A villain of the Legion of Super-Heroes
Computo was created by Brainiac 5 as part of a secret project
of the United Planets. Computo aided in its own creation. Deciding
that humanity was too inefficient, Computo decided that on taking
over the Earth. Computo successfully subdued and captured almost
all of the Legion members, killing one of the three bodies that
Triplicate Girl splits into. Computo was eventually defeated by Brainiac 5 using
an anti-matter being he brought to Earth.
Computo returned to menace the Legion. While Brainiac 5 was treating
the younger sister of Jacques Foccart for a rare disorder, Computo possessed the girl and
attacked Brainiac 5 and Foccart. To defeat Computo, Foccart took
the invisiblity formula created by Lyle Norg, Invisible Kid I. Foccart
then became Invisible Kid II.
Computo returned a third time during one of the treatments for Foccart's sister.
Brainiac 5 was ready for Computo this time, battling his creation and employing
a program he had created. The result was the destruction of the
old Legion Headquarters and its recreation with Computo having been tamed.
Computo now acts as the major domo for the Legion, something many of the
members have a difficult time with.
