Lex/OS and Brother Eye Connection

One of the unique marketing strategies employed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been the use of in-movie promotions and treating the fans like they are part of the DC Extended Universe.  A few months back, we got our first teaser of LexCorp’s newest product — Lex/OS.  Knowing Lex Luthor, or should I say “Lex Luthor, Jr.”, Lex/OS will be more than meets the eye (yes, pun intended).  If they’re going where I think they’re going, then this will be an ingenious move.

Did You Know?

  • Brother Eye was originally called Brother MK I which was created by Batman to keep track of metahumans.  Batman became distrustful of metahumans after he had his memories altered by the Justice League in the Identity Crisis storyline.
  • Brother Eye is sentient.  Though originally created as an artificial intelligence, the satellite went through a few evolutionary stages.  Maxwell Lord reprogrammed Brother MK I to have a fear and suspicion of all metahumans.  And Alexander Luthor, Jr. of Earth-Three was the one to give it sentience.
  • The OMACs — cyborgs created via a virus developed by LexCorp in a joint effort with the U.S. Department of Defense — were centrally controlled by Brother Eye.
