Steve: I have to agree with your choice here.
Zack: Picture a windy night. You're tucked in your bed. A branch keeps tap-tapping on your window and casting sinister shadows across your bedroom. Just when you can't take it anymore it stops. Then lightning crashes and there is a beholder pressed up against your window. A huge frigging evil eye peering into your bedroom. Watching you sleep.
Steve: You don't need to sell me. I don't like eyeballs or snakes and this thing can also disintegrate an entire party.
Zack: Alright, pop quiz. If you could have any body part fly away and become giant, which would it be?Steve: Is this flying body part malevolent?
Zack: As the day is long.
Steve: Then I'm going with whatever body part can cause the least damage.
Zack: I'd go tonsils. If one of my body parts has to become evil and fly away I'm going with the one I know I can live without.
Steve: I wonder if Beholders have a Beholder school and the goof-off Beholder has a bunch of monocles with eyes painted on the front so it can sleep while everything thinks it's paying close attention.Zack: The answer to all questions related to Beholder High is, "Yes."

There's a Brainiac. He's not THE Brainiac. However, he's one aspect of Brainiac. Or maybe there's supposed to be a different Brainiac in every universe and they're all cosmically connected, presumably via their brains. Either way, I think this particular Brainiac is the boss Brainiac.
I highly recommend Windows 10 With Mouse + Keyboard Support Edition
