Powers/Abilities: Cerebrac was programmed to serve the needs of Master Menace and his allies, providing food and drinks and acting as Master Menace's personal secretary.

 

History: (Squadron Supreme#6) - Cerebrax tended to Master Menace's guests Mink, Pinball and Remnant while they stayed at his laboratory, serving the trio drinks to keep them comfortable. He alerted Master Menace when the three of them demanded that he meet with them.

 

(Squadron Supreme: Death of a Universe) - As Master Menace came to realize that the universe was doomed, Cerebrac arrived with his meal. Master Menace refused to take it, as he intended to leave Earth-S. He told Cerebrac to look after his possessions, but Cerebrac alerted Master Menace to the arrival of the Scarlet Centurion, who had come to aid Earth-S against the threat of the Nth Man. As the two plotted, Cerebrac brought them drinks, then warned Master Menace of the approach of Hyperion.

 

 

 

Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Paul Ryan, Sam DeLa Rosa and Keith Williams.

    Cerebrac's name is reminiscent of Brainiac, the computer foe of Superman who often teamed with Lex Luthor. Since Master Menace is the Earth-S equivalent of Luthor, perhaps Cerebrac is its Brainiac? Perhaps he was once a foe of Hyperion's, but Master Menace simplified his program into something that would obey him?

    It could be that Cerebrac and Cerebrax are two different robots, given their different configurations, but it might be that Gruenwald forgot the name he'd used.
