Voice actor Corey Burton reprises his role of Brainiac in "Message in a Bottle," Saturday's new episode of Kids' WB!'s Legion of Super Heroes.

Burton voiced Brainiac for the first time more than 11 years ago for the premiere of Superman: The Animated Series on Sept. 6, 1996.

"Brainiac is such a tasty character -- so effortless, so wonderfully still and quiet," Burton said. "It really allows me to play great subtleties. The words perform themselves with a character like that."

Burton, who is also playing Megatron in Cartoon Network's new Transformers series, said the voice is a bit of a homage to famous science-fiction voices.

"It's just my basic mental image of a robotic intelligence, based partly on the Hal 9000 from 2001, and the detached narration from the original Outer Limits," he said. "The voice is very arresting in its quietness -- that makes it that much more frightening."

In "Message in a Bottle," Superman and the Legion must venture into the bottled city of Kandor in order to stop Imperiex, who seeks an advanced Kryptonian technology believed to be hidden inside. In order to help the Legion and clear his "family" name, Brainiac 5 must delve deep into his memory banks to access information from the original Brainiac.

"I always thought Brainiac was the coolest character," Burton said. "He's completely detached from the violence -- to him, it's just a consciousness. He doesn't breathe, he doesn't struggle -- it's just the pure vibration of the words themselves that make his delivery so cold and emotionless."
