of All The Information In The Galaxy’, Brainiac is listed as a 12th Level Intellect. A human being can process between 1 terabyte and 2.5 petabytes of information.

If we assume that all the beings Brainiac can process are more or less human, we can calculate how many bytes of information Brainiac can process.

Bytes Of Information in Brainiac = (4.9*10^59)(2.5*10^15 bytes)/(1 human) = 1.225*10^75 bytes.

In comparison, the Internet comprises of 1200*10^15 bytes of data. Let’s calculate how much more intelligent Brainiac is in comparison to the Internet.

Ratio Of Information/Internet = (1.225*10^75 ​bytes)/(1200*10^15 bytes) = 1.0208333*10^57.

INTELLIGENCE

When Brainiac meets Superman, awakening for the first time in three centuries, he states his A.I. is the digital conversion of the information in the Milky Way galaxy within hours.

Brainiac’s 12th Level Intellect can thus process 1.225*10^75 bytes of information at the Cosmic Level of Intelligence.

Calculations for Brainiac, ‘Action Comics’ #868

Bytes Of Information In A Human Being = 2.5*10^15 Bytes.
Bytes Of Information In The Internet = 1200*10^15 Bytes.

Bytes Of Information in Brainiac = (4.9*10^59)(2.5*10^15 bytes)/(1 human) = 1.225*10^75 bytes.
Ratio Of Information/Internet = (1.225*10^75 ​bytes)/(1200*10^15 bytes) = 1.0208333*10^57.
