Cyborg, Dr. Magnus and the Metal Men attack Grid near Happy Harbor. Grid retaliates with the Secret Society. After the death of Mercury, the battle is on between Cyborg and Grid.
The battle to decide who is the true cyborg!
The fight starts out with Cyborg and Grid in a stalemate with their sonic cannons. After an explosion, Grid connects to Cyborg’s forehead and sends him into the digital dimension.
CYBORG ENERGY MANIPULATION – EXPLOSION ATTACKS: 6 DAMAGE PTS – 5 DAMAGE PTS = 1 DAMAGE PT.
GRID ENERGY MANIPULATION + REALITY WARPING – EXPLOSION ATTACKS = 6 DAMAGE PTS + 8 DAMAGE PTS – 5 DAMAGE PTS = 9 DAMAGE PTS.
On the following pages, Cyborg lands a reality-warping attack by destroying Grid’s digital body. Grid recovers and lands three reality-warping attacks by scratching and destroying Cyborg’s digital body..
CYBORG REALITY-WARPING – REGENERATION ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS – 3 DAMAGE PTS = 5 DAMAGE PTS.
GRID REALITY-WARPING ATTACKS x 3 = 24 DAMAGE PTS.
The battle kicks into high gear when Grid turns Cyborg into his human form with reality-warping attacks. Accepting his human form, Cyborg deals Grid with one final reality-warping attack, disconnecting Grid by leaving it in the dark. Then, Grid goes offline.
GRID REALITY-WARPING + INTERNAL BLEEDING ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS + 3 DAMAGE PTS = 11 DAMAGE PTS.
CYBORG REALITY-WARPING + BATTLE FIELD REMOVAL ATTACKS = 8 DAMAGE PTS + 6 DAMAGE PTS = 14 DAMAGE PTS.

IN DC DAY EXPLAINED
BRAINIAC’S AI IS A 12TH LEVEL INTELLECT THAT IS PROGRAMMED TO PROCESS THE INFORMATION OF THE GALAXY
In ‘Action Comics’ (2000) #868, Superman makes first contact with Brainiac’s main AI aboard the Brainiac Skull Ship. Brainiac reveals his programming for the first time. His programming is to process the information of the galaxy within hours. Brainiac’s information processing is impressive since his Coluan brain can process the knowledge of “over seventy times seven octodecillion beings.”1
Brainiac’s programming causes him to seek the entirety of knowledge of a given culture or civilization. When he learnt that the last Kryptonian was alive, Brainiac sought to capture him in order to process his information and complete his knowledge of Krypton. The reality is that Brainiac’s AI eradicates every culture whose information it processes. Hence, when it found Superman, Brainiac sought to process his information since he had already bottled Kandor and Argo. In fact, Brainiac is a 12th level intellect and is known to be the most intelligent being in the DC Universe.
A 12th level intellect is a term that was used to describe some of the smartest people in the universe. Metron claimed that only a 12th level intellect could have the slightest hope of solving the Anti-Life Equation and survive.– 12th level intellect, DCAU Wiki
BRAINIAC’S 12TH LEVEL INTELLECT FAR SURPASSES THE INFORMATION OF THE INTERNET
Brainiac’s 12th level intellect can process the knowledge of “over seventy times seven octodecillion beings.”1 Knowledge is a function of neural information and it can be stated that Brainiac’s AI far surpasses the information on Earth’s Internet.
When converted in bytes, Brainiac’s AI processes 1.225*1075 bytes of information. In comparison, the Internet accounts for at least 1,200 petabytes of information. In fact, Brainiac is about 1057 times more intelligent than the Internet.
“…Most computational neuroscientists tend to estimate human storage capacity somewhere between 10 terabytes and 100 terabytes, though the full spectrum of guesses ranges from 1 terabyte to 2.5 petabytes. (One terabyte is equal to about 1,000 gigabytes or about 1 million megabytes; a petabyte is about 1,000 terabytes.)–Information storage in the brain, AI Impacts
